Modelling correlated count data-can I delete the zeroes?
Gary Sneddon (Mount Saint Vincent)
Correlated count data with excess zeroes arise in a number of applications. We will discuss 3 motivating examples, and some approaches to modelling these type of data. Covid-19 may be mentioned, so be prepared. This is joint work with Tariqul Hasan and Renjun Ma of UNB (Fredericton).
The Shooter’s Hill Decorative Tiles: Combinatorics as Art
Karyn McLellan (Mount Saint Vincent)
This talk will explore some of the art and mathematics inspired by a mistakenly (?) placed stone tile on a terraced house in London. A set of 70 Truchet-type tiles are the building blocks for various art pieces, including an inkle loom weaving. In particular, we are interested in whether or not we can weave an overlapping strip containing all 70 tiles exactly once, and if so, how many such strips exist. Other combinatorial properties of the tiles are examined as well. Joint work with Eva Knoll(UQAM) and Danielle Cox (MSVU).
