Colloquia

The Pure Math colloquium is held roughly every other week during the fall and winter terms. The talks are at 4:00 pm on Mondays in the Math and Computer Building (MC) 5501, and are preceded by refreshments with the speaker at 3:30 pm in MC 5403.

 

Upcoming colloquia


This talk has been cancelled. Sadly we have learned that Professor Buchweitz passed away recently. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Title: Integrability and non-integrability in pentagram maps
Abstract: We define pentagram maps on polygons in any dimension, which extend R. Schwartz's definition of the 2D pentagram map. Many of those maps turn out to be discrete integrable dynamical systems, while the corresponding continuous limits of such maps coincide with equations of the KdV hierarchy, generalizing the Boussinesq equation in 2D. We discuss their geometry, Lax forms, and interrelations between recent pentagram generalizations. This is a joint work with F. Soloviev.
