We will begin by recalling the “downtoearth” computation of the cohomol ogy groups of a cyclic group with coefficients in Z from an earlier talk. Then we will show how the Lyndon / Hochschild  Serre spectral sequence can be used to obtain the known result.
Time permitting we will show how the same technique can be used to compute the cohomology groups of a dihedral group with coefficients in Z.

For toric manifolds, Lagrangian Floer theory of its torus fibers has deep relations to quantum cohomology, and mirror symmetry, where the mirror is described by LG superpotential W. We will give gentle introduction on this field, and discuss the extension to the case of toric orbifolds.

We give a proof of Cholak, Jockush, and Slaman that there is an ωmodel of RT2 consisting entirely of low2 sets.

I will go through Chapter 2 of Tian's paper in detail, on Price's monotonicity formula, Uhlenbeck's curvature estimates, and singular YangMills connections.

One of the most interesting applications of (algebraic) Galois theory, and perhaps why it all started, is that it translates the problem of solving polynomials by radicals to grouptheoretic questions (in which we sometimes have an easier way to find an answer, e.g. finite groups).

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
