Cameron Williams, Pure Mathematics & Cameron Marcott, Combinatorics Optimization, University of Waterloo

"Cameron and Cameron Present the Cyclic Sieving Phenomena with Cameron and Cameron "

We show how basic representation theory can be used to count the fixed points of a set under the action of a cyclic group. This basic representation theory has deep combinatorial applications only recently described as the "cyclic sieving phenomena".

“About a closure property of pomonoids”

I shall prove that a subpomonoid U of a pomonoid S is closed (in S) iff U is such as a monoid.

Jing-Jing Huang, University of Toronto

"Rational points near manifold and Diophantine approximation"

It is well known that sharp estimates on the number of rational
points near manifold can lead to solutions of some long standing

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 — 2:30 PM EST

Julian Rosen, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Curves on abelian surfaces"

This talk will begin with an introduction to abelian varieties, which are projective varieties having the structure of an abelian group. Abelian varieties of dimension 1 are elliptic curves. Our focus will be on abelian varieties of dimension 2.

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 — 10:30 AM EST

Ehsaan Hossain, University of Waterloo

"PMATH 499: Lie Algebras"

Continuing our discussion of solvable Lie algebras. The intention is to work through a proof of Engel's Theorem on nilpotent algebras. If you weren't there last week, no worries! You didn't miss much.

Monday, January 20, 2014 — 4:00 PM EST

Keith Kearnes, University of Colorado Boulder

“Finitely based algebras”

A law is a universally quantified equation, such as the associative law or the commutative law. I intend to talk about the problem of determining which algebras have a finite basis for their laws. Most of my talk will be about the laws of finite algebras.

Alexandru Nica, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

“Double-ended queues and joint moments of left-right canonical operators on full Fock space”

Thursday, January 16, 2014 — 4:30 PM EST

Blake Madill, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

Abstract

In showing that finite idempotent algebras generating a congruence meet-semidistributive variety have bounded width, our first step is to reduce the consideration of arbitrary constraint networks to those where the constraints are at most binary.
