“Complete Ricci-flat Kahler metrics on resolutions of singularities”

We will discuss some existence results for complete Calabi-Yau metrics on crepant resolutions of singularities, and use these results to give simple examples of ALF Ricci-flat manifolds.

“Modular forms, ABC and effective unit equation”

In this talk I will give a brief overview of a known approach to the ABC conjecture using modular forms. Then I will explain how this approach actually gives a partial result for the ABC conjecture and Szpiro’s conjecture. As a consequence, we will obtain a new effective proof of the finiteness of solutions to the S-unit equation, which does not involve linear forms in logarithms. This is joint work with Ram Murty.

"Some aspects of Cantor sets"

For every positive, decreasing, summable sequence $a = (a_i)$, we can  
construct a Cantor set $C_a$ associated with $a$. These Cantor sets  
are not necessarily self-similar. Their dimensional properties and  
measures have been studied in terms of the sequence $a$.

In this thesis, we extend these results to a more general collection
