“Varieties versus schemes”

Last week, we saw the definition of a scheme. In this weeks talk, well present more examples of schemes and illustrate how, in some cases, schemes provide a better framework than varieties for studying certain geometric questions.

"There are no two non-real conjugates of a Pisot number with the same imaginary part"

In this talk, we will present the results from the recent arXiv paper by A. Dubickas, K. G. Hare and J. Jankauskas on the solution of three and four term linear equations in the conjugates of a Pisot number.

"Adding Gaussian elimination to local consistency checking - 2"

In this second of several lectures, I will present a polynomial-time consistency checking algorithm for constraint networks over a finite template having a Taylor polymorphism. I conjecture that the algorithm is complete for Maltsev templates, and in future lectures will provide evidence supporting this conjecture.

"Torsion-free groups: linear independence and computable categoricity"

We continue through Melnikov's survey paper on Computable  
Abelian Groups. We use the effective analysis of linear independence
(discussed before by Sam) to characterize computable categoricity. We
go through the proof that "Every computable torsion-free
