Spiro Karigiannis, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Intro to Calibrations, Instantons, and Branes"

Tuesday, November 11, 2014 — 10:30 AM EST

Ross Willard, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Adding Gaussian elimination to local consistency checking - 5"

In this fifth of several lectures, I continue the analysis of
singular pairs of variables, studying their effect on the congruence
lattice of their associated constraint relation.

James A. Mingo, Queen’s University

“Freeness and the Transpose”

Friday, November 7, 2014 — 2:30 PM EST

Xiangwen Zhang, Columbia University 

“ALEXANDROV’S UNIQUENESS THEOREM FOR CONVEX SURFACES”

Friday, November 7, 2014 — 1:00 PM EST

Suzanne Findleton, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Gluing constructions and separated schemes"

In this talk, we explain how one can obtain new schemes by gluing together a collection of schemes. This is known as the "gluing construction", which can produce for example projective n-space over a given ring. We also introduce the notion of a separated scheme and explain its relation to Hausdorffness.

David McKinnon, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

“Integral points on punctured varieties”

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 — 1:30 PM EST

Ehsaan Hossain, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

“Goodbye K0 ... Hello K1!”

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 — 1:00 PM EST

Jonathan Herman, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Totally Geodesic Immersions"

Given an isometric immersion, we will study further how the second  
fundamental form allows the geometry in the ambient space to be  
decomposed into geometry on the tangent and normal bundles. In  
particular, we'll discuss the Gauss-Codazzi equations. In the second  
part of the talk, we will look at totally geodesic immersions and some

“Adding Gaussian elimination to local consistency checking - 4”

Monday, November 3, 2014 — 4:00 PM EST

Benjamin Steinberg, City College of New York

"Groupoid algebras and C*-algebras"

Groupoid C*-algebras form a unifying framework for a number of classes of C*-algebras including commutative ones, group C^*-algebras, group action cross products and Cuntz-Krieger, or graph, C*-algebras. Often purely algebraic properties of these algebras can be understood in terms of the groupoids, e.g., simplicity, Morita equivalence, the primitive ideal structure.
