"A classification of approximately subhomogeneous C*-algebras"

Thursday, February 13, 2014 — 4:30 PM EST

"GENERATINGFUNCTIONOLOGY"

This talk is a homage to the late Professor Herbert Wilf's book of the same title. We will discuss several elementary counting problems and solve them using generating functional techniques. I will also include several identities that have appeared in my own work as well as in some prominent papers in number theory.

"The Theta Correspondence and Periods of Automorphic Forms"

The study of periods of automorphic forms using the theta correspondence

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 — 2:30 PM EST

Jason Bell, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Automorphisms of projective varieties and potential density, II"

In the second talk, we'll discuss Skolem's method and the analytic arc theorem as a means of studying the action of the automorphism group on a variety.  If time remains, we'll apply this method to show that if X is a surface defined over a number field and X has an automorphism that does not preserve a non-constant fibration then there is a number field K such that the K-points of X are Zariski dense.

"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.

"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

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.
