“Points in the Plane”

Nothing too fancy today: let us simply study schemes supported on finite subsets of the complex plane. Along the way, we will talk about Hilbert functions, Hilbert polynomials, families of schemes and maybe even something about moduli.

Monday, March 7, 2016 — 4:00 PM EST

"Word Measures on Groups"

Let w be a word in the free group on k generators, and let G be

a finite (compact) group. The word w induces a measure on G by

substituting the letters of w with k independent uniformly

(respectively Haar) random elements of G and evaluating the

product.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
