"On the model theory of geodesic differential equations II"

Geodesic differential equations form a classical family of differential equations, describing the free movement of a particle in a curved space. The purpose of this talk, divided in two parts, is to describe the possible model-theoretic behavior of such differential equations when the space is compact with negative curvature.

"Numerical Ranges and Dilation"

In this talk, we present some results concerning the use of numerical ranges to study dilation theory of operators. Connections of the study to quantum information science will be mentioned. Open problems will be discussed.

"On the model theory of geodesic differential equations I"

Geodesy is an old and well-established subject in mathematics. Given a smooth manifold $S$ embedded in the Euclidean space $\mathbb R^n$ and two points on $S$, the main question is to determine the shortest path (geodesic) drawn on $S$ joining these two points.

"The Jump of a Structure"

Given a structure $\mathcal{A}$, we define another structure $\mathcal{A}'$ (in a different language) which we call the jump of $\mathcal{A}$. The main idea from the definition is to have that the first jump degree spectrum of $\mathcal{A}$ is exactly the degree spectrum of $\mathcal{A}$.

"Polynomial and rational density on compact real manifolds"

I will discuss some recent results concerning approximation of continuous complex-valued functions on abstract compact real manifolds by polynomial and rational combinations of a certain number of smooth functions on them. Somewhat surprisingly, the proofs use deep ideas from complex analysis to symplectic topology.
