****Rescheduled from April 19. Note new day/time/room****

**Shubham Dwivedi, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo**

"A gradient flow of isometric $G_2$ structures"

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 — 3:30 PM EDT

**Michael Deveau, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo**

"Non-triviality of the Bounded Jump Hierarchy - Part 3"

We finish the proof that for all $B$, there is some set $A$ with $B <_{bT} A <_{bT} B^b$. We determine $\hat{h}_A$ and $\hat{h}_C$ as promised, taking into account the restrictions imposed by the construction, and prove that our choices are correct.

"Asymptotic valued differential fields and differential-henselianity"

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 — 3:30 PM EDT

**Clifford Bearden, University of Texas at Tyler**

"A module version of the weak expectation property"

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 — 3:30 PM EDT

**Michael Deveau, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo**

"Non-triviality of the Bounded Jump Hierarchy - Part 2"

We continue with the proof that for all $B$, there is some set $A$ with $B <_{bT} A <_{bT} B^b$. We start the main construction itself, check that the requirements eventually settle and are met, and we investigate the correct $\hat{h}_A$ and $\hat{h}_C$ as promised.

"A curious system of second order nonlinear PDEs for $\mathrm{U}(m)$-structures on manifolds"

Thursday, April 4, 2019 — 12:00 PM EDT

**Nick Manor, Unviersity of Waterloo**

"Exact Groups"

There are two notions of exactness for groups, but they are not known to be equivalent outside the discrete case. I will show how we can extend this equivalence to include two larger classes of groups.

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.
