Will Rushworth, McMaster University
"Ascent concordance"
Artour Tomberg, Western University
"Irreducible vector bundles on hyperkähler twistor spaces"
Steven Lazzaro, McMaster University
"NIP VIII"
We continue section 3.1.2 of Simon's Guide to NIP Theories.
MC 5413
Dan Ursu, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Relative C*  simplicity"
Eric Boulter, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Plane Old Tilings"
Kateryna Tatarko, University of Alberta
"Geometric methods in isoperimetric problems and random matrix theory"
Luke MacLean, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Ramsey's Theorem"
We will discuss two different proofs of Ramsey's Theorem and compare their reverse mathematical strength.
MC 5413
Kübra Benli, University of Georgia
"On the number of small prime power residues"
James Freitag, University of Illinois at Chicago
"Model theory, automorphic functions, and differential equations"

Sam Kim, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Some logical aspects of hyperrigidity of operator systems"
Andrew Zimmer, Louisiana State University
"Intrinsic and extrinsic geometries in several complex variables"
Brett Nasserden, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Preparing for polynomial dynamics of the affine plane"
We will begin applying our knowledge of the valuative tree to the case of polynomial dynamics of the affine plane. Our goal is to begin understanding when a dominant polynomial morphism of the affine plane has a zariski dense orbit.

Henry Yuen, University of Toronto
"Connes’ Embedding Problem through the lens of complexity theory"
Dan Ursu, Pure Math Department, University of Waterloo
"Relative C*Simplicity"
Boyu Li, University of Victoria
"Amenable and Nonamenable Semigroups"
Since Nica introduced the notion of amenability of quasilattice ordered semigroups, the amenability for many classes of semigroups remain unanswered. We will give a brief overview of semigroup amenability, and show some recent developments on this topic using dilation theory. In particular, we shall show that Artin monoids are nonamenable except the class of rightangled. This is a joint work with Marcelo Laca.

"NIP VI"
We finish section 2.2.2 of Simon's Guide to NIP theories and move on to 2.2.3.
MC 5413
Alexandru Nica, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Free probabilistic aspects of meandric systems"
Andrej Vukovic, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
We continue where last week's discussion left off by discussing the classification of semivaluations in the valuative tree. Then we return to our study of plane polynomial dynamics.

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 Indigenous Initiatives Office.
