"Hyperplane Arrangements and Compactifying the Milnor Fiber"
Milnor fibers are invariants that arise in the study of hypersurface singularities. A major open conjecture predicts that for hyperplane arrangements, the Betti numbers of the Milnor fiber depend only on the combinatorics of the arrangement. I will discuss how tropical geometry can be used to study related invariants, the virtual Hodge numbers of a hyperplane arrangement's Milnor fiber. This talk is based on joint work with Max Kutler.

Building on previous preliminary results on the valuative tree at infinity (e.g., classification of valuations), I will describe the proof of MedvedevScanlonZhang conjecture for polynomial endomorphisms of the affine plane given by Junyi Xie in 2017.

"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.

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.
