"Deformations of Nearly G_2 instantons - Part 2"

In this talk we will discuss the deformation theory for instantons on  seven-manifolds with nearly parallel G_2-structure of type-I. We will see how the space of perturbations of instantons can be identified with the eigenspaces of the Dirac operatior, which can be used to prove that all the irreducible instantons with semisimple structure group are rigid.

"Cartan Triples"

Cartan MASAs in von Neumann algebras have been well-studied since the pioneering work of Feldman and Moore in the 1970's. The presence of a Cartan MASA in a a given von Neumann algebra $\mathcal{M}$ is useful for understanding the structure of $\mathcal{M}$. Cartan MASAs arise when applying the group measure space construction with a countable group $\Gamma$ acting essentially freely on the measure space $(X,\mu)$.

"Quotient singularities"

Singularities of algebraic varieties which are quotients of a vector space by a finite group provide interesting connections between algebraic geometry, representation theory, and group theory.  I will discuss this circle of ideas with a focus on applications to algebraic geometry.

"Definabilization"

Given an affine variety, scheme, or algebraic space defined over the complex numbers one may construct an associated definable analytic space in a functorial manner. With this definabilization functor in hand it becomes possible to compare categories of algebraic coherent sheaves and definable coherent sheaves. We will explain the constructions above and discuss why it is interesting from a geometric perspective.

Levon Haykazyan, University of Waterloo

"Pseudo-finite sets and dimension, Part 8"

I'll talk about unimodularity. It was introduced by Hrushovski in early 90s as a generalisation of local finiteness. Unimodularity has recently reappeared in the pseudo-finite setting as a tool to develop intersection theory.

"Diagrammatic Methods in Topology"

A recent tool for understanding 4-manifolds is something called a “trisection.” These have the interesting advantage of changing problems about 4-manifolds to problems of combinatorics on surfaces. This talk will be an (accessible) tourist’s guide to some background and similar ideas from low(er) dimensional topology: Heegaard splittings and diagrams. Time permitting, we’ll also introduce a trisection and discuss some recent developments.

"Dualizing structures that are necessarily of infinite signature, part 3: the gory details"

In this lecture I will finish Pitkethly’s proof that her schizophrenic pair is in fact a dualizing pair.  If time remains, I’ll sketch the proof that the term operations of the algebra are not determined by any finite-signature alter ego.
