"Intro to Knots and Knot Invariants"

Thursday, November 26, 2020 — 1:00 PM EST

Lei Alice Chen, California Institute of Technology

"Actions of Homeo and Diffeo groups on manifolds"

In this talk, I discuss the general question of how to obstruct and construct group actions on manifolds. I will focus on large groups like Homeo(M) and Diff(M) about how they can act on another manifold N. The main result is an orbit classification theorem, which fully classifies possible orbits. I will also talk about some low dimensional applications and open questions. This is a joint work with Kathryn Mann.

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 — 2:30 PM EST

Yifeng Huang, University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

"A generating function for counting mutually annihilating matrices over a finite field"

Monday, November 23, 2020 — 4:00 PM EST

Gigliola Staffilani, MIT

"The many faces of dispersive equations"

Friday, November 20, 2020 — 2:30 PM EST

Ákos Nagy, University of California Santa Barbara

"The asymptotic geometry of G_2-monopoles"

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 — 10:00 AM EST

Seda Albayrak, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Sparse Automatic Sets"

I will present results in the theory of sparse automatic sets in three different contexts: the theory of algebraic power series, unlikely intersections, and the theory of representations in additive bases.

Online

Friday, November 13, 2020 — 2:30 PM EST

Joe Driscoll, University of Leeds

"Deformations of Asymptotically Conical G2-Instantons"

Tuesday, November 3, 2020 — 11:00 AM EST

Chris Sangwin, University of Edinburgh

"Assessing students' proofs online"

In this seminar I will describe how we, at the University of Edinburgh, have tried to help students learn proof through online assessment. This is ongoing work, driven by a practical need and constrained by current technology which cannot automatically assess students' free form proof. The seminar will discuss the nature of elementary proof more generally.

Monday, November 2, 2020 — 4:00 PM EST

Andreas Thom, Technische Universität Dresden

"Finitary approximation properties of groups"

Motivated by the study of equations over groups, I will explain various finitary approximation properties of groups. Related to this, old questions of Ulam will reappear and we will motivate and discuss the notion of stability of solutions and almost solutions to algebraic equations.
