"An AMS recorded lecture by Cliff Taubes from 1995"

We will watch an AMS recorded lecture from 1995 by Cliff Taubes about gauge theory, Donaldson invariants, and Seiberg-Witten invariants. This talk is just under two hours long. We will start at 9:30am and possibly take a short break halfway through. The video can be found here: http://www.math.stonybrook.edu/Videos/Einstein/455-19950101-Taubes.html

In the before times the Pure Math department held a regular Number Theory seminar.  It would be nice to restart this seminar in the Fall term.  As this is a restart of the seminar, we do not need to conform to previous models.  I felt it would be easiest to have an organizational seminar next week to discuss the various options and gather feedback on the best format.  Some thoughts to think about

Nic Banks, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Inverse Galois Theory of Elliptic Curves"

The Inverse Galois Problem asks which finite groups appear as Galois groups of extensions of the rational numbers. The problem was first systematically investigated in 1892 by Hilbert, but the essential ideas were in the mathematical community since Galois enunciated his groundbreaking theory in the 1830s.
