Yuming Zhao, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Positivity and sum-of-squares"

Thursday, September 29, 2022 — 2:30 PM EDT

Izar Alonso Lorenzo, Oxford University

"Balanced SU(3)-structures and coclosed $G_2$-structures in cohomogeneity one manifolds"

Thursday, September 29, 2022 — 1:00 PM EDT

Sean Monahan, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Colours of horospherical varieties"

We are continuing with the basics of horospherical varieties. In this talk I plan to discuss colours of horospherical varieties, and we will start to see their role in the combinatorial description of horospherical varieties.

This seminar will be held jointly online and in person:

Jerry Wang, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"An improvement to the Schmidt bound"

Counting number fields of fixed degree and bounded discriminant is a classical question in arithmetic statistics. The problem is known in degrees at most 5. In this talk, we will talk about an improvement to Schmidt's upper bound for general degree n, which beats existing improvements for n up to 94. This is joint work with Manjul Bhargava and Arul Shankar.

This seminar will be held jointly online and in person:

Benoit Charbonneau, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Hyperkähler structure of bow varieties"

My aim is to discuss some of the background material necessary to understand the recent paper of Roger Bielawski, Yannic Borchard, and Sergey Cherkis titled “Deformations of instanton metrics” (https://arxiv.org/abs/2208.14936).

"$p$-Adic interpolation of orbits under rational maps"

Rivera-Letelier’s characterization of possible analytic uniformizations of $p$-adic analytic maps has played an important role within arithmetic dynamics over the past fifteen years. The characterization is given by a trichotomy of indifferent, attracting and superattracting cases near a fixed point of a map.

Andy Zucker, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Polish partition principles and the Halpern-Lauchli theorem"

Thursday, September 22, 2022 — 1:00 PM EDT

Sean Monahan, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Introduction to horospherical varieties"

We will begin the seminar with an introduction to horospherical varieties. In this talk we will define horospherical varieties, and we will (at least start to) discuss their “colours”.

This seminar will be held jointly online and in person:

Rachael Alvir, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Scott Complexity"

"On the Solubility of Diophantine Systems"

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 — 2:30 PM EDT

This will be an organizational meeting for the Differential Geometry Working Seminar. Please contact Spiro Karigiannis with any questions.

Kevin Hare, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Matrix based number system"

Most number systems are of the form $a_k d^k + a_{k-1} d^{k-1} + … + a_0$ where the $a_i$ are taken from a finite set of digits, and $d$ is the base of the number system.

In this talk we will discuss what happens if $d$ is taken to be a $n \times n$ Jordan block and $a_i$ are taken to be vectors.

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 — 1:30 PM EDT

Organizational Meeting

The algebraic geometry working seminar is starting up again for the term with a meeting to discuss scheduling. Anyone interested in the seminar but unable to attend the meeting should email Eric at etboulter@uwaterloo.ca with any conflicts. This seminar is primarily aimed at grad students and post docs in algebraic geometry and related fields, but all are welcome to attend. 

This seminar will be held jointly online and in person:

Monday, September 12, 2022 — 2:30 PM EDT

"Four-Manifolds, Conformal Curvature, and Differential Topology"

Thursday, September 8, 2022 — 4:00 PM EDT
