Hongdi Huang, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
In this very kickoff talk, we will go through section 1.1. We aim to recall/learn some basic notions of manifolds with boundary and orientations, and Morse functions in the section. We also introduce the slightly nonstandard notion of inboundary and outboundary, which is particularly convenient for the treatment of cobordisms. Besides, we will take about the outline and the goals of this seminar.
MC 5417
There will be an organizational meeting of the Geometry Working Seminar on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at 11:00 am in MC 5413.

"Approximating reals by rationals"
Andrej Vukovic, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
This week, we continue our study of topological quantum field theories by discussing Morse theory and introducing the notion of cobordism.

"Deformation theory of nearly G_2 manifolds"
I will start by describing nearly G_2 manifolds and the infinitesimal deformations of nearly G_2 structures. I will describe the results of Alexandrov and Semmelmann on the deformations of nearly G_2 structures and will give a different proof of their result by using a modified Dirac operator.

"Integers of prescribed arithmetic structure in residue classes"
Andrej Vukovic, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Reverse Mathematics"
Different forms of Ramsey's Theorem will be discussed with a focus on their reverse mathematical strength. Tools from computability theory such as PA degrees will be used.

"Introduction to Valuative Trees and its connection with dynamics"
We will review where we left off last term, highlighting the main results concerning valuative trees and the role they play in Junyi Xie's proof of the MedevdevScanlon Conjecture for the affine plane.

"Loosely embeddable metric spaces"
Embedding finite metric spaces isometrically into Hilbert spaces has elicited some interest outside of pure mathematics due to applications to fields like computer vision, machine learning, the structure of networks and other such areas.
Xi Sisi Shen, Northwestern University
"Estimates for metrics of constant Chern scalar curvature"
We discuss the existence problem of constant Chern scalar curvature metrics on a compact complex manifold. We prove a priori estimates for these metrics conditional on an upper bound on the entropy, extending a recent result by ChenCheng in the K\"ahler setting.
