Alexey Popov, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
“On the spatial structure of semigroups of partial isometries.”
Spyros Alexakis, University of Toronto
“The black hole uniqueness problem, old and new.”
Omar Leon Sanchez, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"NIP Theories IV"
We will see some examples of NIP theories and prove the BaldwinSaxl theorem. Time permitting we will talk about invariant types.Speakers:
Ian Payne  Pure Mathematics
Georg Osang  Combinatorics & Optimization
"The Payne Conjecture"
Xiaowei Wang, Rutgers University Newark
“Greatest Ricci curvature lower bounds and conic K ̈ahlerEinstein metrics”
Matt Valeriote, McMaster University
"Characterizing congruence npermutability"
Rescheduled seminar from January 31, 2013.
Elcim Elgun, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
“The Eberlein Compactification of the Heisenberg Type Group Z×T×T”
Xiaomei Zhao, Central China University and University of Waterloo
“Vinogradovtype estimates”
In this talk, we will begin with the classical Waring problem to outline the circle method, which includes a simple application of Vinogradov’s mean value theorem for minor arc esimates. We will also introduce more general Vinogradovtype estimates and their analogues in function fields.
Pantelis Eleftheriou, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
“NIP Theories V”
We discuss invariant, definable, and finitely satisfiable types in theories with NIP.
Owen Baker, McMaster University
“Hyperbolic Group Boundaries and CannonThurston Maps”
Tyrone Ghaswala, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Morse than Meets the Eye"
This is the first session of a new learning seminar in geometry and topology. The plan is to work through Milnor's Morse Theory. This first talk will be covering some background in topology to set us up to start attacking the book. Join us!
Ian Payne, Department of Pure Mathematics University of Waterloo
“Maltsev digraphs have a majority polymorphism”
Alexandr Kazda showed in 2010 that Maltsev digraphs have a majority polymorphism. Coincidently, the paper in which the proof appeared has the same title as this talk. I will present the proof.
Tristan Bice, York University
“The Projection Calculus”
We derive a projection analog of the usual continuous functional calculus and show how it can be used to simplify and strengthen a number of classical results about projections in C*algebras, particularly those of real rank zero.
Alexander Kolpakov, Vanderbilt University
“Growth rates of Coxeter groups, tessellations of hyperbolic space and algebraic integers”
Alexander Odesski, Brock University
“Integrable Lagrangians and modular forms”
Pantelis Eleftheriou, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"NIP VI"
We present products and Morley sequences of invariant types, and give an application to denable groups.
Jason Bell, Department of Pure Mathematics University of Waterloo
"Gromov’s Theorem: Part I”
Gromov’s theorem states that a finitely generated group of polynomially bounded growth has a nilpotent subgroup of finite index. I hope to give a complete proof of Gromov’s theorem over a few lectures. The first lecture is intended to be accessible to a beginning graduate student and will give the basic background needed along with an overview of the main steps of the proof.
Tyrone Ghaswala, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
“There’s Morse Where That Came From”
We will continue covering the background required to get stuck in to Milnor’s Morse Theory. We will finish talking about CWcomplexes and then cover smooth manifolds, tangent spaces and smooth functions between manifolds. With a bit of luck we will get through some of the basic definitions of Morse Theory. Come along if you dare!
Wentang Kuo, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
