Talk 1. Matthew Beckett  9:30am
Pure Mathematics Department, University of Waterloo
“Monopoles and S1invariant instantons”
Abstract
Talk 1. Mohamed El Alami  1:00pm
Pure Mathematics Department, University of Waterloo
“Introduction to schemes, part 2”
The theory of sheaves that was presented in the first talk will be used to introduce ringed spaces, locally ringed spaces and their morphisms. The structure sheaf on Spec R will be revisited to reveal some of its properties that will motivate the definition of schemes. The last part of the talk will cover some examples and properties of schemes.

“The Jacobson Density Theorem”
Cameron Williams, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
“Thin is In! Zero Sets and no Regrets”
Michael Baker, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
“Representations of sl(3;C), again”
Continuing from last time, we describe the possible weights of a representation of sl(3;C), give a complete classification of such representations, and in the process, work through a few illuminating examples.
Talk 1. Jon Herman, Pure Mathematics Department, University of Waterloo
“Noether’s theorem in Lagrangian mechanics”
Yitang (Tom) Zhang, University of New Hampshire
"Small gaps between primes and primes in arithmetic progressions"
A major ingredient of the proof is a stronger version of the BombieriVinogradov theorem which asserts that the primes are well distributed in arithmetic progressions to large moduli. This result is of independent interest and it relies on the Riemann Hypothesis for varieties over finite fields.

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 granted 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 coordinated within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
