Remi Jaoui, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Coherence"
We discuss sections 2.2 and 2.3 of the BakkerBrunebarbeTsimerman paper.
MC 5479
Richard Gottesman, Queen's University
"VectorValued Modular Forms on $\Gamma_0(2)$"
Mohammad Mahmoud, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"The Isomorphism Problem for Pregeometries"
We continue our proof for showing that the isomorphism problem for rice pregeometries with Condition B is $\Pi^0_3$hard.
MC 5413
Ross Willard, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Dualizing structures that are necessarily of infinite signature, part 3: the gory details"
In this lecture I will finish Pitkethly’s proof that her schizophrenic pair is in fact a dualizing pair. If time remains, I’ll sketch the proof that the term operations of the algebra are not determined by any finitesignature alter ego.
MC 5403
[Talk rescheduled from February 6, 2019]
SangGyun Youn, Queen's University
"Sobolev embedding properties on compact matrix quantum groups"
Abolfazl Alam, Shahid Beheshti University
"Model Companion for Bounded Theories and some Related Complexity Questions"
Alex Wright, University of Michigan
"Dynamics, geometry, and the moduli space of Riemann surfaces"
Rahim Moosa, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Etale descent"
Following the BakkerBrunebarbeTsimerman paper, we show that quotients by etale equivalence relations exist for definable analytic spaces.
MC 5479
Sanaz Pooya, Stockholm University
"On the BaumConnes assembly map for certain semidirect products"
**This seminar has been cancelled and is rescheduled for February 27, 2019**
Mohammad Mahmoud, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"The Isomorphism Problem for Pregeometries"
We continue our proof for showing that the isomorphism problem for rice pregeometries with Condition B is $\Pi^0_3$hard.
MC 5413
Pat Naylor, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Diagrammatic Methods in Topology"
A recent tool for understanding 4manifolds is something called a “trisection.” These have the interesting advantage of changing problems about 4manifolds to problems of combinatorics on surfaces. This talk will be an (accessible) tourist’s guide to some background and similar ideas from low(er) dimensional topology: Heegaard splittings and diagrams. Time permitting, we’ll also introduce a trisection and discuss some recent developments.
**This talk was originally scheduled for February 12; it will now take place on February 14, 2019**
Nick Manor, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Do the Borromean rings exist?"
Alessandro Malusà, University of Saskatchewan
"Complex AJ conjecture"
Rahim Moosa, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Etale descent"
Following the BakkerBrunebarbeTsimerman paper, we show that quotients by etale equivalence relations exist for definable analytic spaces.
MC 5479
Erick Knight University of Toronto
“The ζ3Pell Equation” Abstract
Zack Cramer, University of Waterloo
“Matrix Algebras with a Certain Compression Property”
Levon Haykazyan, University of Waterloo
"Pseudofinite sets and dimension, Part 8"
I'll talk about unimodularity. It was introduced by Hrushovski in early 90s as a generalisation of local finiteness. Unimodularity has recently reappeared in the pseudofinite setting as a tool to develop intersection theory.

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.
