"Recurrence in Algebraic Dynamics"
Let $\varphi:X\dashrightarrow X$ is a rational mapping of an algebraic variety $X$ defined over $\C$. The orbit of a point $x\in X$ is the sequence $\{x,\varphi(x),\varphi^2(x),\ldots\}$. Our basic question is: how often does this orbit intersect a given closed set $C$? Thus we are interested in the return set
\[ E := \{n\geq 0 : \varphi^n(x)\in C\}. \]

"Generatingfunctionology: basics and approximation"
A generating function is a device for studying a sequence by trapping it in the coefficients of a power series. I'll give a brief crash course on "generatingfunctionology", and show you how to write down the generating function of Fibonacci numbers. This gives, for instance, an exact formula for the nth Fibonacci number. We don’t usually care whether the series converges, and work in the setting of “formal” power series.

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 centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
