"Finitary approximation properties of groups"
Motivated by the study of equations over groups, I will explain various finitary approximation properties of groups. Related to this, old questions of Ulam will reappear and we will motivate and discuss the notion of stability of solutions and almost solutions to algebraic equations.

"Assessing students' proofs online"
In this seminar I will describe how we, at the University of Edinburgh, have tried to help students learn proof through online assessment. This is ongoing work, driven by a practical need and constrained by current technology which cannot automatically assess students' free form proof. The seminar will discuss the nature of elementary proof more generally.

"Deformations of Asymptotically Conical G2Instantons"
Seda Albayrak, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Sparse Automatic Sets"
I will present results in the theory of sparse automatic sets in three different contexts: the theory of algebraic power series, unlikely intersections, and the theory of representations in additive bases.

"Actions of Homeo and Diffeo groups on manifolds"
In this talk, I discuss the general question of how to obstruct and construct group actions on manifolds. I will focus on large groups like Homeo(M) and Diff(M) about how they can act on another manifold N. The main result is an orbit classification theorem, which fully classifies possible orbits. I will also talk about some low dimensional applications and open questions. This is a joint work with Kathryn Mann.

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.
