Bianca Viray, University of Washington
"Isolated points on curves"
Caleb Suan, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Pinching Estimates and Eigenvalues of Curvature Operators"
In this talk, we will go through various results from the paper “Curvature Operators: Pinching Estimates and Geometric Examples” by Bourguignon and Karcher, which relate bounds on sectional curvatures of manifolds to eigenvalues of curvature operators.

Leandro Lichtenfelz, University of Pennsylvania
"Smooth Fibrations of the 3Sphere by Simple Closed Curves"
Ragini Singhal, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Six dimensional nearly Kähler manifolds of Cohomogeneity one"
We will discuss a paper by PodestaSpiro where the authors consider sixdimensional strict nearly Kähler manifolds acted on by a compact, cohomogeneity one automorphism group G. We will see how they classify the compact manifolds of this class up to Gdiffeomorphisms.
Shay Fuchs, University of Toronto Mississauga
"A Fun, Engaging, and Effective Approach to Teaching Calculus"
Siqi He, Simons Center, Stony Brook
"The compactness problem for the HitchinSimpson equations"
The HitchinSimpson equations defined over a Kähler manifold are first order, nonlinear equations for a pair of a connection on a Hermitian vector bundle and a 1form with values in the endomorphism bundle. We will describe the behavior of solutions to the Hitchin–Simpson equations with norms of these 1forms unbounded. We will also discuss the deformation problem of Taubes' Z2 harmonic 1form.
Andrew Granville, Université de Montréal
"The Frobenius postage stamp problem and boundary turbulence"
Christopher Lang, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"The Many Faces of Monopoles"
In this talk, we introduce the four ways of looking at monopoles: solutions of the Bogomolny equations, Nahm data, spectral curves, and rational maps. We then discuss the relationships between these equivalent descriptions and some of the advantages and disadvantages of using them.
Boyu Zhang, Princeton University

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.
