"Inverse Galois Theory of Elliptic Curves"
The Inverse Galois Problem asks which finite groups appear as Galois groups of extensions of the rational numbers. The problem was first systematically investigated in 1892 by Hilbert, but the essential ideas were in the mathematical community since Galois enunciated his groundbreaking theory in the 1830s.
In the before times the Pure Math department held a regular Number Theory seminar. It would be nice to restart this seminar in the Fall term. As this is a restart of the seminar, we do not need to conform to previous models. I felt it would be easiest to have an organizational seminar next week to discuss the various options and gather feedback on the best format. Some thoughts to think about
Cliff Taubes, Harvard University
"An AMS recorded lecture by Cliff Taubes from 1995"
We will watch an AMS recorded lecture from 1995 by Cliff Taubes about gauge theory, Donaldson invariants, and SeibergWitten invariants. This talk is just under two hours long. We will start at 9:30am and possibly take a short break halfway through. The video can be found here: http://www.math.stonybrook.edu/Videos/Einstein/45519950101Taubes.html

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.
