Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 — 9:30 AM EDT

Speaker 1: Patrick Naylor, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Handles and Kirby diagrams"

Ever wanted to represent a manifold with a diagram? Via several examples, this talk will explain how low dimensional manifolds and the relationships between them can be described by Kirby diagrams. We will review the necessary Morse theory to describe handle decompositions, and then use this to draw many pictures. 

Speaker 2: Jason d'Eon, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 — 12:00 to 12:00 PM EDT

Jeffrey Samuelson, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"An Agrarian Interlude"

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 — 1:30 PM EDT

Anton Mosunov, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

"Absolute Bounds on the Number of Solutions of Certain Equations of Thue and Thue-Mahler Type"

Let $F(X, Y)$ be an irreducible polynomial with integer coefficients of degree at least three. In 1909 it was proved by Thue that the Diophantine equation

$$F(x, y) = m,$$
