Topology and Geometry
Hyperbolic 3-manifolds and malnormal maximal abelian groups.
    - Aamir Rasheed , FSU Math
Time: 3.35PM Room: 201
Abstract/Desc: Any compact irreducible 3-manifold admits a decomposition (JSJ decomposition) into pieces which are either Seifert fibered or Atoroidal. Waldhausen studied and classified manifolds where the JSJ decomposition give only Seifert fibered pieces. We on the other hand study manifolds whose JSJ decomposition produces only non-Seifert pieces. We show that the absence of Seifert pieces is related to the malnormality of maximal abelian groups. Note that our theorem in conjunction with the Thurston's Geometrization theorem gives a sufficient condition for a closed 3-manifold to only have hyperbolic JSJ pieces.

Algebra seminar
Stable maps and Kontsevich's formula III
    - Grayson Jorgenson, FSU
Time: 3:35pm Room: 104 Love
Abstract/Desc: In the complex projective plane, how many degree d rational curves pass through 3d - 1 given points in general position? The answers N_d to this question for d = 1,2,3,4 were known classically, but only in recent times were the answers for d > 4 determined. In this expository talk we will discuss an approach due to Kontsevich that uses moduli spaces of stable maps to produce a recursive formula for all of the N_d.
