Seminars for Pure Mathematics


Oct 9
Ettore Aldrovandi (FSU)
Homotopy theoretic aspects of central extensions
Topology and Geometry Seminar
Time: 3:35
Location: 201
The classification of central extensions of a group $G$ by a

(necessarily abelian) group $A$ is very well understood from both the

Algebra and Geometry viewpoints. Indeed, one of the mos... More

Alex White (FSU)
Central Strips of Sibling Leaves in Laminations of the Unit Disk
Topology and Geometry Seminar
Time: 3:35
Location: 201
Quadratic laminations of the unit disk were introduced by Thurston as a vehicle for understanding the Julia sets of quadratic polynomials and the parameter space of quadratic polynomials. The Central ... More

Tyler Foster (Florida State University)
The work of Katz, Rabinoff, and Zureick-Brown on rational point counts in algebraic curves
Algebra
Time: 3:35
Location: LOV104
I plan to talk about relatively recent work of E. Katz, J. Rabinoff, and D. Zureick-Brown. These three authors established a uniform bound on the number of rational points in smooth projective algebra... More

Analysis & PDE
Time: 2:30-3:30
Location: 104 LOV
 
Sep 17
Alexander Reznikov
Sparce domination of singular integrals
Analysis & PDE
Time: 2:30-3:30
Location: 104 LOV
We will make the first step towards understanding the recent article on Matrix Weighted Estimates for singular integral operator.





We will begin by presenting the classical sparc... More

Grayson Jorgenson (FSU)
Equivariant intersection theory and the Segre zeta function
Algebra
Time: 3:35
Location: LOV104
We will discuss the idea of the Segre zeta function which in the case of closed subschemes of projective spaces explains how Segre classes behave under the operation of taking cones. Following this, w... More

Sam Ballas (FSU)
Geometric Structures via Flags
Topology and Geometry Seminar
Time: 3:35
Location: 201
Roughly speaking a geometric structure is a recipe for gluing together pieces of a geometric space using geometry preserving maps to build a manifold with interesting topology. Some classical examples... More

Paolo Aluffi (Florida State University)
Chern classes of embeddable schemes
Algebra seminar
Time: 3:35
Location: 104 LOV
We prove a formula computing the Chern-Schwartz-MacPherson (CSM) class of an arbitrary subscheme of a nonsingular variety in terms of the Segre class of an associated scheme. This formula generalizes ... More
 
Sep 4
Ben Prather (FSU)
The Symmetry of the Octonions
Topology and Geometry Seminar
Time: 3:35p
Location: 201
The octonions are noted for there exceptional symmetry. This can be expressed by examining the size of automorphism group relative to other algebras of a similar size. In particular, the automorphism ... More
 
Sep 3
Analysis&PDE (moved to next week)
Analysis and PDE
Time: 2:30
No location for this even specified.
We will choose a topic to discuss first.
