Algebra and Geometry Seminar: Quantum symmetries of algebras related to quivers

Speaker: Ryan Kinser from U of Iowa The term “quantum symmetries” in this talk refers to Hopf actions of quantum groups, and related Hopf algebras, on other algebras. While quantum symmetries of field extensions, polynomial rings, and their deformation have been explored for several decades, only recently have quantum symmetries of algebras related to quivers … Continue reading Algebra and Geometry Seminar: Quantum symmetries of algebras related to quivers

Discrete Seminar: Can you hear the shape of a tree?

Speaker: Joel Jeffries, Iowa State UniversityAbstract:Spectral graph theory gives a way to study graph structures by considering the eigenvalues of a matrix derived from a graph. Many questions ask something like “Given a set of eigenvalues associated with a graph, what properties can be recovered about the graph?” We ask if the property “is a … Continue reading Discrete Seminar: Can you hear the shape of a tree?

Geometric Analysis Seminar: Noncompact self-shrinkers for mean curvature flow with arbitrary genus

Speaker: Reto Buzano from the Università di Torino Abstract: In his lecture notes on mean curvature flow, Ilmanen conjectured the existence of noncompact self-shrinkers with arbitrary genus. Here, we employ min-max techniques to give a rigorous existence proof for these surfaces. Conjecturally, the self-shrinkers that we obtain have precisely one (asymptotically conical) end. We confirm … Continue reading Geometric Analysis Seminar: Noncompact self-shrinkers for mean curvature flow with arbitrary genus

Algebra and Geometry Seminar: Twisting of function algebras on algebraic groups

Speaker: Shlomo Gelaki (ISU) Abstract: Fix a complex linear algebraic group  GG. Let  O ( G )O(G) denote the function algebra of  GG (it is a commutative Hopf algebra), and let  R e p ( G )Rep(G) denote the representation category of  GG (it is a symmetric tensor category). In my talk I will first explain why (ordinary) fiber … Continue reading Algebra and Geometry Seminar: Twisting of function algebras on algebraic groups
