Categorical fermionic actions and minimal modular extensions »

César Fernando Venegas Ramírez (Universidad de los Andes)
3pm 23 March 2018

The purpose of this talk is to present some results on  minimal modular extensions of braided fusion categories doing emphases in minimal modular extensions of super-Tannakian fusion categories.

Quantum G2 at roots of unity: diagrams vs. algebra »

Noah Snyder (Indiana)
3.30pm 20 March 2018

For generic $q$, Kuperberg's $G_2$ spider agrees with the category of representations of the quantum group.  What happens when $q$ is a root of unity?

The SO(3) action on the space of finite tensor categories »

Noah Snyder (Indiana)
3pm 16 March 2018

The cobordism hypothesis gives a correspondence between the framed local topological field theories with values in $\mathcal C$ and a fully dualizable objects in $\mathcal C$.

At the interface between quantum chemistry and mathematics : the surface hopping algorithms  »

Clotilde Fermanian, Université Paris Est - Créteil Val de Marne
4pm 15 March 2018

Undergraduate Colloquium: Some mathematics around the Schrodinger equation. »

Dr Lysianne Hari (Besancon, France)
5pm 13 March 2018

Lysianne will (lightly) introduce us to quantum mechanics and its fundamental Schrodinger equation, including how to solve its ridiculously fashionable non-linear incarnation.

Dual and classical generators of Artin groups of spherical type »

Thomas Gobet (Sydney)
2.30pm 13 March 2018

The aim of the talk is to explain how to express the generators of the braid group coming from the dual braid monoid (and more generally the simples, that is, the divisors of the Garside element of the dual monoid) in terms of the classical generators.

Weak subordination of multivariate Lévy processes »

Kevin Lu (MSI)
11.30am 13 March 2018

In our simulations, we find that maximum likelihood produces a better fit when a Fourier invertibility condition holds, while digital moment estimation produces a better fit when it doesn't.
