Can (deformation classes of local) gapped Hamiltonians be moved about from one manifold to another? »

Michael Freedman (Microsoft Station Q)
3pm 19 January 2018

I’ll explain how a generalization of Kirby’s torus trick from "Stable homeomorphisms and the annulus conjecture", Annals of Mathematics (1969) can be used to relocate a certain phases of matter from one manifold to another --- restrictions on both the phase and the manifolds may apply.

Mimetic discretizations: new opportunities for pre- and post-processing  »

Alexander Pletzer, New Zealand eScience Infrastructure (NeSI) and National Institute for Water and Atmospheric research (NIWA)
1.30pm 11 December 2017

I will discuss the impact of mimetic methods on visualization, pre- and post-processing tools with particular emphasis on developing suitable interpolation and regridding techniques.

Groupoids and Algebroids in Geometric Analysis »

Paulo Carrillo Rouse, Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse (IMT)
4pm 7 December 2017

Sparse dominations and sharp weighted estimates for singular integral operators »

Dr Dorothee Frey (TU Delft, Netherlands)
1.30pm 5 December 2017

We shall discuss the concept of sparse dominations of singular integral operators, in particular for those operators whose kernel do not satisfy any regularity estimate.

A few questions in the metric analysis of Banach spaces »

Professor Gilles Lancien, Laboratoire de Mathématiques de Besançon
4pm 30 November 2017

In the last fifteen years, the question of embedding metric spaces into “nice” Banach spaces has gathered researchers coming from very diverse origins.
