The algebra and geometry of non-reduced curves »

Anand Deopurkar (ANU)
2pm 2 February 2018

In this talk, I will introduce the simplest kinds of non-reduced curves, and explain what they tell us about the geometry of smooth curves.

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.

Groupoids and Algebroids in Geometric Analysis »

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

I will show with many examples how Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids appear and how they are used in geometric analysis, particularly in index theory.
