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.

Combinatorics of level 0 representations »

Arun Ram (U. of Melbourne)
3.30pm 28 November 2017

Recent work of Kato and Kato-Naito-Sagaki has provided an improved understanding of the combinatorics of integrable level 0 representations of the affine Lie algebra.

The heat flow for harmonic maps and applications »

Min-Chun Hong, University of Queensland
4pm 23 November 2017

In 1964, Eells and Sampson asked whether a given smooth map can be deformed to a harmonic map in its homotopy class.

Rational points on curves »

Brendan Creutz (U. of Canterbury)
3.30pm 21 November 2017

I will discuss what is known and conjectured regarding the problem of determining whether a curve defined over the rational numbers has any rational points.

Coarse embeddability of the Hilbert space into Banach spaces »

Professor Gilles Lancien (Universite de Franche-Comte, Besancon, France)
1.30pm 21 November 2017

A coarse embedding between metric spaces is, intuitively speaking, a map which preserves, in a weak sense, the geometry at large distances.

Describing Blaschke products by their critical points »

Dr Oleg Ivrii, Caltech University
2pm 20 November 2017

In this talk, I will discuss a problem which originates in complex analysis but is really a problem in non-linear elliptic PDE.

Undergraduate Colloquium: what is functional analysis about? »

Associate Professor Florence Lancien, Universite de Franche-Comte, Besancon, France
1.30pm 15 November 2017

In order to adapt them to infinite dimensional vector spaces, a whole new theory needed to be developed.

Knots and quivers, HOMFLY and DT »

Paul Wedrich (MSI)
3.30pm 14 November 2017

Physicists have long been arguing that gauge theories at large rank should be related to topological string theories.
