Week starting Monday 15 August 2022
Given a fractal set E on the plane and a set F of directions, can we find one direction L in F such that the orthogonal projection of E along L is large? We will survey some classical and modern projection theorems and discuss their relation to problems in Fourier analysis. We will also discuss some joint work with Shmerkin, and joint work with Gan, Guth, Guo, Harris, and Maldague.
Hong Wang is currently an Assistant Professor at UCLA. She obtained her PhD in 2019 from MIT under the supervision of Larry Guth. Her work improved our understanding of incidence geometry and geometric measure theory, which in turn have deep implications in harmonic analysis and partial differential equations. She had done ground-breaking work with her collaborators which settled the local smoothing conjecture for wave equations in 2+1 dimensions, set the best current record for the Fourier restriction conjecture in 3 dimensions, and proved several best current results towards the Falconer distance conjecture. She was awarded the Maryam Mirzakhani New Frontiers Prize in 2022 for her stellar achievements.
I am a Lecturer of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in the School of Computing at the Australian National University (ANU).
I hold a leadership role in large multi-institutional partnerships encompassing world-leading Australian and US universities, supercomputing facilities, and IT corporations. I am the leader of one of the Pawsey Centre for Extreme-scale Computing (PaCER) projects, a partner investigator for one of the Australasian Leadership Computing Grant, and the lead of GPU development for the GAMESS Exascale Computing Project.
In 2020 and 2021, using my algorithms on the fastest supercomputer on the planet, I broke the world record for the largest computational-driven chemical modellings of material structure, setting new standards in High-Performance Computing, and enabling the design of ground-breaking materials, catalysts, and drugs.

Isaac Klapper is interested mathematical applications in the physical and biological sciences, particularly those with connections to fluid dynamics. While he has worked with mathematical problems arising in solar magnetohydrodynamics, especially some related to dynamo activity, his current focus is on study of mixed physical and ecological issues in microbial communities such as biofilms and microbial mats.
