Triangular Prism equations and categorification

MATHEMATICAL PICTURE LANGUAGE

September 22, 2020      10:00 am
Speaker: Yunxiang Ren - Harvard University

Fusion categories have been extensively studied by Mathematicians and have proved to have many important applications in quantum physics. A fusion category is completely determined by a set of F-symbols...

K-stability of cubic fourfolds

HARVARD-MIT ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY

September 22, 2020      3:00 pm
Speaker: Yuchen Liu - Princeton University

Recently there has been tremendous progress on constructing (projective) moduli spaces of Fano varieties using K-stability. In this talk, we will show that the K-moduli space of cubic fourfolds coincide...

Multiplicative functions in short intervals revisited

NUMBER THEORY

September 23, 2020      10:00 am
Speaker: Kaisa Matomäki - University of Turku, Finland

A few years ago Maksym Radziwill and I showed that the average of a multiplicative function in almost all very short intervals $[x, x+h]$ is close to its average on...

Mathematics from doodling

OPEN NEIGHBORHOOD

September 23, 2020      4:30 pm
Speaker: Ravi Vakil - Stanford

We'll start with a type of doodle most of you have done since you were little, and start wondering about it. We'll be led through a number of questions I've...

Algebraic Braids and Transcendental Retractions

HARVARD-MIT ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY

September 29, 2020      3:00 pm
Speaker: Minh-Tam Trinh - MIT

If a complex, integral, projective curve C has only planar singularities, then its Jacobian admits a natural compactification with interesting topology. Work of Oblomkov, Shende, and others suggests the existence...
