CMSA Special Seminar: How will we do Mathematics in 2030?


February 24, 2020      3:00 pm
Speaker: Michael Douglas - Simons Center for Geometry and Physics

We make the case that over the coming decade, computer assisted reasoning will become far more widely used in the mathematical sciences. This includes interactive and automatic theorem verification, symbolic...

Stable pairs with a twist


February 25, 2020      3:00 pm
Speaker: Giovanni Inchiostro - Brown University

It is well known that, for pointed nodal curves, considering flat and proper families of pairs (X,D) leads to a proper moduli space. Still, while the notion of stable pairs...

Constructing multipartite Bell inequalities from stabilizers


February 25, 2020      3:30 pm
Speaker: You Zhou - Harvard University

In this work, we propose a systematical framework to construct Bell inequalities from stabilizers which are maximally violated by general stabilizer states. We show that the constructed Bell inequalities can...

CMSA Colloquium: The Cubical Route to Understanding Groups


February 26, 2020      4:30 pm
Speaker: Daniel Wise - McGill University

Cube complexes have come to play an increasingly central role within geometric group theory, as their connection to right-angled Artin groups provides a powerful combinatorial bridge between geometry and algebra....

Structure theorems for actions of diffeomorphism groups


February 27, 2020      4:30 pm
Speaker: Kathrynn Mann - Cornell University

The groups of homeomorphisms or diffeomorphisms of a manifold have many striking parallels with finite dimensional Lie groups. In this talk, I'll describe some of these, and explain new work,...
