Solutions of Jang’s Equation Inside Black Holes

CMSA GENERAL RELATIVITY SEMINAR

February 14, 2020      10:30 am
Speaker: Yuewen Chen - Harvard University, CMSA

Jang’s equation is a degenerate elliptic differential equation which plays an important role in the positive mass theorem. In this talk, we describe a high order WENO (Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory)...

T-equivariant disc potentials of toric manifolds

DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY

February 11, 2020      4:15 pm
Speaker: Yoosik Kim - Brandeis University

In this talk, we discuss how to derive the equivariant SYZ mirror of toric manifolds by counting holomorphic discs. In the case of (semi-)Fano toric manifolds, those mirrors recover Givental's...

Brill-Noether Theory of Prym Varieties

HARVARD-MIT ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY

February 11, 2020      3:00 pm
Speaker: Yoav Len - Georgia Tech

The talk will revolve around combinatorial aspects Prym varieties, a class of Abelian varieties that occurs in the presence of double covers. Pryms have deep connections with torsion points of...
