Research careers in federally funded organizations

Matthew Yancey (Institute for Defense Analysis)

Abstract: Informal round-table discussion about mathematical careers in federally funded research organizations. Dr. Yancey received his PhD from the U of Illinois in 2013, and we are pleased to welcome him back for this event, running 1:30-3:00pm (just drop in when you can). Bring your résumé if you wish. This event is most relevant to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

Multilinear phenomena in analysis and related areas

Eyvindur Ari Palsson (Williams College)

Abstract: Many concepts in mathematics, from boundary value problems in partial differential equations and mathematical physics to finite point configurations in geometric combinatorics, are fundamentally tied to various operator bounds. This frequently leads to the estimation of linear and multilinear integral operators with techniques from harmonic analysis, often combined with geometric and combinatorial principles. In this talk I shall describe two examples from my research program united by the common theme of multilinearity. I will begin by discussing finite point configuration questions that can be thought of as continuous analogs of the Erdos distinct distance problem. Multilinear analogs of the linear generalized Radon transforms arise naturally here and are of independent interest. I will then discuss singular integral operators motivated by Calderon's commutators and present estimates for an operator in between the bilinear Hilbert transform and the trilinear one.
