The Spectrum of Signed Laplacians, or: Feuds, Coalitions, and Love Triangles

Lee DeVille (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois)

Abstract: We will present results on the dynamical stability of the Laplacians of graphs that have negatively-weighted edges, and motivate these results using models of opinion formation on social networks.

Regular isotropic fibrations

Rui Loja Fernandes (Illinois)

Abstract: By an isotropic fibration of a symplectic manifold we mean a fibration whose fibers are isotropic submanifolds and for which the symplectic orthogonal to the fibers is an integrable distribution. These are "non-commutative" generalizations of lagrangian fibrations: e.g, the same way an integrable system gives rise to a lagrangian fibration, a non-commutative integrable system gives rise to an isotropic fibration. In this talk I will discuss regular isotropic fibrations with compact, connected fibers, and their classification. The classification is analogous to Duistermaat's classification of regular lagrangian fibrations, but a new phenomenon appears: a symplectic gerbe.
