Additive decompositions of Linear Operators

Alexi Gorman (UIUC Math)

Abstract: There are many operator algebras important to the study of analysis, geometry and various fields that are unwieldy as algebras, and understanding their action on the space can be cumbersome. The study of additive decompositions makes use of both the additive and multiplicative structures on a space of linear operators to understand the action of the transformation on a vector as the sum of the images of a few "well-behaved" operators acting on that vector. The utility and applicability of the additive decomposition can vary based on what kind of "well-behaved" operators we can decompose each map into. In particular, this talk will examine examples of endomorphism rings over vector spaces of varying cardinality, and some interesting sub-algebras of their endomorphisms. We will consider decompositions of operators into various sums that include the sum of an invertible operator and a projection, invertible and nilpotent, and the sum of invertible operator, projection, and nilpotent transformation.

On "Regularity lemma for distal structures" by A. Chernikov and S. Starchenko: Epilogue

Erik Walsberg (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Motivated by problems in discrete geometry, Alon, Pach, Pinchasi, Radoičić, and Sharir (2005) established a strong version of the bipartite Ramsey theorem for semialgebraic graphs: any such graph or its complement contains a complete bipartite subgraph with parts of linear size. Eventually, this result led to a generalization due to Chernikov and Starchenko (2015), who extended it to graphs definable in distal structures. In this series of talks, we are planning to give an overview of the Chernikov–Starchenko result. This is the final talk of this series.
