J-holomorphic cylinders between ellipsoids

Ely Kerman (UIUC)

Abstract: The primary tool for detecting obstructions to symplectic embeddings are regular J-holomorphic curves in symplectic cobordisms. The more the better. In this talk, I will describe an existence theorem for such curves in dimension 4 and, time permitting, an application. This is based on joint work in progress with Richard Hind.

Problem-solving, question-asking and knowledge-finding

Bruce Reznick (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois)

Abstract: Three of the most important activities that researchers perform are listed in the title. I will talk about practical techniques for improving your skills in these areas, using specific examples of mathematics from my own work and the work of my graduate students. My intention that most members of the audience will see at least a few objects which resonate with their own mathematical interests.

Quantised Calculus in One Dimension and Applications

Ed McDanoald (NSW)

Abstract: This talk will give some introduction for certain topics in noncommutative geometry with special emphasis on the 1-dimensional torus. An organizational meeting will be held a week later.
