Loop Spaces and Chiral Differential Operators

Josh Wen   [email] (UIUC)

Abstract: The Witten genus is an invariant of a manifold $M$ that is morally gotten by doing index theory on $LM$. It would be lovely to turn ‘morally’ into ‘actually’, and hence the interest in geometric constructions of the Witten genus. One possible approach is via the ring of chiral differential operators (CDOs) on $M$, introduced for complex $M$ by Malikov, Schechtman, and Vaintrob. This is a sheaf of vertex algebras on $M$ whose character yields the Witten genus. Of course, any old bundle with the right numerical data can do this—the interesting part is to relate the construction to loop space. I’ll introduce the bare minimum about vertex algebras to discuss the obstruction theory to gluing together a global sheaf of CDOs, wherein loopy things like local lifts of Wess-Zumino forms and ‘curvature' 3-forms appear.

Fractal solutions of dispersive PDE

Burak Erdoğan   [email] (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: We will discuss the fractal solutions of linear and nonlinear dispersive PDE such as the Schrodinger's equation and Korteweg de Vries equation.

A brief introduction to Banach lattices and multinormed spaces

Timur Oikberg

Abstract: We start by briefly introducing Banach lattices, and describing their properties. We then segue to multinormed spaces, which were introduced to obtain an abstract description of Banach lattices (cf. concrete vs. abstract operator spaces). Properties of multinormed spaces and their representations as subspaces of Banach lattices will be discussed. PS We will also briefly discuss organizational issues
