Bi-Lipschitz reflections of the plane

Terry Harris (UIUC Math)

Abstract: I will talk about a problem concerning the differentiability of a class of bi-Lipschitz reflections of the plane, which is still open.

Dp-minimal expansions of $(\mathbb{Q},<,+)$

Erik Walsberg (Illinois Math)

Abstract: I will use P. Simon's result to relate dp-minimal expansions of $(\mathbb{Q},<,+)$ to o-minimal expansions of $(\mathbb{R},<,+)$, I will also describe a nice application of the Pettis lemma to o-minimality.

Optimizing mesh quality

Sarah Mousley (UIUC)

Abstract: I will talk about a project in computational geometry I worked on during a summer internship at Sandia National Lab. Our work builds on that of Mullen et al., who introduced a new energy function for meshes (triangulations) and an algorithm for finding low energy meshes. The energy is a measure of the mesh’s quality for usage in Discrete Exterior Calculus (DEC), a method for numerically solving PDEs. In DEC, the PDE domain is triangulated and this mesh is used to obtain discrete approximations of the continuous operators in the PDE. While the motivation for this work is to obtain better solutions to PDEs, do not be turned off. I didn't solve a single PDE all summer. This is a geometry talk.
