Dynamics and Rigidity 1: Introduction to Ergodic Theory

Venkata Sai Narayana Bavisetty

Abstract: This talk will be an introduction to Ergodic Theory with the goal being to develop the necessary background to prove and understand the ergodicity of the geodesic flow on hyperbolic manifolds.

3:00 pm in 145 Altgeld Hall,Friday, September 7, 2018

Building sandcastles via optimal transportation

Derek Kielty (Illinois Math)

Abstract: You’re given a lump of sand and a blue print for a sandcastle. While there are many ways to rearrange the individual grains of sand into your castle, you ask yourself, “What is the optimal way?” The theory of optimal transportation was developed to make these kinds of questions precise. In the process it developed connections to probability, geometry, and partial differential equations. In this talk I will give an introduction to optimal transportation and discuss applications to some geometric inequalities.

A generalization of pair of pants decompositions

Jesse Huang (UIUC)

Abstract: We will talk about higher dimensional pair of pants decompositions for smooth projective hypersurfaces.

4:00 pm in 345 Altgeld Hall,Friday, September 7, 2018

An introduction to continuous logic

Erik Walsberg (UIUC)

Abstract: Continuous logic will be introduced. Basic knowledge of first order logic and ultraproducts will be assumed.
