Dynamics and Rigidity 2: Ergodicity of Geodesic Flow

Venkata Sai Narayana Bavisetty

Abstract: I will first present a proof of the ergodicity of the geodesic flow for compact hyperbolic surfaces and then will generalize these ideas to prove ergodicity of the geodesic flow for compact hyperbolic n-manifolds.

On "Closed subgroups generated by generic measure automorphisms" by S. Solecki, Part 2

Dakota Ihli (UIUC Math)

Abstract: We will sketch the proof of the main result in this paper.

Writing a Research Statement: Panel

Sara Clifton, Tom Nevins, Colleen Robichaux, Anush Tserunyan

Abstract: Join us to hear advice on writing an effective research statement from members of the department. Panelists have been on both sides of the postdoc job application and decision process and have had successful internal and external (NSF) grant applications.

Differential Equations from Hodge Theory

Lutian Zhao   [email] (UIUC Math)

Abstract: The classical theory of elliptic integrals is the milestone in the history of various fields in math: algebraic geometry, differential equations, number theory,.. etc. In this talk, I'll use this as the motivating example for the theory of periods. I'll talk about how we get some equations for the periods and interpret these equations in terms of Hodge theory. As an interesting application, I'll calculate the number of rational curves on quintic threefold by these differential equations. Only complex analysis is assumed.
