Descent and the Adams Spectral Sequence

Brian Shin (UIUC Math)

Abstract: This talk will be an exposition on Hess's framework for monadic descent. We will start with a discussion on monads. We will then move towards an understanding of some of the homotopical aspects of the theory. We will conclude with a discussion of the spectral sequence that naturally arises, and in particular demonstrate that the celebrated Adams and Adams-Novikov Spectral Sequences are instance of our general framework.

Dimensional concordance and logical tameness

Philipp Hieronymi   [email] (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss the relations between metric dimensions in real euclidean spaces and logical tameness of structures expanding the real field. The main result is a dichotomy: Roughly speaking, such a structure either exhibits no kind of what could reasonably considered logical tameness, or there is a striking agreement of various dimensions on closed sets definable in this structure. I will recall basic notions from both metric geometry and logic.

On Talagrand's deviation inequality for product measures

Pavlos Motakis (UIUC)

Abstract: We follow Ledoux's approach to deviation inequalities.
