Dieudonné crystals associated to formal groups

Ningchuan Zhang (Illinois Math)

Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce Dieudonné crystals associated to commutative formal group schemes. The focus of this talk will be on the construction of the contravariant Dieudonné crystal functor and explicit computation of some examples. I'll also mention its relation with extensions and deformations of formal groups if time allows.

My Grad School Journey

Marissa Loving (Illinois Math)

Abstract: In this talk, I will tell the story of my journey through grad school. I will attempt to be as blunt as possible about the ups and downs I have experienced and touch on some of the barriers I have encountered (both internally and externally). If you have ever felt like you don’t belong or worried that you have made others feel that way, this talk is for you.
