Hyperfiniteness and descriptive combinatorics: ideas and proofs

Clinton Conley (Carnegie Mellon)

Abstract: We discuss some ideas and proofs behind the results surveyed in the first part of this talk on Tuesday.

What are matrix factorizations?

Jesse Huang (Illinois Math)

Abstract: A matrix factorization is, roughly speaking, what looks like AB=fId where f is a polynomial and every square matrix in the equation takes value in the polynomial ring. This notion was originally introduced in the study of homological algebra on (singular) complete intersections and then generalized and made into a younger sibling of the derived category of coherent sheaves. The state-of-the-art consolidates the study of things like hypersurface singularities and (A to B) mirror symmetry for non-CYs. I will try to showcase some basics and survey through a handful of well-known results in this talk.

Mid Semester Meeting

Abstract: The IGL Mid-Semester meeting will be taking place next Wednesday evening (03/13) from 5-6:30 pm in Altgeld Hall. Due to the large number of IGL projects, this mid-semester meeting will involve three parallel sessions, with each group presenting in one of the following three rooms as indicated below. Furthermore, the presentations will allowed to be a bit longer: this semester each groups presentation will last up to 7 minutes, plus a minute for questions to occur. We expect each group to last roughly 10 minutes.
