Generic measure-preserving transformations are whirly
(50 minute talk)

Dakota Ihli (UIUC Math)

Abstract: We show that the action of a generic measure-preserving transformation on a standard probability space is whirly. This will be the final part in our series of seminar talks discussing the paper "Spatial and non-spatial actions of Polish groups" by Glasner and Weiss.

Intro to Gromov-Witten invariants

Nachiketa Adhikari (Illinois Math)

Abstract: Gromov-Witten invariants (often) count the number of curves (= Riemann surfaces) of a fixed genus in a projective variety (= nice complex manifold). I will introduce these invariants and compute a few examples.
