Free Banach Lattices

Vladimir Troitsky (University of Alberta)

Abstract: A free Banach lattice is the largest Banach lattice generated by a set of given cardinality. Similarly, a Banach lattice $X$ is free over a Banach space $E$ if $X$ is the largest Banach lattice which contains $E$ as a subspace and is generated by it. Equivalently, every bounded linear operator from $E$ to an arbitrary Banach lattice $Y$ extends to a lattice homomorphism from $X$ to $Y$ of the same norm. In the talk, we will discuss several methods of generating free vector and Banach lattices.

Indroduction to Non Commutative Probability

Kesav Krishnan (UIUC Math)

Abstract: In this talk I will introduce Non Commutative Probability Theory, and highlight some of its uses in classical Probability, such as the study of random matrices. In particular, motivation of Wigner's semi-circle law as the non commutative analog of the Central Limit Theorem.

Indroduction to Non Commutative Probability Part 2

Kesav Krishnan (UIUC Math)

Abstract: I will continue the talk from last friday, on the Introduction to Non Commutative Probability. In this talk, I will focus on limit laws, in particular the non commutative CLT and the universality of the semi-circle law.

Asymptotic dimension and coarse embeddings in the quantum setting

Alejandro Chavez-Dominguez (University of Oklahoma)

Abstract: We generalize the notions of asymptotic dimension and coarse embeddings, from metric spaces to quantum metric spaces in the sense of Kuperberg and Weaver. We show that the quantum asymptotic dimension behaves well with respect to several natural operations, and in particular with respect to quantum coarse embeddings. Moreover, in analogy with the classical case, we prove that a quantum metric space that equi-coarsely contains a sequence of quantum expanders must have infinite asymptotic dimension. This is done by proving a vertex-isoperimetric inequality for quantum expanders, based upon a previously known edge-isoperimetric one. Joint work with Andrew Swift.

An Introduction to $L^2$ Cohomology

Gayana Jayasinghe (UIUC Math)

Abstract: We'll see how we can construct quasi isometry invariants and some conformal invariants with function spaces and operators on manifolds (and some more general spaces), and how we can use analysis to study geometric structures

Around the Folds

Kirsi Peltonen (Aalto University, Finland)

Abstract: We will discuss about various ways to use origami and folding as a multidisciplinary tool in research and education. Some ongoing projects funded by Academy of Finland and Ministry of Education and Culture with theoretical and practical goals are described. The slides of the talk as a pdf-file can be obtained by clicking on the name of the speaker above.

Novikov conjecture for groups generated by coarsely embeddable groups under extensions and admissible limits

Zhizhang Xie (Texas A&M)

Abstract: I will talk about some recent work on the strong Novikov conjecture for groups generated by coarsely embeddable groups under extensions and admissible limits. Here we say a group $G$ is an admissible limit of a family of groups $\{ G_i \}$ if the following is satisfied: for any finite subset $F$ of $G$, there exists $n$ such that the preimage of $F$ in $G_i$ injects into $G$ for all $i > n$. This talk is based on my joint work with Jintao Deng and Guoliang Yu.

Eigenvalues on Forms

Xiaolong Han (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Recently there has been a growing interest in eigenvalues on forms. It is much more complicated than eigenvalues on functions but can detect finer geometry. It has applications in detecting length of axes of John ellipsoid of convex body, relating Monopole Floer homology to hyperbolic geometry, and commutator length in hyperbolic geometry. In this talk we will show some basic theory and definitions for eigenvalues on forms, and then provide some intuition for the geometry and applications.

Complex dynamics and linearization

Stathis Chrontsios (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Complex dynamics is the study of iteration of either rational functions from the Riemann sphere into itself or entire functions. Fatou and Julia sets play a main role in that study. Their definitions will be given, as well as a few examples and properties. Last but not least, connections between complex dynamics, number theory and linearization will be discussed.

Positive Commutators, Propagation of Singularities, and trapping

Hadrian Quan   [email] (UIUC Math)

Abstract: In this talk I’ll describe the method of positive commutators, which is a flexible technique (=works on a manifold) for proving estimates about solutions of linear PDEs. Positive commutator estimates are useful for proving results about hyperbolic equations like the wave equation, or more generally any equations which involve a “flow”, by relating properties of solutions to the trajectories of an associated classical dynamical system. In particular they can give quantitative meaning to mysterious statements like “solutions of the wave equation propagate along light-cones.”
