Representation Theory Student Seminar

**Time:** Sun 4:00pm - 6:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 4-125 (Common Room)**Organizers:** Jin-Cheng Guu

We aim to classify all finite dimensional representations of compact Lie groups and look at explicit examples (classical compact groups).

Algebraic Geometry Learning Seminar

**Time:** Mon 4:15pm - 5:15pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Alexandra Viktorova

In this seminar we will be reading Beauville's Complex Algebraic Surfaces and parts of chapters 3 and 4 from Hartshorne's Algebraic Geometry. We are going to discuss the books and do some examples and exercises.

Student Differential Geometry Seminar

**Time:** Mon 5:30pm - 6:30pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Lisandra Hernandez and Marlon de Oliveira Gomes

The goal of the Student Differential Geometry Seminar is to discuss current topics and techniques in Differential geometry aimed at graduate students and postdocs. This semester will be dedicated to discussing manifolds of Positive Scalar Curvature.

Grad/Postdoc Professional Development Seminar

**Time:** Tue 1:00pm - 2:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Christian Schnell and Christopher Bishop

This is a seminar for graduate students and postdocs. We talk about career-related skills (such as applying for jobs, writing grant proposals, giving talks), and we have many guest speakers (from the tech sector, finance, teaching colleges, government jobs, etc.), to find out about job options for people with a PhD in mathematics.

**Time:** Tue 4:00pm - 5:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Xiuxiong Chen and Marcus Khuri

The Directed Reading Program in Math

**Time:** Tue 4:00pm - 5:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Timothy Alland

The Directed Reading Program (DRP) in Mathematics at Stony Brook is an opportunity for undergraduates to explore advanced mathematical topics through individually-focused pairings with a graduate student mentor.

First and Second Year Student Seminar

**Time:** Tue 5:30pm - 6:30pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Tim Ryan and Demetre Kazaras

The aim of the seminar is to provide first and second year Ph.D. students with the tools that they may need for starting research while at Stony Brook.

**Time:** Wed 1:00pm - 2:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Lisa Marquand and Jiahao Hu

This seminar is an opportunity for any graduate student to practice giving a good talk on any topic they find particularly interesting. We will have an array of speakers from all years of graduate study, and topics will cover a broad range of Mathematics.

**Time:** Wed 2:30pm - 3:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Jonguk Yang

This seminar is designed for mini-courses of three or four lectures each on various themes of dynamics.

**Time:** Wed 4:00pm - 5:00pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Mark De Cataldo

**Time:** Wed 4:00pm - 6:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Jack Burkart and Silvia Ghinassi

We are a learning seminar for topics that touch real and complex analysis, probability, and dynamical systems. The topic rotates on a semester by semester basis. This semester, we will be studying classical Loewner theory Schramm-Loewner evolution.

**Time:** Wed 7:00pm - 9:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Moira Chas

The math club talks are aimed to all people with mathematical interest. Most talks assume only basic ideas of mathematics.

Seminar in Topology and Symplectic Geometry

**Time:** Thu 1:00pm - 3:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Guangbo Xu

**Time:** Thu 2:30pm - 3:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Christopher Bishop, Bob Hough, Raanan Schul

Topics are usually analysis in a very broad sense, in particular topics may include analytic number theory, probability, geometric function theory and measure theory.

**Time:** Thu 4:00pm - 6:00pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Leon Takhtajan, Bob Hough, Ljudmila Kamenova

The colloquium is intended for a general mathematical audience, including graduate students and researchers from all fields of mathematics.

**Time:** Fri 10:00am - 11:00am**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Ben Wu and Nathan Chen

This semester we will be studying Higgs bundles on compact Kähler manifolds with the aim of understanding Simpson’s non-abelian Hodge theorem.

Geometric Group Theory Seminar

**Time:** Fri 11:00am - 12:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Tobias Shin

The seminar will focus on topics in geometric group theory, including low dimensional topology and geometry, mapping class groups and Teichmüller theory.

Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar

**Time:** Fri 2:30pm - 3:30pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Yoonjoo Kim and Frederik Benirschke

The aim of this seminar is to learn Hodge theory, from the basics to more elaborate methods. We are going to follow the book "Period mappings and period domains" by Carlson, Muller-Stach and Peters.

**Time:** Fri 2:30pm - 3:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Jonguk Yang

This is a research seminar in dynamical systems and related aspects of analysis, geometry, and probability.

Geometric Analysis Learning Seminar

**Time:** Fri 4:00pm - 6:00pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Demetre Kazaras

This seminar focuses on Geometric Analysis in the large, with an emphasis on long-form (2 hour) presentations by graduate students on classical subjects and papers. Non-graduate students are also welcome to attend and speak -- contemporary research topics are appropriate as well. Areas include, but are not limited to: complex geometry, Riemannian geometry and geometric PDEs.
