Analysis Student Seminar   


Time:              Tue 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:     Owen Mireles Briones

During Spring 2021, the Analysis Student Seminar will learn about the concentration of measure. The main reference is "The Concentration of Measure Phenomenon" by Michel Ledoux.


Geometry/Topology Seminar


Time:              Tue 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:   Claude LeBrun, Xiuxiong Chen and Marcus Khuri

A traditional central focus of the seminar is global Riemannian geometry. However, many other differential-geometric topics, such as symplectic topology, contact geometry, several complex variables, complex algebraic geometry, and General Relativity have all been the focus of many previous talks. The lectures are intended for a broad audience of mathematicians, and we encourage our speakers to begin their talks at an easily accessible, colloquium-style level.


Algebraic Geometry Seminar


Time:              Wed 3:00pm - 4:15pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:    Robert Lazarsfeld and Olivier Martin

Weekly seminar for the algebraic geometry group.




Time:              Thu 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:    Robert Lazarsfeld, Bob Hough, Dzmitry Dudko

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


Graduate Student Seminar


Time:              Fri 11:00am - 12:00pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:    Willie Rush Lim and Karina Cho

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.


Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar


Time:               Fri 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:    Mads Villadsen and Lisa Marquand

The Student Algebraic Geometry seminar this semester will be on the topic of Positivity, following Robert Lazarsfeld's books. The first part of the seminar will be on the foundational theory of positivity for line bundles, and should be accessible to those new to AG as well. Later in the seminar we might discuss positivity for vector bundles of higher rank, or multiplier ideal sheaves.


Geometric Analysis Learning Seminar


Time:               Thur 7:30pm - 10:10pm
Location:        Online
Organizers:    Xiuxiong Chen and Jingrui Cheng

This weekly seminar will report on well known papers on geometric analysis.
