Student Differential Geometry Seminar

**Time:** Mon 1:00pm - 2:30pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Jordan Rainone and Marlon de Oliveira Gomes

A student-run seminar on Differential Geometry (broadly interpreted). Topics covered include Complex Geometry, Geometric Analysis, Metric Geometry, Gauge Theory, and General Relativity.

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

Traditional departmental mainstay. Often focuses on differential geometry, but frequently touches on differential topology, algebraic geometry, and other mathematical topics of a geometric flavor.

**Time:** Wed 1:00pm - 2:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Jacob Mazor and Myeongjae Lee

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 - 5:30pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Jason Starr

**Time:** Wed 4:00pm - 5:30pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Emily Schaal, Paul Sweeney and Jacob Mazor

This is seminar for graduate students. The seminar is an opportunity to learn a specific topic from analysis.

**Time:** Wed 1:00pm - 2:15pm**Location:** Varies. Check calendar**Organizers:** Moira Chas

These talks can be thought as a Colloquium for math majors. A variety of math and math related topics is discussed.

Seminar in Topology and Symplectic Geometry

**Time:** Thu 1:00pm - 2:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Catherine Cannizzo

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

Analysis, probability, geometric measure theory, analytic number theory etc.

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

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

Volume Conjecture Seminar

**Time:** Fri 10:00am - 11:00am**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Ying Hong Tham

In 1997, Kashaev posited the original volume conjecture, which posited that the certain asymptotics of a link invariant he constructed gave the hyperbolic volume of the link's complement. Later, Murakami and Murakami reinterpreted his link invariant in terms of the coloured Jones polynomials evaluated at roots of unity. Since then, the volume conjecture has been verified for many families of knots, but a general proof is out of sight. In this seminar we will attempt to understand the various aspects of this conjecture, and perhaps try our hand at verifying the conjecture for one or two new knots.

**Time:** Fri 11:00am - 12:00pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Sam Auyeung and Jiahao Hu

A graduate student seminar supported by the Research and Training Grant.

Professional Development Seminar

**Time:** Fri 1:00pm - 2:00pm**Location:** Math Tower P-131**Organizers:** Christian Schnell

Professional development and career advice for graduate students and postdocs.

Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar

**Time:** Fri 2:30pm - 3:30pm**Location:** Math Tower 5-127**Organizers:** Yoon-joo Kim and Nathan Chen

This is a weekly seminar for graduate students. The aim of the seminar is to learn a specific topic in algebraic geometry each semester. Only first year courses and the basics of algebraic geometry is assumed.

**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:** Xiuxiong Chen and Demetre Kazaras

This weekly seminar is for detailed discussions on classical works in Geometric Analysis, broadly interpreted.
