Thursday, Nov 12, 2020, Part 1 , Access Passcode: 21r.x%z% Thursday, Nov 12, 2020, Part 2 , Access Passcode: !3aWyn1x Due to a technical glitch (images were fuzzy for some participants) I had to restart the meeting after about 10 minutes. Thus the lecture was recorded into two pieces (one short, one long). Topics covered: BiLipschitz involutions, Seppi's estimate, minimal surfaces with total finite curvature, renormalized area.

Tuesday, Dec 1, 2020 , Access Passcode: qYr!st4a Guest lectures by David Mumford and Rafe Mazzeo. Due to a mistake on my part, the first 5 minutes of Mumford's talk was not recorded (sorry). David lost his connection about 20 minutes into this recording, so Rafe began his remarks, and David finished his presentation after Rafe finished his. Despite a few technical problems, this was a very informative and useful session.

Thanks to everyone who attended the class this semester. It was a great experience for me (though a bit exhausting). I hope it was worth the time you devoted to it. Please give me your feedback on what worked and what didn't, and let me know of any research that develops out of this..
