Members’ Colloquium

Fluid equations: regularity and Kolmogorov’s turbulence theory
2:00pm|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

The regularity theory for the Navier-Stokes equation will be reviewed. Motivations from Kolmogorov’s phenomenological theory of turbulence will be discussed. Rigorous mathematical results are obtained to confirm some of the phenomenologies.

Joint IAS/Princeton University Symplectic Geometry Seminar

Morse-Bott theory on singular analytic spaces and applications to the topology of symplectic four-manifolds
4:00pm|Simonyi Hall 101

We describe two extensions, called the virtual Morse-Bott index and circle-equivariant virtual Morse-Bott index, of the classical Morse-Bott index of a Morse-Bott function on a smooth manifold to the setting of (a) suitably defined analytic...
