Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Explicit SoS Lower Bounds from High Dimensional Expanders
Max Hopkins
11:00am|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

Where are the hard problems? In the absence of a proof of P ≠ NP, researchers have spent years proving unconditional lower bounds for constrained models of computation. In time, a distinct theme arose: random problems (in particular random...

Symplectic Geometry Seminar

Constraints on Contact Type Hypersurfaces in Symplectic 4-Manifolds
Thomas Mark
12:30pm|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

In joint work with Bulent Tosun, it was shown that Heegaard Floer theory provides an obstruction for a contact 3-manifold to embed as a contact type hypersurface in standard symplectic 4-space. As one consequence, no Brieskorn homology sphere admits...

Emmy Noether Lectures

Real local Langlands as geometric Langlands on the twistor-P^1
Peter Scholze
2:00pm|Wolfensohn Hall and Remote Access

Sponsored by the Minerva Research Foundation. 

In 2014, Fargues realized that one can formulate the local Langlands correspondence over p-adic fields as a geometric Langlands correspondence on the Fargues-Fontaine curve. This raises the question of a...

Joint IAS/Princeton Arithmetic Geometry Seminar

Pro-etale Cohomology of Rigid-Analytic Spaces
Johannes Anschütz
3:30pm|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

In this talk I want to explain some surprising features of the pro-etale cohomology of rigid-analytic varieties, and how they can be explained by a six functor formalism with values in solid quasi-coherent sheaves on the Fargues-Fontaine curve. 

This...

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II

Locally Consistent Decomposition of Strings with Applications to Edit Distance Sketching
Michal Koucký
10:30am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Edit distance is a similarity measure for strings that counts how many characters have to be deleted, inserted or substituted in one string to get another one. It has many applications from comparing DNA sequences to text processing. We are still in...

Mathematical Conversations

Propagation of Randomness Under Nonlinear Wave Equations
6:00pm|Birch Garden, Simons Hall

In recent years, there has been much work on nonlinear wave equations with random initial data. Most of this work has focused on the behavior of such nonlinear waves on small scales. In this talk, I will pose a problem concerning the behavior on...
