Special Seminar on Hilbert's 13th Problem II

Topology of resolvent problems
Benson Farb
2:00pm | Simonyi Hall 101
In this talk I will describe a topological approach to some problems about algebraic functions due to Klein and Hilbert. As a sample application of these methods, I will...

Analysis - Mathematical Physics

Cardy embedding of random planar maps
Nina Holden
3:30pm | Simonyi Hall 101
A random planar map is a canonical model for a discrete random surface which is studied in probability theory, combinatorics, mathematical physics, and geometry. Liouville...

Analysis - Mathematical Physics

The nonlinear stability of the Schwarzschild metric without symmetry
Mihalis Dafermos
5:00pm | Simonyi Hall 101
I will discuss an upcoming result proving the full finite-codimension non-linear asymptotic stability of the Schwarzschild family as solutions to the Einstein vacuum equations...

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Graph Sparsification via Short Cycle Decomposition
Sushant Sachdeva
11:00am | Simonyi Hall 101
We develop a framework for graph sparsification and sketching, based on a new tool, short cycle decomposition -- a decomposition of an unweighted graph into an edge-disjoint...

Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Galread [Galactic/Extragalactic Reading Group]

Hannah Ubler
11:00am | Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Grand Central
Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series in Peyton Hall with an emphasis on extra-galactic and large-scale structure astrophysics. During Galread a...
