Yu-Wei Fan (Berkeley),Shifting numbers in triangulated categories
 
Abstract: One can consider endofunctors of triangulated categories as categorical dynamical systems, and study their long term behaviors under large iterations. There are (at least)...

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Thresholds for Random Subspaces, aka, LDPC Codes Achieve List-Decoding Capacity
Mary Wootters
11:15am|Remote Access - see Zoom link below

What combinatorial properties are likely to be satisfied by a random subspace over a finite field? For example, is it likely that not too many points lie in any Hamming ball of fixed radius? What about any combinatorial rectangle of fixed side...

Members’ Seminar

Support Varieties for Modular Representations
2:00pm|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access - see Zoom link below

We present an overview of elementary methods to study extensions of modular representations of various types of "groups". We shall begin by discussing actions of an elementary abelian $p$-group, $E = (Z/p)^r$, on finite dimensional vector spaces...
