Guangbo Xu's Seminar

Fukaya-Ono-Parker perturbations and integral counts of curves
1:00pm|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

Curve counting invariants such as Gromov-Witten invariants are rational numbers in general because they are essentially certain orbifold Euler characteristics. In 1997 Fukaya-Ono proposed that by using the complex nature of the pseudoholomorphic...

Princeton University Galread [Galactic/Extragalactic Reading Group]

TBA
11:00am|Zoom and Peyton Hall, Grand Central

Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series with an emphasis on extra-galactic and large-scale structure astrophysics.

During Galread a leader/visitor presents a recent paper to the discussion group. The PDF of the paper is...

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Is your distribution in shape?
Ronitt Rubinfeld
11:15am|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

Algorithms for understanding data generated from distributions over large discrete domains are of fundamental importance.  In this talk, we consider the sample complexity of *property testing algorithms* that seek to to distinguish whether or not an...

Princeton University Gravity Initiative Fall Seminar Series

Bulk-boundary Correspondence for Vacuum Asymptotically Anti-de Sitter Spacetimes
Arick Shao
12:30pm|Princeton University, Jadwin Hall, Princeton Gravity Initiative, 4th Floor & Zoom

Abstract: The AdS/CFT conjecture in physics posits the existence of a correspondence between gravitational theories in asymptotically Anti-de Sitter (aAdS) spacetimes and field theories on their conformal boundary. In this presentation, we prove a...
