Recent progress on character bounds for groups of Lie type makes it feasible in many cases to find the asymptotic growth, for fixed q and n tending to infinity, of the number of n-dimensional representations of a Fuchsian group G over the field with...

We show that two generic, open, convex or concave toric domains in R4 are symplectomorphic if and only if they agree up to reflection. The proof uses barcodes in positive S1-equivariant symplectic homology, or equivalently in cylindrical contact...

In the 1940s Mahler initiated the program of determining the bass note spectrum Spec(P):={infx⎯⎯∈Λ∖0⎯⎯∣∣P(x⎯⎯)∣∣,Λ⊂ℝk a unimodular lattice} for some homogeneous form P. Understanding this spectrum is central in the geometry of numbers and offers a...

For an embedded stable curve over the real numbers we introduce a hyperplane arrangement in the tangent space of the Hilbert scheme. The connected components of its complement are labeled by embeddings of the graph of the stable curve to a compact...

Teichmuller dynamics give us a nonhomogeneous example of an action of SL_2(R) on a space H_g preserving a finite measure. This space is related to the moduli space of genus g curves. The SL_2(R) action on H_g has a complicated behavior: McMullen...

In this talk, we will explore recent developments in the study of coherent structures evolving by incompressible flows. Our focus will be on the behavior of fluid interfaces and vortex filaments. We include the dynamics of gravity Stokes interfaces...

Algebraic torsion is a means of understanding the topological complexity of certain homomorphic curves counted in some Floer theories of contact manifolds. This talk focuses on algebraic torsion and the contact invariant in embedded contact...

Topology of the Hitchin system has been studied for decades, and interesting connections were found to orbital integrals, non-abelian Hodge theory, mirror symmetry etc. I will explain that a large part of the symmetries in these geometries above are...

Joint work with Amir Mohammadi, Zhiren Wang, and Lei Yang

Let Q be an indefinite ternary quadratic form. In the 1980s Margulis proved the longstanding Oppenheim Conjecture, stating that unless Q is proportional to an integral form, the set of values...

Delta-matroids are "type B" or "type C" analogues of matroids. I will discuss how to extend a geometric construction related to matroids to delta-matroids. Using this construction, we prove the ultra log-concavity of the number of independent sets...
