It is known that a p-adic family of modular forms does not necessarily specialize into a classical modular form at weight one, unlike the modular forms of weight 2 or higher. We will explain how this obstruction to classicality leads to a "derived"...

I will describe the main ideas that go into the proof of the (unramified, global) geometric Langlands conjecture. All of this work is joint with Gaitsgory and some parts are joint with Arinkin, Beraldo, Chen, Faergeman, Lin, and Rozenblyum. I will...

I will discuss a recent proof of new cases of the Hilbert-Smith conjecture for actions by homeomorphisms of symplectic nature. In particular, it rules out faithful actions of the additive p-adic group in this setting and provides further...

In this talk, we will present a new approach for approximating large independent sets when the input graph is a one-sided expander—that is, the uniform random walk matrix of the graph has second eigenvalue bounded away from 1. Specifically, we show...

In this talk, we will consider a stabilized version of the fundamental existence problem of symplectic structures (cf. Open Problem 1 in McDuff & Salamon). Given a formal symplectic manifold, i.e. a closed manifold M

with a non-degenerate 2-form and...

A cornerstone result in geometry is the Szemerédi–Trotter theorem, which gives a sharp bound on the maximum number of incidences between m points and n lines in the real plane. A natural generalization of this is to consider point-hyperplane...

Triangulated surfaces are Riemann surfaces formed by gluing together equilateral triangles. They are also the Riemann surfaces defined over the algebraic numbers. Brooks, Makover, Mirzakhani and many others proved results about the geometric...

In this talk, I will discuss lower bounds for a certain set-multilinear restriction of algebraic branching programs. The significance of the lower bound and the model is underscored by the recent work of Bhargav, Dwivedi, and Saxena (2023), which...

Cayley graphs provide interesting bridges between graph theory, additive combinatorics and group theory. Fixing an ambient finite group, random Cayley graphs are constructed by choosing a generating set at random. These graphs reflect interesting...

To any unital, associative ring R one may associate a family of invariants known as its algebraic K-groups. Although they are essentially constructed out of simple linear algebra data over the ring, they see an extraordinary range of information...
