Christine Ruey Shan Lee, Plamenevskaya’s invariant from the stable Khovanov homology of twisted torus knots

December 3, 2019 | 1:20 pm - 2:30 pm EST

A transverse link is a link in the 3-sphere that is everywhere transverse to the standard contact structure. Transverse links are considered up to transverse isotopy, with classical invariants such as the self-linking number and regular isotopy class. One of…

SIAM Seminar: ML Explainability vs. Adversarial ML

December 5, 2019 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

How do we know that we can trust our machine learning models?  How do we detect when an adversary is exploiting our machine learning solutions? How does the explainability of machine learning models help the customers of such models versus helping…

Honors Research Presentation

December 5, 2019 | 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EST

Grant Barkley   Title: Coxeter Groups and the Lattice of Total Orders   Abstract: A Coxeter group is a group generated by elements of order 2, called reflections, along with certain relations between the elements. The group of permutations on…

Thomas McConville, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Chapoton triangles from multidimensional Catalan objects

December 9, 2019 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Chapoton triangles are polynomials in two variables defined by Coxeter-Catalan objects. These polynomials are related by some remarkable identities that only depend on the rank of the associated (finite) Coxeter system. The multidimensional Catalan numbers enumerate the number of standard Young tableaux of a…

Alexander Shapiro, Univ. of California, Berkeley, Modular functor from higher Teichmüller theory

January 7 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Quantized higher Teichmüller theory, as described by Fock and Goncharov, assigns an algebra and its representation to a surface and a Lie group. This assignment is equivariant with respect to the action of the mapping class group of the surface,…

Maria-Veronica Ciocanel, Ohio State University, Stochastic and continuum dynamics in cellular transport

January 10 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

The cellular cytoskeleton is essential in proper cell function as well as in organism development. These filaments represent the roads along which most protein transport occurs inside cells. I will discuss examples where questions about filament-motor protein interactions require the…

Corey Jones, Ohio State University, Fusion categories and their applications in mathematical physics

January 10 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Fusion categories are rich mathematical structures generalizing the representation categories of finite groups. They arise in many areas of mathematics and physics. Most strikingly, they have emerged as models for particle-like excitations with exotic exchange statistics in low dimensional quantum…

Peter McGrath, Univ. of Pennsylvania, Existence and Uniqueness Results for Minimal Surfaces

January 13 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

A hypersurface in a Riemannian manifold is called minimal if its mean curvature vanishes identically.  Minimal surfaces have fascinated mathematicians since the time of Euler, and tremendous progress has been made in understanding the structure of the space of embedded minimal surfaces…
