Seminar Groups

Algebra and Combinatorics

The Algebra and Combinatorics Seminar features research talks about recent results in algebra, combinatorics, and related areas. Particular subjects of interest are the structure and representation theory of Lie algebras, quantum groups, algebraic groups, and vertex algebras, as well as the algebraic, enumerative, geometric, and topological aspects of combinatorics.

Applied Mathematics Graduate Student (AMGSS)

The Applied Math Grad Student Seminar (AMGSS) is an opportunity for graduate students to give presentations in a low-pressure environment. These talks are typically progress reports on thesis research, and are often practice talks for conferences or oral examinations. Also included are reports and discussion from workshops, summer schools and internship experiences. Students get a chance to practice presenting (and listening to) talks by their peers and department faculty. Students wishing to attend the presentations are welcome to contact the organizers to be added to the seminar email list.

Computational and Applied Mathematics

The Computational and Applied Mathematics seminar focuses on general computational methods arising in applied mathematics. We invite an interdisciplinary audience and speakers, including faculty, researchers, and graduate students from mathematics and other applied sciences, to attend and present research talks that spotlight the practical implementation of mathematical concepts. Technical, tutorial, and expository presentations are all encouraged

Pure Math Graduate Student (PuGS)

Pure Math Graduate Student Seminar is a platform for graduate students in pure mathematics to share their research with fellow graduate students. It is intended to provide a comfortable environment, free of faculty presence, in which graduate students can practice communicating their research or any interesting topics in pure mathematics.

Symbolic Computation

The discipline of symbolic computation includes computer algebra, hybrid symbolic-numeric computation, mathematical knowledge representation and the algebraic aspects of formal methods in computer science, such as rule-based theorem proving. Its goal is to “do mathematics by computer” (Stephen Wolfram), with, we would add, exact or validated answers. Trademarked symbolic computation algorithms are used for computation of a Gröbner basis, lattice basis reduction, polynomial factorization, closed-form summation and integration, and solution in Tarski’s theory of real geometry. Commercial symbolic computation packages (Wolfram’s Mathematica, Maple by Maplesoft, MuPAD inside Matlab) and academic software (Stein’s Sage platform and many smaller programs) today have millions of users.

The symbolic computation seminar features research talks related to the design and implementation of algorithms in symbolic computation, including such areas as exact linear algebra, sparse interpolation and signal processing, algorithms for problems from algebraic and real geometry and optimization, polynomial root finding and solution of polynomial systems, algebraic solution of difference and differential equations, validation of numerical results, fast certification of outputs from cloud servers, and applications of algebraic geometry in the sciences.
