An Introduction to the 2017 California Dyslexia Guidelines: CRLP Study Session

Workshop | December 9 | 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. | 1203 Berkeley Way West

 California Reading & Literature Project

Join the California Reading & Literature Project (CRLP) at the Graduate School of Education for a study session to learn about the new 2017 California Dyslexia Guidelines. The goal of this half-day workshop is to inform administrators, special education teachers, and general education teachers about what these new guidelines entail, how they will be used to identify students with dyslexia, and...   More >

Combinatorics Reading Seminar: "Triangular ice combinatorics"

Seminar | December 9 | 11:10 a.m.-12:10 p.m. | 748 Evans Hall | Canceled

 Philippe Di Francesco, IPHT and UIUC

 Department of Mathematics

Alternating Sign Matrices (ASM) are at the confluent of many interesting combinatorial/algebraic problems: Laurent phenomenon for the octahedron equation, configurations of the Square Ice (Six Vertex model), Descending Plane Partitions (DPP), etc. Here we consider the Triangular Lattice version of the Ice model with suitable boundary conditions leading to an integrable 20 Vertex model....   More >

 American Cultures, Academic Innovation Studio, Wiki Education Foundation Educators, Library

Please join the AC Center, AIS, the University Library, and the Wiki Education Foundation Educators as we discuss how to build Wikipedia assignments into your courses and discover some of the new tools, which support and enhance teaching with Wikipedia.

Trade Lunch: "Employment and Wage Impacts of US Protectionism"

Combinatorics Seminar: Finishing times in random sorting networks and staircase shape Young tableaux

Seminar | December 9 | 12:10-1 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Dan Romik, UC Davis

 Department of Mathematics

The oriented swap process is a model for a random sorting network, in which N particles labeled 1,...,N arranged on the discrete lattice [1,N] start out in increasing order and then perform successive adjacent swaps at random times until they reach the reverse configuration N,...,1. I will discuss recent joint work with Elia Bisi, Fabio Cunden and Shane Gibbons in which we discovered that the...   More >

ERL is an opportunity for PhD students to present work in progress and receive valuable feedback from faculty and peers.

Differential Geometry Seminar: Noncollapsed degeneration of Einstein 4-manifolds

Seminar | December 9 | 3-4 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Tristan Ozuch-Meersseman, ENS

 Department of Mathematics

We study unit-volume Einstein 4-manifolds with bounded diameter and their possible degenerations. These degenerations were understood in the 80's by Anderson and Bando-Kasue-Nakajima in a Gromov-Hausdorff sense. We first obtain a finer convergence in weighted Hölder spaces and use it to prove that any smooth Einstein 4-manifold close to a singular one in a mere Gromov-Hausdorff sense is the...   More >

Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory RTG Seminar: Tame derivatives and the Eisenstein ideal

Seminar | December 9 | 3:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Preston Wake, IAS

 Department of Mathematics

As was made famous by Mazur, the mod-5 Galois representation associated to the elliptic curve $X_0(11)$ is reducible. Less famously, but also noted by Mazur, the mod-25 Galois representation is reducible. We’ll talk about this kind of extra reducibility phenomenon more generally, for cuspforms of even weight k and prime level. We'll observe that the characters appearing in the reducible...   More >
