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

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....

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

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 >

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 >

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 >
