Berkeley-Tokyo Summer School "Geometry, Representation Theory, and Mathematical Physics": Integrable systems and quantum geometry II
Seminar | August 28 | 10-11:30 a.m. | 375 LeConte Hall
Andrey Smirnov, UC Berkeley
In my talk I will overview new classes of integrable systems associated with Nakajima quiver varieties. I will explain the geometric construction of quantum Rmatrices, commuting families of Hamiltonians and corresponding Bethe equations. I will discuss relations of these systems with quantum cohomology and quantum K-theory of Nakajima varieties.
Seminar | August 28 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 420 Soda Hall
Shivaram Venkataraman, UC Berkeley
In this talk I will present my research on systems that make it easier to develop new machine learning applications and scale them while achieving high performance.
Seminar | August 28 | 1-2 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall
Alexander Appleton, UC Berkeley
Non-collapsed Ricci solitons play an important role in Ricci flow as they arise as blow up limits of singularities. The classification of three dimensional Ricci solitons has largely been carried out by the work of Hamilton, Ivey, Perelman and Brendle. In four dimensions, however, only a handful of solitons are known and a complete classification remains a distant goal.

Masahito Yamazaki, IPMU, University of Tokyo
I will describe my recent work with Kevin Costello and Edward Witten, on explaining integrable models from a four-dimensional gauge theory.

Probabilistic Operator Algebra Seminar: Twisted canonical anti-commutation relations and twisted independence
Seminar | August 28 | 3-5 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall | Canceled
Naofumi Muraki, Iwate Prefectural University
We will construct a one-parameter deformation of tensor product ( = twisted product) for non-commutative probability spaces, and show the existence of the associated universal calculation rule ( = twisted independence ) for mixed moments of non-commutative random variables. The construction was inspired from the twisted canonical anti-commutation relations of W. Pusz .
Seminar | August 28 | 3:30-5 p.m. | 3108 Etcheverry Hall
Bin Yu, Professor, UC Berkeley Departments of Statistics and EECS
In this talk, I'd like to discuss the intertwining importance and connections of three principles of data science in the title in data-driven decisions. Making prediction as its central task and embracing computation as its core, machine learning has enabled wide-ranging data-driven successes. Prediction is a useful way to check with reality. Good prediction implicitly assumes stability between... More >

The campus-recruiting season begins right after the start of the fall semester! Are you actively looking for jobs/internships this semester but still have questions such as where to find open positions, what qualities employers are looking for, what resources available for resume, interview and networking preparation, and how to increase your chance of getting interviews? This workshop is aimed... More >
