Seminar | March 22 | 9:10-10 a.m. | 238 Sutardja Dai Hall
Luca Spolaor, MIT and Princeton University
The uniqueness of blow-up and regularity of multiplicity-one minimal surfaces at isolated singularities has been successfully investigated by Allard-Almgren [Ann. of Math. '81], in the integrable case, and by L. Simon [Ann. of Math. '83], in its full generality. In this talk I will present a simple and completely variational approach to this problem, achieved by proving a new logarithmic... More >

This talk will explore the cost of implicit leverage associated with an S&P 500 Index futures contract and derive an implied financing rate. While this implicit financing rate was often attractive relative to market rates on explicit financings, the relationship between the implicit and explicit financing rates was volatile and varied considerably based on legal and economic regimes. Among other... More >

Yet, extensive scholarship in social science and public health has made it clear that race has been and continues to be a foundational... More >
