Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory RTG Seminar: Vanishing theorems for completed cohomology

Seminar | August 27 | 3-5 p.m. | 748 Evans Hall

 David Hansen, University of Notre Dame

 Department of Mathematics

Pre-talk: Completed cohomology, as defined by Calegari and Emerton, is a natural candidate for general spaces of p-adic automorphic forms. I'll give a motivated introduction to completed cohomology and the p-adic Langlands program in the setting of modular curves.

Main talk: I'll discuss some new vanishing theorems for completed cohomology, building on previous work of Scholze and Shen. The...   More >

Differential Geometry Seminar: Classification of gravitational instantons

Seminar | August 27 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Gao Chen, Institute for Advanced Study

 Department of Mathematics

A gravitational instanton is a noncompact complete hyperkähler 4-manifold with faster than quadratic curvature decay. In this talk, I will discuss the classification of gravitational instantons. This is a joint work with Xiuxiong Chen.

Analysis/PDE Seminar: Balanced geometric Weyl quantization with applications to QFT on curved spacetimes

Seminar | August 27 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Jan Dereziński, University of Warsaw

 Department of Mathematics

First I will describe a new pseudodifferential calculus for (pseudo-)Riemannian spaces, which in our opinion (my, D.Siemssen's and A.Latosiński's) is the most appropriate way to study operators on such a manifold. I will briefly describe its applications to computations of the asymptotics the heat kernel and Green's operator on Riemannian manifolds. Then I will discuss analogous applications to...   More >
