Brand Training Workshop 2: Building websites with branded components

Workshop | January 11 | 9-11:30 a.m. |  UC Berkeley Campus

 Public Affairs

Attend this workshop to see how the Berkeley brand platform can be applied to your website. See examples of each web template option: Dreamweaver, WordPress, and OpenBerkeley. Get hands-on experience with the Dreamweaver template in order to gain a deeper understanding of the modular branded components and how to use them to build a page. Work on a sample page or get help with your website...   More >

String-Math Seminar: The Non-Abelian Localization Theorem and the Verlinde Formula for Higgs Bundles

Seminar | January 11 | 2-3 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Daniel Halpern-Leistner, Columbia University

 Department of Mathematics

The Verlinde formula is a celebrated explicit computation of the dimension of the space of sections of certain positive line bundles over the moduli space of semistable vector bundles over an algebraic curve. I will describe a recent generalization of this formula in which the moduli of vector bundles is replaced by the moduli of semistable Higgs bundles, a moduli space of great interest in...   More >

Topology Seminar: Groups acting on the circle

Seminar | January 11 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall | Note change in location

 Kathryn Mann, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

Given a group G and a manifold M, can one describe all the actions of G on M? This is a basic and natural question from geometric topology, but also a very difficult one – even in the case where M is the circle, and G is a familiar, finitely generated group like the fundamental group of a surface.

In this talk, I'll introduce you to the theory of groups acting on the circle, building on the...   More >
