Introduction by Erik Ulman
Gunter Reich, Louis Devos, Roger Lucas,
Acclaimed as one of the best opera films ever made, this adaptation of Schoenbergs 1930s opus represented a labor of love for Straub-Huillet, taking over fifteen years to fund. A camera, a landscape (the Roman Alba Fucense amphitheater), and direct sound recording is all they need to portray the sweeping tale of... More >

We consider the problem of placing $k$ queens on an $n \times n$ chessboard so that the number of unattacked squared is as large as possible. We focus on the domain where $k$ is small relative to $n$. We are able to solve this problem by relating it to various related problems in additive combinatorics.
Seminar | February 27 | 1-2 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall
Michael Yeh, UC Berkeley
If $M$ is a compact manifold, a generic smooth function $f:M\to R$ can tell us about the topology of $M$. Classically, one obtains a CW decomposition of $M$ (up to homotopy equivalence) and can then use cellular homology. I will focus on a newer approach which involves constructing a chain complex by counting the flow lines of the gradient of $f$. The resulting homology turns out to be... More >

In the early 90's, Bartnik defined a localization (to finite regions) of the mass of complete asymptotically flat metrics on 3-manifolds with nonnegative scalar curvature. The Bartnik mass has a number of favorable properties. A deeper understanding of the mass requires the resolution of several conjectures posed by Bartnik, leading to interesting global problems in geometric PDE. We will discuss... More >

One challenge of understanding how the brain works is the complexity of neural circuits.

Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar: The Geometry of Macdonald Polynomials (or The Combinatorics of Hilbert Schemes)
Seminar | February 27 | 4-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall
Jeremy Meza, UC Berkeley
In 1988, Macdonald introduced his eponymous \(q,t\)-symmetric functions, which he conjectured were polynomials with non-negative integer coefficients. It was not until 2001 when Haiman proved this purely combinatorial conjecture using the underlying geometry subtly lurking in the background. In this talk I will outline Haiman's proof. Along the way, I will review symmetric function theory,... More >

The synapse between hair cells and auditory nerve fibers provides precise temporal information about acoustic events, such as transients in complex stimuli and the phase of sound waveforms at frequencies up to the kHz range. To accomplish these tasks, the synapse produces a high rate of spontaneous and stimulus-driven discharge in auditory-nerve fibers, with irregular spike trains and little or... More >

A lot of my intuition for mathematics comes from drawing pictures of the problem I want to solve. As a topologist, this means trying to come up with clean visual representations of various topological spaces. A good drawing for a space should ideally be

Traditionally, proteins analysis has been conducted under the purified dilute aqueous conditions in most cases. However, it is now being recognized that structure and functions of natural proteins in live systems are rather different from those under such pure conditions. Therefore, it is ideal that proteins can be studied in vivo in more-details for deep understanding of these biomolecules. For... More >

We examine the network of bilateral trading relations between insurers and dealers in the over-the-counter corporate bond market. Using comprehensive regulatory data we find that many insurers use only one dealer while the largest insurers have a network of up to eighty dealers. To understand the heterogeneity in network size we build a model of decentralized trade in which insurers... More >

We'll discuss a condition to guarantee that a tower of congruence $p$-covers of an arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifold have the RFRS property (Residually Finite Rational Solvable), and hence virtually fiber. We'll spend some time discussing the Bass-Serre tree which is the basis for this criterion.

We study eigenvalues of 3D Schrödinger operators modified by a stochastic term $V_N$, oscillating at typical frequency $N \gg 1$. Such operators are a rough model for the propagation of waves inside a disordered medium. Using a perturbation argument, we show that eigenvalues converge almost surely as $N \rightarrow \infty$. The rate of convergence is investigated: we identify two regimes,... More >
