Topology in Dimension 3, 3.5 and 4: Some actions of R. Thompson’s groups, and knot invariants

Seminar | June 25 | 9:30-10:30 a.m. | Calvin Laboratory (Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing), Auditorium | Note change in location

 Vaughan Jones, Vanderbilt

 Department of Mathematics

An attempt to use Thompson’s groups as local scale transformations on quantum spin chains led to the discovery of some geometrically defined unitary group representations. In particular for the same quantum spin chains that gave rise to the Jones polynomial via the braid groups, an alternative history would allow it to arise from the Thompson group.

Expression of ethanol sensitive glycine receptors in several brain regions

Seminar | June 25 | 2-3:30 p.m. | 125 Li Ka Shing Center

 Luis Aguayo, University of Concepcion, Chile

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Synaptic glycine receptors (GlyR) are expressed primarily in spinal cord and brain stem neurons. GlyRs are sensitive to general anesthetics, neurosteroids, Zn2+ and ethanol. Recently, GlyRs were also found in other supratentorial regions, but their properties are largely unknown. Mesolimbic regions, such as ventral tegmental area (VTA) and nucleus accumbens (nAc), were also found to express GlyRs...   More >
