This talk defines Dirichlet arrangements, a generalization of graphic hyperplane arrangements arising from electrical networks and order polytopes of finite posets. After establishing some basic properties we characterize Dirichlet arrangements whose Orlik-Solomon algebras are Koszul and show that the underlying matroids satisfy the half-plane property. We also discuss the role of Dirichlet... More >

After the initial flash and bang of a supernova, radio emission can continue for decades as the shockwave interacts with the circumstellar material (CSM) shed by the progenitor star before the explosion. These observations can, in turn, provide key insights into both the explosion mechanism and pre-supernova evolution of the progenitor system, as well as probe the transition from supernova to...

Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory RTG Seminar: Bounding Points on Curves using $p$-Adic Hodge Theory
Seminar | November 19 | 3:10-5 p.m. | 784 Evans Hall
Brian Lawrence, University of Chicago
Methods of $p$-adic analysis provide the most powerful tools to bound the set of rational points on a curve. The earliest work in this direction was the method of Chabauty; in many cases this is already enough to enumerate (with proof) the rational points. Much more recently, work of Kim on the unipotent fundamental group has led to computational breakthroughs by Balakrishnan, Dogra et al. The... More >

I will explain how the results of Bourgain, Burq and the speaker '13 can be used to obtain control and observability by rough functions and sets on 2-tori. We show that for the time dependent Schrödinger equation, any set of positive measure can be used for observability and controllability.
For non-empty open sets this follows from the results of Haraux '89 and Jaffard '90, while for... More >
