Catch-All Mathematical Colloquium

2021年10月21日 (木) 9:00 11:00
Zoom

The colloquium will be held once a month. It will be held online for the time being. Each event consists of a one-hour talk on mathematics followed by a one-hour diversity panel discussion session.

In the mathematics part, we will hear an exciting overview talk for a general audience. October speaker is Megumi Harada, Professor of McMaster University. In the discussion session, we will hear about the speaker's personal journey as a mathematician. You can take inspiration from them and exchange ideas with other participants in a small group. After the sessions are over, there will be a tea time where participants can chat freely.

You can join Part I only or both parts of the colloquium. Please register before Oct 18th, 5 pm. Click here to register!

Quasiconformal and Sobolev mappings in metric measure spaces

Analysis on Metric Spaces Fall Seminar

Title: Quasiconformal and Sobolev mappings in metric measure spaces

Speaker: Panu Lahti, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Abstract: Starting from Gehring, the equivalence between the metric, geometric, and analytic def- initions of quasiconformality has been investigated by various authors. There are many results stating that if a mapping is metrically quasiconformal, perhaps only in a relaxed sense, then it is analytically quasiconformal, or at least a Sobolev mapping. In recent joint work with Xiaodan Zhou, we have shown an improved version of such a result, which seems to detect more Sobolev mappings than previous results in the literature. I will discuss these results as well as the general strategy of the proofs.

Professor Alex Iosevich, University of Rochester Title: Finite point configurations and the Vapnik-Chervonenkis dimension Abstract:

The Vapnik-Chervonenkis (VC) dimension was invented in 1970 to study learning models. This notion has since become one of the cornerstones of modern data science. This beautiful idea has also found applications in other areas of mathematics. In this talk we are going to describe how the study of the VC-dimension in the context of families of indicator functions of spheres centered at points in sets of a given Hausdorff dimension (or in sets of a given size inside vector spaces over finite fields) gives rise to interesting, and in some sense extremal, point configurations.

FALL 2021 Nonlinear Analysis Seminar Series

2021年10月5日 (火) 9:00 10:00
FALL 2021 Nonlinear Analysis Online Seminar Seminar Series Sagun Chanillo , Rutgers University Title: Local Version of Courant's Nodal domain theorem. Abstract:

Consider a smooth, compact Riemannian manifold with no boundary, endowed with a smooth metric. A famous theorem of Courant states that the k-th eigenfunction for the Laplace-Beltrami operator can have at most k nodal domains. Nodal domains are the open and connected sets where the eigenfunction does not vanish. H. Donnelly and Fefferman obtained some 30 years ago a local version of this theorem. Improvements were made by Chanillo-Muckenhoupt and others. In this talk we obtain the optimal local version of the local Courant theorem. We also relate this result to conjectures of S.-T. Yau on nodal sets, that is the zero set of eigenfunctions. The results of our talk have been obtained jointly with A. Logunov, E. Mallinikova and D. Mangoubi.
