In-person registration: Harvard Science Center Zoom Webinar registration Maggie Miller is an assistant professor in the mathematics department at the University […]

https://youtu.be/JB2WqmpmTgk New Technologies in Mathematics Seminar Speaker: Javier Gomez Serrano, Brown University Title: Computers and mathematics in partial differential equations: new developments and challenges Abstract: In this talk I will address the interaction between traditional and more modern mathematics and how computers have helped over the last decade providing rigorous (computer-assisted) proofs in the context […]

Algebraic Geometry in String Theory Seminar Speaker: Yan Zhou, Northeastern Title: Geometric origins of values of the Riemann Zeta functions at positive integers Abstract: Given a Fano manifold, Iritani proposed that the asymptotic behavior of solutions to the quantum differential equation of the Fano should be given by the so-called ‘Gamma class’ in its cohomology ring. […]

Quantum Matter in Mathematics and Physics Seminar Speaker: Motoo Suzuki (Harvard) Title: Spontaneously Broken (-1)-form symmetries Abstract: Spontaneous breaking of symmetries leads to universal phenomena. We extend this notion to (−1)-form U(1) symmetries. The spontaneous breaking is diagnosed by a dependence of the vacuum energy on a constant background field θ, which can be probed […]

CMSA Member Seminar Speaker: Uri Kol (Harvard CMSA) Title: Integrability and Hidden Symmetries in Black Hole Dynamics Abstract: The last decade has produced a number of remarkable discoveries, such as the first direct observation of gravitational waves by the LIGO/Virgo collaboration and the first black hole image taken by the Event Horizon Telescope. These discoveries mark the beginning of a […]

AQFT Lecture Series Speaker: Omer Offen (Brandeis) Title: Period integrals of automorphic forms and the residue method Abstract: I will discuss some aspects of period integrals of automorphic forms via examples. In particular, the residue method of Jacquet and Rallis and its recent application, joint with Friedberg and Ginzburg, to study new periods on the […]

Colloquium Speaker: Clark Barwick, University of Edinburgh Title: Factorization algebras in quite a lot of generality Abstract: The objects of arithmetic geometry are not manifolds. Some concepts from differential geometry admit analogues in arithmetic, but they are not straightforward. How then can we hope to make precise sense of quantum field theories on these objects? […]

https://youtu.be/G98ywTI82fg General Relativity Seminar Speaker: Nishanth Gudapati, Clark University Title: On Axially Symmetric Perturbations of Kerr Black Hole Spacetimes Abstract: The Kerr black hole stability problem is an important open problem in general relativity. In this talk, I will focus on the role of energy methods in the axisymmetric stability of Kerr black hole spacetimes. […]
