Algebra Seminar

English

SPEAKER = Rick Jardine

UNIV = University of Western Ontario

ABSTRACT = The theory of path categories and path 2-categories for finite oriented cubical and simplicial complexes will be reviewed.  There is an algorithm for computing the path category P(K) of a finite complex K which is based on its path 2-category. This 2-category algorithm will be  displayed, and complexity reduction methods for the algorithm will be  discussed.

Applied Mathematics Seminar

SPEAKER = Max Lein

UNIV = University of Toronto

 

ABSTRACT = This talk is aimed at mathematicians and physicists.

A photonic crystal which is to light what a crystalline solid is to an electron, and many effects from solid state physics have been anticipated and realized experimentally with classical light. Recently, backscattering-free one-way edge modes have been observed in experiment, thereby proving the existence of photonic topological insulators.

SPEAKER: Evans Harrell (Georgia Tech)             ABSTRACT: I'll discuss a set of problems of convex geometry, where the point is to find the shape that optimizes a quantity of interest, and present various approaches to understanding and in some cases solving them. Among the problems discussed will some that were inspired by Mahler's famous conjecture about minimizing the product of the volumes of a convex body and of its polar dual body.
