Graduate Student Lecture Series

English

 

SPEAKER: Luiz Cordeiro (uOttawa)             ABSTRACT: The connections between topological and algebraic structures has been a topic of ongoing interest for at least 80 years, since Stone's work on representations of Boolean algebras ('36). In this talk I will present an overview of classical and recent results in the area. No prior knowledge of the subject will be assumed.

CRM - Colloquium

English

 

SPEAKER: Mihai Halic (CRM)             ABSTRACT: We investigate the relationship between absolute and relative semi-stability for vector bundles on projective varieties. The results are used to explicitly describe the moduli spaces of semi-stable vector bundles on Hirzebruch surfaces. The talk is aimed at a general audience.

Graduate Student Lecture Series

English
    SPEAKER: Adèle Bourgeois (uOttawa)             ABSTRACT: Representation theory is a branch in mathematics that allows the study of abstract algebraic structures, such as groups. It has many applications in other mathematical fields, which include Fourier analysis, geometry and number theory. To understand the representations of a given group, it suffices to study what we call its irreducible representations. In this talk, we will introduce the group of p-adic integers and determine the irreducible representations of this group.

Speaker: Gustavo Felisberto Valente (uOttawa)

Abstract: In this talk I will introduce the concept of a Random Walk on a group and relate this with Bratteli diagrams. There will also be presented a relationship between Bratteli diagrams and direct limits of groups.

Sub-title: 
Walking around on groups and Bratteli diagrams

Analysis Seminar

English

 

SPEAKER: Jason Crann (Carleton)             ABSTRACT: We finish our introduction to completely positive maps with several applications of Stinespring's representation theorem. In particular, we show that a complete order isomorphism of C*-algebras is necessarily a *-isomorphism. We illustrate the material with important examples from operator algebras and quantum information theory.
