We will discuss the p-adic variation of the Eichler-Shimura isomorphism in the context of Shimura curves. In particular, we describe the finite slope part of the space of overconvergent modular symbols in terms of the finite slope part of the space of overconvergent modular forms. As an application we will explain how to attach Galois representations to certain overconvergent modular forms. This is joint work with Shan Gao.

Global spread of tuberculosis (TB) due to migration from developing countries to developed countries, poses an increasing challenge in TB control strategies and treatment efforts. A three-population compartmental model is proposed to capture the distinct impact of migration and cross-infection on TB Incidence. Global dynamics are completely established by Lyapunov theory.
Global analysis to a three-population tuberculosis model
Abstract: In this expository talk, we discuss self-similar groups (such as the Odometer and the Grigorchuk group) and their associated C*-algebras. We discuss the conditions under which these algebras are simple and purely infinite in terms of the action of the group in question on its rooted tree.
