ABC Algebra Workshop

Title: Mahler measures in group rings (Lalin) Abstract: We will consider a generalization of the Mahler measure elements in group rings, in terms of the Lueck-Fuglede-Kadison determinant. A natural question is the variation of th   more››

Estimation of High-dimensional Covariance Matrix

High dimensionality comparable to the sample size is a common feature in portfolio allocation, risk management, genetic network and climatology. In this talk, we first use a multi-factor model to reduce the dimensionality and to estimate the covarian   more››

Character varieties of hyperbolic knot complements

To every hyperbolic 3-manifold M with nonempty boundary, one can associate a pair of related algebraic varieties X(M) and Y(M) called the character varieties of M. These varieties carry much topological info   more››

Giving the physics a chance: how to reduce the impact of numerical errors

Numerical errors are generally a bother, but in the case of adverse mobility ratio flows, such as those encountered when injecting water or gas (CO2) in oil reservoirs, they can be a real nuisance. In this talk we discuss the well-known grid   more››

Moving Unstructured Mesh Methods

Simulation of moving physical interfaces in 3-D is complicated by the need to (1) resolve complex realistic geometries with a spatial discretization, (2) accurately compute evolving physical fields on the discretization, and (3) evolve the di   more››

An extension to the Brun-Titchmarsh theorem

The Siegel-Walfisz theorem states that for any B>0, we have Sp=x, p?d (mod v) 1 ~ x/f(v) log(x) for v = logB(x) and (v,d)=1. This only gives an asymptotic formula for the number of primes in an arithmetic progression for quite a small modulus v co   more››

Manin conjectures for K3 surfaces

The Manin conjectures describe for geometrically easy varieties how the number of their rational points of bounded height should grow as the height bound varies. In this talk I will describe recent computations that suggest a similar statement for   more››
