L-functions in Analytic Number Theory: Jackie Voros

November 5, 2024

Online

The least quadratic non-residue has been a central problem in number theory for centuries. The average least quadratic non-residue was explored by ErdÅ‘s in the 1960s, and many extensions of this problem such as to the average least character non...

A matrix is called totally positive if all of its minors are positive. These matrices are important in mathe- matics, but checking whether a large matrix is totally positive can be challenging. In this talk, we explore whether certain matrices...

University of British Columbia

A fundamental aim of evolutionary biology is to describe and explain biodiversity patterns; this aim centers around questions of how many "species" exist, where they are most/least abundant, how this distribution is changing over time, and why...

University of British Columbia

The Poisson boundary of a random walk on a group is a probability space used to study the long-term behavior of the random walk. Because the group naturally acts on the Poisson boundary, various questions regarding the structure of this action can be...

Richard Stanley asked in 1995 whether a tree is determined up to isomorphism by its chromatic symmetric function. This question remains unanswered and frequently keeps the speaker awake at night. Our approach to understanding the strength of the...

Online

The synthetic analogue of the bar comonad controls the universal differentials in the bar spectral sequence of algebras over spectral operads. This can be viewed as a deformation of Koszul duality of such algebras. I will explain ongoing work with...

University of Victoria

Let $G$ be a graph with $n$ vertices. Let $A(G)$ be its adjacency matrix. Let $\lambda_1(G), \lambda_2(G)$ denote the largest and second largest eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix. Bollob\'{a}s and Nikiforov (2007) conjectured that for any graph $G...

Prairie Mathematics Colloquium: Martin Frankland

November 7, 2024

In topology, cohomology is an invariant we can assign to spaces. In algebra, there are also cohomology theories for various algebraic structures, such as group cohomology, Lie algebra cohomology, and AndrÃ©-Quillen cohomology of commutative rings...

An $H$-intersecting family of 3-uniform hypergraphs on $n$ labelled vertices is a family of hypergraphs $\mathcal{F}$ such that for any pair of hypergraphs $G_1, G_2 \in \mathcal{F}$, the intersection $G_1 \cap G_2$ contains a copy of $H$ as a...
