Abstract: Recently, Machine Learning (ML) approaches to data assimilation and modeling have been very successful in interpreting large amounts of data, such as human behavior prediction, marketing, etc. However, direct applications of machine...

Embedding calculus is a powerful tool which is useful in making quantitative and qualitative conclusions about the topology of embedding spaces. In this talk, we will give a geometric description of the fiber of Emb ( M , M ) → T ∞ Emb ( M , M )...

Let E be an elliptic curve defined over ℚ. Let p > 3 be a prime such that p - 1 is not divisible by 3, 4, 5, 7, 11. In this article, we classify the groups that can arise as E(ℚ(ζp))tors up to isomorphism. The method illustrates techniques for...

In everybody’s first course in category theory, we learn that categories have two different flavours of morphism: 0-morphisms (which are categories themselves), 1-morphisms (which are functors), and 2-morphisms (which are natural transformations). In...

Given two elliptic curves, the path finding problem asks to find an isogeny (i.e. a group homomorphism) between them, subject to certain degree restrictions. Path finding has uses in number theory as well as applications to cryptography. For...

We describe parametrizations of rings that generalize the notions of monogenic rings and binary rings. We use these parametrizations to give better lower bounds on the number of number fields of degree n and bounded discriminant.

In this talk we will cover the mathematics behind a security system that is thought to be secure against quantum computer hacking; the Supersingular Ell Isogeny Cryptosystem. Specifically the Supersingular Ell Isogeny Graph. This abstract object is...

In this talk we’ll continue to get to know bicategories by learning about what you can do inside a bicategory. We’ll learn about pasting diagrams as well as adjoints and equivalences inside bicategories before presenting some examples of what these...

Limits and colimit constructions are ubiquitous in category theory, and are one of the main tools used to understand how objects in a category relate to one another. These are very concrete and easily stated in terms of universal properties: given a...

Bicategories are an important aspect of modern category theory and provide the first instance of “category theory up to coherent isomorphism” we see when hiking up Mount Higher Category Theory. In this talk I will introduce the notion of bicategories...

Originally distributions were introduced in PDE-theory to generalize the notion of functions. However, this analytical concept also has some purely algebraic properties, which are worth considered. In particular, they are an important example of...
