Math Club Talk

Posted on: November 17, 2014

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 Featured Speaker: Dr. Mauricio Rivas “Morse Index Theory and Some Symmetry Results in the Calculus in the Small and in the Large” We discuss some connections and similarities between the analysis in the small and the analysis in the large via the Morse index of bilinear forms. We give examples showing […]

Geometric and Combinatorial Methods in the Representation of Quivers

Posted on: November 10, 2014

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Featured Speaker: Dr. Justin Allman “Geometric and Combinatorial Methods in the Representation of Quivers” Group orbits in the space of representations of a quiver generalize many fundamental ideas in linear algebra and geometry. From a slightly different point of view, Kontsevich and Soibelman defined a Cohomological Hall Algebra for every quiver […]

Math Club Talk

Posted on: October 1, 2014

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 Featured Speaker: Dr. Jason Gaddis “Quivers supporting graded Calabi-Yau algebras” The Calabi-Yau (CY) condition for algebras arises naturally from the study of boundary conditions on CY manifolds in superstring theory. CY algebras can be thought of as a generalization of Artin-Schelter regular algebras and so there is interest in studying them […]
