Oscar Kivinen "Hecke correspondences on Hilbert schemes of singular plane curves and knot homology."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Oscar Kivinen, UC Davis Abstract: Let C be a locally planar complex curve with m irreducible components. In this talk, I will define a certain subalgebra of the Weyl algebra on C^{2m} and show how it acts on the homologies of the Hilbert schemes of points on C via Hecke-like correspondences. I will then compare this action to similar actions on the equivariant homologies of affine Springer fibers in type A (i.e. local compactified Jacobians), and time permitting, certain knot homologies of the links of the singularities.
Mihalis Dafermos “On falling into black holes II”
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Speaker: Mihalis Dafermos, Princeton University and University of Cambridge Abstract: The celebrated "black hole" spacetimes of Schwarzschild and Kerr play a central role in our current understanding of Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Are these spacetimes stable, however, as solutions to the Einstein vacuum equations, in their exterior region? And what fate awaits physical observers who enter inside a "generic" black hole? It turns out that these two questions are intimately related and the answer to the second may be more disturbing than previously thought. These talks will try to explain how so.
