Fumiaki Suzuki "Birational rigidity of complete intersections."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Fumiaki Suzuk, UIC Abstract: A Q-Fano variety X is birationally superrigid if any birational map to the source of another Mori fiber space is isomorphism. It implies that X is non-rational and Bir(X) = Aut(X). After the works of several mathematicians, de Fernex proved that every smooth hypersurface of degree N in P^N is birationally superrigid for N at least 4. He also proved birational superrigidity of a large class of singular hypersurfaces of this type. In this talk, we extend the results to complete intersections. As a key step, we generalize Pukhlikov’s multiplicity bounds of cycles in hypersurfaces to complete intersections.

Join us as we kick off our 10th anniversary celebration with a special conversation on alcohol, a leading risk factor for public health.

Leadership from the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit and Center for Alcohol Marketing and Youth will speak, as will an expert from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which recently released its report, "Getting to Zero Alcohol-Impared Driving Fatalities: A Comprehensive Approach to a Persistent Problem."

A faciliated discussion and light reception will follow.

Joel Specter "Producing Surjective Arboreal Galois Representations ."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Joel Specter (JHU) Abstract: For most degree n polynomials defined over a number field F the Galois action on the roots is as unrestricted as possible - the splitting field is an S_n extension. In 1985, RWK Odoni found that the same is true for iterates polynomials. One may give the set of roots of all compositional iterates of a polynomial the structure of a directed graph: a pair of roots are connected if one is the image of the other under the polynomial f. Odoni showed that for most polynomials of degree n the subgraph consisting of the roots of the first k compositional iterates is a regular, n-branching tree of height k and the Galois group acts as the full automorphism group of this tree. Odoni's theorem is a consequence of Hilbert irreducibility. He shows that for the generic polynomial f_{gen} over F (i.e. the polynomial over the rational function field over F whose coefficients are independent indeterminants) the set of roots of all compositional iterates forms a regular, n-branching tree and the geometric Galois group acts as the full automorphism group of this tree. One expects that the behavior of the generic polynomial to be mimicked by most specializations. Hilbert irreducibility implies this is the case for any finite number of iterates - this is Odoni's theorem. However, it does not guarantee the existence of any single specialization whose Galois group is as large as possible (i.e. isomorphic to that of the generic polynomial) simultaneously for all iterates. Odoni conjectures that such a specialization exists. In this talk, I will discuss my proof of Odoni's conjecture over number fields. This expands on the work of Nicole Looper who proved the theorem for polynomials over Q of prime degree. The proof requires only a basic understanding of the ramification theory of algebraic curves and number fields and should be widely accessible. Time permitting, I will discuss a proof of the conjecture over the maximal cyclotomic extension of number fields.

Cheikh N'diaye "Methods of Algebraic Topology for the Non-local Yamabe problem.""
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Cheikh N'diaye, (Howard) Abstract: In this talk, we will present a solution of the fractional Yamabe problem for locally flat conformal infinities of Poincare-Einstein manifolds. This case is the counterpart of the locally conformally flat case of the classical Yamabe problem, however no non-local version of the Schoen-Yau Positive Mass Theorem is known. We will show how one can bypass such an issue and in a natural way, by using the Algebraic Topological argument of Bahri-Coron.

Apurv Nakade “Manifold Calculus and H-principle”
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker:Apurv Nakade, Johns Hopkins Abstract: In this talk, I'll explain the connection between Manifold Calculus (Goodwillie calculus for manifolds) and Gromov's h-principle. Manifold Calculus is a homotopy theoretic technique for studying embedding spaces of manifolds, and Gromov's h-principle is a classical tool for finding solutions to partial differential relations. I'll explain how h-principle can be used to extend Manifold Calculus to manifolds with tangential structures and present some of its applications.
