Yueh-Ju Lin "Deformations of Q-curvature."
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Yueh-Ju Lin, (Princeton) Abstract: Stability (local surjectivity) and rigidity of the scalar curvature have been studied in an early work of Fischer-Marsden on ``vacuum static spaces''. Inspired by this line of research, we seek similar properties for Q-curvature by studying ``Q-singular spaces'', which were introduced by Chang-Gursky-Yang. In this talk, we investigate deformation problems of $Q$-curvature on closed Riemannian manifolds with dimensions $n\geq 3$. In particular, we prove local surjectivity for non-$Q$-singular spaces and local rigidity of flat manifolds. For global results, we show that any smooth functions can be realized as a $Q$-curvature on generic $Q$-flat manifolds. However, a locally conformally flat metric on $n$-tori with nonnegative $Q$-curvature has to be flat. This is joint work with Wei Yuan.
Dimitri Zaganidis "On a (∞,2)-category of homotopy coherent adjunctions in an ∞-cosmos.'"
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Dimitri Zaganidis, EPFL Abstract: Riehl and Verity initiated a program to study the category theory of (∞,1)-categories in a model-independent way, through the study of ∞-cosmoi. Homotopy coherent monads in an ∞ -cosmos are of particular interest since they determine an Eilenberg-Moore object of (homotopy coherent) algebras. In this talk, I will generalize the graphical calculus of Riehl and Verity to provide a combinatorial description of the simplicial categories Adjhc[n] and Mndhc[n]. They encode homotopy coherent diagrams of homotopy coherent adjunctions and monads of the shape of the simplex Δ[n], and in particular for n=1 , provide appropriate definitions for homotopy coherent morphisms of adjunctions and monads. I will briefly introduce weak complicial sets and show that the nerve induced by Adjhc[−]:Δ→sSet−Cat gives rise to an (∞,2)-category of homotopy coherent adjunctions. If time permits, I will discuss a related conjecture for homotopy coherent monads.

Pierre-Emmanuel Jabin "Complexity of some models of interacting biological neurons."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Pierre-Emmanuel Jabin, University of Maryland, College Park Abstract: We study some models of for the dynamics of large groups of biological neurons: Those typically consist of large coupled systems of ODE's or SDE's, usually implementing some simple form of integrate and fire. The main question that we wish to address concerns the behavior of such networks as the number of neurons increases. Many particle systems (as they are used in physics, or multi-agent systems in general) naturally come to mind, as it is well known in such cases that propagation of chaos (i.e. the almost independence of each agent) can lead to a reduction in complexity through the direct calculation of various macroscopic densities. However the system under consideration here can be seen as multi-agent system with positive reinforcement so that correlations between neurons never vanish. In an ongoing work with D. Poyato, we first study the case where neurons are essentially fully connected. We show that in spite of this simple topology, the networks may exhibit different measures of complexity which can be characterized through the type of initial connections between neurons.

Qirui Li "Intersection number formula on Lubin-Tate spaces."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Qirui Li, (Columbia) Abstract: We consider a moduli space classifying deformations of a formal module over \bar F_q. Those spaces are called Lubin Tate deformation spaces. We will construct some CM cycles on this space. By adding Drinfeld level structures, we proved a formula for the intersection number between these CM cycles.
