[multiple] Charles Belfoure - The Paris Architect
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Local author Charles Belfoure will be discussing his critically acclaimed debut novel, The Paris Architect. About the book: "A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war." -Malcolm Gladwell In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money - and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist. But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what's at stake. The Paris Architect asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we'll go to make things right. Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved. About the author: Charles Belfoure is an author and architect who lives in Westminster MD. A graduate of the Pratt Institute and Columbia University, his practice is in historic preservation working as both an architect and historic preservation consultant. The Paris Architect is his first novel.

11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

Gilman Hall 132

The Center for Environmental and Applied Fluid Mechanics (CEAFM) fosters research and teaching involving fluid mechanics by bringing together students, faculty, and researchers from the Whiting School of Engineering, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, and the Applied Physics Laboratory. Research areas of the CEAFM faculty and students include fluid flow phenomena in engineering and science covering a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. This includes fluid flows that occur in industrial, transportation, and manufacturing applications, in ocean and coastal engineering, in the treatment of aquatic and air-borne contaminants, in planetary atmospheres and oceans, rivers, subsurface waters, and fluids deep in the earth's interior, in biological systems, and in the microscopic environments relevant to micro-fluidic engineering applications and to aquatic and atmospheric chemistry and biology.

Shadi Tahvildar-Zadeh "The Tiger and the Magic Hoop:
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Shadi Tahvildar-Zadeh, (Rutgers) Title: The Tiger and the Magic Hoop: The Dirac Particle and the Kerr-Newman Spacetime. Abstract: In 1965 Ezra (Ted) Newman and a team of graduate students taking his General Relativity course discovered what is now known as the Kerr-Newman metric. It was the first rotating electrovacuum solution of Einstein-Maxwell system to be found, i.e. a stationary axisymmtric spacetime with mass, charge, and angular momentum, thought to represent the vacuum outside a rotating, charged object. In this joint work with Michael Kiessling, we study Dirac's wave equation for a point electron in the topologically nontrivial, maximal-analytically extended Kerr-Newman spacetime, in the zero-gravity limit. Here, "zero-gravity" means G --> 0, where G is Newton's constant of universal gravitation. The following results are obtained: The formal Dirac Hamiltonian on the static spacelike slices is essentially self-adjoint; the spectrum of the self-adjoint extension is symmetric about zero, featuring a continuous spectrum with a gap about zero that, under two smallness conditions, contains a symmetric point spectrum. I will explain how this is connected with a new quantum-mechanical interpretation of the Dirac equation, proposed by us, in which the electron and the positron are not distinct individual particles, but merely two "topological-spin" states of a single, more fundamental particle. (Note: a physics background is not necessary in order to understand this talk!)
[multiple] Jon Beardsley "Noncommutative bialgebras in spectra and Hopf-Galois extensions"
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Jon Beardsley, Hopkins Abstract: We briefly review the notions of infinity operads and infinity categories before describing definitions of noncommutative bialgebras in spectra, allowing us to define Hopf-Galois extensions of noncommutative ring spectra. We give a number of interesting geometrically motivated examples of the latter objects.

[multiple] John Lesieutre "Some pathologies on blow-ups of P^3 at many points."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: John Lesieutre (IAS) Abstract: I will show how the classical geometry of point blow-ups of P^3 gives rise to counterexamples to some more recent questions in birational geometry. In particular, I will describe an infinite set of smooth projective varieties that are not isomorphic, but which all have the same derived category. I will also give an example of a nef line bundle on a threefold which vanishes on a countably infinite set of curves.
[multiple] Leon Takhtajan "On Bott-Chern forms of Hermitian holomorphic vector bundles."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Leon Takhtajan (Stony Brook) Abstract: I will discuss a method for explicit computation of Bott-Chern forms of holomorphic Hermitian vector bundles over a complex manifold. After reviewing the basic properties of Chern and Bott-Chern forms, I will describe descent and ascent equations for explicitly computing these differential forms.

Jim Owings "Two clues are no better than one."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Jim Owings (Maryland) Abstract:A bag contains a finite number of integers, no two the same. Players A and B have no knowledge of what numbers are in the bag or how many there are, only that they are all different. Each pulls a number from the bag. Let x be A's number, m be B's number. A must guess whether or not x is bigger than m. To aid in his guess A is allowed to examine t more numbers (the clues) from the bag. For a given t what strategy should A use to maximize his probability of being correct? We will show that, in a precisely defined sense, 3 clues are better than 1, but that 2 clues are not better than 1. The proof of the latter utilizes Ramsey's Theorem for hypergraphs. We will also discuss certain related results.
