The Southeast Geometry Seminar is a series of semiannual one-day events focusing on geometric analysis. These events are hosted in rotation by the following institutions:
- The University of Alabama at Birmingham
- The Georgia Institute of Technology
- Emory University
- The University of Tennessee Knoxville
The following five speakers will give presentations on topics that include geometric analysis, and related fields, such as partial differential equations, general relativity, and geometric topology.
- Natasa Sesum (U Penn)
- Alexandru Ionescu (U Wisconsin)
- Sergiu Klainerman (Princeton U)
- Alex Freire (U Tennessee Knoxville)
- Christian Hainzl (UAB)
A poster session will be hosted. There will also be an evening public lecture by plenary speaker Sergiu Klainerman entitled The Mathematical Magic of Black Holes.
Leo Chen: The Shape and Stability of a Flexible Sheet in a von Karman Vortex Street
Michelle Delcourt: Dessin and Manturov bracket shuffles
In this talk we will explore the connections between knot theory and combinatorics. Links are related to Grothendieck's dessins d'enfants. Cartographic one-vertex dessins can be represented by chord diagrams. The diagrams can be recorded as "words" using a finite alphabet (k-bracket parenthesis system). Many combinatorial objects are related to these Manturov bracket structures.
