Seminars and Colloquia by Series

Monday, February 16, 2015 - 15:00 , Location: Skiles 006 , Dr. Tobias Hurth , graduate of Georgia Tech School of Math , Organizer: Joseph Walsh

Dr. Hurth is a recent graduate of the Georgia Tech School of Mathematics. After his talk, the AMS Graduate Chapter is taking Dr. Hurth to dinner at Gordon Biersch. Graduate students and others interested in speaking to Dr. Hurth are invited to join us. If interested, please RSVP to JD Walsh (in person or at <a href="mailto:walsh@math.gatech.edu">walsh@math.gatech.edu</a>).

Dr. Hurth will talk about two relatively simple, related switching systems: one in 1D, the other in 2D. For both systems, he will sketch how to analyse the density of the associated invariant measure. This is straightforward for the 1D-example, but proves somewhat unexpectedly difficult for the 2D one.
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 - 11:00 , Location: Skiles 005 , J.D. Walsh , School of Math , Organizer:
Many graduate students struggle to identify a thesis or dissertation topic. We'll talk about how to choose wisely. Using his own experiences as an example, JD will describe how graduate students and others interested in research can use what they know to identify promising topics and develop them into concrete proposals. JD has been in the Math Ph.D. program at Georgia Tech since 2012. Starting out with a general focus on mathematics, he used directed study courses and other university resources to identify his dissertation topic in less than a year. He was awarded a 2014 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship for his dissertation research proposal.
Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 11:00 , Location: Skiles 005 , Robert Rahm , School of Math , Organizer:
This is the first meeting of the newly formed AMS chapter at Georgia Tech. There will be refreshments provided by the AMS club. Robert will discuss Bergman spaces , Toeplitz operators and the Berezin transform and how they are related.
