Topic: An Introduction to Homogeneous Spaces

Mahir Can | Tulane University

Abstract: In this talk we will explain how two important fields of mathematics, combinatorics, and algebraic geometry, meet. The interplay between the ideas of these two fields lead to remarkable results in representation theory.

Topic: An Illustration of Energy Methods

Kyle K. Zhao | Tulane University

Abstract: Energy methods is an important tool in the study of qualitative properties of partial differential equations. Charlie Doering (Professor of Mathematics and Professor of Physics, University of Michigan - Ann Arbor) once said: "Give me integration by parts and Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, I can conquer the world”. This talk will give an illustration of how these elementary tools could be utilized to prove non-trivial mathematical problems arising in applied science.
