"Fourier Transforms in Algebraic Geometry"
The Fourier transform is a powerful tool in real analysis and differential equations for understanding families of functions. In this talk, we will discuss how the philosophy of the Fourier transform can be applied in algebraic geometry to relate families of vector bundles on varieties which are socalled “FourierMukai pairs”. As an example, we will look at the FourierMukai pairing between an abelian variety and its Picard group.

"Strong 1boundedness and Property T"
In recent joint work with B. Hayes and D. Jekel, we showed that Property T II_1 factors are strongly 1bounded in the sense of Jung. In this talk, I will describe the historical context of this problem, and the solution.
This seminar will be held jointly online and in person.

"BlaschkeSantalo inequality for many functions and geodesic barycenters of measures"
Motivated by the geodesic barycenter problem from optimal transportation theory, we prove a natural generalization of the BlaschkeSantalo inequality and the affine isoperimetric inequalities for many sets and many functions.
Based on joint work with A. Kolesnikov.
This seminar will be held jointly online and in person.

"An Introduction to Orbifolds"
It is wellknown that the orbit space of a group action on a manifold is generally not a manifold. However, such quotients appear frequently in physics and geometry and possess certain characteristics that make them interesting objects to study. In this talk, we introduce a subclass of these spaces, called orbifolds, and consider different examples coming from both geometry and physics.

"Python and Jupyter for Teaching and Learning"
Jupyter notebook is an open source web application for creating documents which include text, code, data, equations and graphics. We will take a tour of the Jupyter ecosystem including JupyterHub for hosting computational environments, nbgitpuller for sharing notebooks, nbgrader for autograding assignments and Python packages for mathematical computing.

"Generalized superminimal surfaces and holomorphic representation (Part 2)"
I will continue from where we left off last time. We have related conformal minimal immersions of a domain in the complex plane into R^n to harmonic maps, and packaged them in terms of holomorphic data. We have also discussed complex maps and superminimal maps as special cases. This time we will fit these special cases into a hierarchy using complex analysis.

"Shotgun assembly of ErdosRenyi graphs"
We show that in the regime p>n^{1/2} polylog(n), the unlabeled G(n,p) random graph can be uniquely reconstructed from its 1neighborhoods with probability close to one, answering a question of Gaudio and Mossel. Based on joint work with Han Huang.
This seminar will be held jointly online and in person.

"Conjugations in L2 spaces on the unit circle and the real line"
One of the axioms of standard quantum theory requires that the Hamiltonian H, which is the operator that expresses the dynamics of the quantum system, be Hermitian. However, this requirement is mathematical rather than physical in character. One possibility to replace this requirement is to consider the conjugation PT and PT symmetries.

"Julia Sets"
In this talk, we will introduce the concept of Julia sets and some of the basic properties and their connections to the Mandelbrot set. We will introduce the concept of selfsimilarity and quasiselfsimilarity, and we will give some interesting results. The talk will be closed with some of the open questions related to the study of Julia sets.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
