Stability in the homology of configuration spaces
MATH 102 (special time, sushi will be served)
Tue 2 Jan 2018, 12:30pm-1:30pm

Abstract

This talk will illustrate some patterns in the homology of the configuration space F_k(M), the space of ordered k-tuples of distinct points in a manifold M. For a fixed manifold M, as k increases, we might expect the topology of these configuration spaces to become increasingly complicated. Church and others showed, however, that when M is connected and open, there is a representation-theoretic sense in which the homology groups of these spaces stabilize. In this talk I will explain these stability patterns, and describe higher-order stability phenomena -- relationships between unstable homology classes in different degrees -- established in recent work joint with Jeremy Miller. This project was inspired by work-in-progress of Galatius--Kupers--Randal-Williams.

Note special time. Sushi will be served.

Dynamics, geometry, and the moduli space of Riemann surfaces
ESB 2012 (note special time)
Mon 8 Jan 2018, 3:00pm-4:00pm

Abstract

The moduli space of Riemann surfaces of fixed genus is one of the hubs of modern mathematics and physics. We will tell the story of how simple sounding problems about polygons, some of which arose as toy models in physics, became intertwined with problems about the geometry of moduli space, and how the study of these problems in Teichmuller dynamics lead to connections with homogeneous spaces, algebraic geometry, dynamics, and other areas. The talk will mention joint works with Alex Eskin, Simion Filip, Curtis McMullen, Maryam Mirzakhani, and Ronen Mukamel.
