Abstract: In this dissertation, we combine the work of A. Aizenbud and D. Gourevitch on Schwartz functions on Nash manifolds, and the work of F. du Cloux on Schwartz inductions, to develop a toolbox of Schwartz analysis on algebraic groups. We then use these tools to study the intertwining operators between parabolic inductions, and the behaviour of intertwining distributions on certain open subsets. Finally we use our results to give new proof of results of F. Bruhat, on irreducibilities of degenerate principal series and minimal principal series.

A continuous population level model of the cooperation of HIV and syphilis in the MSM population of Vancouver.

Abstract
The HIV prevalence in the MSM population of Vancouver is slowly increasing,
but the amount of Syphilis cases is increasing very rapidly. Since Syphilis
facilitates the infection of HIV, there is a certain relation between the
infected populations. In this model, we explore the
cooperation of these two STD's and see what the influence of testing rate
is on the prevalence.

A snapshot of Heegaard Floer theory

MATX 1100
Wed 13 Dec 2017, 3:00pm4:00pm
Abstract
Heegaard Floer homology provides a suite of invariants for studying threemanifolds, introduced by Ozsváth and Szabó. This theory has, more recently, been expanded to treat manifolds with boundary through bordered Floer homology, providing the tools required to answer natural questions that arise when decomposing a threemanifold along a surface. This talk aims to provide a brief overview of Heegaard Floer theory, give a sense for some of the questions driving its study, and point to some recent progress on answering these.

Heegaard Floer homology as immersed curves.

Abstract
The Heegaard Floer homology of a manifold with torus boundary can be expressed as a collection of immersed curves (possibly decorated with local systems). This provides a geometric structure theorem, interpreting the algebraic invariants that arise in bordered Floer homology. From this point of view, the Heegaard Floer homology of a closed manifold obtained by gluing manifolds (with boundary) along a torus may be recovered as the Lagrangian intersection Floer homology of the associated curves. In practice, this reduces gluing problems to simple minimal intersection counts. I'll set up this machinery and describe some of the applications that follow. This is joint work with Jonathan Hanselman and Jake Rasmussen.
