The cohomology ring of moduli spaces of 1-dimensional sheaves on the projective plane

April 15, 2024 - 8:30 am

The cohomology of moduli spaces of 1-dimensional sheaves, together with a special filtration called the perverse filtration, can be used to give an intrinsic definition of (refined) Gopakumar-Vafa invariants. While there are methods to calculate the Betti numbers of these ... Read more

A foundational atomistic model for materials

April 15, 2024 - 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

ESB 1012

A new computational task has been defined and solved over the past 15 years for extended material systems: the analytic fitting of the Born-Oppenheimer potential energy surface as a function of nuclear coordinates. The resulting potentials ("force fields") are reactive, many- ... Read more

Generic representations and ABV-packets for $p$-adic groups

April 18, 2024 - 2:00 pm

ESB 4133

After a brief introduction on the theory of $p$-adic groups complex representations, I will explain why tempered and generic Langlands parameters are open. I will further derive a number of consequences, in particular for the enhanced genericity conjecture of Shahidi and its ... Read more

A nested model with boosting and waning of immunity from an infection with distributed resistance to pathogens carrier-state: Application to the Tilapia Lake Virus.

April 22, 2024 - 1:00 pm

ESB 4133 (PIMS Lounge)

This work proposes and analyzes an immune-structured population model of tilapia subject to Tilapia Lake Virus (TiLV) disease. The model incorporates within-host dynamics, used to describe the interaction between the pathogen, the immune system and the waning of immunity. ... Read more

Propagation failure, and intermittent spiking in Meinhardt's model of sidebranching

May 8, 2024 - 2:00 pm

ESB 4133

In this talk I will describe some properties of Meinhardt's model of sidebranching. This is a four-species reaction-diffusion model dating from 1976 describing the interaction of four fields, the concentrations of an activator, an inhibitor, the substrate, and a marker for ... Read more
