Welcome to the Department of Mathematics
Weekly Seminars web page. We invite you to attend any seminar that may be of
interest. We will begin having seminar
teas on Monday, September 18, at 3:30 PM in room 209 Krieger, unless
otherwise posted. These teas will be held every Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday throughout the academic year, with a break during
intercession. Visit our home page for directions
and more information about our department.
UPCOMING SEMINARS - FALL 2000
Any changes are in red.
9/11/00 - Analysis
Christopher Sogge, from JHU will speak on "Global Existence
for Quasilinear Wave Equations Outside of Star-Shaped Obstacles" at 4:00 PM in 308 Krieger (Tea at 3:30 in 209 Krieger).
9/14/00 - joint Analysis &
Math Phys Seminar
Yoram Last, from Caltech & Hebrew University will speak on
"On the Spectral Theory of Anderson Type Hamiltonians" at 4:00
PM in 308 Krieger (Tea at 3:30 in 209 Krieger).
Abstract: The talk will discuss recent joint work with V.
Jaksic concerning general spectral characteristics of "Anderson type
Hamiltonians." These are self adjoint operators having an
appropriately defined random part.
9/18/00 - Analysis Seminar
Luca Capogna from University of Arkansas will speak on "Legendrian
Harmonic Maps" at 4:00 PM in 308 Krieger (Tea at 3:30 in 209
Abstract: In 1993 Korevaar and Schoen have introduced a definition
for Sobolev spaces of maps with target in a metric space. When the target
has non positive curvature one can prove existence, uniqueness and
regularity of energy minimizer. Jointly with F. H. Lin we study the case
when the target space is the Heisenberg group endowed with a Carnot
Caratheodory metric. Even if this space is not non-positively curved, we
can prove existence and some regularity results for the energy minimizers.
The proof is based on a characterization of the Sobolev spaces in terms of
legendrian and lagrangian maps.
9/20/00 - Number
Professor Kumar Murty of University of Toronto, will speak
on, "Discrete Logarithms on Elliptic Curves and Rank One Liftings"
at 4:30 PM, 308 Krieger Hall.
9/25/00 - Analysis Seminar
Paul Yang from Princeton, his title is: "A fully nonlinear
equation in conformal geometry". at 4:00
PM in Krieger 308.
