Phillips Hall 385

On the Donaldson-Scaduto conjecture. Abstract. Donaldson proposed a new method to study manifolds with special holonomy groups, particularly Calabi-Yau 3-folds and G2-manifolds, utilizing a Lefschetz fibration. Motivated by collapsing G2-manifolds with K3 fibrations in the adiabatic setting, Donaldson and Scaduto … Read more

Algebraic models of semi-infinite flag manifolds Abstract. We first recall the classical Borel-Weil-Bott theorem and examine its representation-theoretic meaning. Then, we exhibit affine analogue of their representation-theoretic meaning and form several schemes. Finally, we identify the resulting schemes with so-called … Read more

Interior Hessian estimates for singularities of the Lagrangian mean curvature flow Abstract. In this talk, we discuss the history of the Lagrangian Mean Curvature equation beginning with the special Lagrangian equation of Harvey and Lawson. We consider the hypercritical case … Read more

Applied Mathematics Colloquium – Anna C. Nelson (Duke)

Mathematical modeling of polymerization processes in physiology Abstract: Polymerization, or aggregation, is essential for many physiological systems. For example, the emergence of a fibrin polymer mesh during the formation of a blood clot is required for a stable clot and … Read more

A geometric flow towards Hamiltonian stationary submanifolds Abstract. In joint work with Jingyi Chen, we introduce a geometric flow for Lagrangian submanifolds in a Kähler manifold which stays in its initial Hamiltonian isotopy class and is a gradient flow for … Read more
