### Prakash Belkale, UNC-CH – Geometric Methods in Representation Theory Seminar

Location: Phillips Hall, Room 367 Time: 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm Mode: In-Person Title: Rigid local systems and the multiplicative eigenvalue problem Abstract: Local systems are sheaves which describe the behavior of solutions of differential equations. A local system is rigid if local monodromy determines global monodromy. We give a construction which produces irreducible complex rigid local systems on a punctured Riemann sphere via quantum Schubert calculus and strange duality. These local systems are unitary and arise from a study of vertices in the…

### Renaud Leplaideur – Ergodic Theory Seminar

Speaker: Renaud Leplaideur Mode: Zoom Title: Nonlinear Thermodynamical Formalism Abstract: The Thermodynamical Formalism aims to study equilibrium states, that are measures maximizing the entropy plus the integral of some observable (called a potential). We will present a new formalism, called nonlinear, as it aims to study maximizing measures for the entropy + some functional on the set of invariant measures. This is a joint work with J. Buzzi and B. Kloeckner, and extends previous results with F. Watbled. The main point is that classical mean…
