Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Tue. Unramified correspondance and virtual homology of mapping class groups

Time:Tue.,16:00-17:00, Nov.15, 2022

Venue:ID 271 534 5558 Passcode: YMSC

Speaker:Prof. Vladimir Markovic


I shall discuss my recent work showing that the Bogomolov-Tschinkel universality conjecture holds if and only if the mapping class groups of a punctured surface is large (which is essentially the negation of the Ivanov conjecture about the mapping class groups). I will also discuss my recent work with O. Tosic regarding the closely related Putman-Wieland conjecture.

Prizes and Distinctions

Vladimir Markovic has made fundamental contributions to the theory of three-dimensional manifolds, resolving several long-standing problems, among them the proof of the Thurston conjecture concerning immersed almost-geodesic surfaces in closed hyperbolic three-manifolds.

      Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Representation theory and a little bit of quantum field theory

      Abstract:One of the central foci of representation theory in the 20th century was the representation theory of Lie algebras, starting with finite dimensional algebras and expanding to a rich, but still mysterious infinite dimensional theory. In this century, we realized that this was only one special case of a bigger theory, with new sources of interesting non-commutative algebras whose repres...

      Dowling-Wilson conjecture and equivariant compactification of the vector group

      Abstract:In the first part of the talk, I will give a survey of the proof of the Dowling-Wilson conjecture using the Schubert variety of a hyperplane arrangement. The Schubert variety of a hyperplane arrangement is an equivariant compactification of the vector group with finitely many orbits. In the second part of the talk, we will discuss a recent work of Colin Crowley characterizing Schubert...
