The $Delta$-twisted homology and fiber bundle structure of twisted simplicial sets

BIMSA Topology SeminarSpeaker: Mengmeng Zhang Hebei Normal University and BIMSA

Time: 15:30-17:00

Venue: 1129B

Zoom: 537 192 5549(PW: BIMSA)


In this talk, I will give a brief introduction for simplicial set theory. Then I will report our recent progress for unifying $delta$-homology, introduced by Alexander Grigor'yan, Yuri Muranov and Shing-Tung Yau, and twisted Cartesian product, introduced by Barratt, Gugenheim and Moore. We introduce $\Delta$-twisted Carlsson construction of $\Delta$-groups and simplicial groups, whose abelianization gives a twisted chain complex generalizeing the $delta$-homology, called $\Delta$-twisted homology. We show that Mayer-Vietoris sequence theorem holds for $\Delta$-twisted homology. Moreover, we introduce the concept of $\Delta$-twisted Cartesian product as a generalization of the twisted Cartesian product, and explore the fiber bundle structure. The notion of $\Delta$-twisted smash product, which is a canonical quotient of $\Delta$-twisted Cartesian product, is used for determining the homotopy type of $\Delta$-twisted Carlsson construction of simplicial groups.

Categorical symmetry — applications in 1+1D

Category and Topological Order SeminarSpeaker: Arkya Chatterjee Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Time: 09:30-11:00

Venue: Online

Tencent: 607 3645 0351


Symmetries are among the most important tools in the toolkit of a theoretical physicist. In the context of condensed matter physics, there is a long tradition of using symmetry to label and distinguish different phases of matter. The notion of symmetry becomes particularly rich in quantum systems; we now understand that symmetries come in various shapes and forms: anomaly-free, ('t Hooft) anomalous, higher-form, higher group, algebraic/non-invertible etc. All of these adjectives for symmetry may be unified, at least for finite symmetries, using the mathematical formalism of topological order in one higher dimension. We call this unified framework categorical symmetry. This categorical unification of symmetry has various applications in different contexts. In this talk, I will present two applications for 1+1D lattice models: identifying dualities and obtaining constraints on global phase diagrams. In the first part, I will discuss how the algebra of local symmetric operators encodes information about its categorical symmetry thereby leading us to dualities between different symmetry descriptions. In the second part, I will discuss how the relationship between boundary theories of 2+1D topological order helps us constrain the global phase diagram of 1+1D theories with finite symmetry.

Generalized Paley Graphs, Finite Field Hypergeometric Functions and Modular Forms

BIMSA-YMSC Tsinghua Number Theory SeminarSpeaker: Dermot McCarthy Texas Tech University

Time: 10:30-11:30

Venue: 1118

In 1955, Greenwood and Gleason proved that the two-color diagonal Ramsey number $R(4,4)$ equals 18. Key to their proof was constructing a self-complementary graph of order 17 which does not contain a complete subgraph of order four. This graph is one in the family of graphs now known as Paley graphs. In the 1980s, Evans, Pulham and Sheehan provided a simple closed formula for the number of complete subgraphs of order four of Paley graphs of prime order. Since then, \emph{generalized Paley graphs} have been introduced. In this talk, we will discuss our recent work on extending the result of Evans, Pulham and Sheahan to generalized Paley graphs, using finite field hypergeometric functions. We also examine connections between our results and both multicolor diagonal Ramsey numbers and Fourier coefficients of modular forms. This is joint work with Madeline Locus Dawsey (UT Tyler) and Mason Springfield (Texas Tech University).

Geometry of quantum state spaces

Geometry and Gravitation SeminarSpeaker: Ingemar Bengtsson University of Stockholm

Time: 17:15-18:30

Venue: 1120

Zoom: 839 2831 2262(PW: BIMSA)


Geometry of classical mechanics usually means symplectic geometry. In quantum mechanics this geometry is inseparably joined to the geometry of probability theory, creating a very rich structure. I will introduce this structure from scratch, assuming that the audience has not spent any thought on the geometry of finite dimensional quantum mechanics. But I will be gently leading up to a point of view from where you can see some unsolved problems that I am working on.

Deep adaptive sampling for numerical PDEs

BIMSA-Tsinghua Seminar on Machine Learning and Differential EquationsSpeaker: Tao Zhou AMSS, CAS

Time: 10:00-11:30

Venue: 1129B

Zoom: 537 192 5549(PW: BIMSA)


Adaptive computation is of great importance in numerical simulations. The ideas for adaptive computations can be dated back to adaptive finite element methods in 1970s. In this talk, we shall first review some recent development for adaptive method with applications. Then, we shall propose a deep adaptive sampling method for solving PDEs where deep neural networks are utilized to approximate the solutions. In particular, we propose the failure informed PINNs (FI-PINNs), which can adaptively refine the training set with the goal of reducing the failure probability. Compared to the neural network approximation obtained with uniformly distributed collocation points, the developed algorithms can significantly improve the accuracy, especially for low regularity and high-dimensional problems.
