Abstract

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 Homeomorphisms of Euclidean space

    AbstractThe topological group of homeomorphisms of d-dimensional Euclidean space is a basic object in geometric topology, closely related to understanding the difference between diffeomorphisms and homeomorphisms of all d-dimensional manifolds (except when d=4). I will explain some methods that have been used for studying the algebraic topology of this group, and report on a recently obtained c...

  • Classical Contributions to Modern Statistical Thinking

    课程描述 DescriptionThis course will focus on particular documents, either published articles or chapters, that have influenced current approaches to statistical applications and research, including documents from economics, psychology and philosophy. The plan will be to get participants in the class get fully involved with presenting the content of these documents and evaluating why they have...
