SUMMARY:Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar - Cech cohomology
DESCRIPTION:Seminar: Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar\nTitle:
Cech cohomology\nSpeaker: Hsuan-Yi Liao\nAbstract: Welcome back to our stu
dent seminar. I am going to talk about Cech cohomology this week\, and we
will discuss about the seminar plan after my talk. As a warming-up talk\,
I want to show you something fundamental. So I just want to construct the
Cech cohomology and show you the reason why people like it. I hope you guy
s will like it too.

SUMMARY:Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar - Kahler Geometry
DESCRIPTION:Seminar: Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar\nTitle:
Kahler Geometry\nSpeaker: Alok Bakshi\nAbstract: My plan is to cover Newla
nder-Nirenberg theorem (at least the easy half of it) and discuss the equ
ivalent conditions (e.g. vanishing of Nijenhuis tensor) which ensure that
almost complex manifold is a complex manifold. Then (time permitting) I wi
ll talk about Kaehler metrics...

SUMMARY:Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar - Morse theory
DESCRIPTION:Seminar: Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar\nTitle:
Morse theory\nSpeaker: David Hughes\nAbstract: today's talk will be on Mor
se theory. I want to cover the basic results today\, and maybe next time a
pply them to the energy functional on the loop space of a manifold.

SUMMARY:Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar - Seiberg-Witten inva
riants
DESCRIPTION:Seminar: Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar\nTitle:
Seiberg-Witten invariants\nSpeaker: Damien Broka\nAbstract: Tomorrow I’l
l be talking about Seiberg-Witten invariants. These are invariants cooked
up from the topology of moduli spaces of solutions to the Seiberg-Witten e
quations. The latter are defined on compact\, oriented\, Riemannian\, smoo
th four-manifolds with Spin^c(4) structure as nonlinear PDEs whose solutio
ns are states of a very simple classical gauge field theory with much mild
er behavior than non-abelian Yang-Mills. The interest stems from being ext
ra-sensitive to the differential structure\, yielding invariants that some
times allows one to distinguish different smooth structures in the same to
pological family.\n\nMy goal tomorrow is to introduce four-dimensional spi
n geometry (a lot of simplifications/identifications arise which are essen
tial to the developments of SW theory\, due to quaternionic calculus being
available) and study the moduli space of solutions (modded out by gauge e
quivalences) using the theory of elliptic PDEs and index theory. We will s
ee it is in fact a compact\, smooth\, and (if time permits) a *finite dime
nsional* (w/ a sketch of proof) manifold!\n\nThe room is 216\, the time is
5pm. See you then!\n\nBest\,\nDamien

SUMMARY:Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar - moment map and repr
esentation theory
DESCRIPTION:Seminar: Student Geometric Functional Analysis Seminar\nTitle:
moment map and representation theory\nSpeaker: Ehssan Khanmohammadi\nAbstr
act: On Wednesday I will talk about the momentum map: this is a map from a
symplectic manifold to the dual of the Lie algebra of the group acting on
it.\nAfter covering a few basic facts and examples\, I will focus on the
geometry of the momentum map and some of its applications in representatio
n theory.

ct: I will talk about the classification program for C*-algebras. The ulti

ly simple nuclear ones) by K-theory. This will be a two-part talk: tomorro
w I will discuss some history and basic definitions\, and next week I will
try to discuss the recent development of this program.
