NT & AG - Antoine Ducros (Sorbonne Université), "Non-standard analysis and non-archimedean geometry"

2:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Room 70A, Ross Building, Jerusalem, Israel
There is a general slogan according to which the limit behaviour of a one-parameter family of complex algebraic varieties when the parameter t tends to zero should be (partially) encoded in the associated t-adic analytic space in the sense of Berkovich; this slogan has given rise to deep and fascinating conjecturs by Konsevich and Soibelman, as well as positive results by various authors (Berkovich, Nicaise, Boucksom, Jonsson...).

Set Theory Seminar - Gabriel Fernandes (BIU) (part II)

2:00pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Ross 63
Abstract: We combine a technique of Steel with one due to Jensen and Steel to obtain a core model below singular cardinals kappa which are sufficiently closed under the beth function, assuming that there is no premouse of height kappa with unboundedly many Woodin cardinals. The motivation for isolating such core model is computing a lower bound for the strength of the theory: T = ''ZFC + there is a singular cardinal kappa such that the set of ordinals below kappa where GCH holds is stationary and co-stationary''.

T&G: John Pardon (Princeton), Structural results in wrapped Floer theory

1:00pm to 2:30pm

Location: 

Room 110, Manchester Building, Jerusalem, Israel
I will discuss results relating different partially wrapped Fukaya categories. These include a K\"unneth formula, a `stop removal' result relating partially wrapped Fukaya categories relative to different stops, and a gluing formula for wrapped Fukaya categories. The techniques also lead to generation results for Weinstein manifolds and for Lefschetz fibrations. The methods are mainly geometric, and the key underlying Floer theoretic fact is an exact triangle in the Fukaya category associated to Lagrangian surgery along a short Reeb chord at infinity.

Combinatorics: Raphy Yuster (U. Haifa) "On some Ramsey type problems in tournaments"

11:00am to 1:00pm

Location: 

CS B-500, Safra campus
Speaker: Raphy Yuster, U. Haifa Title: On some Ramsey type problems in tournaments Abstract: I will talk about several Ramsey type problems in tournaments guaranteeing the existence of subgraphs with certain chromatic properties. Here are two such problems which attracted some attention recently: 1. Let g(n) be the smallest integer such that every tournament with more than g(n) vertices has an *acyclic subgraph* with chromatic number larger than n. It is straightforward that Omega(n) <= g(n) <= n^2. An improvement of both bounds is presented.

Combinatoric: Karthik C. Srikanta (Weizmann Institute) "On Closest Pair Problem and Contact Dimension of a Graph"

11:00am to 1:00pm

Location: 

CS B-500, Safra campus
Speaker: Karthik C. Srikanta (Weizmann Institute) Title: On Closest Pair Problem and Contact Dimension of a Graph Abstract: Given a set of points in a metric space, the Closest Pair problem asks to find a pair of distinct points in the set with the smallest distance. In this talk, we address the fine-grained complexity of this problem which has been of recent interest. At the heart of all our proofs is the construction of a family of dense bipartite graphs with special embedding properties and are inspired by the construction of locally dense codes.

Combinatorics: Kim Minki (Technion) "The fractional Helly properties for families of non-empty sets"

11:00am to 1:00pm

Location: 

CS B-500, Safra campus
Speaker: Kim Minki, Technion Title: The fractional Helly properties for families of non-empty sets Abstract: Let $F$ be a (possibly infinite) family of non-empty sets. The Helly number of $F$ is defined as the greatest integer $m = h(F)$ for which there exists a finite subfamily $F'$ of cardinality $m$ such that every proper subfamily of $F'$ is intersecing and $F'$ itself is not intersecting. For example, Helly's theorem asserts that the family of all convex sets in $d$-dimensional Euclidean space has Helly number $d+1$.

Combinatorics: problem session

11:00am to 1:00pm

Location: 

CS B-500, Safra campus
Speaker: Eyal Karni, BIU Title: Combinatorial high dimensional expanders Abstract: An eps-expander is a graph G=(V,E) in which every set of vertices X where |X|<=|V|/2 satisfies |E(X,X^c)|>=eps*|X| . There are many edges that "go out" from any relevant set.
