Colloquium: Liran Rotem (Technion): The (B)-conjecture and ​functional inequalities

2:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

Title: The (B)-conjecture and​functional inequalities


Abstract:


The log-Brunn-Minkowski inequality is an open problem in convex geometry regarding the volume of convex bodies. The (B)-conjecture is an apparently different problem, originally asked by probabilists, which turned out to be intimately related the the log-Brunn-Minkowski inequality.

Colloquium: Eyal Goren (McGill) - Complex multiplication - old and new

2:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem
Abstract: the theory of complex multiplication is more than a century old; its origins date back to Klein, Hilbert, Kummer, Weber, Deuring and many others. It has been instrumental in the development of class field theory and algebraic number theory. Yet, more than a century later we find new theorems that are truly surprising.

Analysis Seminar: Mira Shamis (London) "Applications of the Ky Fan inequality to random (and almost periodic) operators"

Title: Applications of the Ky Fan inequality to random (and almost periodic) operators
Abstract: We shall discuss the Ky Fan inequality for the eigenvalues of the sum of two Hermitian matrices. As an application, we shall derive a sharp version of a recent result of Hislop and Marx pertaining to the dependence of the integrated density of states of random Schroedinger operators on the distribution of the potential. Time permitting, we shall also discuss an application to quasiperiodic operators.

NT & AG Seminar: Sandeep Varma "Bernstein projectors for SL(2)"

2:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

Ross 70
Let G be the group SL(2) over a finite extension F of Q_p, p odd. For a fixed r ≥ 0, we identify the elements of the Bernstein center of G supported in the Moy-Prasad G-domain G_{r^+}, by characterizing them spectrally.
We study the behavior of convolution with such elements on orbital integrals of functions in C^∞_c(G(F)), proving results in the spirit of semisimple descent.
These are ‘depth r versions’ of results proved for general reductive groups by J.-F. Dat, R. Bezrukavnikov, A. Braverman and D. Kazhdan.
