## Automorphisms of the Compression Body Graph

Abstract: The compression body graph associated to a closed surface S is the graph whose vertices are compression bodies with exterior boundary S, and edges connect pairs of compression bodies where one contains the other. In joint work with Ian Biringer, we prove the automorphism group of the compression body graph is the mapping class group.In the talk, I will give some background on compression bodies, talk about geometric properties of the compression body graph coming from the work of Maher-Schleimer, and then discuss the ideas behind the work mentioned above.

## A METHOD OF ROTATIONS FOR LÉVY MULTIPLIERS

Abstract: We use a method of rotations to study the boundedness, , of Fourier multipliers which arise as the projection of martingale transforms with respect to symmetric stable processes, and other closely related Fourier multipliers which have potential applications to the study of boundedness of the Beurling-Ahlfors transform.### Department of Mathematics Colloquium, Professor Xue-Mei Li, Warwick University, MATH 175

Tuesday, Dec 1 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

## Perturbation to Conservation Laws

Abstract:Exploring symmetries leads us to work in homogeneous spaces. We discuss a family of stochastic interpolation equations on such spaces, reduction in complexity, and identifying scaling limits of a family of equations associated with inhomogeneous scaling of riemannian metrics.A motivation is to have a dynamical description for convergence of manifolds. The other is to generalize stochastic perturbation theory for Hamiltonian system.

## Refreshments will be served in the Math Library Lounge at 4:00 p.m.

## Surface of General Type With Maximal Canonical Degree

Abstract: It has been conjectured from a work of Beauville in the 70's that the maximal degree of the mapping given by the canonical sections of a surface of general type is 36. Earlier the largest such degree known was 16 from a work of Persson in 78. The purpose of the talk is to give an example confirming the conjecture. We would also explain a more recent joint-work with Ching-Jui Lai on further constructions and partial classification of such examples.### Operator Algebras Seminar, Chenxu Wen, Vanderbilt University, MATH 731

## Popa's AOP and Amenable Extensions Inside II$_1$ Factors

Abstract: Popa introduced the notion of asymptotic orthogonality property (AOP) and used it to show the maximal amenability of the generator masa inside a free group factor. Since then it has become the most successful approach in studying maximal amenable subalgebras. In this talk I will explain usually how a stronger version of AOP leads to examples of unique maximal amenable extension inside II$_1$ factors.### PDE Seminar, Professor Arpad Benyi, Western Washington University, REC 121

## Applications of Modulation Spaces

Abstract: We provide a brief introduction to the time-frequency analysis surrounding the so-called modulation spaces and indicate the applications of such an analysis to the boundedness of pseudo-differential operators and the regularity of PDEs. In particular, we will discuss the probabilistic Cauchy theory of the cubic non-linear Schrodinger equation on $\mathbb R^d, d\geq 3$.## Two Weeks

## Sharp Decay Properties of Discretized Green's Functions

Abstract: For a sparse, non-singular matrix, its inverse matrix is generally dense. However, for a class of matrices, the inverse matrix can decay fast along the off-diagonal direction. In the context of PDEs, the inverse matrices become Green's functions. The off-diagonal decay properties of Green's functions have profound implication in science and engineering applications. For instance, in quantum physics literature, this is related to the "near-sightedness principle" of electronic matters. In this talk we describe techniques for estimating the off-diagonal decay properties of Green's functions for Schrodinger type operators. We provide the first sharp decay estimate for discretized Green's functions obtained from the finite difference discretization, and from a variant of the pseudo-spectral discretization. The estimate is sharp in the sense that the asymptotic decay rate is independent of the domain size and of the discretization parameter. (Joint work with Jianfeng Lu)## 2016
