Abstract:
Let $G$ be a simple algebraic group over the complex field $\mathbb C$, $B$ a fixed Borel subgroup, $P$ a parabolic subgroup containing $B$, $P'$ its derived group and $\mathfrak m$ the Lie algebra of its nilradical.
The nilfibre $\mathscr N$ for this action is the zero locus of the augmentation $\mathscr I_+$ of the semi-invariant algebra $\mathscr I:=\mathbb C[\mathfrak m]^{P'}$.
In this discussion, we focus on the study of $\mathscr N$ for $G=SL(n)$. …

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Anton Khoroshkin (U Haifa)\n
Abstract:
In this talk, I will introduce a new algebraic structure called "contractad" resembling the contraction of a subgraph in a simple connected graph.
Examples of contractads include Hamiltonian paths, spanning trees, and configuration spaces.
These examples admit presentations with quadratic relations and standard methods of homological algebra may help us to get functional equations for generating series.
As an application, I will show a simple generating series counting…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Yotam Svoray (University of Utah)\n
Abstract:
A key tool in understanding (complex analytic) hypersurface singularities is to study what properties are preserved under special deformations. For example, the relationship between the Milnor number of an isolated singularity and the number of A_1 points. In this talk we will discuss the transversal discriminant of a singular hypersurface whose singular locus is a smooth curve, and how it can be applied in order to generalize a classical result by Siersma, Pellikaan, and de Jong…

The bialgebra of hypergraphs is shown to have a cointeracting bialgebra structure.
We show that the associated polynomial is the hypergraph chromatic polynomial.
Moreover, hypergraphs occur in quartets: there is a dual, a complement, and a dual complement hypergraph.
These correspondences are involutions and give rise to three other double bialgebras, and three more chromatic polynomials.
In all we give eight…

Abstract:
In various cases, a law that holds in a group with high probability must actually hold for all elements. For instance, a finite group in which the commutator law [x,y]=1 holds with probability larger than 5/8 must be abelian. In the talk I’ll discuss a probabilistic approach to laws on infinite groups, using random walks, and present results, joint with Be’eri Greenfeld, answering a few questions of Amir, Blachar, Gerasimova, and Kozma.

An important combinatorial characteristic of finite-dimensional algebras is their length. The length of a finite system of generators for a finite-dimensional
algebra over a field is the least positive integer $k$, such that the products of generators of length not exceeding $k$ span this algebra as a vector space.
The maximum length over all systems of generators of an algebra is called the length of this algebra.

Abstract:

In 1961, Solomon proved that the sum of all the entries in the character
table of a finite group does not exceed the cardinality of the group.
We state a different and incomparable property here -- this sum is at
most twice the sum of degrees of the irreducible characters. Although
this is not true in general, it seems to hold for "most" groups. We
establish the validity of this property for symmetric, hyperoctahedral
and demihyperoctahedral groups. Using these…

Which 4-manifolds admit a flag-no-square triangulation? Just one family of examples, described by Przytycki and Swiatkowski, was known.
We introduce two “gluing” operations which allow us to construct new examples of flag-no-square 4-manifolds.
Furthermore, our construction technique may be of independent interest: we take copies of a single such 4-manifold
(which we know very little about) and carefully apply our operations to obtain 4-manifolds…

We show that for algebraic groups over local fields of characteristic zero, the following are equivalent:
Every homomorphism has a closed image, every unitary representation decomposes into a direct sum of finite- dimensional and mixing representations, and the matrix coefficients are dense within the algebra of weakly almost periodic functions over the group.
In our proof, we employ methods from semi-group theory. We establish that these groups are compactification-…

There are four non-isomorphic configurations of triples that can form a triangle in a 3-uniform hypergraph. Forbidding different combinations of these four configurations,

Here we systematically study all of these problems solving the new cases exactly or asymptotically.

We present results on the dynamics of standard univariate polynomials over quaternions and octonions from an algebraic point of view. We look at periodic and fixed points and emphasize the need to carefully define what we mean by these terms when it comes to dynamics over non-commutative rings. For quadratic monics over the octonions, we provide criteria for classifying fixed points as attracting, repelling, or "ambivalent", generalizing the complex case. This is a joint…

The result is obtained by a neat combinatorial observation communicated to the speaker by Terence Tao and Gjergji Zaimi via math overflow…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Elad Gal (Technion)\n
Abstract:
Let S be a set of natural numbers. Is it possible to find an integral n-ary quadratic form with f(Z^n)=S?
In this lecture we will discuss integral quadratic forms and questions of representability of natural numbers by quadratic forms. We will define "formally-supported sets" and present some types of questions that should be asked about such sets and forms. Mainly, we will be concerned with one specific example of a formally-supported subset, and using its properties to compute the…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Suren Danielian (Bar-Ilan University)\n
Abstract:
The notion of matrix integration was introduced in 2007 by Bhat and Mukherjee [1], as a natural counterpart to the classical notion of matrix differentiation [2]. It has several motivations in various areas, including the geometry of polynomials -- an extensive topic with many beautiful open problems, for example, Sendov's conjecture.
Not every matrix has an integral, and the problem of existence of integrable and non-integrable matrices with a given Jordan structure has…

The origins of majorization theory can be found in a variety of different contexts. The most notable examples are Muirhead's work on symmetric polynomials, Schur's work on Hadamard's inequality, and works by Lorenz and Dalton on income distributions. Hardy, Littlewood, and Polya laid the foundations of majorization as an independent theory.
Vector majorization is a preorder notion on the real vector space. A vector x is majorized by a vector y if, for any k, the sum of the k…

Abstract:
Survival analysis (SA) prediction involves the prediction of the time until an event of interest occurs (TTE), based on input attributes. The main challenge of SA is instances where the event is not observed (censored), typically through an alternative (censoring) event. Most SA prediction methods suffer from drawbacks limiting the usage of advanced machine learning methods: Ignoring the input of the censored samples, no separation between model and loss, typical small datasets and…

Associative central simple algebras are a classical subject, related to many areas of study including Galois cohomology and algebraic geometry. An associative central simple algebra is a form of matrices because a maximal étale subalgebra acts on the algebra faithfully by left and right multiplication. In an attempt to extract and isolate the full potential of this point of view, we study nonassociative algebras whose nucleus contains an étale subalgebra bi-acting faithfully on the…

Valuations are finitely additive measures on convex sets. The space of translation-invariant valuations carries a number of structures ( i.e., product and convolution), satisfying non-trivial properties. One such recently discovered property is an analogue of the classical Hodge-Riemann relations from algebraic geometry. In special cases, they lead to new inequalities on convex bodies, to be discussed in the talk.

Given a valued field (K,v) with valuation ring O and an algebraic group G over K, a model of G is a group scheme \mathcal{G} over O for which \mathcal{G}\times_O K=G.

The proof uses a combination of tools from model theory and algebraic geometry.

It turns out that f_π has even better integrability properties, namely, it is locally L^{1+r}-integrable for some r>0. This gives rise to a new singularity invariant of representations \e_π.

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Tamar Bar-On (Oxford)\n
Abstract:
Demushkin groups play an important rule in number theory, being the maximal pro-p Galois groups of local fields. In 1996 Labute presented a generalization of the theory for countably infinite rank pro-p groups, and proved that the p-Sylow subgroups of the absolute Galois groups of local fields are Demushkin groups of infinite countable rank. These results were extended by Minac & Ware, who gave necessary and sufficient conditions for Demushkin groups of infinite countable rank to…

Abstract:
The university problem for a class K of structures asks if there is a structure M in K such that every other structure in K embeds into. I will start by relating the universality problem for the class of wide Aronszajn trees to generalized descriptive set theory, and specifically to generalizations of Scott's theorem on the complexity of isomorphism classes in generalized Baire spaces. Next, we will see that in L there is a strong failure of this universality problem.…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Marco Zaninelli (Universiteit Antwerpen)\n
Abstract:
In 1927, E. Artin solved Hilbert’s 17th problem and showed that real positive definite forms are exactly the quotients of sums of squares of forms, but did not provide any bound on the number of squares appearing in such sums. In 1967, A. Pfister showed for every natural number n that all positive definite forms in R(X_1, …, X_n) are sums of 2^n squares. When restricting to quadratic forms, this bound is easily seen not to be optimal. In this talk, based on joint…

One of the main question in generalized descriptive set theory is whether there is generalized Borel-reducibility counterpart of Shelah's main gap theorem.
Which is stated as follows:
Let $T_1$ be a classifiable theory and $T_2$ a non-classifiable theory. Is there a Borel reduction from the isomorphism relation of $T_1$ to the isomorphism relation of $T_2$?
This question was studied by Friedman, Hyttinen, and Weinstein (former Kulikov), who gave a positive answer to this question for…

We study Lie algebras of vector fields on smooth affine curves with a trivial tangent bundle. These Lie algebras consist of multiples of one derivation and are simple. It was proven by A.

We prove that the bracket widths of Lie algebras of vector fields on smooth affine curves with a trivial…

Abstract:
The irreducible modules in the blocks of a tower of Hecke algebras of rank e are labeled by certain multipartitions called e-regular. The best-known case is for blocks of the symmetric groups over a field of characteristic p, where the rank e is p, and the multipartitions are just partitions. In general, the e-regular multipartions are generated recursively.
We consider a crystal in which the vertices are blocks, generated by Chevalley generators f_i. If we…

Abstract:
A group automorphism f: G —> G induces the action g \cdot x=gx f(g)^{-1} on G. The orbits of such action are called twisted conjugacy classes (also known as Reidemeister classes). The number of such classes for a fixed automorphism is called its Reidemeister number.
One reason for the interest in Reidemeister numbers is that they might give information on the number of fixed points of continuous self-maps of manifolds. One of the main goals in the area is…

Let G be a linear algebraic group over a field k. Recall that a G-torsor E-->X, where X is a k-variety, is said to be weakly versal if every G-torsor over a k-field is a specialization of E-->X.

Versal torsors are important to the study of essential dimension and also to cohomological invariants.

Given a group G acting on a set X, an element g of G is called a derangement if it acts without fixed points on X.

Abstract:
A word w of letters on edges of the underlying graph of a deterministic
finite automaton (DFA) is called synchronizing if w sends all states of
the automaton to a unique state.
J. Černy discovered in 1964 a sequence of n-state complete DFA
possessing a minimal synchronizing word of length (n-1)^2.
The hypothesis, well known today as the Černy conjecture, formulated in 1966 by Starke, claims that the precise upper bound on the length of a synchronizing word…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Emanuel Milman, Technion\n
Abstract:
The classical isoperimetric inequality in Euclidean space R^n states that among all sets (“bubbles”) of prescribed volume, the Euclidean ball minimizes surface area. One may similarly consider isoperimetric problems for more general metric-measure spaces, such as on the n-sphere S^n and on n-dimensional Gaussian space G^n (i.e. R^n endowed with the standard Gaussian measure). Furthermore, one may consider the “multi-bubble”…

Abstract:
One way of generalizing Goedel's constructible universe L, is to replace the notion of definability used at successor stage, and take all subsets of the last stage which are definable using a logic L* extending first order logic. This will result in a model of ZF, denoted C(L*). In some cases it will also be a model of AC. As in the case of L, we can formulate the axiom "V=C(L*)", but unlike L, it is not always the case that C(L*) |= "V=C(L*)", that is, when we construct C(L*) inside…

The Burnside problem asks if finitely generated groups with identity x^n = 1 are necessarily finite. In general, the answer is negative if the exponent n is large enough.

The proof of Novikov and Adian is combinatorial, while the proof of Olshanskii is based on geometric considerations. We present a…

In 1927, E. Artin proposed a conjecture for the natural density of primes p for which g is a primitive root mod p. By observing numerical deviations from Artin's originally predicted asymptotic, Derrick and Emma Lehmer (1957) identified the need for an additional correction factor; leading to a modified conjecture that was eventually proved correct by Hooley (1967), under the assumption of the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis (GRH).

In linear partial differential equations, hypoellipticity is the condition that if Df=g, with g smooth, then f is necessarily smooth too. The best-known hypoelliptic equations are the elliptic equations, which are characterized by an isotropy property that can be readily checked point-by-point. Various more general point-by-point sufficiency criteria for hypoellipticity have been studied, beginning with famous work of Lars Hormander in the 1960’s. Quite recently these criteria have…

There are several ways to extend the notion of vector majorizations to matrices. Different types of matrix majorizations have been motivated by different applications in the theory of…

Abstract:
Moore proved it is consistent assuming the existence of a supercompact cardinal that the class of uncountable linear orders has a five element basis.
The elements are X, w1, the dual of w1, C, and the dual of C, where X is any suborder of the reals of size w1, and C is any Countryman line.
This raises the question of the existence of an Aronszajn line with no countryman suborder, we will present such a construction by Moore from the combinatorial principle Mho.

Jacobians of CM curves are abelian varieties with a particularly large endomorphism algebra, which provides them with a rich arithmetic structure.

Abstract:
For a set $\Pi$ of permutations (patterns) in $S_k$, consider the set of all permutations in $S_n$ that avoid all patterns in $\Pi$. An important problem in current algebraic combinatorics is to find pattern sets $\Pi$ such that the corresponding quasi-symmetric function is symmetric for all $n$. Recently, Bloom and Sagan proved that for any $k \ge 4$, the size of such $\Pi$ must be at least $3$ (with one exception), and asked for a general bound.

Abstract:
Given a smooth, geometrically connected and projective curve C defined over a finite field k, let K=k(C) be the function field of rational functions on C. The Tamagawa number \tau(G) of a semisimple K-group G is defined as the covolume of the discrete group G(K) (embedded diagonally) in the adelic group G(A) with respect to the Tamagawa measure. The Weil conjecture, recently proved by Gaitsgory and Lurie, states that if G is simply-connected then \tau(G)=1.

Abstract:
It was shown by M. Bhargava and P. Harron that for n=3,4,5, the shapes of rings of integers of S_n-number fields of degree n become equidistributed in a certain homogeneous space when the fields are ordered by absolute discriminant. We present a family of analogous distribution questions in some family of torus bundles over the aforementioned homogeneous space and discuss their answers. Our main tool is a new high dimensional equidistribution result in the flavor of Weyl's…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Ron Holzman (Technion)\n
Abstract:
Given a finite set $P \subseteq \mathbb{R}^d$, points $a_1, a_2, \dots, a_{\ell} \in P$ form an $\ell$-hole in $P$ if they are the vertices of a convex polytope which contains no points of $P$ in its interior.
We construct arbitrarily large point sets in general position in $\mathbb{R}^d$ having no holes of size $2^{7d}$ or more. This improves the previously known upper bound of order $d^{d+o(d)}$ due to Valtr. Our construction uses a certain type of designs, originating from…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Boris Solomyak (BIU)\n
Abstract:
A finite positive measure on the Euclidean space is called Rajchman if its Fourier transform tends to zero at infinity.
Absolutely continuous measures are Rajchman by the Riemann-Lebesgue Lemma, but it is a delicate question to decide which singular measures are such.
For many purposes simple convergence if the Fourier transform to zero is not sufficient and some quantitative decay is needed.
Recently there has been renewed interest and a lot of activity in…

Let T be a set of n triangles in 3-space, and let \Gamma be a family of algebraic arcs of constant complexity in 3-space. We show how to preprocess T into a data structure that supports various \emph{intersection queries} for query arcs \gamma \in \Gamma, such as detecting whether \gamma intersects any triangle of T, reporting all such triangles, counting the number of intersection points between \gamma and the triangles of T, or returning the first…

Abstract:
In a paper published at the Annals of Mathematics in 1977,
Magidor proved that it is consistent that the first cardinal at which
the generalized continuum hypothesis (GCH) fails be the very first
singular cardinal Aleph_w. This demonstrates the failure of a
compactness property for Aleph_w. In a paper from 1982, Magidor proved
that Aleph_w can satisfy yet another compactness property. It remained
open ever since whether the two results can coexist in the same model.

Our aim is to study topological minimality of some natural matrix groups. We show that the special upper triangular group SUT(n, F) is minimal for every local field F of characteristic distinct from 2. This result is new even for the field R of reals and it leads to some important consequences. We prove criteria for the

Obviously $g(k,n)$ is at most $k^n$, and Semple-Shalev proved that if $G$ is finitely generated and residually finite then $g(k,n)<k^n$ (for some, and hence for all sufficiently large k,n) if and only if G is virtually nilpotent. In this case, it is natural to ask how far can g(k,n) be from $k^n$. For k fixed and n ending to infinity, $g(k…

Abstract:
The affine Weyl group G of type C has many natural actions on finite

Their common feature is an action of the finite Weyl group of type C and
a "rotation", a one dimensional linear action of the translation
subgroup. The action of the finite Weyl group is multiplicity-free, so a
natural question arose, whether the original action is also
multiplicity-free? It turns out that it is not, but it is "almost," that…

In the talk I will describe examples such as the aperiodic Penrose and pinwheel tilings, together with several geometric, functional, dynamical and spectral properties that enable us to measure how far such constructions are from demonstrating lattice-like behavior.

SUMMARY:On a poset of set partitions
DTSTART:2021-11-14T12:00:00
DTEND:2021-11-14T13:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Yonah Cherniavsky (Ariel Univ.)\n
Abstract:
We define combinatorially a partial order on the set partitions.
This order appears to be equivalent to the Bruhat–Chevalley–Renner order on the upper triangular matrices.
We exhibit a connection between two statistics on set partitions --
the intertwining number (introduced by Richard Ehrenborg and Margaret Readdy in 1998)
and the depth-index (our parameter which is the rank function of our poset of set partitions).
This talk is based on joint …

DTEND:2021-11-10T09:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Marlies Vantomme (Bielefeld University)\n
Abstract:
(Graded) Submodule zeta functions are complex functions that are associated to an algebra of endomorphisms of a module. Pattern algebras are examples of such algebras of endomorphisms. In this talk, I will introduce these terms and discuss some properties of the (graded) submodule zeta functions associated to pattern algebras. I will also explain how the results for pattern algebras relate to general conjectures about submodule zeta functions…

SUMMARY:Enumeration of chains in partially ordered sets and polynomials with only real roots

DTEND:2021-11-07T13:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Christos Athanasiadis (Univ. of Athens)\n
Abstract:
The coefficients of the chain polynomial of a finite poset
enumerate chains in the poset by their number of elements. The chain
polynomials of geometric lattices are conjectured in this talk to have
only real roots and the analogous question is discussed for other
important classes of Cohen--Macaulay posets. Among other partial
results, the conjecture is proven for the subspace and the partition
lattices. An application to the face enumeration of the second
barycentric subdivision of…

SUMMARY:Ribbon Matrices
DTSTART:2021-10-31T12:00:00
DTEND:2021-10-31T13:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Harel Rozenfeld (BIU)\n
Abstract:
An r-ribbon tableau of shape λ⊢ rn is a filling of the cells of the diagram [λ] by the letters 1, . . . , n
such that each letter fills exactly r cells, which form a ribbon shape,
and for each 1 ≤ k ≤ n, the union of the i-th ribbons for 1 ≤ i ≤ k is a diagram of ordinary shape.
A ribbon matrix of order n is an n-ribbon tableau whose shape is an nxn square.
We present a new bijection from the set of ribbon matrices of order nxn to the set of…

Abstract:
Let $M$ be a compact metric space, $U\subset M$ be its open subspace, $f:M\to M$ be a homeomorphism of the compact into itself, and $x\in M$ be an initial point. It determines sequence of points
$x,f(x),\ldots,f^{(n)}(x),\ldots$ With the sequence of iterations, one can associate an infinite binary word $w_n=a$ for $f^{(n)}(x_0)\in U$, $w_n=b$ for $f^{(n)}(x_0)\notin U$
which is called the {\it evolution} of point $x_0$. If $f$ is invertible then $n\in \mathbb{Z}$,…

DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Yotam Smilansky, Rutgers\n
Abstract:
Combinatorial objects and methods naturally appear in the study of aperiodic order and mathematical quasicrystals. In the talk I will describe how aspects of matchings, graphs, counting and discrepancy can imply results on certain measures of order and disorder in long-range geometry, with applications to classical constructions such as the Penrose tiling as well as to recent developments in aperiodic order. Partially based on joint work with Yaar Solomon.

SUMMARY:Tiling the integers with translates of one tile: the Coven-Meyerowitz tiling conditions for three prime factors

DTEND:2021-10-24T10:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Itay Londner, Weizmann Institute of Science\n
Abstract:
It is well known that if a finite set of integers A tiles the integers by translations, then the translation set must be periodic, so that the tiling is equivalent to a factorization A+B=Z_M of a finite cyclic group. Coven and Meyerowitz (1998) proved that when the tiling period M has at most two distinct prime factors, each of the sets A and B can be replaced by a highly ordered "standard" tiling complement. It is not known whether this behaviour persists for all…

DTEND:2021-10-20T08:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Dr. Saurabh Gosavi (Bar-Ilan University)\n
Abstract:
Recall that every division algebra over a number field is cyclic. In this talk, we will show a higher dimensional analogue of this classical fact. More precisely, let $F$ be the function field of a curve over a non-archimedean local field. Let $m \geq 2$ be an integer coprime to the characteristic of the residue field. We will show that every element in $H^{3}(F, \mu_{m}^{\otimes 2})$ is a symbol. This extends a result of Parimala and Suresh where they show this when $m$ is prime and…

SUMMARY:On Multicolor Ramsey Numbers and Subset-Coloring of Hypergraphs
DTSTART:2021-10-17T13:00:00
DTEND:2021-10-17T13:00:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Chaya Keller (Ariel Univ.)\n
Abstract:
The multicolor hypergraph Ramsey number Rk(s,r) is the minimal n, such that in any k-coloring of all r-element subsets of [n], there is a subset of size s, all whose r-subsets are monochromatic.
We present a new "stepping-up lemma" for Rk(s,r): If Rk(s,r)>n, then Rk+3(s+1,r+1)>2n. Using the lemma, we improve some known lower bounds on multicolor hypergraph Ramsey numbers.
Furthermore, given a hypergraph…

DTSTART:2021-10-17T09:00:00
DTEND:2021-10-17T10:30:00
DSCRIPTION:Speaker: Tali Pinsky, Technion\n
Abstract:
The Lorenz equations are a classical example of a chaotic flow in R^3. As they are hard to analyze, a simpler geometric model that is chaotic in the same way has been proposed. Smale’s 14th problem was to prove that the original Lorenz flow is equivalent to the geometric model.
In this talk I intend to describe the geometric model and a recent extension that preserves more of the global topology of the flow. I’ll explain how this new model is strongly related to the geodesic flow on…
