Fall Seminars
Shabnam Akhtari (10:00): 607 Algebraic Number Theory
This course is not a standard course in algebraic number theory. While a graduate course in algebraic number theory is not a prerequisite, we will recall and use some important theorems and tools from classical algebraic number theory. The goal is to discuss the following topics:
1) Heights of Algebraic Numbers
2) Heights of Vectors and Polynomials
3) Lehmer’s Problem
4) Effective Lower Bounds for Height of Algebraic Numbers
5) Effective Computations in Number Fields (ideals, fundamental system of units, …).
6) Height functions on algebraic curves.
Prerequisites: 500 Algebra and 500 Real Analysis.

Ben Elias(12:00) 607 Homological Algebra
We will develop the fundamentals of homological algebra, focusing on the category of modules over a ring. Topics will include: projective and injective modules, complexes, derived functors, homological dimension, Grothendieck groups, Morita equivalence, triangulated categories, and homotopy and derived categories. As time permits, we will also discuss: spectral sequences, derived Morita equivalence, stable categories, and hopfological algebra..

Winter Seminars
Ben Young (10:00) 607 Computer Algebra
Introduction to mathematical computing in sage/python, pitched particularly at graduate students in mathematics. The target audience is people who want to use computer experiment in their own work, as well as people who wish to learn the rudiments of software development. Topics include: crash course in python/sage, basics of analysis of algorithms, test driven development, experimental mathematics, and selected other topics in computer algebra. There will be a project, and the class will be better if students actually have a project relevant to their research or career.
Victor Ostrik (12:00) 607 Affine Lie Algebras and Quantum Groups
Affine Lie algebras form an interesting class of infinite dimensional Lie algebras with many similarities to simple finite dimensional Lie algebras. In this class we will discuss some aspects of representation theory of affine Lie algebras which connect them with quantum groups — some very interesting deformations of universal enveloping algebras of simple Lie algebras.
Spring Seminars
Boris Botvinnik (10:00) Moduli Spaces of Manifolds and Cobordism Categories
The course is an introduction to recent development on smooth topology. The goal for the course will be to describe results by Madsen and Weiss as well as by Galatius and RandalWilliams on the structure of moduli spaces of manifolds. This is an active area of research with exciting applications. Prerequisite: 600topology, bundles, characteristic classes.
