Colloquium

Equivariant homotopy commutativity, trees and chicken feet

Commutativity up to homotopy can be daunting, and it becomes even more difficult to track when group actions get introduced. In the case of a finite group, however, the options for equivariant homotopy commutativity can be encoded using simple combinatorics, and we will show some examples.

*Talk will be offered live at 11:10a and replayed at 4:10pm*

Colloquium

Ramanujan: A Century Of Inspiration

Bruce C. Berndt, University of Illinois
Zoom Meeting ID: 998 6775 5871
Email mathcolloquium@vanderbilt.edu to request pass code

Srinivasa Ramanujan is perhaps the most enigmatic mathematician in the history of our subject. First, an account of Ramanujan’s life will be given. Second, the history of Ramanujan’s (earlier) notebooks and “lost” notebook will be provided. Third, the speaker will describe how he became fascinated with Ramanujan’s work, beginning with proving a few claims from his notebooks in February, 1974, and then since May, 1977, devoting all of his research efforts to proving the claims in Ramanujan’s earlier notebooks, lost notebook, and published papers. Fourth, some examples from Ramanujan’s notebooks and lost notebook will be given. This lecture will be aimed at a general audience.

Colloquium

The Navier-Stokes, Euler and Other Related Equations

Edriss S. Titi, Texas A&M University, University of Cambridge, Weizmann Institute of Science
Zoom Meeting ID: 998 6775 5871
Email mathcolloquium@vanderbilt.edu to request pass code

In this talk I will present the most recent advances concerning the questions of global regularity
of solutions to the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes and Euler equations of incompressible fluids. Furthermore, I will also present recent global regularity (and finite time blow-up) results concerning certain three-dimensional geophysical flows, including the three-dimensional viscous (non-viscous) “primitive equations” of oceanic and atmospheric dynamics.
