29 September 2020 - 10:00am - Pisot's d-th root's conjecture for function fields and its complex analog
Julie Tzu-Yueh Wang
Pisot's $d$-th root's conjecture, proved by Zannier in 2000, can be stated as follows. Let $b$ be a linear recurrence over a number field $k$, and $d\ge2$ be an integer. Suppose that $b(n)$ is the $d$-th power of some element in $k$ for all...
During this talk I will recall some basic definitions involved in the notion of locally conformal Kähler (LCK) manifolds (complex structure, symplectic form, Kähler metric, etc.). I'll focus on LCK structures on solvmanifolds, compact quotients $\...
Nathan Jackson, Jan Zika and Jonathan Kress
Nathan Jackson and Jan Zika will speak on their experiences with 1st and 2nd-year peer-review assessments. Jonathan Kress will discuss future directions of peer-review assessments.
