Spring 2017 Schedule of Upcoming Seminars:
Friday, February 17 11:30 am - 12:20 pm 304 MSC Speaker: Luke Dechow Title: A Brief Introduction to Some Historically Important Groups Abstract: For a few select groups, we'll discuss the questions, problems, or conjectures that brought rise to them, their constructions and/or presentations, and some important properties they have or applications they're used in (along with whatever else I feel like). Slight tangents may be made into coding theory, Moufang loops, or current problems in group theory. Friday, February 24 11:30 am - 12:20 pm 304 MSC Speaker: Serge Phanzu Title: The Poincaré Inequality Abstract: The Poincaré Inequality is a result in the theory of Sobolev spaces, named after the French mathematician Henry Poincaré. The inequality allows one to obtain bounds on a function using bounds on its derivatives and the geometry of its domain of definition. Past Seminars: | News: Like fall 2016, the spring 2017 semester is a talk free-for-all: anyone may give a talk on any topic, as long as it relates to Math & Stats in some way. Even if it doesn't relate to math or stats, as long as it's given by a grad student, it's probably fine. Contact Dave Walmsley (byrned@bgsu.edu), Mark Medwid (mmedwid@bgsu.edu), or Jake Laubacher (jlaubac@bgsu.edu) if you would like to give a talk! |
