Black holes are perhaps the most celebrated predictions of general relativity. Miraculously, these complicated spacetimes arise as explicit (i.e., exact expression can be written down!) solutions to the vacuum Einstein equation. Looking thes...
Since Belavin, Polyakov, and Zamolodchikov introduced conformal field theory as an operator algebra formalism which relates some conformally invariant critical clusters in two-dimensional lattice models to the representation theory of Viraso...
For each natural number k, the C^k diffeomorphisms of the circle form a group with function compositions. This definition even extends to real numbers k no less than one by Hölder continuity. We survey algebraic properties of this grou...
Topological surgery through singularity in mean curvature flow
The mean curvature flow is an evolution of hypersurfaces satisfying a geometric heat equation. The flow naturally develops singularities and changes the topology of the hypersurfaces at singularities, Therefore, one can study topological pr...
Free boundary problems arising from mathematical finance
Many problems in financial mathematics are closely related to the stochastic optimization problem because the optimal decision must be made under the uncertainty. In particular, optimal stopping, singular control, and optimal switching prob...
Fitch is a formal proof system recently gaining momentum in logic education due to its structural similarity to human reasoning. We introduce Fitch via its web-implementation at http://www.proofmood.com. Then we compare Fitch with more well-...
In this talk, we investigate some regularity results for non-uniformly elliptic problems. We first present uniformly elliptic problems and the definition of non-uniform ellipticity. We then introduce a double phase problem which is characte...
Mathematical Models and Intervention Strategies for Emerging Infectious Diseases: MERS, Ebola and 2009 A/H1N1 Influenza
Emerging infectious diseases have long been recognized as a continuous, inevitable, unpredictable threat to the global public health. Hence, understanding the underlying dynamics why they spread and what causes epidemics gives key ideas of i...

The spaces admitting a rational parameterization are called rational. In particular plane conics, including circles, are rational. We will explain a few interesting applications of the rational parameterization of a circle. Also several exam...
Concordance is a relation which classifies knots in 3-space via surfaces in 4-space, and it is closely related with low dimensional topology. Satellite operators are one of the main tools in the study of knot concordance, and it has been wi...
학부생을 위한 ε 강연회: Constructions by ruler and compass together with a conic
Trisection of an angle and duplication of a cube are among the famous problems of Greeks. Although they were proven later to be impossible in general, Greeks already knew that one can trisect an angle and duplicate a cube by supplimenting se...
Given a group of isometries of a metric space, one can draw a random sequence of group elements, and look at its action on the space. What are the asymptotic properties of such a random walk? The answer depends on the geometry of the space...
