Gromov-Witten-Floer theory and Lagrangian intersections in symplectic topology
Gromov introduced the analytic method of pseudoholomorphic curves into the study of symplectic topology in the mid 80's and then Floer broke the conformal symmetry of the equation by twisting the equation by Hamiltonian vector fields. We sur...
I will introduce the basic notions of model theory, a branch of mathematical logic, and survey its applications to other areas of mathematics such as analysis, algebra, combinatorics and number theory. If time permits I will present recent w...
The notion of essential dimension was introduced by Buhler and Reichstein in the late 90s. Roughly speaking, the essential dimension of an algebraic object is the minimal number of algebraically independent parameters one needs to define the...
We will talk about the Fourier restriction theorems for non-degenerate and degenerate curves in Euclidean space Rd. This problem was first studied by E. M. Stein and C. Fefferman for the circle and sphere, and it still remains an unsolved pr...
Recommendation system and matrix completion: SVD and its applications (학부생을 위한 강연)
이 강연에서는 최근 음악, 영화 추천 등 다양한 Recommendation System의 기본 아이디어인 Matrix Completion 문제와, 이를 해결하기 위해 Singular Value Decomposition을 통한 차원 축소 및 내재 공간 학습이 어떤 원리로 이루어 지는지 설명합니다. 그리고 ...
From 1980’s, the study of Kleinian groups has been carried out in the framework of the paradigm of “Thurston’s problems”. Now they are all solved, and we can tackle deeper problems; for instance to determine the topological types of the defo...
A classical theorem of Jacobs, de Leeuw and Glicksberg shows that a representation of a group on a reflexive Banach space may be decomposed into a returning subspace and a weakly mixing subspace. This may be realized as arising from the idem...

Recent progress on the Brascamp-Lieb inequality and applications
In his survey paper in the Bulletin of the AMS from 2002, R. J. Gardner discussed the Brunn-Minkowski inequality, stating that it deserves to be better known and painted a beautiful picture of its relationship with other inequalities in anal...
Riemann-Hilbert correspondence for irregular holonomic D-modules
The original Riemann-Hilbert problem is to construct a liner ordinary differential equation with regular singularities whose solutions have a given monodromy. Nowadays, it is formulated as a categorical equivalence of the category of regular...
Normal form reduction for unconditional well-posedness of canonical dispersive equations
Normal form method is a classical ODE technique begun by H. Poincare. Via a suitable transformation one reduce a differential equation to a simpler form, where most of nonresonant terms are cancelled. In this talk, I begin to explain the not...
Random conformal geometry of Coulomb gas formalism
Several cluster interfaces in 2D critical lattice models have been proven to have conformally invariant scaling limits, which are described by SLE(Schramm-Loewner evolution) process, a family of random fractal curves. As the remarkable achie...
In 1980s, Donaldson discovered his famous invariant of 4-manifolds which was subsequently proved to be an integral on the moduli space of semistable sheaves when the 4-manifold is an algebraic surface. In 1994, the Seiberg-Witten invariant w...
Many aspects of the differential geometry of embedded Riemannian manifolds, including curvature, can be formulated in terms of multi-linear algebraic structures on the space of smooth functions. For matrix analogues of embedded surfaces, one...
Creating information and knowledge from large and complex data sets is one the fundamental intellectual challenges currently being faced by the mathematical sciences. One approach to this problem comes from the mathematical subdiscipline cal...

Topological aspects in the theory of aperiodic solids and tiling spaces
After a review of various types of tilings and aperiodic materials, the notion of tiling space (or Hull) will be defined. The action of the translation group makes it a dynamical system. Various local properties, such as the notion of "Finit...

The mapping class group of a surface S is the component group of orientation-preserving homeomorphisms on S. We survey geometric and algebraic aspects of this group, and introduce a technique of using right-angled Artin groups to find geomet...
In the early 90's, physicists Bershadsky-Cecotti-Ooguri-Vafa conjectured that the analytic torsion was the counterpart in complex geometry of the counting problem of elliptic curves in Calabi-Yau threefolds. It seems that this conjecture is ...
Fefferman's program and Green functions in conformal geometry
Motivated by the analysis of the singularity of the Bergman kernel of a strictly pseudoconvex domain, Charlie Fefferman launched in the late 70s the program of determining all local biholomorphic invariants of strictly pseudoconvex domain. T...
