A modified separation method to solve a heat-transfer boundary value problem
We derive a general solution of the heat equation through two modied separation methods. The obtained solution is expressed as linearly combined kernel solutions in terms of Hermite polynomials, which appears to provide an explanation of non...
Volume entropy of a compact manifold is the exponential growth rate of balls in the universal cover. This seemingly coarse invariant contains a lot of geometric information of the manifold. We will discuss some relations to other invariants,...
A hyperplane arrangement is an arrangement of a finite set of hyperplanes in some vector space. Hyperplane arrangements generalize other famous combinatorial objects such as graphs and matroids. In this talk, we introduce a characteristic po...
We introduce the notion of congruences (modulo a prime number) between modular forms of different levels. One of the main questions is to show the existence of a certain newform of an expected level which is congruent to a given modular form...
Geometry, algebra and computation in moduli theory
I will explain the basic concepts of moduli and how moduli spaces can be constructed in algebraic geometry. Exploring the moduli spaces and issues arising from their construction lead to interesting interplay of geometry, algebra and computa...
Weyl character formula and Kac-Wakimoto conjecture
The character of the finite-dimensional irreducible modules over a finite-dimensional simple Lie algebra is given by the celebrated Weyl character formula. However, such a formula does not hold in general for finite-dimensional irreducible m...
Theory and applications of partial differential equations
I will talk in general about theory and applications of partial differential equations. A recent progress in the regularity theory for nonlinear problems will be also discussed, including uniform estimates of solutions in various function sp...
완전동형암호는 암호화된 상태에서 모든 계산을 지원하는 이상적인 암호로서 암호학계의 성배(holy grail)로 불리며 1978년 이후 오랫동안 미해결 문제로 알려져 있었다. 2009년 Gentry에 의해 처음 만들어진 후 많은 연구를 거쳐 실용화를 앞두고 있으며 2011...
Symplectic geometry has one of its origins in Hamiltonian dynamics. In the late 60s Arnold made a fundamental conjecture about the minimal number of periodic orbits of Hamiltonian vector fields. This is a far-reaching generalization of Poinc...
The general theory implies that the distribution of an irreducible Markov chain converges to its stationary distribution as time diverges to infinity. The speed of corresponding convergence is a significant issue in the study of mathematical...
<학부생을 위한 ɛ 강연> Convergence of Fourier series and integrals in Lebesgue spaces
Convergence of Fourier series and integrals is the most fundamental question in classical harmonic analysis from its beginning. In one dimension convergence in Lebesgue spaces is fairly well understood. However in higher dimensions the probl...
Elliptic curves defined over the rationals satisfy two finiteness properties; its group of rational points is a finitely generated abelian group and it has only finitely many points with integral coordinates. Bhargava and his collaborators e...
On the distributions of partition ranks and cranks
To explain Ramanujan's integer partition function congruences, Dyson's rank and Andrews-Garvan's crank have been introduced. The generating functions for these two partition statistics are typical examples of mock Jacobi forms and Jacobi for...
In this talk, we briefly introduce how a combinatorial object, Integer partition, is related with number theoretic subjects : q-series and modular forms. In particular, we will focus on (1) combinatorial proof for q-series identities (2) ari...
We will show that the averaging formula for Nielsen numbers holds for continuous maps on infra-nilmanifolds: Let M be an infra-nilmanifold with a holonomy group Phi and f : M -> M be a continuous map. Then N(f ) = 1/| Phi | Sum_{A in Phi} | ...
