  1. COMD Polynomial Arithmetic Dynamics Reading Group: Classification of Special Curves

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium, Online/Virtual
    Speakers: Charles Favre (École Polytechnique)

    To participate in this seminar, please register HERE.

    In this last talk of the reading seminar, I will present the overall strategy of the proof based on all. The material we have seen so far. I will make a special focus on the use of Ritt theory in this problem of classification.

  2. COMD Essential Seminar Series: Bounded Type Entire Functions, Rays, and Dreadlocks

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium, Online/Virtual
    Speakers: Dierk Schleicher (Université d'Aix-Marseille (AMU))

    To participate in this seminar, please register HERE.

    We discuss the escaping set of an entire function with a bounded set of singular values. In “good cases”, this escaping set is organized in the form of curves that we call “dynamic rays” (or “hairs”). In the other, “interesting cases”, the topology of the escaping set is more complicated; this leads to “dreadlocks”. While these are topologically more involved, for “practical purposes” they should have similar properties. Much of this talk is based on a joint paper with Günter Rottenfußer, Johannes Rückert, and Lasse Rempe; but I would like encourage discussions on further work, especially turning dreadlocks into useful and usable objects.

  3. Career Development Panel: Panel Discussion on Careers in Industry

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium, Online/Virtual
    Speakers: Murray Cantor (University of California, Berkeley), Christopher Severs (A9.com)

    COMD participants: To participate in this seminar, please register HERE.

    AGRS participants: To participate in this seminar, please register HERE.

    In this installment of the career development panel, our guests will share their experiences and insights with respect to transitioning from academic mathematics to industry careers.  Topics to be discussed include possible avenues for such transitions, key differences between the academic and industrial mindsets, strategies for leveraging the benefits of academic training in a company setting, and some of the mathematical problems currently of interest in industry.
