Several conditions are known for a self-inversive polynomial that ascertain the location of its roots, and we present a framework for comparison of those conditions. We associate a parametric family of polynomials p_α(x) to each such polynomial p, and define cn(p), il(p) to be the sharp threshold values of α that guarantee that, for all larger values of the parameter, p_α(x) has, respectively, all roots in the unit circle and all roots interlacing the roots of unity of the same…

Antibodies are the standard biomolecule for marking molecular structures and delivering drugs due to their specific binding capabilities. However, they are expensive to produce and their relatively large size prevents their easy traversal of bi-lipid membranes. Over the past 30 years, molecular recognition has also been achieved through the use of aptamers, short oligonucleotide sequences that fold in conformations that allow them to specifically bind to targets. These aptamers are produced rapidly and efficiently through a process known as Systematic…

Title: The BNS invariant of the fundamental group of a surface bundle over a surface. Abstract: We will discuss some new results on the Bieri-Neumann-Strebel invariant of these groups, showing in particular that (with obvious exceptions) they algebraically fiber. As a corollary, we show that for "most" bundles these groups are not coherent.

GEMS Workshop: Superheroes vs. Supercomputers with Professor Jeho Park of Claremont McKenna College

February 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

  TOPIC: Superheroes vs. Supercomputers Superheroes like Wonder Woman, Black Panther, Superman, and Captain Marvel, just to name a few, all have "super" power and they save the world from "super"-villains. Well, just one catch--they are not real. In our real world, there are computers built for super power to save the (real) world. In this talk, you will be introduced to "super"computers built to defeat "super"villains (i.e., super difficult problems). To understand supercomputing, you will learn some (or all) of…

Tommaso Cremaschi (USC)

February 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Title: Volumes and filling collections of multicurves Abstract: In this talk we will be concerned with links L in a Seifert-Fibered space N such that their projection to the base surface is a collection of curves G in minimal position. After stating a hyperbolization result, for the complement of L, in terms of G we will study the volume of their complement and give combinatorial asymptotics. We will be particularly interested in the case where N is the projective tangent…
