Next Week

Here is a selection of seminars that might be of interest to string theorists in Oxford:

On Monday, June 3, at 12:45 in L3, a seminar in the String Theory series:
Anthony Ashmore (Oxford)
TBA
On Monday, June 3, at 14:00 in Dennis Sciama Lecture Theatre, a seminar in the Astrophysics Colloquia series:
Dr Phil Uttley (University of Amsterdam)
TBA
On Monday, June 3, at 14:15 in L4, a seminar in the Geometry and Analysis series:
Lukas Brantner (Oxford University)
Lie algebras in finite and mixed characteristic.
Further information: Partition Lie algebras are generalisations of rational differential graded Lie algebras which, by a recent result of Mathew and myself, govern the formal deformation theory of algebro-geometric objects in finite and mixed characteristic. In this talk, we will take a closer look at these new gadgets and discuss some of their applications in algebra and topology
On Tuesday, June 4, at 11:30 in Conference Room, DWB, a seminar in the Cosmology series:
Felipe Oliveira Franco (University of Geneva)
A null test to probe the scale-invariance of the growth of structure
On Tuesday, June 4, at 12:00 in L4, a seminar in the Relativity series:
Aron Wall (Cambridge DAMTP)
TBA
On Tuesday, June 4, at 15:30 in L4, a seminar in the Algebraic Geometry series:
Thomas Kahle (OvGU Madgeburg)
Linear syzygies, hyperbolic Coxeter groups and regularity
On Thursday, June 6, at 12:45 in L6, a seminar in the Strings Junior series:
Max Hubner
6d (2,0) SCFT
On Thursday, June 6, at 13:00 in Simpkins Lee Seminar Room, a seminar in the Dalitz Seminar in Fundamental Physics series:
Sebastian Trojanowski (Sheffield)
TBC
On Thursday, June 6, at 16:00 in L6, a seminar in the Number Theory series:
Valentina DiProietto (University of Exeter)
A non-abelian algebraic criterion for good reduction of curves
Further information: For a family of proper hyperbolic complex curves $f: X \longrightarrow \Delta^*$ over a puntured disc $\Delta^*$ with semistable reduction at the center, Oda proved, with transcendental methods, that the outer monodromy action of $\pi_1(\Delta^*) \cong \mathbb{Z}$ on the classical unipotent fundamental group of the generic fiber of $f$ is trivial if and only if $f$ has good reduction at the center. In this talk I explain a joint work with B. Chiarellotto and A. Shiho in which we give a purely algebraic proof of Oda's result.
On Thursday, June 6, at 16:15 in Simpkins Lee Room, Beecroft Building, a seminar in the Theoretical Particle Physics series:
Simon Badger (IPPP Durham)
Analytic methods for two-loop amplitudes in QCD
On Friday, June 7, at 16:00 in L1, a seminar in the Math Colloquium series:
Michael Hintermueller (Humboldt)
