(Joint work with Paul Balmer.) We propose a categorification of the notion of Mackey functor for finite groups, intended to capture "higher" equivariant phenomena occurring throughout mathematics which are invisible to ordinary Mackey functors. Examples of such structures include familiar equivariant objects such as: (abelian and derived) categories of linear group representations, stable module categories, ...

Abstract: We give an explicit construction of test vectors for $T$-equivariant linear functionals on representations $\Pi$ of $GL_2$ of a local field, where $T$ is a non-split torus. Of particular interest is the case when both the representations are ramified; we completely solve this problem for principal series and Steinberg representations of $GL_2$, as well ...

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Understanding how biological functions emerge from all molecular interactions is the aim of systems biology. However, the complexity of 25,000 (or even 300,000) genes and their expression products is mind-boggling. Is this complexity prohibitive? Yes, and No!

"Immigration and Invention: Evidence from the Quota Acts" Abstract Since (Hicks, 1932), economists have noted that inventions often economize on labor, so scarce labor should encourage more invention. But (Acemoglu, 2010) notes that in canonical macroeconomic models, plentiful labor encourages invention. The stakes of this debate are high in the policy context of mass immigration. ...

"Robust retrofitting planning under endogenous uncertainty" Abstract Retrofitting planning aims to strengthen strategic links in an infrastructure network, which is subject to failures due to disasters. The main focuses are network connectivity and post-disaster travel costs. In this talk, we propose a robust optimization framework to handle distributional ambiguity of decision-dependent random link failures in ...

Ultrafast control of matter phases is of both fundamental and technological interest. Here, we study the ultrafast dynamics of Ta 2 NiSe 5 by means of time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (trARPES) [1] and transient reflectivity measurements [2]. Ta 2 NiSe 5 is proposed to support an excitonic insulator (EI) phase below T C ≈ ...

"Using Massive Online Choice Experiments to Measure Changes in Well-being" Abstract GDP and derived metrics (e.g., productivity) have been central to understanding economic progress and well-being. In principle, the change in consumer surplus (compensating expenditure) provides a superior, and more direct, measure of the change in well-being, especially for digital goods, but in practice, it ...

This is the last conference of the semester and will be of a more general nature than the earlier more specialized conferences and workshops of the program. It will cover broad aspects of descriptive set theory and its connections with other areas of mathematics. Read more about "Descriptive set theory conference"
