Manchester Algebra Seminar - Simon May

13:00 - 14:00 11 October 2022

Speaker: Simon May - Leeds Title: A non-commutative resolution for discriminants of complex reflection groups. Abstract: In this talk I will introduce the complex reflection groups $G(m,p,2)$ in the Shephard--Todd classification and show that it's hyperplane arrangement gives rise to a non-commutative resolution of the groups discriminant. In...

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Martin Orr

15:00 - 16:00 11 October 2022

Speaker: Martin Orr (University of Manchester) Title: Galois bounds for unlikely intersections in a product of modular curves Abstract: The Zilber-Pink conjecture predicts that there should be only finitely many complex numbers t such that the three elliptic curves with j-invariants t, t+1, t-1 are all isogenous to each other. I will outline...

Training Course on In situ experiments and Digital Volume Correlation

12 - 13 October 2022

Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) is a powerful experimental technique that computes 3D full-field displacement and strain maps from volumes images acquired during a deformation process of a material. DVC is the 3D extension of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) which was first described four decades ago. The emergence of DVC started early 2000s with...

Manchester Algebra Seminar - Shezad Mohammed

13:00 - 14:00 18 October 2022

Speaker: Shezad Mohammed - Manchester Title. TBC Abstract. TBC Place: Frank Adams (this term the seminar will not be streamed online) Tea and biscuits 12:45 in the foyer

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Alex Torzewski

15:00 - 16:00 18 October 2022

Speaker: Alex Torzewski (King's College London) Title: Lawrence-Venkatesh bounds for curves in families Abstract: We outline how the method of Lawrence-Venkatesh to bound rational points via p-adic period mappings can be used to study curves in families. This leads to upper bounds on the number of rational points on curves of genus > 1 depending...

Koylan Ray - TBC

15:00 - 16:00 19 October 2022

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: TBC

For those who cannot attend in person the talk will also...

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Kyle Pratt

15:00 - 16:00 25 October 2022

Speaker: Kyle Pratt (University of Oxford) Title: The irrationality of a divisor function series of Erdos and Kac Abstract: For each positive integer k Erdos and Kac defined a number, call it alpha_k, which is given by an infinite sum involving the sum-of-kth-powers-of-divisors function. They conjectured alpha_k is irrational for every k. This...

Training Course on Advanced Scripting and Batching of Tomographic Datasets

26 - 27 October 2022

Although X-ray tomography is an attractive characterisation technique in materials science, it generates a huge amount of data at a fast rate and it can be extremely time consuming to process the data manually. A great benefit to creating scripts and plugins in Avizo is the ability to reuse a workflow on more than one image or to develop a bespoke...
