Dynamical Systems and Analysis Seminar - Reem Yassawi

14:00 - 15:00 26 February 2024

Speaker: Reem Yassawi (Queen Mary University) Title: Mahler equations for Zeckendorf numeration Abstract: Fixed points of Pisot substitutions can be visualised as projections, via a precompact acceptance window, of cut and project schemes. Fixed points of constant length substitutions are projections, along a diagonal, of a two-dimensional array...

Guy Blanchard -- 2D and 3D kinematics and mechanics of cell behaviours that drive epithelial morphogenesis [IN PERSON]

14:00 - 15:00 26 February 2024

Join us for this seminar by Guy Blanchard (Cambridge) as part of the North West Seminar Series in Mathematical Biology and Data Sciences The talk will be hosted in person in room 4.63 of the Simon Building. For those who cannot attend in person the talk will also be streamed via zoom, please contact or

Manchester Geometry Seminar - Richard Webb

15:00 - 16:00 26 February 2024

Speaker: Dr Richard Webb (Manchester) Title: An equator theorem for the 2-sphere Abstract: In this talk, we will focus on the group of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms (and area-preserving homeomorphisms) of the 2-sphere. A tremendous amount of progress has been made in the study of these groups in the last few years, but many problems remain, including...

Algebra seminar - Gemma Crowe

14:00 - 15:00 27 February 2024

Title: Twisted conjugacy in dihedral Artin groups Abstract: Dehn’s famous decision problems have been studied for a wide range of groups, including both decidable and undecidable results for the conjugacy problem. A new method for finding examples came in 2010, when Bogopolski, Martino and Ventura studied the conjugacy problem for some extensions...

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Bijay Bhatta

15:00 - 16:00 27 February 2024

Speaker: Bijay Bhatta (University of Manchester) Title: Skew Hermitian Forms over Type IV division algebra and Zilber-Pink conjecture Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss about the certain cases of Zilber-Pink conjecture on unlikely intersections in moduli space A_g of principally polarised abelian varieties of dimension g. In particular,...

AI-Fun Seminar | Andrea Paudice: 'Tail Bounds for Non-Smooth Stochastic Convex Optimization Under Heavy-Tailed Noise'

10:30 - 11:30 28 February 2024

The Manchester Centre for AI Fundamentals is hosting a series of seminars featuring expert researchers working in the fundamentals of AI. On 28 February, Andrea Paudice joins us from the University of Milan and the Italian Institute of Technology Genoa. Title Tail Bounds for Non-Smooth Stochastic Convex Optimization Under Heavy-Tailed Noise Abstract In...

Logic seminar: Ian Pratt-Hartmann

15:15 - 16:30 28 February 2024

Title: The adjacent fragment of first-order logic---and an excursion into word combinatorics Abstract: The adjacent fragment is a fragment of first-order logic in which the sequences of variables appearing in atomic subformulas are subject to the constraint that the indices of neighbouring variables differ by no more than 1. This fragment properly...

WCLC: 'The Myth of Venice': 16th-century music for cornetto & keyboard

13:10 - 13:55 29 February 2024

The appointment of Willaert at San Marco in 1527 heralded the emergence of Venice as a cultural super-power. This recital explores the composers who built the 'myth of Venice' in sound. “Glenton’s own diminutions are gently and lightly patted into the larger musical line. And together with Wollston’s calm, the whole thing sways like a dance...

Dynamical Systems and Analysis Seminar - Petra Staynova

14:00 - 15:00 04 March 2024

Speaker: Petra Staynova (University of Derby) Title: A cornucopia of bounds Abstract: In this talk we consider right-infinite words over a finite alphabet, which are generated via substitution rules. A well-known way of studying complexity of these words is via the question 'how many finite subwords of a given length does this infinite word have?',...

Manchester Geometry Seminar - Nikita Nikolaev

15:00 - 16:00 04 March 2024

Dr Nikita Nikolaev (Birmingham, Title: Geometry of the Exact WKB Method Abstract: I will present recent progress in the amazing newly emerging subject called exact perturbation theory. This theory provides methods to upgrade divergent perturbative expansions to analytic information. One such method...
