Title : Lissajous toric knots
Speaker : Marina Ville (Tours)
Place : Amado 814, Technion

Joint work with Marc Soret. In a (N,q)-torus knot, a particle goes q times around a vertical planar circle which is being rotated N times around a central axis. On a Lissajous toric knot K(N,q,p), the particle goes through a Lissajous curve parametrized by (sin(qt), cos(pt+u))  while we rotate this curve N times around a central axis; we assume (N,q)=(N,p)=1. Christopher Lamm first defined these knots as billiard knots in the solid torus and we encountered them as singularity knots of minimal surfaces in R^4. They are naturally presented as closed braids which we write precisely: we derive that they are all ribbon or periodic, as stated by Lamm. Finally we give an upper bound for the 4-genus of K(N,q,p) in the spirit of the 4-genus of the torus knot.

Title : Braided finite tensor categories with Lagrangian subcategory of the form sRep(W)
Speaker : Daniel Sabag
Place : Amado 814, Technion

Supervisor: Prof. Shlomo Gelaki and  Prof. Emeritus Arye Johasz

Abstract: Let W be a purely odd finite dimensional supervector space over an algebraically closed field with characteristic zero. The category sRep(W) consisting of /\W-supermodules with even morphisms is a non-semisimple symmetric finite tensor category.

We classify braided finite tensor categories containing sRep(W) as a Lagrangian subcategory (=maximal symmetric subcategory).

Center for Mathematical Sciences invites you to:

Whitney Extension Problems:

C^m and Sobolev functions on subsets of R^n

(The 9th Whitney Problems Workshop)

Sunday 29.5.2016 - Thursday 2.6.2016

Technion, Haifa, Israel

    The conference will focus on some of the most vibrant developments in function theory related to the celebrated Whitney extension and trace problems for classes of smooth functions. These include new analytic and geometric methods in the study of differentiable structures on finite sets, extension and trace problems for functions in Sobolev spaces and spaces of generalized smoothness defined on closed subsets of R^n, geometric description of Sobolev extension domains, etc.

    The purpose of the conference is to bring together an international group of experts in the areas of function theory and functional and geometric analysis to report on and discuss recent progress and open problems in the area of Whitney type problems and thus foster interaction and collaboration between researchers in these fields.

Sunday-Thursday, September 25-30

The Mathematics Department at the Technion is inviting advanced undergraduate students to experience research level mathematics in a week of projects. The projects will be mentored by members, postdocs and graduate students from the department. In each project, a group of 2-4 students will investigate a topic (TBA).
