Seminars and Colloquia by Series

Introduction to Singularity Theory 1

Series
Geometry Topology Working Seminar
Time
Friday, September 15, 2017 - 13:55 for 1.5 hours (actually 80 minutes)
Location
Skiles 006
Speaker
Peter Lambert-ColeGeorgia Institute of Technology
In this series of talks, I will introduce basic concepts and results in singularity theory of smooth and holomorphic maps. In the first talk, I will present a gentle introduction to the elements of singularity theory and give a proof of the well-known Morse Lemma that illustrates key geometric and algebraic principles of singularity theory.

Lagrangian Floer Theory II

Series
Geometry Topology Working Seminar
Time
Friday, March 17, 2017 - 14:00 for 1.5 hours (actually 80 minutes)
Location
Skiles 006
Speaker
John EtnyreGeorgia Tech

Please Note: This will be a 1.5 hour (maybe slightly longer) seminar.

Following up on the previous series of talks we will show how to construct Lagrangian Floer homology and discuss it properties.

Building Morse/Floer type homology theories III

Series
Geometry Topology Working Seminar
Time
Friday, February 17, 2017 - 14:00 for 1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
Location
Skiles 006
Speaker
John EtnyreGeorgia Tech

Please Note: Note todays seminar is just form 2 to 3 to accomodate a seminar at 3.

In this series of talks I will descibe a general proceedure to construct homology theories using analytic/geometric techiques. We will then consider Morse homology in some detail and a simple example of this process. Afterwords we will consider other situations like Floer theory and possibly contact homology.
