Genevieve Walsh, Tufts University Abstract: A group is coherent if every finitely generated subgroup is finitely presented, and incoherent otherwise. Many well-known groups are coherent: free groups, surface groups, and the fundamental groups of compact 3-manifolds. We consider groups of the form $F_m \by F_n$ or $S_g \by F_n…

Dr. Alexander Goncharov, Department of Mathematics, Yale University Abstract: The logarithm is unique, up to a multiplicative constant,  continuous function satisfying the addition law:ln (xy)= ln x + ln y. It is also the integral of dt/t from 1 to x. The quest for understanding of integrals was and is one of the main driving…

Interdisciplinary Center for Quantitative Modeling in Biology Mario Bonk, UCLA Abstract: Many questions in analysis and geometry lead to  problems of quasiconformal geometry on non-smooth or fractal spaces.  For example, there is a close relation of this subject to the problem of characterizing fundamental groups of hyperbolic 3…

Alexander Voronov, University of Minnesota Mysterious Duality   “Mysterious Duality” was suggested by Iqbal, Neitzke, and Vafa in 2001. They noticed that (already mysterious for any mathematician) toroidal compactifications of M-theory lead to the same series of combinatorial objects as del Pezzo surfaces (equally mysterious…

Dr. Michael Young at Iowa State will give a colloquium talk at the Department of Mathematics at UCR on Feb 26. While his research area is  in combinatorics, he started a  successful postbac program at Iowa State, and he was recently awarded an NSF grant to work on the issue of helping under-represented minority to overcome…
