Title: 

Delays in Mathematics

 

Abstract:

If you've ever taken Montreal Transit, walked through McGill construction, or taken a flight, you're familiar with the concept of delays. In this Pizza seminar, we will discuss how delays arise in mathematics and how an aging process can drive us to infinity and beyond - and sometimes back.

Title: Computer-assisted theorems for the Ohta-Kawasaki problem.

Abstract:

In this talk we discuss a rigorous numerical method to study pattern formation in the Ohta-Kawasaki model in both two and three dimensions. This model appears in the study of di-block copolymers. The model describes, roughly speaking, the balance between long range attraction and short range repulsion.

Title: Spectral asymptotics for Steklov’s problem in domains with edges.


Abstract: We derive sharp eigenvalue asymptotics for Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator in the domain with edges and discuss obstacles for deriving a sharper (two-term) asymptotics.
