=== September 8: Tess Anderson (Madison) ===
+
Title: A Spherical Maximal Function along the Primes
+
 
+
Abstract: Many problems at the interface of analysis and number theory involve showing that the primes, though deterministic, exhibit random behavior.  The Green-Tao theorem stating that the primes contain infinitely long arithmetic progressions is one such example.  In this talk, we show that prime vectors equidistribute on the sphere in the same manner as a random set of integer vectors would be expected to.  We further quantify this with explicit bounds for naturally occurring maximal functions, which connects classical tools from harmonic analysis with analytic number theory.  This is joint work with Cook, Hughes, and Kumchev.

=== September 22: Jaeyoung Byeon (KAIST) ===
+
Title: Patterns formation for elliptic systems with large interaction forces
+
 
+
Abstract: Nonlinear elliptic systems arising from nonlinear Schroedinger systems have simple looking reaction terms. The corresponding energy for the reaction terms can be expressed as quadratic forms in terms of density functions.  The i, j-th entry of the matrix for the quadratic form represents the interaction force between the components i and j of the system. If the sign of an entry is positive, the force between the two components is attractive; on the other hand, if it is negative, it is repulsive. When the interaction forces between different components are large, the network structure of attraction and repulsion between components might produce several interesting patterns for solutions. As a starting point to study the general pattern formation structure for systems with a large number of components, I will first discuss the simple case of 2-component systems, and then the much more complex case of 3-component systems.

===October 6: Jonathan Hauenstein (Notre Dame) ===
+
Title: Real solutions of polynomial equations
+
 
+
Abstract: Systems of nonlinear polynomial equations arise frequently in applications with the set of real solutions typically corresponding to physically meaningful solutions.  Efficient algorithms for computing real solutions are designed by exploiting structure arising from the application.  This talk will highlight some of these algorithms for various applications such as solving steady-state problems of hyperbolic conservation laws, solving semidefinite programs, and computing all steady-state solutions of the Kuramoto model.

===October 13: Tomoko Kitagawa (Berkeley) ===
+
Title: A Global History of Mathematics from 1650 to 2017
+
 
+
Abstract: This is a talk on the global history of mathematics. We will first focus on France by revisiting some of the conversations between Blaise Pascal (1623–1662) and Pierre de Fermat (1607–1665). These two “mathematicians” discussed ways of calculating the possibility of winning a gamble and exchanged their opinions on geometry. However, what about the rest of the world? We will embark on a long oceanic voyage to get to East Asia and uncover the unexpected consequences of blending foreign mathematical knowledge into domestic intelligence, which was occurring concurrently in Beijing and Kyoto. How did mathematicians and scientists contribute to the expansion of knowledge? What lessons do we learn from their experiences?

+
===October 13: Pierre Germain (Courant, NYU) ===
+
Title: Stability of the Couette flow in the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations
+
  
Abstract: I will discuss the question of the (asymptotic) stability of the Couette flow in Euler and Navier-Stokes. The Couette flow is the simplest nontrivial stationary flow, and the first one for which this question can be fully answered. The answer involves the mathematical understanding of important physical phenomena such as inviscid damping and enhanced dissipation. I will present recent results in dimension 2 (Bedrossian-Masmoudi) and dimension 3 (Bedrossian-Germain-Masmoudi).
