York Analysis Seminars, Summer Term 2000
Final programme.
Unless otherwise indicated, talks are in Vanbrugh College, room V/131, at
11:15 every (well, almost every!) Wednesday morning during term. Coffee
beforehand in the common room opposite (V/135) at 11:00. Everybody welcome!
- Wednesday 3rd May 2000
- Speaker: S. Dani (Tata, Bombay)
- Title: Flows on homogeneous spaces and Diophantine approximation
- Wednesday 10th May 2000
- Speaker: Brent Everitt
- Title: Geometric manifolds - an algebraic approach (II)
- Wednesday 17th May 2000 4:30 in V/120
- Speaker: Prof. Yuri Zarhin (Penn State, visiting Glasgow)
- Title: Hyperelliptic and trigonal curves, their jacobians and
endomorphisms

- Wednesday 24th May 2000 no seminar
- Wednesday 31st May 2000
- Speaker: Simon Eveson
- Title: Norms of Iterates of Volterra Operators (IV)
- Abstract: in earlier talks I have described the asymptotic
behaviour of |V^n| where V is a Volterra convolution operator and
|| is either the operator norm or the Hilbert Schmidt norm. In this
talk I shall return to the classical Volterra (indefinite
integration) operator and discuss the behaviour of |V^n| where ||
initially represents the trace norm, and then via
Schatten-von Neumann theory a large class of operator norms.
- Tuesday 6th June 2000 10:15 V/131; coffee 9:45 Vanbrugh SCR
- Speaker: Professor Gregory Margulis (Yale, visiting the Newton
Institute, Cambridge)
- Title: Quantitative Oppenheim conjecture
- The talk will be on refining his dramatic proof of the Oppenheim
conjecture using ideas from dynamical systems (flows in homogeneous
spaces)
- Note unusual day and time
- Wednesday 14th June 2000
- Speaker: Chris Fewster
- Title: Towards Optimal Quantum Inequalities
- Wednesday 21st June 2000
- Speaker: Dmitry Kleinbock
- Title: Khintchine-type theorems on manifolds
