AAC minicourse by Professor Matej Bresar

September 9, 2018 - September 15, 2018
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

During the week of September 9 to September 15, 2018, Atlantic Algebra Centre organizes a mini course “Functional Identities and Zero Product Determined Algebras" by Prof. Matej Bresar. Functional identities are an important combinatorial tool applicable to problems in noncommutative and nonassociative algebra, linear algebra, and operator theory. They have been used in an essential way for the solution of the well-known Herstein's Lie map conjectures, which remained open for three decades. Matej Brešar was one of the authors of…

The Ken Ireland Public Lecture: What is a Smart Village?

September 26, 2018
University of New Brunswick (Fredericton Campus) Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada

What is a smart village? Using mathematics for rural prosperity V. Kumar Murty (University of Toronto) We conceive of a smart community as one in which static social inequality is minimized. Modelling this mathematically and translating it into a development strategy is one of the big global challenges of our time. When implemented, it will affect 3 billion people, or about half the world's population. About the speaker: Kumar Murty received his BSc from Carleton University and his PhD in…

Mini-course “Representations of simple finite dimensional and affine Lie algebras”

January 21, 2019 - January 25, 2019
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

This mini-course will focus on Representation Theory of simple complex finite dimensional and affine Lie algebras. We will start with the introduction to the theory of infinite dimensional weight representations. Though the classification of irreducible representations is still open beyond the sl(2) case in general, in some subcategories this problem can be managed successfully. In particular, we will discuss the theory of Gelfand-Tsetlin modules and their generalizations in the finite dimensional case. A comparison will be given with the representations…

Integration Challenge at StFX

January 29, 2019
St. Francis Xavier University Antigonish, Nova Scotia Canada + Google Map

The integration challenge, modelled on an annual version at MIT, is a one-night event where first-year calculus students sign up to compete head-to-head solving integrals. The competition will run like a tournament in single-knockout format, and integration problems increase in difficulty through each round. Information about mathematics as a choice of major, and research opportunities are also planned at the event. Prizes and certificates are awarded to the top 3 finishers.
