On a dissipative Gross-Pitaevskii-type model for exciton-polariton condensates
Ryan Obermeyer (University of Illinois at Chicago)
4:00 PM in 636 SEO
We study a generalized dissipative Gross-Pitaevskii-type model arising in the description of exciton-polariton condensates. We derive rigorous existence and uniqueness results for this model posed on the one dimensional torus and derive various a-priori bounds on its solution. Then, we analyze in detail the long time behavior of spatially homogenous solutions and their respective steady states. In addition, we will present numerical simulations in the case of more general initial data. We also study the corresponding adiabatic regime which results in a single damped-driven Gross-Pitaveskii equation and compare its dynamics to the one of the full coupled system.
Joint work with C. Sparber, P. Antonelli, P. Markowich, and J. Sierra

Stable restrictions of vector bundles on projective varieties
Jay Kopper (UIC)
4:00 PM in 427 SEO
Recent developments in the study of stable sheaves extend the notion of stability to the entire derived category. This broader perspective can be used to study the classical moduli space. In this talk I will discuss these ideas in the context of restriction theorems: situations in which a stable vector bundle remains stable when restricted to a subvariety. Derived category techniques can produce stronger restriction theorems than were previously available. I will discuss applications if time permits.

Conversation and Refreshments
Mimi Dai (UIC)
3:00 PM in 636 SEO
The talks in our invited speaker series feature a conversation and refreshments period to strengthen the community of women practicing mathematics in the Chicago area and to promote the work of women in mathematics. This is an opportunity for everyone in our department to become familiar with a few of the many accomplished women who currently practice mathematics in or near the city.
We will be serving light refreshments.

Double ramification cycles for target varieties
Rahul Pandharipande (ETH)
2:00 PM in 427 SEO
A basic question in the theory of algebraic curves is whether a divisor represents the zeros and poles of a rational function. An explicit solution in terms of periods was given by the work of Abel and Jacobi in the 19th century. In the past few years, a different approach to the question has been pursued: what is the class in the moduli of pointed curves of the locus of such divisors? The answer in Gromov-Witten theory is given by Pixton's formula for the double ramification cycle. I will discuss recent work with F. Janda, A. Pixton, and D. Zvonkine which considers double ramification cycles for target varieties X (where Pixton's original question is viewed as the X=point case). I will also discuss the associated relations studied by Y. Bae.

Volumes and intersection theory on moduli spaces of abelian differentials
Dawei Chen (Boston College/IAS)
4:00 PM in 427 SEO
Computing volumes of moduli spaces has significance in many fields. For instance, the celebrated Witten's conjecture regarding intersection numbers on the Deligne-Mumford moduli space of stable curves has a fascinating connection to the Weil-Petersson volume, which motivated Mirzakhani to give a proof via Teichmueller theory, hyperbolic geometry, and symplectic geometry. The initial two other proofs of Witten's conjecture by Kontsevich and by Okounkov-Pandharipande also used various ideas in ribbon graphs, Gromov-Witten theory, and Hurwitz theory. In this talk I will introduce an analogous formula of intersection numbers on moduli spaces of abelian differentials that computes the Masur-Veech volumes. This is joint work with Moeller, Sauvaget, and Zagier (arXiv:1901.01785).
