John Harvey: Estimating the reach of a submanifold

1:05pm, Zoom.

The reach is an important geometric invariant of submanifolds of Euclidean space. It is a real-valued global invariant incorporating information about the second fundamental form of the embedding and the location of the first critical point of the distance from the submanifold. In the subject of geometric inference, the reach plays a crucial role. I will give a new method of estimating the reach of a submanifold, developed jointly with Clément Berenfeld, Marc Hoffmann and Krishnan Shankar.

Tin Sulejmanpasic: Abelian gauge theories on the lattice: a theory of ̶e̶v̶e̶r̶y̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶ many things


In modern high energy physics abelian gauge theories are usually considered as boring cousins of non-abelian gauge theories. I will argue that they are under-appreciated, and much more versatile than naively thought
