Ellipsoid superpotentials: obstructing symplectic embeddings by singular algebraic curves, a talk by Grigory Mikhalkin

2024-03-13T14:20:00+02:00March 13th, 2024|Geometry Seminar, News|

How singular can be a local branch of a plane algebraic curve of a given degree d? A remarkable series of real algebraic curves was constructed by Stepan Orevkov. It is based on even-indexed numbers in the Fibonacci series: a degree 5 curve with a 13/2 cusp, a degree 13 curve with a 34/5-cusp, and so on. We discuss this and other series of algebraic curves in the context of the problem of symplectic packing of an ellipsoid into a ball...

Quantum circuit complexity for light polarisation or complexity with no complex number, talk by Jean-Pierre Gazeau

2024-02-12T09:43:47+02:00February 8th, 2024|ICMS Seminar, News|

I will present a form of quantum circuit complexity that extends to open systems. To illustrate the methodology, I  focus on a basic model where the Hilbert space of states is represented by the Euclidean plane. Specifically, the  investigation is about the dynamics of mixed quantum states as they undergo interactions with a sequence of gates.

A categorical view of singularity theory I and II, talks by Paul Horja

2024-02-02T12:36:00+02:00February 2nd, 2024|ICMS Seminar, News|

The mirror symmetry phenomenon was discovered by string theorists more than thirty years ago as an equivalence of two physical theories associated with very different geometries. The categorical point of view on this remarkable conjecture was famously introduced by M. Kontsevich in his 1994 ICM talk. As it became clear over time, homological mirror symmetry provides new approaches to many topics in symplectic and algebraic geometry. In these two talks, I will present a brief overview of the conjecture as well as some results inspired by mirror symmetry and obtained in joint work with L. Katzarkov about classical problems on discriminants and singularity theory.
