SUMMARY:Distinguished Lecture Series: Rankin Lecture: A machine for constructing representations of R. Thompson’s groups\, unitary and otherwise - Vaughan F.R. Jones (Vanderbilt University)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Thompson’s groups are often realised as groups of homeomorphisms of the unit circle. We will give a “group of fractions” construction of them which makes it easy to construct actions from a diverse collection of data. Actions that arise in this way include actions by smooth diffeormorphisms\, actions on the...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=9929

SUMMARY:Distinguished Lecture Series: Sneddon Lecture: Modelling collective cell movement - Philip Maini (University of Oxford)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Collective cell movement is ubiquitous in biology\, occurring both in normal processes (for example\, development\, wound healing) and in disease (for example\, cancer). In most of these examples\, how cells coordinate their movement is still not well understood. We will consider two examples: (i) angiogenesis is the process by which...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=9928

SUMMARY:Distinguished Lecture Series: Mitchell Lecture: Inference and application of the shared descent of genome in population samples - Elizabeth Thompson (University of Washington)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: The relatedness of individuals is reflected in the close similarity of their DNA that is descended from shared common ancestors. Genome descends and functions in segments\\; models and methods for the detection of shared segments of genome can greatly increase accuracy. The descent of genome segments also leads to population-level...\N\NNotes: The talk will be followed by a drinks reception from 5-6pm in the Maths and Stats Building common room.\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=9945

SUMMARY:Distinguished Lecture Series: Rankin Lecture: Why topology is geometry in dimension 3 - Nathan Dunfield ( University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: After setting the stage by sketching a few facts about the topology and geometry of surfaces\, I will explain why the study of the topology of 3-dimensional manifolds is inextricably linked to the study of homogenous geometries such as Euclidean\, spherical\, and (especially) hyperbolic geometry. This perspective\, introduced by Thurston...\N\NNotes: Nathan's talk will be followed by a drinks reception in the WILT foyer from 5-6pm.\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10040

SUMMARY:Distinguished Lecture Series: EMS Meeting: Koszul algebras\, cohomology and support varieties - Professor Nicole Snashall (University of Leicester)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Koszul algebras occur in many areas of algebra and algebraic topology\, and we start by introducing these algebras. We then classify the Koszul Brauer graph algebras\, noting that Brauer graph algebras form an important class of self-injective algebras and include Brauer tree algebras (which arise in the study of...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10107

SUMMARY:Distinguished Lecture Series: Sneddon Lecture: Active Matter: Statistical Physics and the Arrow of Life - Professor Mike Cates FRS FRSE (University of Cambridge)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Active matter comprises particles whose microscopic dynamics breaks time-reversal symmetry (TRS) via the continuous conversion of fuel into motion\, resulting in entropy production at the microscopic scale. Examples include bacteria and synthetic self-propelled collids. Equilibrium statistical physics concepts\, for instance the Boltzmann distribution\, are not applicable to active matter because...\N\NNotes: Professor Cates' talk will be followed by a drinks reception from 5-6pm in the Maths and Stats building.\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10041
