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
