Title: Entropies of unimodal interval maps with periodic critical orbits

Abstract: This is a collaboration with Kathryn Lindsey, Diana Davis and Harrison Bray. We found a new characterization of the Galois conjugates of a unimodal interval map with periodic critical orbit, using Milnor-Thurston kneading theory and motivated by ideas from complex dynamics, which gives a stronger necessary condition for an algebraic integer to be such a number than prior approaches.


Speaker: Brian Klatt

Title: Introduction to Connections in Differential Geometry

Abstract: We'll briefly discuss the notion of a connection in differential geometry, especially the geometric problem that necessitates the concept and the geometric thinking that leads to the formalism and standard textbook definition(s).

See you there! And to the postdocs -- I'm still looking for volunteers for future weeks!
