https://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/de/node/7937
<p>Maryna Viazovska, who conducted her doctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics from 2008-2012 under the guidance of Don Zagier, was awarded the Ramanujan Prize for 2017. Professor Viazovska is honored “for her stunning solution in dimension 8 of the celebrated sphere packing problem, and for her equally impressive joint work with Henry Cohn, Abhinav Kumar, Stephen D. Miller and Danylo Radchenko resolving the sphere packing problem in dimension 24, by building upon her fundamental ideas in dimension 8.” The prize also recognizes her outstanding PhD thesis of 2013 at the University of Bonn in which she resolved significant cases of the Gross-Zagier Conjecture and her work prior to her PhD with A. Bodarenko and D. Radchenko resolving a long-standing conjecture of Korevaar and Meyers on spherical designs, that appeared in the Annals of Mathematics in 2013. The prize notes that the modular forms techniques developed by Viazovska will have a significant future impact in discrete geometry, analytic number theory, and harmonic analysis. It was awarded on December 22 (Ramanujan's birthday), 2017 at the International Conference on Number Theory at SASTRA University in Kumbakonam, India, Ramanujan’s hometown.</p><p></p><p><a href="https://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/de/node/7937" target="_blank">Weiterlesen</a></p>AktuellesAnkündigungenThu, 11 Jan 2018 10:27:02 +0000blohmann7937 at https://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.deMPIM Postdocs to Receive Prestigeous Award in Chinese Thousand Talents Program

<p>Geometric quantities of a surface, like distance, angle, or area, change when the surface is deformed. Euler discovered a quantity, the Euler characteristic, which remains unchanged. The formula of Gauss-Bonnet, a landmark result of mathematics, relates Euler characteristic with geometry. In the talk, I will present ideas of Descartes, Euler, and Gauss related to this formula.</p>ÖffentlichThu, 05 Oct 2017 09:53:38 +0000kohlhuber7433 at https://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de"Coarse Geometry".

<p>Coarse geometry can lead to useful classifications. For example, the word metric on a finitely presented group recognises (up to finite groups) if that group is the fundamental group of a 3-manifold and it carries a lot of information about the manifold. I will mainly talk about coarse geometry for complex surfaces, showing that bilipschitz geometry, which is purely topological and ignores any analytic structure, can recover the local analytic structure up to Zariski equisingularity.

<p>"Mathematics is not only a solo gig. When two or three mathematicians get together to share their ideas on how to attack a problem, sessions can easily stretch out for hours and even days. The dynamic is not unlike jazz musicians improvising with each spurring the other to go farther than they would go alone." <strong>Rob Schneiderman</strong>, New York based mathematician, regular guest at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, and professional Jazz pianist together with <strong>John Goldsby</strong> (bass) and <strong>Hans Dekker</strong> (drums) will explore the relations between <strong>Jazz & Math</strong> in a public concert, which will be followed by a get-together for an open discussion.
