Jon Magne Leinaas, FI

I will discuss how one-dimensional interacting fermion systems, which in the low energy approximation are described by Luttinger liquid theory, can be reformulated as systems of weakly interacting particles with fractional charge and statistics. The approach is to use Landau's phenomenological approach to Fermi liquid theory, with quasiparticles interpreted as adiabatically dressed fermions. In an earlier publication the local charge carried by these excitations has been shown to be a fraction of the fermion charge. I will here focus on the statistics of the quasiparticles and show that by a change of momentum variables the Landau parameters of the generalized Fermi fluid can be transformed to zero. This change in interaction is compensated by a change of the Pauli exclusion, which is consistent with the interpretation of the quasiparticles as satisfying generalized exclusion statistics.

(The slides will be available here)

Time and place: Apr. 26, 2017 2:15 PM - 4:00 PM, B 738

 In this talk all spaces and spectra will be localised at 2. Many E-infinity ring spectra turn out to be `finitely generated' in the sense that there is finite CW spectrum and a map from the free E-infinity ring spectrum generated by it inducing an epimorphism in mod 2 homology. This turns out to be an interesting condition and I will discuss some examples such as HZ, kO, kU, tmf and tmf_1(3). One long term goal of this work is to produce `ultra-generalised Brown-Gitler spectra' and I will discuss this idea if there is time.

Time and place: Apr. 26, 2017 2:15 PM - 4:00 PM, Aud. 6 Eilert Sundt's Hus

Most demographic population models ignore males, but empirical evidence suggest that they should be included when vital rates are sex-specific. Assumptions about adult sex ratio, social structure, and mating system have been shown to affect estimates of extinction risk and projections of population dynamics. We discuss about when and how to apply two-sex models.
