Nicolai Stammeier (Oslo) will give a talk with title: The inner structure of boundary quotients of right LCM semigroups
Abstract: In joint work with Roberto Conti, Stefano Rossi, and Valeriano Aiello, we use semidirect products built from algebraic dynamical systems to model right LCM semigroups to study various structural aspects in connection with a selection of distinguished subalgebras of the associated boundary quotients. Our two guiding examples are integral dynamics as considered in work of Barlak - Omland - Stammeier, and exact injective group endomorphisms of discrete abelian groups with finite cokernel as studied by Cuntz and Vershik.
Eric Schaanning (Norges Bank) gives a lecture with the title: Interbank contagion and systemic risk: How robust are estimates?

Continuous Hydrodynamic Separation and Concentration of Particles according to Size by use of the Trilobite Technology
M.Sc. Endre Joachim Mossige ved Matematisk institutt avholder prøveforelesning over oppgitt emne: "The physics behind a perfectly boiled egg".
Adam Sørensen (UiO) will give a talk with title: C*-stable groups.
Abstract: In this talk we will look at when group C*-algebra have stable relations, which loosely speaking means that any almost representation of the group in a C*-algebra will be close to an exact representation. A particularly interesting case is if we assume the C*-algebra is finite dimensional. I will mostly discuss a collection of examples. The talk is based on ongoing joint work with Søren Eilers and Tatiana Shulman.
The seminar takes place in the meeting room, floor 9 of Ole Johan Dahls hus.
The room has been reserved Thursdays 10.15 - 12.00 from August 31 to November 30.
The program is subject to changes.

The Abel symposium 2017
On 4-6 July 2017, the second conference on the mathematics of energy markets will take place at the Wolfgang Pauli Institute (WPI) in Vienna, Austria. The conference is an activity within the thematic program "Mathematics for Risk in Finance and Energy" at the WPI.
We welcome participants from academia and industry to take part in this event.
A pre-conference intensive course will be organized on Monday July 3. The course leader will be Professor Almut Veraart, who will give a course on Ambit stochastics with applications to commodity markets. See here for more details on the intensive course.

Den 14. juni 2017 er det 100 år siden Atle Selberg ble født. Han regnes som en av de fremste tallteoretikerne i verden gjennom tidene og mottok bl.a. Fieldsmedaljen i 1950 og Wolfprisen i 1986. Han hadde hele sin studietid ved UiO, der han tok doktorgraden i 1942.
Matematisk Institutt ved UiO vil markere jubileet på selve dagen den 14. juni.
