Gjesteforelesninger, seminarer og konferanser
Andrea Riebler ( Dept. of math., NTNU) gives a seminar in room 107, 1st floor N.H. Abels House at 14:15 December 2nd: Projecting the future burden of cancer: Bayesian APC analysis made simple.
Welcome to the SECOND conference on Stochastics of Environmental and Financial Economics. The conference will bring together leading researchers in the fields of stochastic analysis and finance to discuss recent developments and challenges with an edge towards energy, environmental and financial markets.
The conference is also a celebration of professor Bernt Øksendal's 70th anniversary. On Thursday April 23 the program of the conference will mark this big event with a selected list of speakers.
I will discuss joint work in progress with David Gepner, computing the ring of endomorphisms of the equivariant motivic sphere spectrum, for a finite group. The result is a combination of the endomorphism ring of the equivariant topological sphere spectrum (which equals the Burnside ring by a result of Segal) and that of the motivic sphere spectrum (which equals the Grothendieck-Witt ring of quadratic forms by a result of Morel). This computation is a corollary of a tom Dieck style splitting for certain equivariant motivic homotopy groups.
Martijn Caspers (Münster) will give a talk with title: The Haagerup property for arbitrary von Neumann algebras
Abstract: The Haagerup property is an approximation property for both groups and operator algebras that has important applications in for example the Baum-Connes conjecture or von Neumann algebra theory. In this talk we show that the Haagerup property is an intrinsic invariant of an arbitrary von Neumann algebra. We also discuss stability properties of the Haagerup property under constructions as free products, graph products and crossed products. Finally we discuss alternative characterizations in terms of the existence of suitable quadratic forms.
Jan Fredrik Bjørnstad (Statistics Norway and Dept. of Math.,UiO) gives a seminar in room 107, 1st floor N.H. Abels House at 14:15 November 18th: Survey sampling the way I see it.
This is a work we had done jointly with Garkusha (after Voevodsky) arXiv:1409.4372. Using the machinery of framed sheaves developed by Voevodsky, a triangulated category of framed motives is introduced and studied. To any smooth algebraic variety X in Sm/k, the framed motive M_fr(X) is associated in that category . Also, for any smooth scheme X in Sm/k an explicit quasi-fibrant motivic replacement of its suspension P1-spectrum is given. Moreover, it is shown that the bispectrum (M_fr(X),M_fr(X)(1),M_fr(X)(2), ... ), each term of which is a twisted framed motive of X, has motivic homotopy type of the suspension bispectrum of X. We also construct a compactly generated triangulated category of framed bispectra SH_fr(k) and show that it reconstructs the Morel-Voevodsky category SH(k). As a topological application, it is proved that the framed motive M_fr(pt)(pt) of the point pt = Speck evaluated at pt is a quasi-fibrant model of the classical sphere spectrum whenever the base field k is algebraically closed of characteristic zero.
The goal of this talk is to present some recent computations of the Picard groups of several spectra of topological modular forms. The first part of the talk will introduce the toolbox, which consists of descent theory and a technical lemma allowing us to compare stable and unstable information in spectral sequences. This is joint work with Akhil Mathew.

Weak approximation of stochastic differential equations by a multilevel Monte Carlo method using mean square adaptive numerical integration
Tore Selland Kleppe (University of Stavanger) gives a seminar in room 107, 1st floor N.H. Abels House at 14:15 November 11th: Bandwidth Selection In Pre-Smoothed Particle Filters
Marco Matassa (UiO) will give a talk with title: Dirac Operators on Quantum Flag Manifolds
Abstract: I will review the paper "Dirac Operators on Quantum Flag Manifolds" by Ulrich Krähmer. The aim is to define Dirac operators on quantized irreducible flag manifolds. These will yield Hilbert space realizations of some distinguished covariant first-order differential calculi.
Geir Ellingsrud, UiO, gives the Seminar in Algebra and Algebraic Geometry:
Abelian varieties X
Jeg vil definere Singerkonstruksjonen R_+(M) og gjennomføre Adams-Gunawardena-Millers bevis av Lins teorem.
The two-day workshop on "Stochastics and Risk for Energy Markets" will consist of an intensive course on energy markets provided by Professor Rudiger Kiesel from University of Essen-Duisburg, as well as several invited talks. The workshop aims at bringing together practitioners from the energy and finance industry with researchers from academia.
Daniel Larsson, Høgskolen i Buskerud og Vestfold, gives the Seminar in Algebra and Algebraic Geometry:
Abelian varieties IX
Jeg vil snakke om de endelige underalgebraene A(n) i Steenrodalgebraen, analysere A(n)-modulstrukturen til den kontinuerlige kohomologien til Tatekonstruksjonen, og skissere Lin-Davis-Mahowald-Adams' bevis av Lins teorem.
