Title: Directional spreading of a viscous droplet on a conical fiber
I will begin with a non-technical introduction to curvature of surfaces and then move on to the Uniformization Theorem which says that any Riemann surface can be deformed in a conformal way (i.e. preserving angles) into a Riemann surface of constant curvature. This theorem, which was proved in 1907, can be seen as the one-dimensional case of a problem in complex geometry going back to the 1930’s to determine which complex manifolds admits Kähler-Einstein metrics. Using the one-dimensional case as illustration, I will talk about an important milestone reached in 2013 when a conjecture (the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture) relating existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics on projective manifolds to algebraic properties of the manifold was verified. I will end by talking about some more recent developments and some open problems in the field.

The 4th Scandinavian Gathering Around Remarkable Discrete Mathematics
Professor Mogens Steffensen, Copenhagen University
Summer school and workshop at University of Oslo
The purpose of the conference is to bring together leading researchers and students within stochastic analysis and applications, to discuss new results and research challenges, with emphasis on stochastic control and information, as well as stochastic analysis for random fields with applications to risk models in finance, biology, insurance and physics.
Beamforming has long been a topic for physicists and signal processing researchers. By this talk, Tobas Dahl aims to open up the principles of beamforming for researchers with backgrounds from multiple quantitative disciplines; partial differential equations, statistics, machine learning and data analysis, chemometrics, psychometrics, cybernetics and others who feel they could understand the basics without taking on a (new) master's degree in physics or digital signal processing.
The Clay Mathematics Institute awards $1 million to anyone who proves (or disproves) the existence of smooth solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations . In this lecture we will give a non-technical introduction to the Navier-Stokes equations and some related partial differential equations. I will give a brief overview of some of the partial results available, and try to explain why this is a difficult problem.
The talk should be accessible to math students in their third year and up.
NB! Coffee/Tea/Biscuits from 14.00.
