EMaCs lecture by Gunther Cornelissen9-11-2011 (wednesday)
On Wednesday November 9 Gunther Cornelissen (UU) will speak in the EMaCs (Eindhoven Mathematics Colloquiums). Title: Number Theory and Physics, an eternal rusty braid. Time: 16:00-17:00. Place: DIAMANT lecture room (Main Building (HG) 9.41). There will be drinks after the talk.Back to calendar
Abstract: I will describe joint work with Matilde Marcolli in which we apply ideas from quantum statistical mechanics and dynamical systems to solve the number theoretical analogue of the problem "how to hear the shape of a drum".
Mathematics cluster DIAMANT
3 DIAMANT PhD positions awarded19-12-2017
NWO, following a shortlist provided by the DIAMANT board, has decided to award 3 PhD positions to young DIAMANT members: Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft), Jan Steffen Müller (RUG) and Arno Kret (UvA).
DIAMANT funding continued 19-12-2017
The funding of all four mathematics clusters has been continued by NWO. For the coming two years 85 kE will be available in each cluster.
NWO Call for Tenure Track positions22-7-2016
NWO has opened a call for tenure track positions. Proposals for these positions, which include one PhD position for each tenure track position, can be submitted directly to NWO by professors from the 4 mathematics clusters, including Diamant. Diamant professors are warmly encouraged to submit proposals. Read more.
Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound 25-5-2016
A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n. Read more in Terence Tao's blog about these developments.
