Hora: 12:00, cafè; 12:20, xerrada
Lloc: Aula B1 Facultat de Matemàtiques de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Idioma: Anglès

Títol: Elliptic curves over \mathbb{Q} and the Birch and Swinnerton–Dyer conjecture
Resum: An elliptic curve E over \mathbb{Q} is a nonsingular cubic of equation

y^2=x^3+Ax+B,

with A, B \in \mathbb{Z}. Let E(\mathbb{Q}) the set of points on E having rational coordinates. We will see how to define a group law + on E(\mathbb{Q}). By Mordell-Weil Theorem, (E(\mathbb{Q}),+) is a finitely generated abeliangroup. The ”size”of the free part of E(\mathbb{Q}) is called the algebraic rank of E over \mathbb{Q}. The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture saysthat one should recover this algebraic rank computing an analyticinvariant, called theanalytic rank of E over \mathbb{Q}.

SIMBa: Sampling, Interpolation and Fekete Points

SIBMa

El proper dimecres, 5 de desembre, se celebrarà una nova xerrada del Seminari Informal de Matemàtiques de Barcelona (SIMBa).

Speaker: Carlos Cruz
Universitat: Universitat de Barcelona

Data: Dimecres, 5 de desembre de 2018
Hora: 12:00, cafè; 12:20, xerrada
Lloc: Aula B1 Facultat de Matemàtiques de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Idioma: Castellà

Títol: Sampling, Interpolation and Fekete Points
Resum: In this talk, we will explain a characterization of sampling or interpolating arrays in the space of polynomials \mathcal{P}_k(\mathbb{C}). This allows to understand, in a simple model, this problem in a more general case. Moreover, the aim of this talk is to introduce some interesting objects like the Fekete points. These points are so interesting and are an example of sampling and interpolating arrays.

SIMBa: The escape trichotomy for singularly perturbed polynomials

SIBMa

El proper dimecres, 21 de novembre, se celebrarà una nova xerrada del Seminari Informal de Matemàtiques de Barcelona (SIMBa).

Speaker: Dan Alexandru Paraschiv
Universitat: Universitat de Barcelona

Data: Dimecres, 21 de novembre de 2018
Hora: 12:00, cafè; 12:20, xerrada
Lloc: Aula B1 Facultat de Matemàtiques de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Idioma: English

Títol: The escape trichotomy for singularly perturbed polynomials
Resum: Holomorphic dynamics studies the iteration of holomorphic functions over different spaces.
The dichotomy for quadratic polynomials, which generates the Mandelbrot set, is one of the fundamental results.
Devaney, Look and Uminsky have managed to extend this result to the family of singularly perturbed polynomials, that is: F_{\lambda}(z)=z^{n}+\frac{\lambda}{z^d}, where \lambda \in \mathbb{C}, z \in \hat{\mathbb{C}},n, d \in \mathbb{N^*} and d \geq 2.
The scape trichotomy shows that, according to the position of the critical values of the map, there exist 3 possible kinds of Julia sets: Cantor sets, Cantor sets of quasicircles and Sierpinski curves. For a clear understanding of the result, there are first going to be presented several basic notions and results from holomorphic dynamics.

SIMBa: Osculating spaces and Lefschetz properties

SIBMa

El proper dimecres, 14 de novembre, se celebrarà una nova xerrada del Seminari Informal de Matemàtiques de Barcelona (SIMBa).

Speaker: Martí Salat Moltó
Universitat: Universitat de Barcelona

Data: Dimecres, 14 de novembre de 2018
Hora: 13:00, cafè; 13:20, xerrada
Lloc: Aula B1 Facultat de Matemàtiques de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Idioma: Castellà

Títol: Osculating spaces and Lefschetz properties
Resum: Let X \in \mathbb{P}^N be an algebraic variety. The sth osculating space of X at a point p \in X is the vector space T_{p}^{(s)}X spanned by all the sth partial derivatives of a local parametrization of X at p. Hence it can be seen as a natural generalization of the well-known notion of tangent space. It is a wide and longstanding problem to study and classify varieties whose osculating space is defective (i.e. it does not reach the maximal dimension).
In the first part of this talk we will recall the notion of osculating space and we will see some examples. In the second part we will explore the connection made by Mezzetti, Ottaviani and Miró-Roig. This connection explains why some varieties have a defective osculating space by means of the –a priori unrelated notion– of the weak Lefschetz property. This result motivates the definition of Togliatti systems. Finally, if the time allows us to do so, we will give an insight to the classification problem of Togliatti systems using combinatorial methods of Toric varieties.

SIMBa: An Introduction to post-quantum cryptography

SIBMa

El proper dimecres, 24 d’octubre, se celebrarà una nova xerrada del Seminari Informal de Matemàtiques de Barcelona (SIMBa).

Speaker: Sergi Rovira Cisterna
Universitat: Universitat de Barcelona

Data: Dimecres, 24 d’octubre de 2018
Hora: 12:00, cafè; 12:20, xerrada
Lloc: Aula B1 Facultat de Matemàtiques de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Idioma: Anglès

Títol: An Introduction to post-quantum cryptography
Resum: Quantum Computers exploit quantum mechanical phenomena to solve mathematical problems considered difficult or intractable for conventional computers. Ongoing advances in physics point towards the eventual construction of large-scale quantum computers. If these computers are ever build, this would compromise the confidentiality and integrity of our current digital communications.
Post-Quantum Cryptography studies cryptosystems that can be implemented in a classical computer but for which no efficient cryptanalytic technique using either classical or quantum computers is known.
The goal of this talk is to give a broad overview of the field of Post-Quantum Cryptography and present one cryptosystem believed to be post-quantum. All the necessary notions of classical cryptography will be introduced during the talk.

SIMBa: Invariant Manifolds near L1 and L2 in the Planar Restricted Three-Body Problem

SIBMa

El proper diemcres, 17 d’octubre, se celebrarà una nova xerrada del Seminari Informal de Matemàtiques de Barcelona (SIMBa).

Speaker: Gladston Duarte Ferreira
Universitat: Universitat de Barcelona

Data: Dimecres, 17 d’octubre de 2018
Hora: 12:00, cafè; 12:20, xerrada
Lloc: Aula T1 Facultat de Matemàtiques de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Idioma: Castellà

Títol: Invariant Manifolds near L1 and L2 in the Planar Restricted Three-Body Problem
Resum: In this work we investigate the connections between the stable and unstable manifolds of periodic orbits around the points L1 and L2 of the Restricted Three-Body Problem (RTBP). In the Planar Circular RTBP (PCRTBP) we can see, that there is a connection of these manifolds on the phase space of this problem, which means that there is a mechanism of an orbit that goes outside the orbit of one primary (for instance, that describes an orbit close to an ellipse with greater semi-major axis), to go through it and start to describe an orbit inside of it (close to an ellipse with smaller semimajor axis) and/or vice-versa; in other words, this mechanism is a bridge connecting orbits outside with orbits inside. Using some
computer algebra tools we start by computing the normal forms around L1 and L2 to describe periodic orbits around each of these points. After that, with the same tools, we focus on the computation of the stable and unstable manifolds of these orbits and on the searching for connections between them. Time permitting, it will be presented some differences between the PCRTBP and the PERTBP (the E letter standing for ’Elliptic’). Which are the features and the objects in this new problem and what could be used from the PCRTBP what could not.

SIMBa: Lorenz dynamics prevail under compressibility

Títol: Lorenz dynamics prevail under compressibility
Resum: In the present talk we will make the route that goes from the fundamental equations of Fluid Mechanics (continuity equation, Navier-Stokes equations and the conservation of energy law) to the Lorenz equations. Furthermore, knowing the process that led Edward N. Lorenz, in his studies on convection phenomena in the upper layers of the atmosphere, to the discovery in 1963 of the chaotic dynamics of the three-dimensional system it is possible to propose new and consistent problems, on the one hand, in the modi cation of the approximations made, and on the other hand, in the mathematical study of other more complex possibilities, such as the obtaining of new decoupled di erential equation systems, with a larger number of state variables. Hereafter, we set out to reconstruct the process that led to Lorenz system also setting the basis for the development of these other approaches.  Moreover, in relation to the modi cation of the approximations made, we have advanced in the process of obtaining the Lorenz-type equations in the case in which the coecient of isothermal compressibility is not neglected.
