Vortex sheets in domains with boundary

In this talk we consider the vanishing viscosity problem for incompressible fluid flow in a smooth, bounded domain. We are particularly concerned with the shear layer occurring near the boundary, a phenomenon which we explore in a few examples of flows with symmetry.

Subconvex equidistribution of cusp forms

Arithmetic quantum chaos concerns the limiting behavior of a sequence of automorphic forms on spaces such as the modular surface. It is now known in many cases (by work of Lindenstrauss, Holowinsky, Soundararajan and others) that the mass distributions of such forms equidistribute as the parameters tend off to infinity.

Princeton-Rider Workshop On the Homotopy Theory of Polyhedral Products

Cartesian products have embedded within them certain natural subsets which are indexed by combinatorial information. The geometric characterization of these subspaces, known now as polyhedral products, has  application in toric geometry and topology, combinatorics, geometric group theory, number theory, homotopy theory and arachnid mechanisms.

Title: Measurably entire functions and their growth

Let (X,B,P) be a standard probability space. Let T:C\rightarrow PPT(X) be a free action of the complex plane on the space (X,B,P). We say that the function F:X\rightarrow C is measurably entire if it is measurable and for P-a.e x the function F_x(z):=F(T_zx) is entire.
