    Given a Lie group G with Lie algebra g, and a manifold M^n of dimension n >0, what invariants determine whether there is an effective action A of G, or g, on M^n? If A exists what can be said about fixed points? Can A be analytic? If not, what can be said about its kernel? Typical results: 1. The identity component of the group of upper...

    The sequencing of the human genome and the development of new methods for acquiring biological data have changed the face of biomedical research. The use of mathematical and computational approaches is taking advantage of the availability of these data to develop new methods with the promise of improved understanding and treatment of disease. I...

    I will address questions about uniqueness of tangent maps of harmonic maps to non-positively curved metric spaces. I will also address applications to superrigidity of group representations to non-positively curved groups.

    The self-dual Yang Mills equations are equations for a connection in a principal bundle on a 4-manifold with a real structure group such as SU(2). They have been a source of immeasurable geometric, analytic and topological interest since they were introduced to the mathematics community in the l960's. It is natural to define a complex connection...
