The study of vector bundles on algebraic varieties is a classical topic at the intersection of geometry and commutative algebra. In its algebraic form it is the study of finitely generated projective modules over commutative rings. There are many longstanding conjectures and open questions about algebraic vector bundles, such as: is every...

In this talk we develop iterability theory for a single measure, give an inner model theoretic representation of 0sharp, and show how this representation leads to nontrivial embedding of L into L.

I will discuss the important phenomenon in mathematics that the solution to a question may reach out to concepts of complexity significantly higher than concepts needed for the formulation of the question.

In the first half of the talk, we introduce a new quasilocal mass with interesting properties along null flows off of a 2sphere in spacetime or, equivalently, foliations of a null cone. We also show how certain, fairly generic, convexity assumptions on the null cone allows for a proof of the Penrose Conjecture. On the Black Hole Horizon, we find...

The talk will be devoted to the study of finitely generated groups acting on the circle. We will start with joint results with A. Navas and B. Deroin: if such an action by analytic diffeomorphisms admits a Cantor minimal set, then this set is of Lebesgue measure zero, and if such an action by free group of analytic...

The self organization of phospholipids into membranes is fundamental to the origin of life, allowing for protection of internal structure while necessitating machinery to open pores. Evolutionary pressure has designed a myriad of controls in the guise of surface proteins that adjust the entropy of the lipidsolvent interactions...
