We use a relationship between Heegaard Floer homology and the symplectic Floer homology of surface diffeomorphisms to partially characterize knots with the same knot Floer homology as the torus knot T(2,5). We then combine this with classical results on the dynamics of surface homeomorphisms,…

LLT polynomials, originally known as ribbon functions, are a q-analogue of products of Schur polynomials. Sharing many of the same properties as Schur polynomials--they are symmetric, satisfy Cauchy identities, and can…

In this talk, we celebrate Giorgio Parisi’s 2021 Nobel Prize and come back to an important model Giorgio Parisi introduced with Marc Mezard in 1992.

The elastic manifold model is a paradigmatic…

By a theorem of Hacon–McKernan, Takayama, and Tsuji, for every n there is a constant r_n for which every smooth variety X of dimension n of general type has birational pluricanonical maps |mK_X| for m ≥ r_n.  In joint work with Burt Totaro and Chengxi Wang (…
