Geometric Functional Analysis and Probability SeminarRoom 155
Speaker:Sergey G. BobkovTitle:Transport bounds for empirical measuresAbstract:opens in new windowin html    pdfopens in new window

We will be discussing a Fourier-analytic approach to optimal matching between independent samples, with an elementary proof of the Ajtai-Komlos-Tusnady theorem.
The talk is based on a joint work with Michel Ledoux.

Speaker:Guillaume TaharTitle:Cantor-Bendixson rank of meromorphic differentialsAbstract:opens in new windowin html    pdfopens in new window

Meromorphic differentials define flat metrics with singularities on Riemann surfaces. Directions of geodesic segments between singularities are a closed subset of the circle. The Cantor-Bendixson rank of their set of directions is a descriptive set-theoretic measure complexity. Drawing on a previous work of David Aulicino, we prove a sharp upper bound that depends only on the genus of the underlying topological surface.
