Geometry and Model Theory Seminar 200708

Past Seminars 200304  Past Seminars 200405  Past Seminars 200506  Past Seminars 200607 
The idea of the seminar is to bring together people from the group in geometry and singularities at the University of Toronto (including Ed Bierstone, Askold Khovanskii, Grisha Mihalkin and Pierre Milman) and the model theory group at McMaster University (Bradd Hart, Deirdre Haskell, Patrick Speissegger and Matt Valeriote).
As we discovered during the programs in Algebraic Model Theory Program and the Singularity Theory and Geometry Program at the Fields Institute in 199697, geometers and model theorists have many common interests. The goal of this seminar is to further explore interactions between the areas.
Seminars will take place in the Fields Institute, Stewart Library
from 2 4 p.m.
Please subscribe to the Fields mail
list to be informed of upcoming semainrs.

3:00 p.m. Gareth Owen Jones, McMaster University Model completeness results for polynomially bounded ominimal structures I will discuss Wilkie's strategy for proving model completeness results, and show how it can lead to some new results generalizing Gabrielov's theorem of the complement.

Thursday, October 11, 2007, 2:00 
3:00 p.m., Rasul Shafikov, University of Western Ontario Analytic Geometry questions in Complex Analysis I will discuss some questions related to geometry of real and complex analytic sets that naturally appear in the theory of holomorphic and CR mappings.

4:30 p.m., Janusz Adamus, University of Western Ontario Vertical components and local geometry of analytic mappings Vertical components constitute a new and powerful tool in the study of the local geometry of complex analytic mappings. We will explain how one can exploit them to establish a certain level of algebraic control over the geometric complexity of a morphism.
