Omri Tal (MPI MIS, Leipzig): Information Theory in Biology: Past and Recent Results
Feb 27 @ 15:00 – 16:30

There have been many attempts at applying ideas and methods from Information Theory in the biosciences, ever since Shannon first laid out the his theory of communication in engineering, to most recent times in an accelerated swing. Much of this has concerned modeling bio-communication, evolutionary processes in uncertain conditions, learning mechanisms in organisms and new approaches of analysis of high-throughput genetic data. This talk will be an informal review of both the very early reactions by biologists and some of the more recent interesting and sometimes controversial claims and results.

Avinash Kulkarni (Simon Fraser University, Burnaby): The arithmetic of uniquely trigonal genus 4 curves
Mrz 1 @ 10:00 – 11:00

Number fields, which are finite field extensions of the field of rational numbers, are fundamental objects of study in number theory. One of the most important invariants of a number field is the class group, which measures how close the ring of integers of that number field is to being a unique factorization domain. Despite their importance, class groups remain mysterious objects in number theory. This talk will demonstrate how the titular family of curves can be used to construct cubic number fields with interesting class groups.
Background: The talk is designed for a general level mathematics colloquium. Some algebraic number theory or algebraic geometry is useful, but not necessary.
