We will present some recent progress on two problems in minimal surface theory posed by S. T. Yau in 1982. In particular, we will discuss the existence of infinitely many closed minimal hypersurfaces in a closed Riemannian manifold and the existence of four closed minimal two-spheres in a Riemannian three-sphere.

Monteith 313Abstract: We will discuss the insulated conductivity problem with closely spaced insulators embedded in a homogeneous matrix where the current-electric field relation is the power law $J = |E|^E$ . The electric field may blow up as the distance between insulators approaches zero. We will quantitatively analyze the concentration of the electric field $E$ between the inclusions. We will also talk about the corresponding perfect conductivity problem if time permits. Joint work with Hongjie Dong (Brown University) and Zhuolun Yang (Brown University).

The COVID-19 pandemic still poses a continuous threat due to the emergence of multiple strains. Insights into the virus infection dynamics within a host and virus transmission dynamics between hosts are essential for designing effective control strategies. In the first part of this talk, I will present mathematical models describing how the virus spreads within a single host. In particular, we implement viral load data from ferrets (animal models) to estimate critical parameters related to SARS CoV-2 infection and formulate the risk of transmission and generation time distribution. In the second part, I will discuss between-hosts models for the transmission dynamics of COVID-19 in a community. We apply our models to the unique datasets from Nepal, which shares open borders with India, one of the most COVID-19-impacted countries in the world. I will demonstrate how our data-driven models can provide vital information for developing control strategies for both within-host and between-host scales.
