Monteith 214The study of elliptic curves is a deep and rich field of research, whose most famous application is to the proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem. In this talk, we will discuss several problems that can be formulated in terms of elliptic curves, including Fermat’s Last Theorem. We will then discuss how the theory of elliptic curves helps us to solve these problems, and many others.
Note: Free refreshments. The talk starts at 5:40.Contact Information: Keith Conrad (kconrad@math.uconn.edu)

Monteith 214Abstract: In this talk I will make an overview of some recent advances in applying differential and generalized geometry to exhibiting intrinsic properties of equations describing mechanical systems. Main examples are given by systems with constraints and coupled systems. From the geometric point of view, they correspond to socalled (almost) Dirac structures: those generalize simultaneously symplectic and Poisson manifolds. We will also address the question in the other direction: given a Dirac structure, how to define meaningful dynamics on it. I will conclude by mentioning some consequences of these results for construction of geometric integrators  numerical methods preserving the geometric structure of the equations and qualitative properties of respective mechanical systems.

MONT 214The UDL (Universal Design for Learning) Framework is used to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all of the diverse learners that we encounter in our classes. In this talk, the fundamentals of this framework will be introduced along with an example of how it was implemented to reimagine MATH 3710(Introduction to Mathematical Modeling) to create a modular, inquirybased course structure here at UConn. The basic process of research in math education will also be highlighted.Contact Information: rachel.bailey@uconn.edu
