Professor Cardetti Receives Grant to Study Mental Health and Math Learning in Children
Professor Fabiana Cardetti has been awarded a CLAS grant in collaboration with Professor Fumiko Hoeft (Professor of Neuroscience, Director of BIRC) to conduct the interdisciplinary research study The influence of mental health and socioeconomic disparities on children with learning disabilities – a math intervention study. The funds help provide equitable educational opportunities in reading and […]

onlineUntil the late 1980's, the only examples of CMC surfaces in
Euclidean space were the sphere, the Wente torus, and the surfaces of Delaunay. In 1990, Kapouleas developed a gluing construction for CMC surfaces that produced infinitely many new examples. We discuss a generalized gluing construction for CMC hypersurfaces that builds on and extends the ideas of Kapouleas. This work is joint with Kapouleas.Contact Information: zhongshan.an@uconn.edu

Galois Theory Of Rational Maps

Storrs Campus
Online on WebExLet \(f:\mathbb P^1_K\to\mathbb P^1_K\) be a rational map defined over a number field \(K\). The Galois theory of the iterates \(f^n=f\circ\ldots\circ f\) has applications both in number theory and in arithmetic dynamics. In this talk, we will discuss the various Galois groups attached to the iterates of \(f\), namely arithmetic and geometric monodromy groups and Arboreal Galois representations. While providing a survey of recent results on the subject, we will also talk about joint work with I. Bouw and V. Karemaker on Dynamical Belyi maps.

Equilibrium Pricing of Longevity Bonds
Traian Pirvu (McMaster University)Wednesday, April 21st, 2021
05:00 PM  06:00 PM
Storrs Campus
onlineWe consider a partial equilibrium model for pricing longevity linked bonds in a model with stochastic mortality intensity that affects the income of economic agents. The agents trade in a risky financial security and a longevity linked bond as to maximize their utilities. Agent’s risk preferences are of monetary type and are described by BSDEs (backward stochastic differential equations). The endogenous equilibrium bond price is characterized by a BSDE. We prove that the longevity bond completes the market. In a realistic setting with two agents in a transaction, numerical experiments confirm the expected intuition of price dependence on model parameters. This is joint work with Petar Jevtic and Minsuk Kwak.Contact Information: Oleksii Mostovyi

Panel DiscussionWednesday, April 21st, 2021
05:45 PM  06:35 PM
Storrs Campus
OnlineIf you are considering graduate school in mathematics or related areas after college, come to this panel discussion where you will hear from members of the UConn math department about their experiences planning for and applying to graduate school. The discussion will then be opened to answer your questions. A packet containing a suggested reading list and some general advice will be provided too.
