Holomorphy of L-functions and distribution of primes

The analytic properties of L-functions have been one of the central topics in number theory as they have many arithmetic applications. For example, the distribution of prime numbers has a deep connection with the properties of the Riemann zeta function. In general, for any number field, there are primes and L-functions of similar nature. In this talk, we shall discuss the holomorphy of such L-functions and its applications to the distributions of the associated primes.

Knot Floer homology and fibered knots

Abstract: We prove that the knot Floer homology of a fibered knot is nontrivial in its next-to-top Alexander grading. Immediate applications include a new proof that L-space knots prime and a classification of knots 3-manifolds with rank 3 knot Floer homology. We will also discuss a numerical refinement of the Ozsvath-Szabo contact invariant. This is joint work with John Baldwin.

A discontinuous Galerkin finite element method for Hamilton Jacobi Bellman equations on piecewise curved domains

Abstract: We introduce a discontinuous Galerkin finite element method (DGFEM) for Hamilton Jacobi Bellman equations on piecewise curved domains, and prove that the method is consistent, stable, and produces optimal convergence rates. Upon utilising a long standing result due to N. Krylov, we may characterise the Monge Ampere equation as a HJB equation; in two dimensions, this HJB equation can be characterised further as uniformly elliptic HJB equation, allowing for the application of the DGFEM.
