Seymour''s Second Neighborhood Conjecture from a Different Perspective

Seymour''s Second Neighborhood Conjecture states that every orientation of every simple graph has at least one vertex $v$ such that the number of vertices of out-distance 2 from $v$ is at least as large as the number of vertices of out-distance 1 from it. We present an alternative statement of the conjecture in the language of linear algebra.

The local type of difference equations

D-modules allow us to study differential equations through the lens of algebraic geometry. They are widely studied and have been shown to be full of structure. In contrast, the case of difference equations is lacking some of the most basic constructions. We focus on the following question: D-modules have a clear notion of what it means to restrict to a (formal) neighborhood of a point, namely extension of scalars to a power series ring. However, what does it mean to restrict a difference equation to a neighborhood of a point? I will give an answer which encompasses the intuitive notions of a "zero" and a "pole" of a difference equation, but further it is consistent in two more ways. First of all, we can show that restricting a difference equation to a point and to its complement is enough to recover the difference equation. Secondly, there exists a local Mellin transform analogous to the local Fourier transform. The local Fourier transform describes singularities of a D-module on the affine line in terms of the singularities of its Fourier transform. Similarly, the Mellin transform is an equivalence between D-modules on the punctured affine line and difference modules on the line, and we can relate singularities on both sides via this local Mellin transform. I will also talk about how to apply the same ideas to other kinds of difference equations, such as elliptic equations, which generalize difference and differential equations at once.

One Health: Connecting Humans, Animals and the Environment

"One Health" is a multidisciplinary approach to improving the health of people, animals and the environment. Environmental, wildlife, domestic animal, and human health fall under the One Health concept. Mathematical models of infectious diseases involving animals, environmental features, and humans will be presented. These models can suggest management policies and predict disease spread, and examples including La Crosse virus and Zika virus will be discussed. (Reception after the talk)
