Geometry Seminar

iCal  iCal

Time: 3:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: BLOC 628

Speaker: Guangbo Xu, Texas A&M University

Title: Introduction to Floer homology

Abstract: In this talk, after reviewing the classical finite dimensional Morse theory, I will give a short introduction to various versions of Floer homology theories, for example, Lagrangian intersection Floer homology in symplectic geometry and instanton Floer homology in gauge theory. I will also explain the conceptual picture of the celebrated Atiyah-Floer conjecture. Non-experts, especially graduate students are welcome.

Description:

Teaching Freshman Mathematics Non-Traditionally – Making it Work

Abstract: Rapidly evolving technology has created more options than ever before for teaching in a non-traditional manner. Using new technological innovations, I have taught Math 141 and Math 140 in a variety of formats including online with in-person exams, flipped/hybrid, and pure online in the past five years. I will discuss what successes and improvements have evolved over this time period and give recommendations on how to expand the departments on-line course offerings.
