Title: An Alexander-Pontrjagin type duality in the L2 theory of the -operator

Abstract: Hörmander's L2 estimates on the -equation on bounded pseudoconvex domains are a cornerstone of modern complex analysis. From the very beginning, attempts have been made (by Folland-Kohn, Shaw, Hörmander and others) to extend these L2 methods to appropriate classes of nonpseudoconvex domains. In this talk, we discuss an approach to the -problem on an annulus between two weakly pseudoconvex domains which is inspired by Alexander-Pontrjagin duality in topology. This is ongoing joint work with Phil Harrington of Arkansas.

Title: C^*-actions, ML-degree and various Grassmannians

Abstract: Central questions in many branches of mathematics are related to understanding the cohomology class of a graph of a Cremona transformation. One case is statistics, where the Maximum Likelihood degree of Gaussian models can be expressed exactly in this terms. I will report on work in progress with Wisniewski, where we upgrade the relevant Cremona transformation to a C^* action on a blow up of a homogeneous variety. This leads to a new computational approach towards the ML degree.
