Title: On the similarity problem for locally compact quantum groups

Abstract: The celebrated work of Day and Dixmier in 1950 states that, for an amenable locally compact group G, every bounded Hilbert space representation of the convolution algebra L1(G) is automatically similar to a *-representation. This property has been explored within the framework of locally compact quantum groups since 2009. The aim of this talk is to explain the current status of this problem and why the property does not hold for a large class of non-Kac type compact quantum groups.

Title: Introduction to the gap labeling conjecture and dry Ten Martini Problem

Abstract: In this talk, I will first introduce two equivalent formulations of the gap labeling conjecture: K-Theory and dynamical system. Then I will introduce the (dry) Ten Martini Problem.

Title: REU Informational Session

Abstract: The semester is just starting, but some of you may already be thinking about your summer plans. One opportunity for math majors/minors is to participate in a summer Mathematics REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates). There are many REU programs around the country, involving different research topics, style, and financial support (most people do an REU at a place other than their home university). Most programs have application deadlines in early February. If you want advice on how to choose a good program, how to apply, what an REU might involve, etc., come to the meeting and talk to the students who went through REUs, and faculty who organized them. If you want to come prepared with good questions, look at some possibilities on our web page
