# Events for 03/02/2020 from all calendars

## Working Seminar on Quantum Computation and Quantum Information

**Time:** 3:30PM - 4:30PM

**Location:** BLOC 506A

**Speaker:** Li Gao, TAMU MATH

**Title:** *Kitaev's Finite Group Model*

## Students Working Seminar in Number Theory

**Time:** 4:00PM - 5:00PM

**Location:** Bloc605ax

**Speaker:** Bradford Garcia, Texas A&M University

**Title:** *The Adeles over Q*

**Abstract:** In this talk, I plan to introduce the adeles over Q by first discussing the field of p-adic numbers and how we can define p-adic integration. Following this, we will build up some familiar machinery such as the Fourier transform and the Poisson summation formula, but in the language of adeles. Time permitting, we will then consider automorphic forms for the general linear group of degree 1 over the adeles.

## Spectral Theory Reading Seminar

**Time:** 4:10PM - 5:00PM

**Location:** Bloc 624

**Speaker:** James Oquinn, TAMU

**Title:** *Rotational C*-algebras and Their Representations*

**Abstract:** During this talk, I will introduce rotational C*-algebras and establish the role they play in the Choi, Elliot, and Yui paper. I will also discuss some of the theory of the representations of these C*-algebras, as well as their projections, so that their K-theory can be developed in subsequent talks.
