Title: Recent advances in high order entropy stable discontinuous Galerkin methods

Abstract: High order methods are known to be unstable when applied to nonlinear conservation laws whose solutions exhibit shocks and turbulence. These methods have traditionally required additional filtering, limiting, or artificial viscosity to avoid solution blow up. Entropy stable schemes address this instability by ensuring that physically relevant solutions satisfy a semi-discrete entropy inequality independently of numerical resolution. In this talk, we will review the construction entropy stable discontinuous Galerkin methods and discuss recent work on positivity preservation, reduced order modeling, and robustness under-resolved simulations.

Title: Property (T) for Aut(F_n)

Abstract: I will present the proof that Aut(F_n), the automorphism group of the free group on n generators, has Kazhdan's property (T) for n at least 5. This is based on a joint work with Marek Kaluba, Dawid Kielak and Taka Ozawa.
