Title: Green's conjecture on Syzygies of Canonical Curves.
Abstract: We'll make a precise statement of Green's conjecture. We'll then
discuss commutative algebraic aspects of canonical curves: their Hilbert
series, Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity, Gorenstein property.

Title. Artin's approximation theorem and applications.
Abstract. We will indicate a proof of M. Artin's theorem on solutions
of analytic equations. Some examples of how this theorem
can be used to prove surprising results will be indicated.

Tile of the talk : Oh Captain ! My Captain ?
Theme.....as is told by a participant in a recent presentation of this
talk.....
"When I first heard about such a "show", just the very idea of it
seemed to be
intriguing to me. I immediately made up my mind to witness it, given
an opportunity. Fortunately, the opportunity came soon and almost at
my next door.
It was an engaging experience overall - the fundamental concepts of
"odd - man - out" were exemplified in front of the young eyes almost
tangibly. The enactment that followed took us right to the birthplace
of probability – the games of chance and maximizing wins. The
presentation aspect was captivating – with your throwing questions,
salvaging the confounded youngsters and a continuous stream of wits –
how lively the session was! When you declared the “game” to be over…
the magical journey was short – was possibly my only complaint !!!

Title: Plus or minus? With connections to a 1000 year old unsolved problem
Abstract: This talk will discuss the question of fixing the sign of certain
arithmetic quantities and its connection to the so called congruent number
problem - one of the oldest open problems in mathematics.

Title : Reliability Estimation in Exponential Samples
This is a study on unbiased estimation of the reliability R(t) = exp(-t
/ lambda) based on a random sample of size n from an exponential population
with unknown mean lambda where t ( > 0 ) is given. We focus on unbiased
estimation of R(t) based on
(i) Complete Sample, (ii) Failure-Truncated Sample, (iii)
Time-truncated Sample.
Time permitting, we also discuss about the problem of Prediction of
Future Observation(s) Based on Exponential Samples.
