 Description:
 Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker: Rahul Gupta.
Affiliation: University of Freiburg, Germany.
Date and Time: Wednesday 21 August, 2:45 pm  3:45 pm.

Title: Milnor $K$theory and Chow groups.
Abstract: In this talk, we shall define Milnor $K$groups and Chow groups.
We study various properties of these and also theorems relating both
groups. In particular, we talk about Bloch's formula and Totaro's map.
Towards the end, I shall state my results in this direction, which are
joint work with Prof A. Krishna.

Title: The flatearth society: conformal mapping from Claudius Ptolemy to
Louis Nirenberg.
Abstract: The problem of constructing flat representations of spherical
surfaces arises naturally in geography and astronomy while making maps. We
look at a mathematical formulation of this problem using the notion of
conformal mapping, and discuss its relation with complex analysis. After
reviewing the contributions of Gauss, Riemann, and PoincarĂ© to this
problem, we end with some glimpses of 20th century developments. This will
be an expository talk accessible to undergraduate and postgraduate
students.
