Title: Separated and proper morphisms for algebraic stacks.

Abstract: We will begin by revisiting the valuative criteria for universal closedness and separateness for morphisms between schemes. This will be followed by interesting elementary examples that illustrate why these criteria do not directly apply to algebraic spaces and algebraic stacks. We will end with the modified criteria that apply to algebraic spaces and algebraic stacks.

Title: Mapping tori in geometric group theory.

Abstract: In this talk, I will provide a gentle introduction to 
geometric group theory using the concept of mapping tori. Using pictures 
and examples, I will introduce the relevant topics and give a glimpse of 
some of the spectacular progress made by stalwarts like Bill Thurston. 
Additionally, I will mention some recent progress in the field, along 
with my forays.

This talk is a background lecture especially aimed at graduate students 
for the talk  Suraj Krishna will give the following Tuesday.

Commutative Algebra Seminar

Title:  Epsilon multiplicity in two-dimensional standard  graded algebras

Abstract: The notion of epsilon multiplicity, a generalization of the Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity, was introduced by B. Ulrich and J. Validashti to detect the integral dependence of arbitrary ideals. This invariant is difficult to handle as there are examples where it can be irrational and the epsilon function is very far from being polynomial-like. Let $A$ be a standard graded normal domain of dimension two over a field with the unique homogeneous maximal ideal $m$. Let $I$ be a homogeneous ideal in $A$. Our objective is to show that the epsilon multiplicity of $I$ is a rational number.

Title: Some well-known Irreducibility Criteria for polynomials over rationals and their generalizations

Abstract: We will review the classical irreducibility criteria of Eisenstein, Schoenemann, and Dumas, and then discuss their extensions using Newton polygons and the theory of valuations. We shall also present recently proved generalizations of the well-known

results of Schur as well as of Filaseta and Trifonov regarding the irreducibility of the truncated exponential polynomial and the Bessel polynomial. This talk is partly based on joint work with Ankita Jindal, Bablesh Jhorar, and Sanjeev Kumar.
