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.

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.

Title: Eisenstein series and some variants on Loop Groups

Abstract: We will first review some aspects of the reduction theory for loop groups studied by Howard Garland in the 1970s. Following this, we explain how features of the Siegel domains in this setting essentially force certain cuspidal Eisenstein series on loop groups to be entire functions, in stark contrast to the finite-dimensional situation.

Switching to the case of function fields, we then introduce, following ideas of Braverman and Kazhdan, new “regularized” cuspidal Eisenstein series for loop groups. These series are no longer entire and their Fourier coefficients encode (finite-dimensional) automorphic L-functions that have previously remained inaccessible by the standard Langlands-Shahidi method.

Title: Inspecting discrepancy between multivariate distributions using half-space depth

Abstract: In this talk, we inspect whether a multivariate distribution is different from a specified distribution or not AND two multivariate distributions are equal or not. In the course of this study, a graphical toolkit using well-known half-spaced depth is proposed, which is a two-dimensional plot, regardless of the dimension of the data, and it is even useful in comparing high-dimensional distributions. The simple interpretability of the proposed graphical toolkit motivates us to formulate test statistics to carry out the corresponding testing of hypothesis problems. It is established that the proposed tests are consistent, and the asymptotic distributions of the test statistics under contiguous/local alternatives are derived, which enables us to compute the asymptotic power of these tests. Furthermore, it is observed that the computations associated with the proposed tests are unburdensome. Besides, these tests perform better than many other tests available in the literature when data are generated from various distributions such as heavy-tailed distributions, which indicates that the proposed methodology is robust as well. Finally, the usefulness of the proposed graphical toolkit and tests is shown on two benchmark real data sets. This is a joint work with Pratim Guha Niyogi (Johns Hopkins University, USA).

Abstract: We study the tetrablock, a domain in \mathbb{C}^3 given by\mathbb{E}=\left\{\left(x_1,x_2,x_3\right) \in \mathbb{C}^3 : \ 1-x_1 z-x_2 w+x_3 zw \neq 0 \ \ \text{for} \ \ |z| \leq 1,|w| \leq 1\right\}.\]The tetrablock is related to a certain function-theoretic problem that arises in control engineering. We discuss several characterizations for the elements in$\mathbb{E}$ and in its closure. We present a set of necessary and sufficient conditions that provide a Schwarz lemma for $\mathbb{E}$. We also describe the automorphism group of $\mathbb{E}$.
