Victor Guillemin will be visiting FRiday and will give a joint Colloquium/Geometry Seminar. This will be at 4 in 1360 East Hall. Title and abstract are below. There geometry seminar will NOT be meeting in addition at 3 in room 3866 EH.
Sorry for the confusion. The Geometry Seminar webpage has been corrected.
Date: Friday, December 06, 2013
Location: 1360 East Hall (4:00 PM to 5:00 PM)
Title: Semi-classical aspects of reduction (Joint with Colloquium!)
Abstract: By exploiting its symmetries one can reduce a physical problem to a problem with fewer degrees of freedom. I will discuss some mathematical formulations of this (more or less self-evident) fact and describe some results in classical and quantum mechanics which the "theory of reduction" seems to illuminate.
Speaker: Victor Guillemin
