Manchester Algebra Seminar - John Murray

13:00 - 14:00 24 May 2022

Speaker: John Murray Title: From the Alperin-McKay conjecture to Berstein-Zelevinsky Triangles Abstract: The McKay conjecture asserts that a finite group has the same number of odd degree irreducible characters as the normalizers of its Sylow 2-subgroups. The Alperin-McKay (A-M) conjecture generalizes this to the height-zero characters in the...

Logic Seminar - Paul Shafer (Leeds)

15:00 - 16:00 25 May 2022

Title: Cohesive powers of linear orders Abstract: A cohesive power of a computable structure is an effective analog of an ultrapower, where a cohesive set acts as an ultrafilter.  We compare the properties of cohesive powers to those of classical ultrapowers.  In particular, we investigate what structures arise as the cohesive power of B over...

[Internal UoM Event] Mapping/GIS Innovation Club Monthly Meeting

15:00 - 16:00 25 May 2022

This is a monthly meeting of the Mapping/GIS Innovation Club. The purpose of Mapping/GIS club activity is to allow UoM researchers to: - Present their research and discuss sticking points that the community may be able to help them with - Find new collaboration partners from across the University - Ask questions within the community so that...

Faculties of Science & Engineering and Humanities Electrification Workshop

12:30 - 15:30 26 May 2022

Please note that tickets are sold out for this event. The electrification of the UK is fundamental to the government’s 2050 Net Zero targets. This is a radical change that will impact us all, technically, economically, and culturally. To enable this, the UK government is poised to inject approximately £1 trillion in public/private investment...

Manchester Algebra Seminar - Carl-Fredrik Nyberg brodda

13:00 - 14:00 31 May 2022

Speaker: Roy Oste - University of Ghent Title: Supercentralisers for realisations of osp(1|2) and Howe duality Abstract: In this talk, we consider the orthosymplectic Lie superalgebra osp(1|2). For a realisation of osp(1|2) in a superalgebra, we show that its supercentraliser can be obtained by means of projection operators. We then apply this...

Quantum materials: the challenge of the second quantum revolution

13:00 - 14:00 01 June 2022

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Professor David Jamieson. A quantum computer with a billion qubits would have revolutionary capabilities including, potentially, quantum mechanical drug design or discovering new pathways to fusion power. At present quantum computer technology is approaching Preskill’s “Noisy Intermediate Scale...
