Geometry and Topology Seminar

We meet Thursdays at 2:50–3:50 pm in WH-100E followed by refreshments served from 4:00–4:25 pm in WH-102. This semester's organizer is Jonathan Williams.

Some seminar speakers will also give a colloquium talk at 4:30 pm on the same day as the seminar talk. This seminar is partly funded as one of Dean's Speaker Series in Harpur College (College of Arts and Sciences) at Binghamton University.

The seminar has an announcement mailing list open to all. There is also a Google calendar with the seminar schedule (also in iCal).

  • November 15
    Speaker: C S Aravinda (TIFR Centre for Applicable Mathematics, Bangalore)
    Title: Geodesic conjugacies in nonpositive curvature

    Abstract: The question of whether a time-preserving geodesic conjugacy determines a closed, negatively curved Riemannian manifold up to an isometry is one of the central problems in Riemannian geometry. While an answer to the question in this generality has yet remained elusive, this talk will briefly give an overview and discuss a certain improvement of a known result.
