DESCRIPTION:Title: Classical and new plumbings bounding contractible manifolds and homolog
y balls\nby Oğuz Şavk (Boğaziçi Üniversitesi) as part of Mimar Si
nan University Mathematics Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\nA central problem in lo
w-dimensional topology asks which \nhomology 3-spheres bound contractible
4-manifolds and homology 4-balls. \nIn this talk\, we address this problem
for plumbed 3-manifolds and we \npresent the classical and new results to
gether. Our approach is based on \nMazur’s famous argument and its gener
alization which provides a \nunification of all results.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Homotopy classification of operator solutions of linear systems\nby
Cihan Okay (Bilkent Üniversitesi) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathe
matics Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\nLinear systems of equations over a finite f
ield play an important role in quantum information theory. Instead of look
ing for solutions over the base field one can look for solutions (in a cer
tain sense) over the unitary group\, which are called operator solutions.
The data of this system of equations can be expressed using a hypergraph a
nd the operator solutions can be studied from a topological point of view
by considering certain topological realizations of these hypergraphs. In t
his talk I will describe how homotopical methods provide a way to classify
operator solutions of linear systems. Our basic approach is to interpret
operator solutions as maps from a topological realization of the hypergrap
h to a certain classifying space first introduced by Adem-Cohen-Torres Gie
se.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Fundamental symmetries of nature\nby Şeyda İpek (Carleton Universi
ty) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\n
The building blocks of our universe\, elementary particles\, obey some sim
ple rules based on certain symmetry arguments. The most basic interactions
of elementary particles can be described by the Standard Model\, whose un
derlying symmetry structure is described by the group structure SU(3)xSU(2
)xU(1). There are more symmetries--sometimes empirical\, sometimes acciden
tal--we encounter when studying elementary particles. Some of these symmet
ries must be broken in order for our universe to work\, e.g. based on our
observations matter--antimatter symmetry is not a good symmetry since we d
o not have any antimatter in the universe while the SM has this symmetry.
I will give a broad overview of the interconnection between particle phys
ics and symmetries and how they help us build theoretical models of our un
iverse.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Bolstering Stochastic Gradient Descent with Model Building\nby Özg
ür Martin (MSGSÜ) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Seminars
\n\n\nAbstract\nStochastic gradient descent method and its variants consti
tute the core optimization algorithms that achieve good convergence rates
for solving machine learning problems. These rates are obtained especially
when these algorithms are fine-tuned for the application at hand. Althoug
h this tuning process can require large computational costs\, recent work
has shown that these costs can be reduced by line search methods that iter
atively adjust the stepsize. In this talk\, we will introduce an alternati
ve approach to stochastic line search by using a new algorithm based on fo
rward step model building. This model building step incorporates a second-
order information that allows adjusting not only the stepsize but also the
search direction.\n\nThis is a joint work with S. I. Birbil\, G. Onay\, a

DESCRIPTION:Title: The structure of arbitrary Conze-Lesigne systems\nby Asgar Jamneshan
(Koç Üniversitesi) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Semina
rs\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider probability-preserving dynamical systems fro
m countable abelian group actions. Such a system is said to be a Conze-Le
signe system if it is equal to its second Host-Kra-Ziegler factor (these f
actors arise in the study of multiple recurrence and play a foundational r
ole in related areas in additive combinatorics and number theory). We pro
vide a classification of Conze-Lesigne systems in terms of algebraic data.
More precisely\, we show that an arbitrary Conze-Lesigne system is an in
verse limit of translational systems arising from locally compact nilpoten
t groups of nilpotency class 2 quotient by a lattice. Results of this typ
e were previously known when the acting group is finitely generated or a d
irect sum of cyclic groups. The talk aims at introducing the field. If t
ime permits\, we will present an application to additive combinatorics. T
he talk is based on recent joint works with Or Shalom and Terence Tao.\n

\nby Serdar Ay (Atılım Üniversitesi) as part of Mimar Sinan Univers

n the sense of Loynes) is a complex complete locally convex space with a s

nclude\, but is not limited to\, the chain of locally Hilbert $C^*$-module
s\, Hilbert $C^*$-modules and Hilbert Spaces\n We prove that\, on a Bar

operators and is a Locally $C^*$-Algebra\, generalizing the well known cor
responding fact from the theory of Locally Hilbert $C^*$-modules. \n\n
We pick a consequence of this result in the dilation theory of VH-Spaces a

DESCRIPTION:Title: Nontriviality of the first Hochschild cohomology of some block algebras
of finite groups\nby Constantin-Cosmin Todea (Technical University o
f Cluj-Napoca) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Seminars\n\n\
nAbstract\nHochschild cohomology $\\mathrm{HH}^*(A)$ of an associative (un
ital) $k$-algebra $A$ (here $k$ is a field) has a rich structure. First Ho
chschild\ncohomology $\\mathrm{HH}^1(A)$ is isomorphic to the quotient of
the space of $k$-linear derivations\nof $A$ modulo its inner derivations.
In the context of modular representation theory\, if the field $k$ has cha
racteristic $p$ and $G$ is a finite group\, an indecomposable direct algeb
ra factor $B$ of the group algebra $kG$ is called block algebra. Is $\\ma
thrm{HH}^1(B)$ nontrivial for any block algebra $B$ with nontrivial defec
t group? This is a question launched by Markus Linckelmann at the ICRA 201
6. We explain the basic facts needed to understand this question. We give
methods to investigate the nontriviality of the first Hochschild cohomol
ogy of some twisted group algebras. As a consequence we show that for some
block algebras\, with nontrivial defect groups\, the first Hochschild coh
omology is nontrivial.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: An Elmendorf-Piacenza style Theorem for actions of monoids\nby Mehm
et Akif Erdal (Yeditepe University) as part of Mimar Sinan University Math
ematics Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk I will describe a homotopy th
eory for actions of monoids that is built by analyzing their ``reversible
parts". Let $M$ be a monoid. For each submonoid $N\\leq M$ let $G(N)$ be t
he group completion of $N$. Given an $M$-space $X$ and a submonoid $N\\leq
M$\, we associate a $G(N)$-space $q_*^N(X)$ which sorts out “symmetries
” of the $N$-space $X$ with the restricted $N$-action. By using these $q
_*^N$'s we induce a model structure on the category of $M$-spaces and $M$-
equivariant and show that this model structure is Quillen equivalent to th
e projective model structure on the category of contravariant $\\mathbf{O}
(M)$-diagrams of spaces\, where $\\mathbf{O}(M)$ is the category whose obj
ects are induced orbits $M\\times_N G(N)/H$ for each $N\\leq M$ and $H\\le
q G(N)$ and morphisms are $M$-equivariant maps. Finally\, if time permits\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Beauville p-groups\nby Şükran Gül Erdem (TED University) as part
of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\nBeauville s
urfaces are a class of rigid complex surfaces that have many nice geometri
c properties. \n A finite group giving rise to such a surface is called
a \\textit {Beauville group}.\n What makes them so good to deal with is
the fact that they can be described in purely group theoretical terms.\n
A finite group $G$ is a Beauville group if $G$ is a $2$-generator group a
nd it has a pair of generating sets $\\{x_1\, y_1\\}$ and $\\{x_2\,y_2\\}$
such that\n $\\Sigma (x_1\,y_1) \\cap \\Sigma(x_2\,y_1)=\\{1\\}$ where
for $i=1\, 2$\n \\[\n \\Sigma(x_i\,y_i)\n =\n \\bigcup_{g\\in G} \
\\,\n \\Big( \\langle x_i \\rangle^g \\cup \\langle y_i \\rangle^g \\cup
\\langle x_iy_i \\rangle^g \\Big).\n \\]\n \n Catanese showed in 20
00 that the abelian Beauville groups are those of the form $C_n \\times C_
n$ with $(n\,6)=1$. \n After abelian groups\, the most natural class of
finite groups to consider are nilpotent groups. \n One can easily show t
hat the study of nilpotent Beauville groups can be reduced to that of Beau
ville $p$-groups.\n \n In this talk we survey a large collection of re
sults on Beauville $p$-groups: from the earliest examples of Beauville $p$
-groups to Beauville $p$-groups in the most known families of $p$-groups w
ith a good behavior with respect to powers\, such as regular $p$-groups\,
powerful $p$-groups\, $p$-central $p$-groups etc.\n \n We further focu
s on infinite families of Beauville $p$-groups arising from the quotients
of infinite groups such as the free group\, free product and triangle grou

\nby Neslihan Girgin (MSGSU) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics
Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\nLet q be a prime power and Fq be the finite field
with q elements. The explicit constructions\nof irreducible polynomials o
ver Fq is one of the main problems in the arithmetic of\nfinite fields whi
ch has many applications in several areas such as coding theory\, cryptogr
aphy\,\netc. In general\, some recursive methods are preferred to do these
constructions using\nrational transformations. \nIn particular\, we are i
nterested in methods that are obtained by using\nquadratic transformations
. For doing this\, we will first classify and normalize the rational trans
formations of degree 2 using the behaviour of the ramified places in the c
orresponding rational function field extensions over the finite field Fq.
Then we will investigate the constructions using Galois theory and some ba
sic observations in group theory. This approach provides to understand the
iterative constructions better and gives various generalisations of them.
It also helps to determine the requirements put on the initial polynomial
s easier.\n

ed hyperbolic geometry. A notable distinguish feature of hyperbolic geomet
ry is its negative curvature in a way that the sum of angles of a triangle
is less than π. Gromov much later in 1987 introduced hyperbolic groups w
hich are groups acting “nicely” on hyperbolic spaces\, or equivalently
finitely generated groups whose Cayley graphs are “negatively curved”
. Main examples are free groups and almost all surface groups. The fascina
ting subject of hyperbolic groups touches on many mathematical disciplines
such as geometric group theory\, low dimensional topology and combinatori
al group theory. It is connected to model theory through a question of Tar
ski.\n\nTarski asked around 1946 whether non abelian free groups have the
same first order theory. This question proved extremely hard to answer and
only after more than fifty years in 2001 Sela and Kharlampovich-Myasnikov
answered it positively. Both works are voluminous and have not been fully
absorbed yet. The great novelty of the methods and the depth of the neede
d results have made it hard to streamline any of the proofs. Despite the d
ifficulties there is some considerable progress in the understanding of th
e first-order theory of “the free group” and consequently first-order
theories of hyperbolic groups from the scopes of basic model theory\, Shel
ah’s classification theory and geometric stability. In this talk I will
survey what is known about these theories and what are the main open quest
ions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Weakly equivariant classification of small covers over a product of sim
plices\nby Aslı Güçlükan İlhan (Dokuz Eylül University) as part
of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Seminars\n\n\nAbstract\nA small cove
r over an n-dimensional simple convex polytope P is a smooth closed manifo
ld with a locally standard $\\mathbb{Z}_2^n$-action whose orbit space can
be identified with P. Small covers over P can be classified using characte
ristic functions from the set of facets of P to $\\mathbb{Z}_2^n$. In this
talk\, we give a weakly $\\mathbb{Z}_2^n$-equivariant classification of s
mall covers over a product of simplices in terms of associated digraphs. T
his is a joint work with S. Kaan Gürbüzer.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The moduli space of generalized D-elliptic sheaves\nby Özge Ülkem
(Galatasaray University) as part of Mimar Sinan University Mathematics Se
minars\n\n\nAbstract\nOne of the fundamental objects of the algebraic numb
er theory are elliptic curves. Drinfeld defined analogues of elliptic curv
es in the function field setting\, which are now called Drinfeld modules.
to prove Langlands correspondence he defined a categorically equivalent no
tion\, called elliptic sheaves\, and studied their moduli space. Since the
n many generalizations of Drinfeld modules and elliptic sheaves have been
worked out. In the first part of this talk we will form the function field
and classical setting and discuss similarities between them. Then\, we de
fine Drinfeld modules\, discuss the analogy between elliptic curves and Dr
infeld modules. In the second part we talk we will define a new generaliza
tion of elliptic sheaves\, called “generalized D-elliptic sheaves” and
talk on their moduli space and of the uniformization of the latter if tim
e permits.\n
