UIUC-WUSTL Joint Symplectic Geometry Seminar Schedule
In the talk, we explain how to formulate PDE's within the framework of jet spaces. This allows the definition of the so-called formal solution space of a non-linear PDE. In case the PDE is formally integrable, the formal solution space carries in a natural way the structure of a profinite dimensional manifold.

Professor Rachel Roberts Receives an NSF Grant for Collaborative Research on Taut Foliations and Contact Topology
Contact and symplectic topology are branches of mathematics that are motivated by Physics, specifically by classical mechanics and thermodynamics. This National Science Foundation funded project seeks to extend the application of physical phenomena to the study of three-dimensional topology.
Assistant Professor Job Opening
The Mathematics Department of Washington University in St. Louis, MO, has two openings for tenure track Assistant Professor in mathematics, to begin August 2017.
John Shareshian receives NSF Grant
John Shareshian studies problems in combinatorics that arise in or have consequences for other fields of mathematics. There are close connections between combinatorics and other fields of mathematics in which non-discrete objects are studied, including topology and geometry. The work of Shareshian involves the close study of such connections, with the aim of solving problems about both discrete and non-discrete structures.
National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant for Math Department's John McCarthy
John McCarthy has received a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation to study Operator Theory and Applications. He will study problems in operator theory, function theory, and in non-commutative functions.
The Workshop on Higher-Order Asymptotics and Post-Selection Inference (WHOA-PSI) will take place September 30 - October 2, 2016 on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
