Emily Windes (Oregon) will give the geometry seminar at 5pm on 27th May. Emily’s title is “The moduli space of graphical associatives” and her abstract is below.

Note, this talk was originally scheduled for 20th May, but has been moved to 27th May to avoid a national holiday.

*In this talk, I discuss an infinite-dimensional Lagrange-multipliers problem that first appeared in Donaldson and Segal’s paper “Gauge Theory in Higher Dimensions II”. The longterm goal is to apply Floer theory to a functional whose critical points are generalizations of three (real) dimensional, special Lagrangian submanifolds. I will discuss a transversality theorem related to the moduli space of solutions to the Lagrange multiplers problem.*
