Video lectures on Fundamental groups, non-abelian cohomology, and diophantine geometry, by Minhyong Kim

These lectures were delivered in February 2012 at IHES.

Some of the same content can be found in documents on Kim’s webpage, under Expository Essays.

AMS meeting and video lectures on SAGE and elliptic curves

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on November 11, 2011

Trying to move (temporarily) from the abstract world of stable motivic homotopy theory, I have signed up for the SAGE course at the upcoming AMS meeting in Boston. As preparation for this, I found some video lectures from MSRI (thanks to the rss feed), giving an introduction to computing with elliptic curves in SAGE.

Among many other things, the AMS meeting also offers a healthy dose of homotopy theory, some lectures of Harpaz and/or Schlank on their remarkable paper on etale homotopy theory and rational points on varieties, and a special session with the amazing title Generalized Cohomology Theories in Engineering Practice. Maybe there will also be a MathOverflow meetup?

Atiyah on mathematical challenges for the next generation

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on June 1, 2010


A few months ago Michael Atiyah gave a talk at the Young Researchers in Mathematics conference in Cambridge. This talk is now available in various video formats here. Maybe someone is also interested in the talk by Michael Green on string theory. I haven’t had time to watch any of them but look forward to doing so after having finished writing up my thesis 😉
