Vabilo na dogodek EMS/WiM Day / Invitation to EMS/WiM Day

ob dnevu žensk v matematiki / celebrating women in mathematics

 We are pleased to announce the EMS Women in Mathematics Day 2023. 

The Women in Math Committee (WiM) of the European Mathematical Society is organising an event called "EMS/WiM Day" within the initiative of "May 12th", a celebration of women in Mathematics in memory of Maryam Mirzakhani. The event consists of scientific talks (at the level of a Colloquium talk) of two distinguished speakers, which will take place online on Friday, May 19th, 2023, with the following schedule:
15:00 Welcome
15:15 Ana Caraiani (University of Bonn)
16:15 Isabelle Gallagher (Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris)
Any interested person may attend at:
Date: Friday, May 19th 2023
Time: 15:00 CEST
Delivered via Zoom:
The titles and abstracts of the talks are given below.

Please, forward the information to your contacts, and circulate it as widely as possible.
Best wishes from the EMS/WiM Committee,
Mikaela Iacobelli (chair), Maria del Mar Gonzalez (vice chair), Shiri Artstein, Alessandra Celletti, Stanislawa Kanas, Marjeta Kramar Fijavz, Isabel Labouriau, Pablo Mira, Anne Taormina
Speaker: Ana Caraiani (University of Bonn)
Title: Elliptic curves and modularity
Abstract: The goal of this talk is to give you a glimpse of the Langlands program, a central topic at the intersection of algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry and representation theory. I will focus on a celebrated instance of the Langlands correspondence, namely the modularity of elliptic curves. In the first part of the talk, I will give an explicit example, discuss the different meanings of modularity for rational elliptic curves, and mention applications. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss what is known about the modularity of elliptic curves over more general number fields.
Speaker: Isabelle Gallagher (Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris)
Title: On the dynamics of dilute gases
Abstract: The evolution of a gas can be described by different models depending on the scale of observation. A natural question, raised by Hilbert in his sixth problem, is whether these models provide consistent predictions. In the case of gases of hard spheres, Lanford showed in 1974 that the Boltzmann equation appears as a law of large numbers in the low density limit, at least for very short times. In this talk we will present Lanford's result, and some more recent extensions to understand fluctuations and large deviations around the Boltzmann equation.
