ABSTRACT
“The classical Liouville theorem says that if a harmonic function on the plane is bounded then it is a constant. At the same time for any angle on the plane, there exist nonconstant harmonic functions that are bounded everywhere outside the angle. The situation is different for discrete harmonic functions on the standard square lattices. The following strong version of the Liouville theorem holds on the twodimensional lattice. If a discrete harmonic function is bounded on 99% of the lattice then it is constant. Simple counterexample shows that in higher dimensions such improvement is no longer true.
We will present some discrete methods, compare the behavior of continuous and discrete harmonic functions and discuss some related questions and motivation.
The lectures are based on a joint work with L. Buhovsky, A. Logunov and M. Sodin.”
Tea will be served at 4 pm in 508 Mathematics.

Asymptotic Theory of Transaction Costs
“One of the great features of traditional asset pricing theory is the assumption that there are no market frictions. In particular, one assumes that there is no bidask spread, so that no transaction costs have to be considered. This bold simplification of the real world situation was crucial to clarify the picture.
In a second step, however, it becomes important to carefully analyze the impact of transaction costs on the optimal behaviour of economic agents. Special emphasis will be given to asymptotic results, i.e., the limiting behaiviour when transaction costs tend to zero.
In the first half of the series of lectures we shall develop the basics of this theory and subsequently apply these results to a study of the classical BlackScholes model.
In the second half we shall focus on applications which lead beyond the usual semimartingale framework. A typical example will be a price process driven by fractional Brownian motion. This setting does not fit into the usual no arbitrage framework as these processes fail to be semimartingales. The consideration of (small) proportional transaction costs allows us to find shadow price processes attached to these models, which allows to apply the well developed martingale theory also to these models.”

Geometric aspects of padic Hodge theory
ABSTRACT
“Building up in a leisurely fashion, we will describe some recent advances in our understanding of the cohomology of algebraic varieties over padic fields, especially the integral cohomology. The main goal of the course is to define prismatic cohomology and explain how it unifies the various cohomology theories of interest in padic geometry. “

Congratulations to Professor McDuff who was selected as the 2018 Sylvester Medal winner. The Sylvester Medal is now awarded annually for an outstanding researcher in the field of mathematics. McDuff will be awarded at the Royal Society’s Anniversary Day in November 2018 for leading the development of the new field of symplectic geometry and topology.

“Ivan Corwin, Professor of Mathematics, Columbia University, has been named Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). An induction ceremony will take place on July 2, 2018, at the IMS Annual Meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Dr. Corwin received the award for groundbreaking contributions in integrable probability, especially the theory of Macdonald processes, stochastic quantum integrable systems, and their connections with stochastic partial differential equations, random growth models, interacting particle systems, and the KardarParisiZhang universality.
Each Fellow nominee is assessed by a committee of his/her peers for the award. In 2018, after reviewing 37 nominations, 20 were selected for Fellowship. Created in 1935, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics is a member organization which fosters the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. The IMS has 3,500 active members throughout the world. Approximately 10% of the current IMS membership has earned the status of fellowship”.

TITLE
“Detecting Gerrymandering with Mathematical Rigor”
ABSTRACT
In February of this year, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court found Pennsylvania’s Congressional districting to be an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. In this talk, I will discuss one of the pieces of evidence which the court used to reach this conclusion. In particular, I will discuss a theorem which allows us to use randomness to detect gerrymandering of Congressional districtings in a statistically rigorous way.
