Science Bulletins: Derecho
On July 4, 1999, a rare and terrifying storm swept through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. What began like a standard-issue thunderstorm soon turned strange and fierce, generating green clouds and strong winds reminiscent of a tornado. In fact, the storm was a cousin of the tornado: a derecho (pronounced "de-RAY-cho"), a type of storm so infrequent and fast-moving that only in recent years have meteorologists begun to understand how to recognize and forecast it.

Daniel Pomerleano: Curved String Topology and Fukaya Categories
Daniel Pomerleano, University of California - Berkeley In this talk, we will look at non-commutative versions of Landau-Ginzburg models. More precisely, given a simply connected manifold M such that its cochain algebra, C(M), is a pure Sullivan dga, we will consider curved deformations of the algebra of chains on its loop space and consider when the category of curved modules over these algebras becomes fully dualizable. For simple manifolds, like products of spheres, we are able to give an ex
