DROP/ADD: Fall 2018 drop/add opens again August 6, 2018. If you tried to add an undergraduate math course and received an honors restriction, a major or level restriction, or a prerequisite error, please complete the Math Fall 2018 Drop/Add Survey. Students who receive a closed section error should continue to try to add themselves to a section of the course. We will open seats periodically. More information can be found here.

Featured Research

Leonardo Mihalcea - My research centers around the study of various aspects of ordinary and quantum cohomology theories of (generalized) flag varieties. This is a vast area where the symmetry of flag manifolds meets the subtle geometry of moduli spaces of rational curves. It uses techniques from Algebraic Geometry (such as Intersection Theory, Schubert Calculus, Gromov-Witten theory and the study of K-theory), Combinatorics (root systems and symmetric functions) and Geometric Representation Theory (geometry of homogeneous spaces), with bridges to seemingly distant areas such as Integrable Systems (Toda lattice).

To the right there is a picture of the moment graph of the flag manifold of type G2, obtained by Rachel Elliott and Mark Lewers, who worked on an undegraduate research project under my supervision. They used this moment graph to calculate the "curve neighorhoods" of Schubert varieties in the G2 flag manifold, and found G2 analogues of "quantum Schubert polynomials".
