Problems in the theory of boundary behavior of analytic functions and F. and M. Riesz Theorem
Arthur Danielyan
5:00pm-6:00pm
PHY 130

Abstract

Some problems and new results in boundary behavior of analytic functions will be discussed based on certain new association of a few well known classical results. A new simple proof of the boundary uniqueness theorem of F. and M. Riesz will be presented.

Interpolation Projections and Polynomial Ideals
Boris Shekhtman
5:00pm-6:00pm
PHY 130

Abstract

There is an interesting relation between interpolation projections, ideals of polynomials, resulting algebraic varieties and solutions of homogeneous DE with constant coefficients. These relationships are completely understood for polynomials of one variables. In my talk I will explore some known (and unknown) analogues for several variables. Hence the talk will contain a mixture of approximation theory, algebraic geometry and PDEs.

Zeros of orthogonal polynomials on the circle
Vilmos Totik
5:00pm-6:00pm
PHY 130

Abstract

It is shown (in joint work with Barry Simon), that there is a universal measure on the circle such that any probability measure on the unit disk is the limit of zero distribution of some subsequence of the corresponding orthogonal polynomials. This answers in a very strong sense a problem of Turán. The result is obtained by showing that one can freely prescribe the \(n\)-th orthogonal polynomial and \(N-n\) zeros of the \(N\)-th one. This is obtained by calculating the topological degree of a related mapping.
