Webinar: An Introduction to Minimal Surfaces by Prof. Rukmini Dey (ICTS, Bengaluru)

Gonit Sora is organizing a webinar to be delivered by Prof. Rukmini Dey of the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS), Bengaluru. The details are given below.

Date: 13 March, 2021 (Saturday)

Time: 4 pm IST

Title: An Introduction to Minimal Surfaces

Abstract: I will review some differential geometry of surfaces. Next I will introduce minimal surfaces and derive their Weirstrass Enneper representation. I will also mention interesting connections between certain Euler-Ramanujan identities and minimal surfaces. 

About the Speaker: Prof. Rukmini Dey is a member of the faculty at the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS), Bengaluru since 2015. She did her Masters from IIT Kanpur and her PhD from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook. She then held temporary positions at the University of Texas at Austin and ISI Kolkata, before joining the Harish-Chandra Research Institute as a faculty member, before shifting to ICTS. Her research interests are in geometry and mathematical physics.

The talk will be suitable for a general audience (college students are specially welcome), and will be held online via Zoom. It will also be livestreamed on our Facebook page.

This talk will be recorded and the recording is made available on our YouTube channel later.

e-Certificates will be issued to participants who attend the talk on Zoom.
