in Mathematics and Physics

ZUCMAP will take place in autumn every **Tuesday at 12:15**!

If you want to give a talk, please email ana.pavlakovic@math.ethz.ch or aiacopino@student.ethz.ch.

Tuesday, 11th October • 12:15 • HG G 3

Yilin Ni

Perfectoid Fields and the Tilting Equivalence

*Abstract.* "Tilting" establishes equivalences between algebraic objects of distinct nature, and therefore has important applications in geometry and number theory. In this talk we will have an overview of the theory, including historical background and some motivating examples.

We run a weekly colloquium where students present topics from diverse areas in mathematics and physics.

**The talks are followed by an Apéro**, giving you the chance to mingle in informal atmosphere over some delicious food!

All talks are aimed at undergraduate students (from the first semester on!), so don’t let the titles scare you! Who knows, maybe you’ll find a topic for your Bachelor’s thesis or other independent work!

We usually meet Tuesdays from 12:15 to 13:00 at HG G 3 (ETH Zurich).

Giving talks is a critical part of any scientist's career and so presenting to a group of fellow students in a familiar environment, is an easy way to get started. If you’re interested in giving a talk, contact ana.pavlakovic@math.ethz.ch.

(Note: You do *not* need to be an undergraduate to give a talk.)

As a thank you, all of our speakers are invited to a dinner at the end of the semester.

We thank the VMP for their support. Also, we would like to thank the IT Services, the Maths Department, and the FIM, for all the exceptions they made for us. ;)

ZUCMAP was initiated in autumn 2020 by Alexander Uhlmann, Jinghao Cao, and Silvio Barandun. It was reborn in spring 2022 by Johann Birnick and Siddharth Setlur. In autumn 2022 it is organised by Alessandra Iacopino and Ana Pavlaković.
