Mind and Language Seminar 4:00 pm
Mind and Language Seminar @ NYU Philosophy Dept. rm 202
Jan 23 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

After reading this work, students discuss it with one of the instructors on the day before the colloquium. Then at the Tuesday colloquium, the instructors give a summary review and raise criticisms or questions about the work. The author …

Gauge theory and boundaries: A complicated relationship, Henrique Gomes (Perimeter) 11:30 am
Gauge theory and boundaries: A complicated relationship, Henrique Gomes (Perimeter) @ Columbia University, Pupin Hall 705
Jan 28 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
I argue that we do not understand gauge theory as well as we think we do, when boundaries are present. I will briefly explain the conceptual and technical issues that arise at the boundary. I will then propose a tentative resolution, which requires us to think of theories not in space-time, but in field-space.

Game Theory with Mathematics Faculty Member Daniel King 7:00 pm
Game Theory with Mathematics Faculty Member Daniel King @ Wrexham Living Room
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Daniel King (BS, Lafayette College. MS, PhD, University of Virginia) is a mathematics scholar with special interests in mathematics education, game theory, history and philosophy of mathematics, and the outreach of mathematics to the social sciences and the humanities. He currently teaches an undergraduate course, Game Theory: The Study of Strategy and Conflict. In this talk, King will focus on two particularly intriguing “games:” Newcomb’s Problem and the Prisoners’ Dilemma. The analysis of both games leads us to a curious paradox of sorts. Fascinating and perplexing, these games and the paradoxes they unleash serve to challenge some of our most cherished beliefs and philosophical viewpoints. No prior knowledge of game …
