Jesse Madnick

Third-year math graduate student at Stanford.
I am advised by both Rick Schoen and Robert Bryant (Duke).
My CV as of April 2015 is here.

Office: Room 380-T (basement of building 380)
E-mail: jmadnick [at] math [dot] stanford [dot] edu

Interests: Differential geometry, special holonomy,
gauge theory, calibrated geometry

Solutions to past algebra quals:
Fall 2009
Spring 2011
Spring 2012


I am currently working on Riemannian manifolds with special holonomy. In particular, I am thinking about their instantons and their calibrated submanifolds.


Current teaching: I am the CA for Math 177 this quarter.
Office Hours: Tue & Thu: 12:00-2:00 (Room 380-T)

Previous teaching:
  • Winter 2015: I was a TA for Math 42.
  • Summer 2014: I was a drop-in TA for SUMaC (Program II).
  • Winter 2014: I was the CA for Math 19.
  • Fall 2013: I was a TA for Math 41.


Seminars organized:
Fall 2014: I co-organized the Duke University Graduate Student Geometry Seminar.
2013-2014: I was one of the organizers for the Faculty Area Research Seminar (FARS).
Winter 2014: I organized the Cartan Seminar.

Notes from talks I've given (unpolished):

1. The Cartan-Janet Theorem: Local isometric embedding of real-analytic metrics into euclidean space.
