Jesse Madnick



Third-year math graduate student at Stanford.
I am advised by both Rick Schoen and Robert Bryant (Duke).
My CV as of June 2014 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

Research

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


Teaching

Current teaching: I am a TA for Math 42 this quarter (Winter 2015).
Office Hours: TBD

Previous teaching:
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

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.
