Let $T_n$ denote the $n$th Taft algebra. We fully classify inner-faithful actions of $T_n \otimes T_n$ on four-vertex Schurian quivers as extensions of the actions of $\mathbb{Z}_n \times \mathbb{Z}_n$. One example will be presented in full, with the remaining results briefly given.

The Brauer group of an elliptic curve $E$ is an important invariant with intimate connections to cohomology and rational points. Elements of this group can be described as Morita equivalence classes of central simple algebras over the function field. The Merkurjev-Suslin theorem implies that these classes can be written as tensor product of symbol (or cyclic) algebras. In this talk, I will describe an algorithm to calculate generators and relations of the $q$-torsion ($q$ a prime) of the Brauer group of $E$ in terms of these tensor products over any field of characteristic different from $2$,$3$, and $q$, containing a primitive $q$-th root of unity. This is work in progress.

The replacement property (or Steinitz Exchange Lemma) for vector spaces has a natural analog for finite groups and their generating sets. For the special case of the groups $PSL(2,p)$, where $p$ is a prime larger than 5, first partial results concerning the replacement property were published by Benjamin Nachman. The main goal of this talk is to outline the methods involved in providing a complete answer for $PSL(2,p)$ (which was accomplished during the Summer of 2018). This talk is based on a paper in preparation joint with Baran Zadeoglu and David Cueto Noval.

A discussion of more recent results, and still-open questions, on free subalgebras and free multiplicative subsemigroups of associative algebras.
Edward Letzter, Temple University
In the 1970s, Lichtman asked whether or not the multiplicative group of units of a noncommutative division algebra contains a free subgroup and Makar-Limanov asked whether or not a finitely generated infinite dimensional noncommutative division algebra must contain a free subalgebra. These questions are still open in general, even if many important special cases have been resolved, and have recently received renewed attention. (These questions can be considered in analogy to the Tits Alternative for linear groups as well as Gromov's Theorem on groups with polynomial growth.) My talks will survey both older and newer results.

For a separable C^*-algebra A, we introduce an exact C^*-category called the Paschke Category of A, which is completely functorial in A, and show that its K-theory groups are isomorphic to the topological K-homology groups of the C^*-algebra A. Then we use the Dolbeault complex and ideas from the classical methods in Kasparov K-theory to construct an acyclic chain complex in this category, which in turn, induces a Riemann-Roch transformation in the homotopy category of spectra, from the algebraic K-theory spectrum of a complex manifold X, to its topological K-homology spectrum. This talk is based on the preprint https://arxiv.org/abs/1810.11951
