Mobius transformations in Biology
Abstract: In this talk I will first introduce a few compartmental models based on differential equations that describe biological phenomena, such as animal dispersion and epidemics. I will then review the Mobius transformation and its properties. Finally, I will explain how such transformations arise in the stability analysis of steady states in the models. This is joint work with Jared Bronski.

Vector fields on a stack form a Lie 2-algebra.
Abstract: (joint work with Daniel Berwick-Evans). We prove that the category of vector fields on a geometric stack is a Lie 2-algebra. I will start by sketching out the definitions of a stack, a geometric stack, vector field on a stack and of a (Baez-Crans) Lie 2-algebra, which is a categorified version of a Lie algebra.
