### Graduate Student Seminar, 4:30 pm September 12; HH229

#### Speaker:

Cabral Balreira
#### Title:

Topological Tools in Nonlinear Analysis
#### Abstract:

It is quite surprising to see that Nonlinear Analysis rests, in a
striking and simple way, on basic ideas from Topology. Methods from fixed point
theory and degree theory are such examples. We plan to give a survey of these
topological methods and comment on the celebrated Mountain Pass Theorem.
Specific examples in Analysis will be discussed in the setting of global
invertibility problems.
