Jonathan Merzel, Professor of Mathematics
Jonathan Merzel, professor of mathematics, gave an invited presentation entitled “Path Connectedness in Spaces of Real Places over Rational Function Fields” at a meeting of the American Mathematical Society at the University of Hawaii. A space of real places is a particular kind of algebraic object given a geometric structure, which makes it amenable to geometric intuition. A real place, in some concrete situations, corresponds roughly to a way of evaluating functions even where they are not defined; for example, a real place may give a real value to x/y, even if x and y are both set to 0.
