M12584: Knot Theory: An Introduction in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
Knot theory is a burgeoning branch of mathematics which has numerous applications to modern topological and geometric problems. In this class, I will define a mathematical knot, draw numerous examples of knots, define what makes a knot the "same" as another knot, and introduce some ways of distinguishing knots from others. This is intended to be a rudimentary introduction to an incredibly rich branch of modern mathematics.

Z12585: Labor Market with Search Frictions in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
We will try to derive a simple model of the Diamond-Mortensen-Pissarides (DMP) model for the labor market with search frictions. This model won its authors the 2010 Nobel Prize in Economics.
