313: Jamie Dimon predicting another financial Crisis

leave a comment »

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, who was born on March 13, 1956, said in his recent letter to shareholders that last year’s volatility in US Treasuries is a “warning shot” to the world that the next financial crisis could be exacerbated by a shortage of the U.S. Treasuries.

According to Dimon, The October 15, 2014 gyration, when U.S. Treasury yields fluctuated by almost 0.4 percentage point in one day, was an “unprecedented move” that could have profound consequences in a stressed environment,

According to Dimon,  U.S. Treasuries are supposed to be among the most secure and stable of all securities. It’s just a matter of time until some political, economic or market event triggers another financial crisis, he said, without predicting one is imminent.

313: John Tate: Mathematician

leave a comment »

John Torrence Tate, Jr. (born March 13, 1925) is an Americanmathematician, distinguished for many fundamental contributions inalgebraic number theoryarithmetic geometry and related areas in algebraic geometry. He is professor emeritus at Harvard University. He was awarded the Abel Prize in 2010.

Tate’s thesis (1950) on Fourier analysis in number fields has become one of the ingredients for the modern theory of automorphic forms and their L-functions, notably by its use of the adele ring, its self-duality and harmonic analysis on it; independently and a little earlier, Kenkichi Iwasawa obtained a similar theory. Together with his teacher Emil Artin, Tate gave a cohomological treatment of global class field theory, using techniques of group cohomology applied to the idele class group and Galois cohomology.[2] This treatment made more transparent some of algebraic structures in the previous approaches to class field theory which used central division algebras to compute the Brauer group of a global field.

Subsequently Tate introduced what are now known as Tate cohomology groups. In the decades following that discovery he extended the reach of Galois cohomology with the Poitou–Tate duality, the Tate–Shafarevich group, and relations withalgebraic K-theory. With Jonathan Lubin, he recast local class field theory by the use of formal groups, creating theLubin–Tate local theory of complex multiplication.

He has also made a number of individual and important contributions to p-adic theory; for example, Tate’s invention ofrigid analytic spaces can be said to have spawned the entire field of rigid analytic geometry. He found a p-adic analogue of Hodge theory, now called Hodge–Tate theory, which has blossomed into another central technique of modernalgebraic number theory.[2] Other innovations of his include the ‘Tate curve‘ parametrization for certain p-adic elliptic curves and the p-divisible (Tate–Barsotti) groups.

Many of his results were not immediately published and some of them were written up by Serge LangJean-Pierre Serre,Joseph H. Silverman and others. Tate and Serre collaborated on a paper on good reduction of abelian varieties. The classification of abelian varieties over finite fields was carried out by Taira Honda and Tate (the Honda–Tate theorem).[3]

The Tate conjectures are the equivalent for étale cohomology of the Hodge conjecture. They relate to the Galois action on the l-adic cohomology of an algebraic variety, identifying a space of ‘Tate cycles‘ (the fixed cycles for a suitably Tate-twisted action) that conjecturally picks out the algebraic cycles. A special case of the conjectures, which are open in the general case, was involved in the proof of the Mordell conjecture by Gerd Faltings.
