CALCULATOR EXAM POLICY , the official calculator is a Casio fx-991, or one with a blue sticker as issued by School of Business. All exam cover pages must only refer to these calculators only; any other exam cover, including other calculators (ie gold sticker) will not be accepted by the exams office.

Title: One-parameter criterion for stability I

Abstract: We will discuss the Hilbert-Mumford criterion for stability and semi-stability, which allows one to test for stability and semi-stability through one-parameter subgroups, and prove one direction of the theorem.
