Welcome!
My name is Jared Marx-Kuo, and I am a fifth year graduate student in math at Stanford - next year I will be a postdoc at Rice University. Broadly speaking, I'm interested in
analysis, geometry, and mathematical physics. I am co-advised by Rafe Mazzeo and Otis Chodosh.
Before coming to Stanford, I studied math at the University of Chicago.

Personal Notes
Here is a collection of notes I've taken
- My most recent talk: "Minimal Surfaces, Allen--Cahn, and Balanced Energy" at Rice University's Geometry Seminar, September 20th, 2023
- I gave a talk on the fractional laplacian and non-local minimal surfaces. For Student Analysis Seminar. Feb, 2023
- Notes on Ricci Flow: From Math 258 at Stanford, taught by Professor Yi Lai in Fall 2022
- Area Exam Files: My syllabus and talk notes for my Area Exam on March 17th, 2022
- Introduction to Renormalized Volume: Notes for talks at Stanford Student Analysis Seminar and Kiddie Colloquium (Fall 2021)
- Reading with Otis Chodosh: Personal notes and some solutions to problems from Otis Chodosh's notes on the Allen-Cahn equation and minimal surface. Written Spring 2020. Definitely incomplete and needing of edits!
- Math 210B Winter 2020: Very informal notes from Math 210B as taught by Ravi Vakil in Winter 2020.
- Student Analysis Seminar Fall 2019: A weekly Stanford seminar on Analysis. The topic this quarter was entropy, as organized by Cole Graham.
- I gave a talk about Entropy and The Central Limit Theorem on 11/22.
- Student Probability Seminar Fall 2019: A weekly Stanford seminar on Probability. The topic this quarter was mix of mixing times, spectral gaps, and log-sobolev inequalities, as organized by Kevin Yang.
- I gave a talk about Hypercontractivity and log-sobolev inequalities on 10-18.
- Math 257a - Intro to Symplectic Geometry Fall 2019: Notes from the class taught by Umut Varolgunes.
- I gave a talk for the student symplectic seminar (for which I don't take regular notes) on sobolev spaces.
- I gave a talk at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Representation theory seminar on representation theory and quantum mechanics. This was geared towards mathematicians who had little to no background in quantum physics
Outreach
- See CV for all
- LIT Fellow 2023
- SURIM 2020 Group Leader (Problem Sheet, Partial Answers, Write-Up) - I organized a project on the Allen-Cahn equation for a group of 3 incoming sophomore students through the Stanford Undergraduate Research Institute in Mathematics. The students I worked with were Wenqi Li, George Nakayama, and Gautam Manohar, and with their permission, I've included their work from the summer.
- TA for CAAP calculus - I was a teaching assistant for a summer class on calculus through the University of Chicago's "Chicago Academic Achievement Program" (CAAP) geared towards incoming FLI first year students. I also taught a few lectures on ODEs in mechanics.
- DRP - I'm an organizer and mentor in Stanford's Directed Reading Program. Topics that I've mentored on so far include measure theory, probability, fourier analysis, manifolds, geometry, quantum mechanics, differential forms, and point-set topology.
- Past mentees: Gautam Manohar, Francesca Fernandes, Drew Gao, Julian Bernado, William White, Oliver Miller, Owen Shen, Andrew Lee, Jake Hofgard, Rayhan Razzak
- Diversity and Inclusion in Mathematics - see this great write up by Abigail Ward about teaching in a diverse (Stanford) classroom
- Resources for Mathematicians from Underrepresented Backgrounds - working list of resources for mathematicians of all ages from underrepresented backgrounds. Please email me if you have anything to add
