EPSRC-Warwick Symposium on "Geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions"
ID
881543
Dates
01 Sep 2017 - 31 Aug 2018
Location
Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, Cove, United Kingdom
Abstract
The Warwick EPSRC Mathematics Symposium is organized annually by the University of Warwick with the support of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council for the benefit of the mathematical sciences community. It brings leading experts from around the world in a year-long program of research activities focused on an emerging theme in the mathematical sciences. From September 2017 to August 2018, the Symposium will concentrate on the theme of "Geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions". It will feature a series of international workshops and host a number of long-term visitors. There will also be a Research School organized in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society and the Clay Mathematics Institute.

Symposium on geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions
ID
865872
Dates
11 Sep 2017 - 13 Jul 2018
Location
Warwick, United Kingdom
Abstract
The Warwick EPSRC mathematics symposium is organised annually by the University of Warwick with the support of the EPSRC for the benefit of the mathematical sciences community in the UK. It brings leading national and international experts together with UK researchers in a year-long programme of research activities focused on an emerging theme in the mathematical sciences. From September 2017 to August 2018, the symposium will concentrate on the theme of ''Geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions''. It will feature a series of international workshops and host a number of long-term visitors. There will also be a summer school organised in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society and the Clay Mathematics Institute.
Topics
Geometric topology in low dimensions, Computation in geometric topology, Teichmüller dynamics, Geometry of Teichmüller space and mapping class groups, Geometry of outer spaces and outer automorphism groups, Representation varieties and geometric structures in low dimensions, Graphs, surfaces, and cube complexes

Geometric topology in low dimensions
ID
881614
Dates
18 Sep 2017 - 22 Sep 2017
Location
Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, Cove, United Kingdom
Abstract
The resolution of many of Thurston's prophetic questions about the structure of 3-manifolds has generated a vast array of techniques which permeate many of the areas covered by the symposium. As is often the case, the resolution of old conjectures has led to intriguing new questions, which will be the focus of this workshop. Examples include: given a combinatorial or arithmetic presentation of a 3-manifold, describe its geometric structure concretely ("effective geometrisation"); understand the geometry of the Thurston unit norm ball, for example how it behaves under taking towers of covers; understand the connection between Heegard-Floer homology and orderability of fundamental groups. Several old conjectures, such as the simple loop conjecture for surfaces in three-manifolds and the conjecture that a quasifuchsian group is determined by its pleating laminations, continue to motivate work.

Computation in geometric topology
ID
881757
Dates
11 Dec 2017 - 15 Dec 2017
Location
Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, Cove, United Kingdom
Abstract
The workshop is associated with the year-long Warwick Symposium on Geometry, Topology and Dynamics in Low Dimensions, and will bring together researchers in these subjects who have worked extensively with computers, researchers with problems which might be amenable to computer assistance, and researchers who are primarily interested in the practical and theoretical computer problems arising from work done in these areas. The emphasis will be on communication among these different groups, discussing theoretical questions of computability and complexity as well as more concrete practical computational tools. Organizers are Nathan Dunfield, Stephan Tillmann and Saul Schleimer.

Workshop on Teichmüller Dynamics
ID
881730
Dates
19 Mar 2018 - 23 Mar 2018
Location
Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, Cove, United Kingdom
Abstract
The workshop is associated with the year-long Warwick Symposium on Geometry, Topology and Dynamics in Low Dimensions. It will explore the interactions between Teichm\"uller dynamics and homogeneous dynamics, computation, algebraic geometry and symplectic geometry. It will investigate whether tools from the symplectic geometry community can be used in the flat surfaces community and also whether flat tools can answer symplectic questions. It will explore the use of computational methods in finding new orbit closures and look at the extent to which the algebraic geometers' completions of strata can be used to answer questions related to the SL(2,ℝ) action. Organizers: Corinna Ulcigrai, John Smillie and Anton Zorich.

INI Workshop RGMW06 — RGM follow up
ID
868253
Dates
09 Jul 2018 - 20 Jul 2018
Location
Cambridge, United Kingdom
Abstract
The subject of random geometry has evolved considerably during the programme of the same name which took place at the Newton Institute in spring 2015, and in the intervening months. For instance, a unification of the discrete and continuous perspectives for random surface models (eg random planar maps and Liouville quantum gravity) has been greatly advanced; new methods have been introduced in the study of disordered systems and their phase transitions; and new directions of research have emerged such as a rigorous investigation of Yang--Mills models.The goal of the two-week workshop will be to allow researchers worldwide and from all career stages to catch up on these developments, and to plan for future research directions of the subject by capitalising on recent progress.The workshop will combine a series of mini-courses with invited talks (TBA) over a period of two weeks.
