AIM workshop — Fisher-Hartwig asymptotics, Szego expansions, and applications to statistical physics
ID
815072
Dates
27 Mar 2017 - 31 Mar 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will focus on the theory of Toeplitz matrices (TM) and Wiener-Hopf operators (WHO). In the recent ten or so years, the theory of these operators (TM and WHO) attracted a great deal of renewed attention from mathematical and theoretical physics communities due to the mathematical beauty of problems involved, and due to new applications in physics. For example, novel developments in quantum information theory and statistical physics concern the asymptotics of the (quantum) entanglement entropy of thermal equilibrium states, the overlap of ground states in the Anderson orthogonality catastrophe and the emptiness formation probability in quantum spin models. These quantities can be deduced from suitable Szego limit theorems, that is, from asymptotic results for traces of certain functions of TM and WHO.

Hot Topics: Galois Theory of Periods and Applications
ID
879845
Dates
27 Mar 2017 - 31 Mar 2017
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Periods are integrals of algebraic differential forms over algebraically-defined domains and are ubiquitous in mathematics and physics. A deep idea, originating with Grothendieck, is that there should be a Galois theory of periods. This general principle provides a unifying approach to several problems in the theory of motives, quantum groups and geometric group theory. This conference will bring together leading experts around this subject and cover topics such as the theory of multiple zeta values, modular forms, and motivic fundamental groups.

AIM workshop — Foundations of tropical schemes
ID
815126
Dates
10 Apr 2017 - 14 Apr 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will focus on the continuing development of scheme-theoretic techniques in tropical geometry and their applications to broad questions in tropical geometry and algebraic geometry. Tropical scheme theory seeks to generalize the standard constructions in scheme theory to semirings, with the aim of providing algebraic and geometric foundations for tropical geometry. The goals of this workshop are to develop a common language and shared understanding of this developing theory and to explore applications.

AIM workshop — Engel structures
ID
815103
Dates
17 Apr 2017 - 21 Apr 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the emerging theory of Engel structures on four-manifolds, especially questions of rigidity versus flexibility, and its (potential) connections with contact topology, dynamics, and four-dimensional differential topology and gauge theory.

The main purpose of the workshop is to review some recent progress on the existence of Engel structures and to stimulate further research by bringing into focus geometrically interesting questions and by making connections to the modern theory of four-manifolds. With this goal in mind, the workshop will bring together people with different areas of expertise: those responsible for previous work on Engel structures, experts in contact topology and related topics, and experts on four-manifolds. Questions of a more dynamical flavor as well as questions pertaining to subriemannian geometry may also be discussed.

AG17 — SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry
ID
832207
Dates
31 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017
Location
Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, United States
Abstract
The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry is to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. "Algebraic geometry" is interpreted broadly to include at least: algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology. These methods have already seen applications in: biology, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics, and statistics. We welcome participation from both theoretical mathematical areas and application areas not on this list which fall under this broadly interpreted notion of algebraic geometry and its applications.

Summer School: Dyson-Schwinger Equations, Topological Expansions, and Random Matrices
ID
881512
Dates
28 Aug 2017 - 01 Sep 2017
Location
Columbia University, New York, United States
Abstract
Analyzing the large dimension asymptotics of highly correlated systems such as random matrices and random tilings has been a hot topic for the last twenty years. This summer school will investigate a general class of such models using the so-called Dyson-Schwinger equations and generalizations such as Nekrasov's equations. Alice Guionnet (Lyon) will give ten main lectures, divided into two per day. Besides these lectures there will be supplementary lectures by other senior researchers attending the school. This school is intended for graduate students and postdocs who are starting to learn random matrix theory and have some background in probability.

Derived Algebraic Geometry
ID
881802
Dates
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Derived algebraic geometry is an extension of algebraic geometry that provides a convenient framework for directly treating non-generic geometric situations (such as non-transverse intersections in intersection theory), in lieu of the more traditional perturbative approaches (such as the "moving" lemma). This direct approach, in addition to being conceptually satisfying, has the distinct advantage of preserving the symmetries of the situation, which makes it much more applicable. In particular, in recent years, such techniques have found applications in diverse areas of mathematics, ranging from arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric representation theory, and homotopy theory. This semester long program will be dedicated to exploring these directions further, and finding new connections.
