AIM workshop — Zero forcing and its applications
ID
815096
Dates
30 Jan 2017 - 03 Feb 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 theory of zero forcing and its applications. Zero forcing is a propagation on graphs described by the following process. Consider a graph G and color each of its vertices blue or white. A blue vertex v can force a white vertex w to be blue if w is the only white vertex in the neighborhood of v. A zero forcing set of G is a set of vertices S⊂V(G) such that if the vertices of S are colored blue and the remaining vertices are colored white, then every vertex can eventually become blue, after a repeated application of the forcing process. The zero forcing number of G,Z(G), is the minimum cardinality of a zero forcing set.

AIM workshop — Trisections and low-dimensional topology
ID
815128
Dates
20 Mar 2017 - 24 Mar 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to a new perspective on 4-dimensional topology introduced by Gay and Kirby in 2012: Every smooth 4-manifold can be decomposed into three simple pieces via a trisection, a generalization of a Heegaard splitting of a 3-manifold. Since 2012, the theory of trisections has expanded to include the relative settings of surfaces in 4-manifolds and 4-manifolds with boundary, and tantalizing evidence reveals that trisections may bridge the gap between 3- and 4-dimensional topology. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in low-dimensional topology in order to study interactions between trisections and other powerful tools and techniques

AIM workshop — Fisher-Hartwig asymptotics, Szego expansions, and applications to statistical physics
ID
815127
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.

AIM workshop — Foundations of tropical schemes
ID
815137
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
815092
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.

Summer Graduate School: Automorphic Forms and the Langlands Program
ID
835234
Dates
24 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
The summer school will be an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory of automorphic forms and representations. One of the goals will be to understand the statements of the main conjectures in the Langlands programme. Another will be to gain a good working understanding of the fundamental definitions in the theory, such as principal series representations, the Satake isomorphism, and of course automorphic forms and representations for groups such as GL_n and its inner forms.

AG17 — SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry
ID
832130
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.
