AIM workshop — Trisections and low-dimensional topology
ID
815051
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 — Foundations of tropical schemes
ID
815148
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
815147
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.

Groups and computation (Schupp conference)
ID
865934
Dates
26 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017
Location
Hoboken, New Jersey, United States
Abstract
The conference will be held from June 26th through June 30th 2017 at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Group theory, computability and algorithms have been inextricably intertwined since the fundamental papers of Max Dehn. The basis of all undecidability results in group theory and topology is the unsolvability of the word problem for finitely presented groups. There are many close links between group theory and automata theory and logic. The asymptotic-generic point of view of geometric group theory has recently led to new ideas in computational complexity and the theory of computability. This conference will explore several aspects of these connections.

AIM workshop — Topology of the biomolecular world
ID
815219
Dates
24 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to topological modeling and analysis of biomolecules. A major feature of life sciences in the 21st century is their transformation from phenomenological and descriptive disciplines to quantitative and predictive ones. Revolutionary opportunities have emerged for mathematically driven advances in biological research. However, the emergence of excessive complexity in self-organizing biological systems poses fundamental challenges to their quantitative description. Dealing with the connectivity and transformation of different components in a space, topology provides a dramatic simplification of biomolecular data and sheds light on drug design, protein folding, organelle function, signaling, gene regulation networks and topology-function relationship.

AG17 — SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry
ID
832163
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.

Enumerative Geometry Beyond Numbers
ID
832379
Dates
16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Traditional enumerative geometry asks certain questions to which the expected answer is a number: for instance, the number of lines incident with two points in the plane (1, Euclid), or the number of twisted cubic curves on a quintic threefold (317 206 375). It has however been recognized for some time that the numerics is often just the tip of the iceberg: a deeper exploration reveals interesting geometric, topological, representation-, or knot-theoretic structures. This semester-long program will be devoted to these hidden structures behind enumerative invariants, concentrating on the core fields where these questions start: algebraic and symplectic geometry.

Hamiltonian systems, from topology to applications through analysis
ID
832342
Dates
13 Aug 2018 - 14 Dec 2018
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
The interdisciplinary nature of Hamiltonian systems is deeply ingrained in its history. Therefore the program will bring together the communities of mathematicians with the community of practitioners, mainly engineers, physicists, and theoretical chemists who use Hamiltonian systems daily. The program will cover not only the mathematical aspects of Hamiltonian systems but also their applications, mainly in space mechanics, physics and chemistry. The mathematical aspects comprise celestial mechanics, variational methods, relations with PDE, Arnold diffusion and computation. The applications concern celestial mechanics, astrodynamics, motion of satellites, plasma physics, accelerator physics, theoretical chemistry, and atomic physics. The goal of the program is to bring to the forefront both the theoretical aspects and the applications, by making available for applications... (see website for more details).
