Workshop — Lie Groups, Singular Spaces, and Higher Structures
09 Jan 2023 - 13 Jan 2023 • The Fields Institute, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The purpose of this conference is to create a discussion between experts that work on a number of such approaches to singular spaces as well as on the broader themes that lead to these structures: Hamiltonian group actions, completely integrable systems, and geometric quantization.

Measured group theory
06 Mar 2023 - 17 Mar 2023 • Montréal, Canada
Organizer:
CRM / Université de Montréal
Abstract:
Measured group theory looks at groups from a probabilistic perspective, by studying their actions on probability spaces up to orbit equivalence. It turns out that the orbit equivalence relations of these actions can remember information about the group, which has yielded classification and rigidity results, as well as new invariants such as cost, |^2-Betti numbers, and ergodic dimension. Initiated by Gromov and Zimmer, the subject has become a very fruitful area of research over the last 25 years. One reason for this is that to study the orbit equivalence relation of an action, one tries to measurably equip the orbits with various combinatorial and geometric structures (graphs, trees, CW-complexes) and investigate their characteristics (colorings, matchings, ends, |^2-Betti numbers), which often requires machinery from the corresponding subjects, and also contributes back to these subjects with new results. This two-way traffic has established new connections between Measured Group Theory and various different areas, including ergodic theory, descriptive set theory, probability theory, combinatorics, geometric group theory, Lie groups, and von Neumann algebras.

Workshop — Lefschetz Properties in Algebra, Geometry, Topology and Combinatorics
15 May 2023 - 19 May 2023 • The Fields Institute, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The study of Lefschetz properties for Artinian algebras was motivated by the Lefschetz theory for projective manifolds, begun by S. Lefschetz, and well established by the late 1950's. Many of the important Artinian graded algebras appear as cohomology rings of an algebraic variety or manifold, though recent important developments have demonstrated important cases of the Lefschetz properties beyond such geometric settings (such as Coxeter groups or matroids). This renews interest in understanding the Lefschetz property, and Artinian algebras that admit them, systematically.

BIRS Workshop — Spinorial and octonionic aspects of G2 and Spin(7) geometry
28 May 2023 - 02 Jun 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
There exists a mysterious algebraic structure in 8-dimensional space that does not behave in the same way as the ordinary arithmetic that we all learn as children. Somewhat surprisingly, this strange algebra, called the octonions, shows up naturally in the study of certain higher dimensional geometric spaces, called manifolds, that are of importance in physics and in the study of the equations introduced by Einstein in general relativity. Geometers have been studying such spaces for a number of years, mostly using tools from calculus and differential equations. The proposed workshops intends to introduce these researchers to experts in the special octonion algebra, as well as in related special algebraic structures called spinors, to facilitate a cross-pollination of ideas, methods, and techniques. Some of these groups have never before been brought together in this way.

Summer School — Inclusive Paths in Explicit Number Theory
02 Jul 2023 - 15 Jul 2023 • Kelowna, B.C., Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) / UBCO
Abstract:
How primes and L-functions are linked is at the core of analytic number theory, with the Gener- alized Riemann Hypothesis (GRH) being its star conjecture. The field of explicit number theory focuses on simple yet notoriously difficult questions such as the Goldbach conjecture (Can every even number be written as the sum of two primes?) and Legendre’s conjecture (Is there a prime number between every two consecutive squares?). It is likely one of the most exacting flavors of number theory: in addition to scientific creativity, it requires precision and endurance to produce meaningful results. Working in teams with complementary expertise would allow to tackle some problems in the field more efficiently.

BIRS Workshop — New Directions in Applied Linear Algebra
27 Aug 2023 - 01 Sep 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
This workshop focuses on addressing general theoretical problems that underpin cutting-edge applications of linear algebra, including low-rank approximation and tensor decomposition, optimization, machine learning, nonlocal network dynamics, and uncertainty quantification. By bringing together experts from these different communities at a BIRS workshop, new insights in applied linear algebra will be brought to these challenging problems, which we expect to generate significant advances to state-of-the-art computational algorithms in the next decade.

BIRS Workshop — Complex Lagrangians, Mirror Symmetry, and Quantization
15 Oct 2023 - 20 Oct 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
The workshop is conceived in response to recent breakthroughs in physics and mathematics. One is the real quantization of Hitchin moduli spaces due to Gaiotto and Witten, and the other is a deformation quantization theory of Kontsevich and Soibelman that has achieved a vast mathematical foundation and generalization of topological recursion of Eynard and Orantin in random matrix theory. The vision of the organizers is that these two theories should be related through mirror symmetry. The workshop is organized to test this vision, and to explore its mathematical consequences.

Twinned Conference — C*-Algebras and Tensor Categories
06 Nov 2023 - 10 Nov 2023 • ICMS, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh and The Fields Institute, Canada, Canada
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
This event will be a twinned transatlantic conference on “C*-algebras and tensor categories”, promoting new connections between C*-algebra theory and tensor categories/subfactors - an interface with tremendous, yet barely explored, potential. The two locations of the conference will be the Fields Institute in Canada and ICMS in Edinburgh.

Many major breakthroughs in the classification of C*-algebras of finite topological dimension have been underpinned by the large-scale transfer of von Neumann techniques on multiple levels. The overarching objective of this conference is to bring together researchers at the interface of the rapidly developing areas of the structure and classification of C*-algebras and subfactor theory/tensor categories.
