Workshop on New Geometry of Quantum Dynamics
12 Aug 2019 - 16 Aug 2019 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The mathematical scope of the program is within noncommutative geometry, quantum groups, graph C*- algebras, KK-theory, index pairing, C*-dynamical systems and crossed products, Dirac operators, spectral triples, curvature, and quantum Gromov-Hausdorff distance. There are a number unifying principles which establish connections among the proposed topics of the meeting. For example, dynamical systems link together graph C*-algebras and noncommutative metric geometry. We aim to construct quantum metric geometries of crossed products and graph algebras relating the Lipschitz norm and Dirac-operator approaches. This links the metric and spectral features of noncommutative geometry. A key research focus of the proposed activities is to make precise the impact of metric and spectral noncommutative geometry on noncommutative topology. Graph C*-algebras are an abundant source of examples which test the bridges between the topics of the proposed conference.

19w5046 — Groups and Geometries
25 Aug 2019 - 30 Aug 2019 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The Banff International Research Station will host the "Groups and Geometries" workshop in Banff from August 25, 2019 to August 30, 2019.

Group theory is an abstract subject, but it is also the mathematical way to investigate symmetry. Thus many problems from various areas of mathematics which involve some sort of symmetry are susceptible to the application of group theory. In this proposal we plan to cover three main areas: the abstract structure of finite groups; some geometrical aspects of group theory; and several recent applications of group theory to other areas of mathematics.

Spring Graduate School on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
20 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two mini-courses will be given by experts in Geometric Group Theory. These are designed to give graduate students and early career researchers a research level perspective on how and why Polyhedral Products appear in Geometric Group Theory, thereby enabling the participants to engage fully in the workshop that immediately follows.

Workshop on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two special cases of the polyhedral product construction have been immensely influential in geometric group theory, giving rise to at least three major families of examples of groups parametrized by flag simplicial complexes: right-angled Coxeter groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); right-angled Artin groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); and Bestvina-Brady groups associated with a covering space of the polyhedral product for pairs (,*). However, the interaction between toric topology and geometric group theory is largely unexplored. The purpose of this workshop is to significantly increase synergies between the two groups and establish a framework for approaching common problems and methods in a more global context.
