2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Alberta Number Theory Days XII
01 May 2020 - 03 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Number theory is a broad and central area of research with many connections and applications to other areas of mathematics and science. It is also an extremely active and diverse area of research. In recent years there have been significant advances in both analytic and algebraic number theory. The subject may be divided into several subdisciplines that range from pure mathematics, to more applied areas such as computational number theory and mathematical physics. Some of the pure mathematics subdisciplines are algebraic number theory, arithmetic geometry, analytic number theory, automorphic forms and representation theory. All of these fields are represented among the Albertan number theorists from Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge. The annual Alberta Number Theory Days provide a unique venue for these researchers, their students, and their visitors for face to face discussion of ideas and for facilitating collaborations. New connections are made and old associations are renewed. The workshop also allows for the exchange of knowledge, which will improve the progress of current projects.

Modern Breakthroughs in Diophantine Problems
30 Aug 2020 - 04 Sep 2020 • Banff, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
An equation is called Diophantine if whole number or fractional solutions are sought. Diophantine equations are named after Diophantus of Alexandria, a 3rd century mathematician and were popularized by Pierre de Fermat, a 17th century lawyer and amateur mathematician. Unlike most branches of mathematics, many Diophantine questions and theorems can be understood and appreciated by the general public, and the subject is a favourite with popularizers of mathematics. The methods for tackling Diophantine equations are however deep and varied, and the subject has recently experienced an explosion of new directions and results. This workshop will bring together experts and young scholars to explore these new directions and stimulate further research into Diophantine problems.

Arithmetic Aspects of Algebraic Groups
06 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Banff, AB, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
The investigation of arithmetic groups has been an active and important area of mathematical research ever since it arose in the work of Gauss, Klein, Poincare, and other famous mathematicians of the 18th and 19th centuries. New points of view have recently led to progress on classical problems, opened new directions of inquiry, and revealed unexpected connections with other areas of mathematics. The workshop will bring together experts in the area, researchers in related fields, and young mathematicians who wish to learn about the most recent advances and the most promising directions for the future of the field.
