INMS Workshop — Gauge Fields in Arithmetic, Topology & Physics
06 Mar 2023 - 10 Mar 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
There is a history of fruitful links between low-dimensional topology and number theory, going back at least to Mazur's observation that primes in number rings can be viewed as analogues of knots in a 3-manifold. More recently, the introduction of arithmetic gauge theory by M. Kim and collaborators paves the way to further bring ideas from theoretical physics to bear on fundamental problems in number theory and arithmetic geometry. This conference aims to explore this exciting new direction, and the links between number theory, topology and physics in general, with a particular focus on the role played by gauge fields as a unifying framework.

INMS Workshop — Fractal Geometry
03 Jul 2023 - 07 Jul 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
This workshop will bring together researchers with common interests in fractals and related areas such as ergodic theory, geometric measure theory, and analysis. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate collaboration and research activity between the various groups in the UK, encourage and support the work of early career researchers in this area, and provide a platform for dissemination of work in fractal geometry.

Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
The main objective of this workshop is to bring together a range of researchers in geometry and topology, whose research interests are closely aligned to topics where geometric flows either already or are expected to play a key role, with experts in the analysis of geometric flows.

A Festival Remembering Victor Snaith: Topology, Number Theory and Interactions
10 Jul 2023 - 14 Jul 2023 • Bristol, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Bristol
Abstract:
Victor P. Snaith (1944 – 2021) was distinguished not just as an outstanding mathematician who made deep and lasting contributions in algebraic topology and number theory but also as a charismatic leader who enthusiastically developed research communities and generously supported young researchers.

The conference will bring together homotopy theory, cohomology of groups, algebraic K-theory and number theory, the main areas in which Vic worked. The aim is to feature important developments, paying special attention to synergies between these areas, as Vic did in much of his versatile research.

INMS Workshop — Geometric representation theory and W-algebras
28 Aug 2023 - 01 Sep 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Some of the most exciting developments in geometric representation theory revolve around the relatively new theory of W-algebras. Broadly speaking these are obtained via the process of quantum Hamiltonian reduction from the some of the most influential structures in modern representation theory: enveloping algebras and universal affine vertex algebras. The applications of W-algebras are seemingly endless, but we list some key examples: the ordinary and modular representation theory of Lie algebras, the classification of integrable systems (especially generalisations of the KP hierarchy), a deeper understanding of smooth representations of affine Lie algebras, conformal field theories (and their associated AdS duals), modular tensor categories and the famous geometric Langlands program, once described by Edward Frenkel as “the grand unifying theory of mathematics”. The aim of this workshop is to bring the world's leading experts together to investigate recent developments in the theory of W-algebras and their representation theory, as well as interactions with other topics in geometric representation theory.

INMS Workshop — Topological Quantum Computation
09 Oct 2023 - 13 Oct 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Topology is likely to be featured prominently in any truly useful quantum computation scheme. The hurdle of scalable fault-tolerance is insurmountable with the current incremental progress -- while it is possible to engineer systems supporting hundreds of physical qubits, applications beyond academic interest require millions of qubits to implement robust error correction. Topological quantum computation (TQC) relies upon the preparation of topological phases of matter supporting non-abelian anyons to perform inherently fault-tolerant operations. As errors are corrected at the hardware level through the topological nature of anyons, the problem of scalability is simultaneously overcome. On the other hand, despite years of effort we still don't have unassailable confirmation that non-abelian anyons exist. This workshop will bring together researchers in a diversity of fields in and around TQC for the purpose of broadening and deepening the subject, with an eye towards accelerating the realization of scalable technology.
