Workshop — Noncommutative Geometry meets Topological Recursion
27 Sep 2020 - 02 Oct 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop intends to be a first meeting point for specialists and young researchers active in non-commutative geometry, free probability, and topological recursion. In the two first areas, one often wants to compute expectation values of a large class of non-commutative observables in random ensembles of (several) matrices of size N, in the large N limit. The motivations come from the study of various models of 2d quantum gravity via random spectral triples, or from the problem of identifying of interesting factors via approximations by matrix models. Topological recursion and its generalizations provide a priori universal recipes to make and compactly organize such computations, not only for the leading order in N, but also to all orders of expansion in 1/N.in such a way that bridges to other domains where topological recursion has been applied (like enumerative geometry, tropical geometry, mirror symmetry, topological and more generally low-dimensional quantum field theories) become clear.

Workshop — Locality and Functoriality in Symplectic Geometry
18 Oct 2020 - 23 Oct 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
Symplectic geometry concerns symplectic manifolds. A key modern tool is an algebraic structure called the 'Fukaya category', which is associated to a single such object. Geometric relations between the manifolds are reflected in algebraic interactions between the categories. There has been a great deal of recent progress in understanding such relations. This workshop will bring together many of the key workers in this rapidly developing field to share ideas and set further directions of exploration.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Derived, Birational, and Categorical Algebraic Geometry
01 Nov 2020 - 06 Nov 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Birational geometry is a classical mathematic subject dating back to the late 1800s. It aims to classify geometric shapes by looking at the majority of their points and asks "if I remove some points from shape A and some other points from shape B, do they become the same shape?". This turns out to be a surprisingly difficult and fundamental mathematical question. Perhaps more surprising is that the classification of geometric shapes from birational geometry is related to the classification of abstract mathematical gadgets called derived categories, a formal language developed by prominent mathematicians in France in the 1960s. However, the relationship between derived categories and birational geometry remains unproven.

Workshop — Integral and Metric Geometry
01 Nov 2020 - 06 Nov 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
Valuation theory grew out of integral geometry, and studies such geometric quantities as volume, surface area, and their generalizations. Spaces with curvature bounds are geometric objects which are not necessarily smooth, but that retain nevertheless some of the features of smooth spaces. For example convexity/concavity properties of the distance function can be seen as a non-smooth generalization of the smooth notion of curvature of constant sign.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Topology and Entanglement in Many-Body Systems
29 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The possibility of using quantum mechanics to build computers that are both faster and more secure is an exciting technological leap. One of the most promising pathways to a robust architecture, referred to as topological quantum computing, has lead to fascinating research at the frontier of mathematics and physics. Properties of new, exotic states of matter can be understood - and hence implemented in practice - using tools that were developed by pure mathematicians in connection to surfaces and their curvature. This workshop is bringing together international experts to explore the intimate connections between such topological properties of quantum matter and the key resource of quantum computing: entanglement.

Abstract:
The study of discrete subgroups of Lie groups and the associated locally symmetric manifolds has a long and rich history, with powerful interconnections between the geometry of the locally symmetric space, topology of towers of its finite covers, and number-theoretic aspects. More recently dynamical and probabilistic techniques have been fruitfully employed to study these groups and spaces. The workshop will take stock of recent developments in these highly active fields from a variety of backgrounds.

Stability in mirror symmetry
07 Dec 2020 - 11 Dec 2020 • San Jose, California, United States
Organizer:
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring together mathematicians from a variety of backgrounds to discuss a central problem in mirror symmetry: the existence of special Lagrangian submanifolds, and their holomorphic mirrors, stable vector bundles. These two classes of objects form a set of canonical geometric objects, described by fully nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), which play a central role in mirror symmetry. Dating back to work of Thomas-Yau, it has long been conjectured that the existence of solutions to these nonlinear PDEs is equivalent to a purely algebraic notion of stability. This conjectural picture connects diverse fields of mathematics, ranging from stability conditions on derived categories, to symplectic geometry and the Fukaya category, to the study of the Lagrangian mean curvature flow and fully nonlinear systems of PDEs.
Topics:
The central topics for the workshop are: The Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow, singularity analysis, and connections with the Fukaya category. The deformed Hermitian-Yang-Mills equation, infinite dimensional GIT, and fully nonlinear systems. Understanding the Thomas-Yau conjecture for toric Fano manifolds and Landau-Ginzburg models.

Topics at the Interface of Low Dimensional Group Actions and Geometric Structures
04 Jan 2021 - 15 Jan 2021 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
In this two-week program, we explore the interactions between geometric group theory, geometric structures and Anosov representations. Geometric group theory, in the broadest sense, seeks to understand the structure of groups through their actions on objects with geometric meaning. Conversely, one can take a known group and attempt to understand all its geometrically meaningful actions. One natural notion that arises in this setting is an Anosov representation, which came about as an attempt to describe what it means for the action of a discrete group on a homogeneous space to be geometrically well behaved. Also, in his Erlangen program, Felix Klein viewed geometry as a space which is invariant under a group of transformations. This gave rise to the notion of a geometric structure, which gives yet another notion of a geometrically meaningful action of a group on a homogeneous space.

Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry
01 Feb 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Research in combinatorial algebraic geometry utilizes combinatorial techniques to answer questions about geometry. Typical examples include predictions about singularities, construction of degenerations, and computation of geometric invariants such as Gromov-Witten invariants, Euler characteristics, the number of points in intersections, multiplicities, genera, and many more. The study of positivity properties of geometric invariants is one of the driving forces behind the interplay between geometry and combinatorics. Flag manifolds and Schubert calculus are particularly rich sources of invariants with positivity properties.

Geometry, Topology and their Applications in Control System Design
21 Feb 2021 - 26 Feb 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
This workshop will have a special focus on control theory and control systems. Control theory deals with the problem of shaping the behavior of ``systems,'' where a system can be an engineered object, such as a robot or a train, or a natural one, such as a flock of birds or even the brain. The basic driving questions are how to actuate, and how to design, the system to get it to perform as desired. Due to the wide variety of physical systems that control theory handles, the use of more abstract mathematical tools is very well suited to this field, and has already proven useful many instances, such as the study of system stability or optimal design of control system.

Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The workshop will bring together some of the world's top experts and promising young researchers working at the interface of Stochastics and Geometry, broadly understood. Through expository talks and research presentations, the workshop will give a vibrant overview of the most recent developments in the interaction between analysis, geometry and stochastic analysis. The focus of the workshop will be different approaches to random processes in geometric settings, with emphasis on problems on heat kernel analysis on finite- and infinite-dimensional manifolds, sometimes equipped with degenerate geometries, as well as random matrices and non-commutative probability and geometric rough paths. Another objective of the workshop is to identify fundamental open problems in this area that are motivated by mathematical physics and other potential applications. We plan to maintain geographic diversity and also to invite some of the most promising junior mathematicians.

Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together a diverse group of researchers working on combinatorial and geometric aspects related to spaces with symmetries. The workshop will cover problems arising from various flavors of Schubert Calculus and enumerative geometry on flag manifolds, and problems from geometric representation theory and combinatorial Hodge theory. The topics covered include the study of Littlewood-Richardson coefficients, quantum cohomology and quantum K theory of flag manifolds, Maulik-Okounkov stable envelopes and characteristic classes, conformal blocks, and combinatorics related to moduli spaces, Macdonald theory, and quiver polynomials, Soergel bimodules, Hodge theory of matroids. These are trends in a rapidly developing area, and our aim is to facilitate interactions among researchers who work on different problems but employ similar techniques, at the intersection of algebraic geometry, combinatorics, and representation theory.

Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Conformal geometry is the study of properties of spaces and mappings which depend on the measurement of angles but not of lengths. An example is the stereographic projection mapping from a sphere to a plane, which distorts lengths but preserves angles. Mathematicians have made much progress in recent years in the study of conformal geometry by using and developing new tools and methods from a variety of mathematical fields, including analysis, non-linear PDE and topology. This workshop will bring together experts from a variety of mathematical backgrounds with the goal of furthering our understanding of conformal geometry and its complex number analogue, CR geometry.

20 Jun 2021 - 25 Jun 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
A mathematical knot can be thought of as a piece of knotted string with ends attached. This knotted circle is allowed to move freely in space as long as it does not pass through itself. In recent years the study of knots has gained momentum through a series of applications, for instance in physics and in molecular biology. Such applications bring new urgency to certain classical questions pertaining to knots and how they sit inside 3-dimensional space. Much like a knotted wand dipped into liquid soap will bound a bubble, mathematical knots sitting in 3-dimensional space bound surfaces. Studying pairs of the form (knot, surface) sitting in 3-dimensional space rather than just knots, provides additional structure to better grasp basic questions, such as whether or not a given knot can be untangled and if so how.

Fundamental Groups and their Representations in Arithmetic Geometry
04 Jul 2021 - 09 Jul 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
In arithmetic geometry, one studies solutions to polynomial equations defined with arithmetically interesting coefficients, such as integers or rational numbers. One way to study such objects, which has seen tremendous success in the last several decades, is by investigating their symmetries. Quite surprisingly, in several interesting situations, many of the geometric and arithmetic properties of the objects in question are actually controlled by the object’s symmetries.

Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
There is an age-old relationship between arithmetic and geometry, going back at least to Euclid's Elements. Historically, it has usually been geometry that has been used to enrich our understanding of arithmetic, but the purpose of this workshop is to study the flow of information in the other direction. Namely, how can arithmetic enhance our understanding of geometry? This meeting will bring together researchers from both sides of the partnership, to explore ways to bind the two fields ever closer together.

Arithmetic Aspects of Deformation Theory
18 Jul 2021 - 23 Jul 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
One focus of modern number theory is to study symmetries of numbers that are roots of polynomial equations. Collections of such symmetries are called Galois groups, and they often encode interesting arithmetical information. The theory of Galois representations provides a way to understand these Galois groups and in particular, how they interact with other areas of mathematics. This workshop will investigate how these Galois representations can be put together into families, and search for new arithmetic applications of these families.

AV-EAST-2020 — Affine Varieties: Embeddings, Automorphisms, Structure and Topology
26 Jul 2021 - 30 Jul 2021 • Saint Petersburg, Russia
Organizer:
The Euler International Mathematical Institute, Saint Petersburg
Abstract:
Affine algebraic geometry studies algebraic subvarieties of complex affine space C^n. A major contributor to this field in the following generation is Shulim Kaliman, whose work this conference is intended to honor on the occasion of his 70th birthday. The conference will feature 10-12 prominent plenary speakers from among Kaliman's research colleagues, such as Mikhail Zaidenberg, with additional talks that include younger researchers. Kaliman's work draws from an impressive range of tools, not only in algebra and geometry but also in topology and analysis. The title of the conference reflects this: the embeddings, automorphisms, structure and topology of affine varieties are themes running throughout Kaliman's work. The talks will focus on current trends within these themes, and will not only bring together active researchers in the field but will also seek to engage students and early career researchers in the study of affine algebraic geometry.

Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups: Geometric and Computational Viewpoints
03 Oct 2021 - 08 Oct 2021 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The focus of this meeting is the connections between lattices and number theory and geometry. Number theory, one of the oldest branches of pure mathematics, is devoted to the study properties of the integers and more sophisticated number systems. Lattices and number theory have many deep connections. For instance using number theory it was recently demonstrated that certain packings of balls in high dimensions are optimally efficient. Lattices also appear naturally when one studies certain spaces that play an important role in number theory; one of the main focuses of this meeting is to investigate computational and theoretical methods to understand such spaces and to expand the frontier of our algorithmic knowledge in working with them.

Interaction Between Partial Differential Equations and Convex Geometry
17 Oct 2021 - 22 Oct 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Convex geometry and partial differential equations are two important mathematical branches. A constantly growing interaction between them in the last decades has resulted in significant progress in both areas. The goal is to solve questions in analysis, by combining the (affine) geometry of convex bodies and methods from partial differential equations, in particular, Monge-Ampere type equations. First major results include affine inequalities that are stronger than their Euclidean counterparts. Applications appear in information theory, probability theory and stochastic geometry.
