Courbure négative et courbure négative ou nulle en théorie des groupes — Aspects of Non-Positive and Negative Curvature in Group Theory
17 Jun 2019 - 21 Jun 2019 • CIRM – Luminy, France
Organizer:
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Abstract:
This conference will focus on applications of non-positive and negative curvature to geometric group theory. The most well known examples of this are δ-hyperbolic and CAT(0)-groups. More recently, some of the techniques that have been used to study these groups have been imported to study groups that have some features of negative curvature but aren’t themselves negatively curved. For example, the mapping class group is neither δ-hyperbolic nor CAT(0) but major progress has been obtained in on our understanding of this group by studying its action on the δ-hyperbolic curve complex. A related group is Out(Fn), the group of automorphisms of the rank n free group and similar program is underway to understand it. More generally, large classes of groups have been identified that have certain features of negative curvature and this has been exploited to prove results which were heretofore only known in special cases.

Quantum Symmetries
24 Jun 2019 - 05 Jul 2019 • Bogotá D.C, Colombia
Abstract:
The notion of a group describes symmetry in mathematics. In recent decades, certain quantum mathematical objects have appeared whose symmetries are better described by group-like objects called tensor categories. Examples of areas of mathematics where tensor categories play a key role include subfactors, quantum groups, Hopf algebras, quantum topology and topological quantum computation. The aim of the school is to introduce graduate students to tensor category theory and their applications to Topological Quantum Field theory, Subfactor theory, and Hopf algebras.

IHES summer school on aspects of geometric group theory
08 Jul 2019 - 19 Jul 2019 • Bures-sur-Yvette, France
Abstract:
A group is a mathematical object encoding natural notions of symmetries and transformations. Geometric group theory is an area in mathematics devoted to the study of discrete groups by exploring connections between algebraic properties of such groups and topological and geometric properties of spaces on which these groups act.

As a distinct area, geometric group theory is relatively new, and became an identifiable branch of mathematics in the early 1990's. Geometric group theory closely interacts with low-dimensional topology, hyperbolic geometry, Lie groups and homogeneous spaces, algebraic topology, computational group theory, and differential geometry. There are also substantial connections with complexity theory, mathematical logic, dynamical systems, probability theory, K-theory, and other areas of mathematics.

Topics:
This is an IHES Summer School, organized in partnership with the Clay Mathematical Institute, and the support of the Société Générale, the FMJH, the IUF, the ANR GAMME, the project Jeunes Géomètres and the ERC.

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.

Organizer:
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Abstract:
The aim of the summer school is to gather young researchers arising from a quite wide mathematical area in order to build knowledge in two complementary fundamental theories. The first one is Bruhat-Tits theory which deals with the Euclidean buildings and integral models of reductive algebraic groups defined over a local field, the second one is the theory of Affine Grassmannians which are geometric objects arising from Representation Theory.

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.
