Monodromy and Galois groups in enumerative geometry and applications
31 Aug 2020 - 02 Sep 2020 • WORKSHOP ONLY OFFERED VIRTUALLY, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Galois groups encode the internal structure of field extensions. Less well-known is that (families) of systems of polynomial equations or geometric problems also have Galois groups that encode the internal structure of the equations or geometric problems. During the 2018 Fall program at the ICERM on Nonlinear Algebra, different groups of researchers who were studying or using Galois groups in their work became more aware of their related interests. This common thread connects recent work in enumerative geometry, statistics, computer vision, number theory, and numerical nonlinear algebra. Further connections have subsequently been realized to arithmetic enhancements of intersection theory and to random real algebraic geometry. This workshop will bring representatives of these research groups together to deepen these interactions and chart new research goals.

This workshop is fully funded by a Simons Foundation Targeted Grant to Institutes.

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.

Workshop — Periods and Branching Problems for Representations of Real, p-adic and Adelic Groups
18 Oct 2020 - 23 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:
Symmetries appear naturally in various areas of mathematics and the sciences, ranging from geometry, numbers, differential equations to quantum mechanics. The more symmetries there are, the better we can grasp the objects by group theoretic approaches. Branching problems investigate how a large symmetries break down into smaller ones, such as fusion rules, via a mathematical formulation using the language of representations and their restrictions. Branching problems have a history of study of over 80 years. In recent years there was an outburst of research activities focus- ing on the restriction of continuous symmetries in the infinite-dimensional cases, for which new geometric and analytic methods have been developed. We highlight branching problems of infinite-dimensional representations of real, p-adic and adelic reductive groups, the former carrying analytic features and the latter carrying number-theoretic features, which might lead us to a (conjecturally) unified phenomenon. A major goal of the Workshop is to capitalize on this momentum and to gather researchers from diverse mathematical disciplines to encourage new collaborations, and achieve progress in solving open questions in number theory, geometry and physics.

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.

ICMMP2021 — International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Physics
05 Apr 2021 - 09 Apr 2021 • Marrakech, Morocco
Abstract:
The conference will bring together leading experts and research scholars to exchange and share their experience and research results on all aspects of mathematical physics and to promote transference of knowledge at the crossroads of mathematics and physics. There will be plenary sessions (30 to 40min), short talks and posters for student presentations. The scope of the conference will be quite broad, including in particular the following topics: polyanalytic function theory, harmonic analysis, representation theory and quantization, Clifford analysis and applications, coherent states, time-frequency analysis and wavelets, orthogonal polynomials, special functions and q-analogues, Hopf algebras and quantum groups, geometric mechanics and symmetry, exact solvable systems, spectral theory and quantum systems, topological methods. With the goal of encouraging communication and collaborative research between the participants, a feature of ICMMP2021 will be the inclusion of specific time-slots for scientific discussion.

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.

Abstract:
The aim of this conference is to bring together experts and young researchers from various fields and communities in mathematics related to operator semigroups and linear evolution equations. The conference will also celebrate Charles Batty’s ongoing outstanding contributions to the theory of operator semigroups, C*-algebras and their relations to other areas of analysis. We expect there to be around 60 participants in the conference, about half of them early career researchers (Ph.D. students and postdocs).

Totally Disconnected Locally Compact Groups via Group Actions
15 Aug 2021 - 20 Aug 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Group actions are a mathematical approach to analysing structures by studying the rearrangements of the elements of the structure that preserve the defining properties of the structure. Indeed, historically, group theory developed primarily as a technique for handling questions concerning the resolution of algebraic equations (the group introduced here by Galois permutes the roots of the equation), and has since become a standard language for formalising and solving various natural questions from a wide range of mathematics.

Motives and Invariants: Theory and Applications to Algebraic Groups and their Torsors
03 Oct 2021 - 08 Oct 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:
In this workshop, we want to bring together researchers from both sides of this development: those mathematicians specializing in the application of modern algebraic and algebro-geometric methods to the study of algebraic groups and their torsors, as well as those working on relevant aspects of the motivic and cohomological approaches from a more abstract viewpoint. We hope that bringing this mix of researchers together will have a synergistic impact, leading to concrete new applications of the abstract machinery to outstanding problems on quadratic forms, algebras with involution and algebraic groups, but also inspiring progress on the general development of the motivic and cohomological methods.
