Summer Graduate School — Sparsity of Algebraic Points
07 Jun 2021 - 18 Jul 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
MRSI – Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley
Abstract:
This summer school will introduce the participants to two of the main techniques in the subject: (i) the filtration method to prove algebraic degeneracy of integral points by means of the subspace theorem, leading to special cases of conjectures by Bombieri, Lang, and Vojta, and (ii) unlikely intersections through o-minimality and bi-algebraic geometry, leading to results in the context of the Manin-Mumford conjecture, the André-Oort conjecture, and generalizations. This SGS should provide an entry point to a very active research area in modern number theory.

Computational Aspects of Discrete Subgroups of Lie Groups
14 Jun 2021 - 18 Jun 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
This workshop is at the interface of algebra, geometry, and computer science. The major theme deals with a novel domain of computational algebra: the design, implementation, and application of algorithms based on matrix representations of groups and their geometric properties. The setting of linear Lie groups is amenable to calculation and modeling transformations, thus providing a bridge between algebra and its applications. The main goal of the proposed workshop is to synergize and synthesize the independent strands in the area of computational aspects of discrete subgroups of Lie groups. We aim to facilitate solutions of theoretical problems by means of recent advances in computational algebra and additionally stimulate development of computational algebra oriented to other mathematical disciplines and applications.

Abstract:
The goal of the summer school is to introduce students to the foundational aspects of gauge theory, and explore their relations to geometric analysis and low-dimensional topology. By the end of the two-week program, the students will understand the relevant analytic and geometric aspects of several partial differential equations of current interest (including the Yang-Mills ASD equations, the Seiberg-Witten equations, and the Hitchin equations) and some of their most impactful applications to problems in geometry and topology.

D-modules, Group Actions, and Frobenius: Computing on Singularities
09 Aug 2021 - 13 Aug 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The adoption of D-module techniques has transformed the interface between commutative algebra and algebraic geometry over the last two decades. The discovery of interactions and parallels with the Frobenius morphism has been an impetus for many new results, include new invariants attached to singularities but also D- and F-module based algorithms for computing quantities that used to be unattainable. Our goal for this workshop is to discuss computational aspects and new challenges in singularity theory, focusing on special varieties that arise from group actions, canonical maps, or universal constructions. By bringing together geometers, algebraists, and invariant theorists, we will address problems from multiple perspectives. These will include comparisons of composition chains for D- and F-modules, the impact of group actions on singularity invariants, and the structure of differential operators on singularities in varying characteristics.

Foam Evaluation
05 Nov 2021 - 07 Nov 2021 • ICERM, Providence, United States
Abstract:
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together mathematicians interested in foams and their use in low-dimensional topology, representation theory, categorification, mathematical physics, and combinatorics. The workshop will focus on the foam evaluation formula and its applications. More concretely, we aim to: (a) Give a more intrinsic definition of the foam evaluation, in order, for instance, to find similar formulas for the other Lie types; (b) Understand the interplay between foams and matrix factorizations and further use foams for a unified and comprehensive approach to Khovanov-Rozansky link homology theories; (c) Compare combinatorial foam evaluation with the geometric structures and invariants coming from gauge theory and symplectic geometry; (d) Study potential applications of the foamy definition of link homology theories. This workshop is fully funded by a Simons Foundation Targeted Grant to Institutes.

The Analysis and Geometry of Random Spaces
18 Jan 2022 - 27 May 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
This program is devoted to the investigation of universal analytic and geometric objects that arise from natural probabilistic constructions, often motivated by models in mathematical physics. Prominent examples for recent developments are the Schramm-Loewner evolution, the continuum random tree, Bernoulli percolation on the integers, random surfaces produced by Liouville Quantum Gravity, and Jordan curves and dendrites obtained from random conformal weldings and laminations. The lack of regularity of these random structures often results in a failure of classical methods of analysis. One goal of this program is to enrich the analytic toolbox to better handle these rough structures.

Braids in symplectic and algebraic geometry
21 Mar 2022 - 25 Mar 2022 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Incarnations of braid groups, or generalizations thereof, naturally arise in a range of active research areas in symplectic and algebraic geometry. This is a rich and diverse ecosystem, and the workshop will aim to bring together speakers from all corners of it. A unifying theme is monodromy: one the one hand, generalized braid groups arise in symplectic and algebraic geometry as fundamental groups of moduli spaces, loosely construed -- for instance, of complements of discriminant loci of singularities or of hyperplane arrangements, or moduli spaces of deformations of complex or symplectic structures. On the other hand, monodromy ideas motivate representations of generalized braid groups as various flavors of geometric automorphisms -- for instance, as (framed) mapping class group elements, symplectic Dehn twists, spherical twists in derived categories, or flop functors for 3-folds. These perspectives lead in turn to a wide array of further geometric applications, from classifications of Stein fillings to the study of spaces of Bridgeland stability conditions.

From a community perspective, one aim of the workshop is to bring together mathematicians from adjacent research communities with a shared interest in braids as they arise in symplectic or algebraic geometry. We hope the conference will accelerate the cross-pollination of ideas, and help foster collaborations, at what is a very exciting time for the field. Much of this research also lies at an interface with other aspects of the thematic semester -- for instance, braids in representation theory (e.g. in connection with cluster algebras or Bridgeland stability conditions), or in low-dimensional topology (e.g. in connection with monodromies of open books) -- and many of the talks should be of interest to a broader set of semester participants.

Abstract:
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers whose work contributes to the study of random structures that exhibit some form of conformal self-similarity. Notable examples include the Schramm-Loewner evolution SLE, the Brownian map and random trees, Liouville Quantum Gravity, and Conformal Field Theory. A particular focus will be the discussion of analytic tools needed to address the challenges arising from the often rough underlying sets and spaces.

Program — Floer Homotopy Theory (FHT).
15 Aug 2022 - 16 Dec 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
The development of Floer theory in its early years can be seen as a parallel to the emergence of algebraic topology in the first half of the 20th century, going from counting invariants to homology groups, and beyond that to the construction of algebraic structures on these homology groups and their underlying chain complexes. In continuing work that started in the latter part of the 20th century, algebraic topologists and homotopy theorists have developed deep methods for refining these constructions, motivated in large part by the application of understanding the classification of manifolds. The goal of this program is to relate these developments to Floer theory with the dual aims of (i) making progress in understanding symplectic and low-dimensional topology, and (ii) providing a new set of geometrically motivated questions in homotopy theory.
