Summer School — Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory
27 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Evanston, IL, United States
Organizer:
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
Abstract:
The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.

Free Resolutions and Representation Theory
03 Aug 2020 - 07 Aug 2020 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The structure of free resolutions plays an important role in analyzing singularities of varieties of low codimension. Codimension two Cohen-Macaulay varieties (resp. codimension three Gorenstein varieties) come from rank conditions on an n x (n+1) matrix (resp. a skew-symmetric (2n+1) x (2n+1) matrix). This workshop seeks to push such results to Cohen-Macaulay varieties of codimension three and Gorenstein varieties of codimension four.

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.

Structure and randomness in locally symmetric spaces
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
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.

Sage/Oscar Days for Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry
15 Feb 2021 - 19 Feb 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on the development of software to facilitate research in combinatorial algebraic geometry, based on the SAGE Mathematical Software System and the OSCAR Computer Algebra System. Special attention will be given to efficient computations with multi-variate polynomials, which is a critical part of many algorithms in combinatorial algebraic geometry. Aside from development of software, the workshop will feature a series of talks about polynomial computations, as well as introductory lectures about Sage and Oscar.

Algebraic Geometry and Polyhedra
12 Apr 2021 - 16 Apr 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The workshop will revolve around the interplay between algebraic geometry and combinatorial structures such as graphs, polytopes, and polyhedral complexes. In particular, the workshop will foster dialogue among groups of researchers who use similar combinatorial geometric tools for different purposes within algebraic geometry and adjacent fields. The topics covered will include Newton-Okounkov bodies, Ehrhart theory, toric geometry, tropical geometry, matroids, and interactions with mirror symmetry.

Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on the integrable aspect of random matrix theory and other related probability models such as random tilings, directed polymers, and interacting particle systems. The emphasis is on communicating diverse algebraic structures in these areas which allow the asymptotic analysis possible. Some of such structures are determinantal point processes, Toeplitz and Hankel determinants, Bethe ansatz, Yang-Baxter equation, Karlin-McGregor formula, Macdonald process, and stochastic six vertex model.
