FHT – Program — Floer Homotopy Theory
15 Aug 2022 - 16 Dec 2022 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
MRSI – Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley
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.

Excursions in Arithmetic Geometry
04 Jan 2023 - 07 Jan 2023 • Boston, United States
Organizer:
American Mathematical Society
Abstract:
Diophantine equations are systems of polynomial equations solved over integers or rational numbers. Diophantine geometry is the study of Diophantine equations using ideas and techniques from algebraic geometry. It is one of the oldest subjects of mathematics and the most popular part of number theory connecting it to algebraic geometry.

The goal of this session is to explore recent developments in the theory of arithmetic geometry and with special focus on curves and Jacobian varieties. We intend to bring together mathematicians, working on this area of research, from the USA and from Europe encouraging further cooperation and discussion. We will especially encourage younger mathematicians and graduate students and newcomers in the area.

Gravity from algebra: modern field theory methods for holography
23 Jan 2023 - 26 Jan 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The last several years have seen rapid development of a new language for conformal field theory(CFT), including insights from the conformal bootstrap program. This conference will bring to bear the modern arsenal of conformal field theory on the foundations of holography and quantum gravity. A theme of the conference will be the extent to which consistency conditions on quantum gravity are inherited from those of CFT, and whether they naturally lead to string/M-theory. By bringing together scientists on both sides of holographic duality, we hope to explore these issues in a broad way.Topics to be covered include large N bootstrap and the structure of holographic CFTs dual to general relativity; CFT sum rules and gravitational effective field theory; aspects of supersymmetry in holography; low-dimensional holography, modularity and quantum chaos; black holes from strongly-coupled finite temperature physics; symmetry constraints on gravitational path integrals and AdS vacua; S-matrices, their relation to CFT correlators, and holography away from AdS.

AIM Workshop: Cluster algebras and braid varieties
23 Jan 2023 - 27 Jan 2023 • San Jose, California, United States
Organizer:
American Institute of Mathematics (AIM)
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the study of cluster algebras and their relation to symplectic geometry, bringing together people with expertise in these two fields. In recent years deep and intriguing connections between these two areas have been discovered, including the existence of cluster structures on moduli spaces of Lagrangian fillings, the cluster compatibility of Poisson structures on wild character varieties, the cluster algebras associated to plane curve singularities, and the cluster nature of spectral networks. This bridge between cluster algebras and symplectic geometry is proving fruitful in both directions and a central aim of the workshop is to crystalize those connections and bring forward further applications.

Algebraic Geometry in Spectral Theory
24 Feb 2023 - 26 Feb 2023 • Providence, Rhode Island, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Discrete periodic Schrodinger operators describe the behavior of individual electrons in "ideal" crystals in the tight-binding model of solid state physics. Spectra of such operators have the usual band-gap structure, and the corresponding dispersion relations are algebraic varieties. In the 1990's Gieseker, Knorrer, and Trubowitz used toroidal compactifications to solve questions such as irreducibility of Bloch and Fermi varieties and the density of states, for a class of mono-atomic models. Their work showed that while spectral theory is focused on the real part of the Bloch variety, the study of complex singularities and compactifications is crucial for describing formation of bands and gaps. After a gap of 30 years, spectral theory is again interacting with algebraic geometry. Recently, W. Liu gave an algebraic method to obtain more general proofs of irreducibility for Fermi surfaces, Kravaris used free resolutions to study density of states, and Kuchment and coauthors used toric varieties and numerical nonlinear algebra to study spectral edges. These and other developments have led to the realization that many open questions in spectral theory may be studied using modern tools in algebraic geometry. These include the relation of reducibility/irreducibility with physical symmetries of the crystals, the structure of spectral band edges, and Dirac cones. These methods can also be applied to quantum graphs, such as graphene-type structures, and to obtain existence and non-existence theorems for embedded eigenvalues. The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from spectral theory, mathematical physics, and algebraic geometry to understand, apply, and advance these new methods and interactions. A significant aspect of these reemerging interactions involves computation. A key recent development in algebraic geometry is computation, both symbolic and numerical. Computation and experimentation using tools from algebraic geometry have already been important in two recent papers by Sottile on this subject, and we expect it to become a useful tool for studying periodic operators. Speakers in this workshop are firmly rooted in the uses of computation and experimentation in applications of Algebraic Geometry, and many are familiar with exploiting the atmosphere and facilities of the ICERM to initiate collaboration.

AIM Workshop: Discrete and combinatorial homotopy theory
13 Mar 2023 - 17 Mar 2023 • San Jose, California, United States
Organizer:
American Institute of Mathematics (AIM)
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to homotopy theories developed for the study of discrete and combinatorial objects. Many different models of discrete homotopy have emerged in the past 20-30 years, developed largely in isolation from one another. In this workshop, we will study different perspectives on discrete homotopy and explore their connections and differences. Among our goals is to identify important applications, particularly to combinatorics, metric geometry, and geometric group theory. We will also investigate how ideas from abstract homotopy theory (model categories, simplicial and cubical homotopy, infinity categories, etc.) may be used to extend and consolidate the theories.
Topics:
The main topics of this workshop are: A-theory of graphs and simplicial complexes; Homotopy of digraphs; Digital homotopy ; Discrete homotopy of metric spaces; Homotopy theory in topological categories; Applications of abstract homotopy theory to discrete homotopy; Applications of discrete homotopy to combinatorics, metric geometry, geometric group theory, and other areas.

Workshop — Degeneracy of algebraic points
17 Apr 2023 - 21 Apr 2023 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
CIRM - Jean-Morlet Chair
Abstract:
In recent years, a number of techniques have led to outstanding progress on Lang-Vojta conjectures, such as the Subspace Theorem, p-adic approaches to finiteness, and modular methods. Similarly, spectacular progress has been achieved on unlikely intersection conjectures thanks to new methods and tools, such as height formulas for special points, connections to model theory, refined counting results, and new theorems of Ax-Shanuel type (bi-algebraic geometry). The goal of this workshop is to create the opportunity for these two groups to interact, to share their techniques, to update on the most recent progress, and to attack the outstanding open questions in the field.

Degeneracy of algebraic points
17 Apr 2023 - 21 Apr 2023 • MSRI, Berkeley, CA, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
Abstract:
A central topic in Diophantine Geometry is to understand how the geometry of a variety influences the arithmetic of its algebraic points, and conversely. Conjectures of Bombieri, Lang, and Vojta suggest that rational points of algebraic varieties satisfying suitable approximation conditions, are algebraically degenerate. On the other hand, conjectures on unlikely intersections suggest that algebraic points of special type —e.g. torsion points in semi-abelian varieties, special points in Shimura varieties— avoid subvarieties, unless the subvariety itself is also special (in a technical sense). In recent years, a number of techniques have led to outstanding progress on Lang-Vojta conjectures, such as the Subspace Theorem, p-adic approaches to finiteness, and modular methods. Similarly, spectacular progress has been achieved on unlikely intersection conjectures thanks to new methods and tools, such as height formulas for special points, connections to model theory, refined counting results, and new theorems of Ax-Shanuel type (bi-algebraic geometry). The goal of this workshop is to create the opportunity for these two groups to interact, to share their techniques, to update on the most recent progress, and to attack the outstanding open questions in the field.

Workshop — MIP* = RE and the Connes’ Embedding Problem
08 May 2023 - 12 May 2023 • MSRI, Berkeley, CA, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
This workshop is about the recent MIP*=RE result from quantum computational complexity, and the resulting resolution of the Connes embedding problem from the theory of von Neumann algebras. MIP*=RE connects the disparate areas of computational complexity theory, quantum information, operator algebras, and approximate representation theory. The techniques used in the proof of MIP*=RE, such as self-testing and probabilistically checkable proofs, are well-known in theoretical computer science and quantum information, but are unfortunately completely foreign in operator algebras and approximate representation theory. Likewise, the tools of operator algebras and approximate representation theory are mostly unfamiliar in theoretical computer science and quantum information. This has made it challenging to translate the MIP*=RE result and the techniques used to prove it into a form digestible to operator algebraists. The aim of this workshop is to bridge this divide, by giving an in-depth exposition of the techniques used in the proof of MIP*=RE, and highlighting perspectives on the MIP*=RE result from operator algebras and approximate representation theory. In particular, this workshop will highlight connections with group stability, something that has not been covered in previous workshops. In addition to increasing understanding of the MIP*=RE proof, we hope that this will open up further applications of the ideas behind MIP*=RE in operator algebras.

AIM Workshop: From ℵ2 to infinity
15 May 2023 - 19 May 2023 • San Jose, California, United States
Organizer:
American Institute of Mathematics (AIM)
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, is devoted to combinatorial problems about infinite cardinals. There are two types of infinite cardinals to investigate: successors of regular cardinals, most notably ℵ2, and successors of singular cardinals, for example ℵω+1ω+1. The workshop will focus on combinatorial principles such as the tree property, stationary reflection and the effect of consequences on forcing axioms on cardinal arithmetic, in particular what implications they have on the continuum, and the singular cardinal hypothesis (SCH).
Topics:
The main topics of the workshop are The tree property, its strengthening ITP, stationary reflection how these combinatorial principles interact with SCH; Which consequences of PFA and MM require the continuum to be ℵ2 , and more generally, their effect on cardinal arithmetic; Forcing techniques such as proper iterated forcing and Prikry type forcing.

Tangled in Knot Theory
22 May 2023 - 25 May 2023 • Providence, Rhode Island, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
In spite of their omnipresence and importance, a number of questions about knots remain elusive. Addressing them solicits techniques from a range of mathematical disciplines at the interface of algebra, analysis, geometry, modeling, and low-dimensional topology. Some of the most exciting recent avenues of research include optimizing geometry, quantum knot invariants, and applications in material sciences, physics, and molecular biology. This workshop emphasizes bridging the gap between theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches in knot theory and its applications, including artificial intelligence.
