Stability in mirror symmetry
07 Dec 2020 - 11 Dec 2020 • San Jose, California, United States
Organizer:
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring together mathematicians from a variety of backgrounds to discuss a central problem in mirror symmetry: the existence of special Lagrangian submanifolds, and their holomorphic mirrors, stable vector bundles. These two classes of objects form a set of canonical geometric objects, described by fully nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), which play a central role in mirror symmetry. Dating back to work of Thomas-Yau, it has long been conjectured that the existence of solutions to these nonlinear PDEs is equivalent to a purely algebraic notion of stability. This conjectural picture connects diverse fields of mathematics, ranging from stability conditions on derived categories, to symplectic geometry and the Fukaya category, to the study of the Lagrangian mean curvature flow and fully nonlinear systems of PDEs.
Topics:
The central topics for the workshop are: The Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow, singularity analysis, and connections with the Fukaya category. The deformed Hermitian-Yang-Mills equation, infinite dimensional GIT, and fully nonlinear systems. Understanding the Thomas-Yau conjecture for toric Fano manifolds and Landau-Ginzburg models.

ATC2021 — Actions of Tensor Categories on C*-algebras
25 Jan 2021 - 29 Jan 2021 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), Los Angeles, United States
Abstract:
The overarching objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers at the interface of the rapidly developing areas of the structure and classification of C*-algebras and subfactor theory/tensor categories. Advanced minicourses (making up around half the workshop) will enable a rich dialogue between the two communities, and participants will leave with many new problems to explore, as well as deeper insights about how C*-algebraic and von Neumann algebraic techniques interact.

AIM Workshop: Computational mathematics in computer assisted proofs
24 May 2021 - 28 May 2021 • 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 use of computational mathematics in computer assisted proofs. There are an increasing number of famous conjectures and theorems that have recently been proven using computer assisted proofs. A highly incomplete list in alphabetical order includes the Dirac-Schwinger conjecture, the double bubble conjecture, Kepler's conjecture (Hilbert's 18th problem), Smale's 14th problem, the 290-theorem, the weak Goldbach conjecture etc. In many of these cases the proofs are based on using numerical computations with approximations, a technique that belongs to the field of computational mathematics and scientific computing rather than computer science.

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:
This workshop will explore connections between the regularity theory of minimal surfaces and of mean curvature flow. Recent breakthroughs have improved our understanding of singularity formation in both settings but the current research trends are becoming increasingly disparate. Experts from both areas will present their research and there will be ample free time to establish connections between the topics.

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.
