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.

Workshop — Hot Topics: Regularity Theory for Minimal Surfaces and Mean Curvature Flow
21 Mar 2022 - 25 Mar 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
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.

Workshop — Introductory Workshop: Floer Homotopy Theory
12 Sep 2022 - 17 Sep 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
Abstract:
Over the last decade, there has been a wealth of new applications of homotopy-theoretic techniques to Floer homology in low-dimensional topology and symplectic geometry, including Manolescu’s disproof of the high-dimensional Triangulation Conjecture and Abouzaid-Blumberg’s proof of the Arnol’d Conjecture in finite characteristic. Conversely, results in Floer theory and categorification have opened new directions of research in homotopy theory, from string topology to S-Lie algebras. The goal of this workshop is to introduce researchers in Floer theory to modern techniques and questions in homotopy theory and, conversely, introduce researchers in homotopy theory to ideas underlying Floer theory and its applications.
