Summer Graduate School — Random Conformal Geometry
19 Jul 2021 - 30 Sep 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
MRSI – Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley
Abstract:
This Summer Graduate School will cover basic tools that are instrumental in Random Conformal Geometry (the investigation of analytic and geometric objects that arise from natural probabilistic constructions, often motivated by models in mathematical physics) and are at the foundation of the subsequent semester-long program "The Analysis and Geometry of Random Spaces". Specific topics are Conformal Field Theory, Brownian Loops and related processes, Quasiconformal Maps, as well as Loewner Energy and Teichmüller Theory.

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.

Connections Workshop: The Analysis and Geometry of Random Spaces
20 Jan 2022 - 21 Jan 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
The Connections Workshop will feature talks on a variety of topics related to the analysis and geometry of random spaces. It will preview the research themes of the semester program and will highlight the work of women in the field. There will be a panel discussion as well as other social events. This workshop is directly prior to the Introductory Workshop, and participants are encouraged to participate in both workshops. This workshop is open to all mathematicians.

Introductory Workshop: The Analysis and Geometry of Random Spaces
24 Jan 2022 - 28 Jan 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
This workshop will introduce some of the major themes in probability and geometric analysis that will be relevant for the semester-long program. A series of short mini-courses will give participants the opportunity to learn about important subjects such as the Schramm-Loewner evolution (SLE) or the Gaussian free field (GFF), for example. The workshop will also include "visionary" lectures by prominent researchers who will outline fruitful directions for future research.

Braids in Low-Dimensional Topology
25 Apr 2022 - 29 Apr 2022 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Braids are deeply entwined with low-dimensional topology. Closed braids are knots and links, while viewing braid groups as surface mapping class groups connects the topic to fundamental constructions of three- and four-manifolds. The question of how properties of braids or mapping classes reflect the associated manifolds arises in Dehn surgery, link invariants, and contact and symplectic geometry. The workshop will highlight recent advances in these and other areas of low-dimensional topology where braids and mapping classes play a significant role. The workshop will also explore related algorithms, with an eye towards their (efficient) implementation.
