Monodromy and Galois groups in enumerative geometry and applications
31 Aug 2020 - 02 Sep 2020 • WORKSHOP ONLY OFFERED VIRTUALLY, United States
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.

AIM Workshop: Global rigidity of actions by higher-rank groups
12 Jul 2021 - 16 Jul 2021 • San Jose, United States
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to actions of higher rank groups. The general theme is the global rigidity or classification of such actions (at times satisfying additional dynamical hypotheses) up to smooth changes of coordinates.
