1.Geometric Representation Theory 
Dates  18 Aug 2014 → 19 Dec 2014  [ID=553792] 
Location  Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States 
Abstract  The fundamental aims of geometric representation theory are to uncover the deeper geometric and categorical structures underlying the familiar objects of representation theory and harmonic analysis, and to apply the resulting insights to the resolution of classical problems. One of the main sources of inspiration for the field is the Langlands philosophy, a vast nonabelian generalization of the Fourier transform of classical harmonic analysis, which serves as a visionary roadmap for the subject and places it at the heart of number theory. A primary goal of the proposed MSRI program is to explore the potential impact of geometric methods and ideas in the Langlands program by bringing together researchers working in the diverse areas impacted by the Langlands philosophy, with a particular emphasis on representation theory over local fields.

6.Inverse Moment Problems: The Crossroads of Analysis, Algebra, Discrete Geometry and Combinatorics 
Dates  11 Nov 2014 → 25 Jan 2015  [ID=553514] 
Location  Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National Univ, Singapore 
Abstract  Applications of moments of measures in polynomial optimization led to a number of breakthroughs in optimization and real algebraic geometry, as well as to better understanding of ways to encode measures. Other similar threads are recently seen in the theory of integration on polytopes and counting of integer points in polytopes, as well as in quantum computing. The aim of the program is to futher investigate relations between these topics and inverse moment problems, i.e., questions of reconstructing measures from a set of its moments, which are traditionally attacked by purely analytic tools. Activities will include two 45 day research conferences, one quantum computing workshop, and one graduate student winter school/workshops.

8.Automorphic forms, Shimura varieties, Galois representations and Lfunctions 
Dates  01 Dec 2014 → 05 Dec 2014  [ID=553774] 
Location  Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States 
Abstract  Lfunctions attached to Galois representations coming from algebraic geometry contain subtle arithmetic information (conjectures of Birch and SwinnertonDyer, Deligne, Beilinson, Bloch and Kato, Fontaine and PerrinRiou). Langlands has predicted the existence of a correspondence relating these Lfunctions to Lfunctions of automorphic forms which are much better understood. The workshop will focus on recent developments related to Langlands correspondence (construction of Galois representations attached to automorphic forms via the cohomology of Shimura varieties, modularity of Galois representations...) and arithmetic of special values of Lfunctions. It will be dedicated to Michael Harris as a tribute to his enormous influence on the themes of the workshop.

At the beginning of the programme, there will be a twoweek long instructional conference with six minicourses of about ten lectures each, which will be designed for students and nonspecialists. Further there will be three workshops evenly spread over the period of the programme to cover more advanced results, each centred on one of the main themes. Several workshops will take place during the programme. For full details please see http://www.newton.ac.uk/events.html .

Dates  05 Jul 2015 → 12 Jul 2015  [ID=657676] 
Location  Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal Universit, India 
Abstract  Algebra is often described as the language of mathematics. Historically, the terms algebra and algorithm originate from the same source. The theory of nearrings is now a sophisticated theory in algebra. The connections between nearrings (especially nearfields) and geometry are wellknown. There will be plenary talks, invited talks, and short communication sessions. In addition there will be few special sessions on algebra. Nearring conferences are held approximately every two years to discuss new ideas, share results and identify new trends. The conferences were held previously in countries namely Germany, Italy, USA, UK, Canada, South Africa, Austria etc, starting from the year 1968. In Asia the conference took place earlier in India (in the year 1985) and in Taiwan (in the year 2005).

Abstract  During the semester we will focus on three specific aspects of the Langlands program.

Second, we will consider computational aspects of modular forms in higher rank. Specifically, we will examine K3 surfaces and their connections to modular forms on orthogonal groups. Our third topic concerns analytic aspects of Lfunctions, building upon and complementing the algebraic, arithmetic, and geometric data.

Dates  28 Dec 2015 → 30 Dec 2015  [ID=657727] 
Location  Sanya, Hainan, China 
Abstract  There are only a few mathematicians in the history whose works and questions are still intensively studied after 150 years by many people in the original form and are continuing to provide inspiration to generations to come. Bernhard Riemann is one such mathematician. It is rare, however, that a hundred years after a man's work, his ideas and methods are learnt and used by people in the field in essentially the same form in which he left them. His work has been analyzed, amplified and generalized in many ways in many fields, but a good part of his mathematical output has withstood the test of time and the search for new perspectives remarkably well. This is not to imply that new perspectives have not been found but simply that in many instances, Riemann's own approach has not been superseded definitely.To help the mathematics community to understand better the work of Riemann and its impact, Professor S.T. Yau and several of us are launching one book project with the title: The legacy of Bernhard Riemann after one hundred and fifty years. It will consist of systematic contributions by leading experts around the world on subjects or topics influenced by Riemann.

48.String Mathematics 2015 
Dates  31 Dec 2015 → 04 Jan 2016  [ID=657758] 
Location  Sanya, Hainan, China 
Abstract  String theory plays a central role in theoretical physics as a candidate for the quantum theory unifying gravity with other interactions. It has profound connections with broad branches of modern mathematics ever since the birth. In the last decades, the prosperous interaction, built upon the joint efforts from both mathematicians and physicists, has given rise to marvelous deep results in supersymmetric gauge theory, topological string, Mtheory and duality on the physics side as well as in algebraic geometry, differential geometry, algebraic topology, representation theory and number theory on the mathematics side. The interplay is twofold. The mathematics has provided powerful tools to fulfill the physical interconnection of ideas and clarify physical structures to understand the nature of string theory. On the other hand, ideas from string theory and quantum field theory have been a source of significant inspirations to reveal surprising mathematical structures and create new spectrums of mathematics. The aim of the StringMath annual conference is to bring together researchers working at the rapidly developing interface of these two academic fields to exchange current significant ideas and explore future directions.
