Differential Geometry (DG)
ID
748432
Dates
11 Jan 2016 - 20 May 2016
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Differential geometry is a subject with both deep roots and recent advances. Many old problems in the field have recently been solved, such as the Poincar� and geometrization conjectures by Perelman, the quarter pinching conjecture by Brendle-Schoen, the Lawson Conjecture by Brendle, and the Willmore Conjecture by Marques-Neves. The solutions of these problems have introduced a wealth of new techniques into the field. This semester-long program will focus on the following main themes: (1) Einstein metrics and generalizations, (2) Complex differential geometry, (3) Spaces with curvature bounded from below, (4) Geometric flows, and particularly on the deep connections between these areas.

Fractal Geometry, Hyperbolic Dynamics and Thermodynamical Formalism
ID
704890
Dates
07 Mar 2016 - 11 Mar 2016
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
A surprising discovery of 20th century mathematics is that many deterministic systems exhibit random behavior. One of an early examples of chaotic system was Lorenz equation used by meteorologist Edward Lorenz as a simplified model of atmospheric convection. One of the most common mechanisms of stochasticity is the Smale horseshoe appearing near a homoclinic intersection.

The Lorentz attractor and Smale horseshoe are typical examples of fractal invariant sets for dynamical systems. Fractal objects are ubiquitous in dynamics, including invariant sets, invariant measures, invariant foliations et cetera.

Thermodynamical formalism is a powerful tool for studying dimensions of fractal objects. It originated in statistical mechanics, but currently it has applications to many area of mathematics including spectral theory, hyperbolic geometry and probability theory.

The goal of this conference is to bring together experts studying fractal objects in dynamics in order to review recent progress in the field and catalyze further research.

ICERM Workshop: Effective and Algorithmic Methods in Hyperbolic Geometry and Free Groups
ID
749664
Dates
16 May 2016 - 20 May 2016
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
The recent proof of Thurston's virtual fibering conjecture brought together tools at the forefront of geometric group theory, dynamics, and hyperbolic geometry. We still lack, however, an effective or constructive understanding of three-dimensional hyperbolic geometry, and more generally, 3-manifold topology. For example, a closed hyperbolic 3-manifold admits a finite cover which fibers over the circle, but can one construct such a cover from a presentation of the fundamental group? Can one implement an algorithm -- perhaps with the help of preexisting software such as SnapPea -- to obtain such a cover? While much work remains, both computation and theory have progressed. Fast algorithms have been developed for running computations in the mapping class group and other finitely generated groups, as well as for recognizing certain types 3-manifolds and knot and link complements up to homeomorphism. These have been supplemented by a new wave of constructive theorems which explicitly relate the algebra of the fundamental group of a hyperbolic 3-manifold to its geometry, and to the geometry of various simplicial complexes, such as the curve complex. This ICERM workshop will focus on such advances, as well as on the development of new algorithms and extension of algorithmic techniques to the study of free groups. The workshop aims to bring together researchers from a broad range of related fields to work towards a more effective and quantitative understanding of 3-manifold topology, geometric group theory, and hyperbolic geometry.

London Mathematical Society -- EPSRC Durham Symposium Geometric and Algebraic Aspects of Integrability
ID

Dates
25 Jul 2016 - 04 Aug 2016
Location
Durham, United Kingdom
Abstract
The history of integrable systems goes back to 19th century work in classical mechanics, differential geometry, complex analysis, differential equations and nonlinear special functions. The modern theory is grew up around the study of KdV type equations, following the discovery of multi-soliton solutions, infinite number of conservation laws and the Inverse Scattering Transform in the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1980s new ideas came via integrable field theories and connections with harmonic maps and differential geometry were re-established. Links with other areas of mathematics - algebraic geometry, twistor theory, self-duality, representation theory, number theory, enumerative geometry, Gromov-Witten theory and Topological Quantum Field Theories grew in the 1990s and through into the 21st Century. The aim of the Symposium is to bring together leading international researchers in the various sub-fields of integrable systems, concentrating primarily on the mathematical aspects of the theory.

ICERM Workshop: Cycles on Moduli Spaces, Geometric Invariant Theory, and Dynamics
ID
749682
Dates
01 Aug 2016 - 05 Aug 2016
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
A moduli space parameterizes geometric objects with alike structures and encodes in itself the geometry of all possible families of such objects. This workshop will focus on three aspects of moduli spaces: Cycles, Geometric Invariant Theory, and Dynamics. One of our main goals is to synthesize the recent progress on moduli of abelian di?erentials on algebraic curves motivated by dynamics and in the GIT constructions of related moduli spaces, with the view towards better understanding of geometric cycles on these moduli spaces. In many cases, computer programming and experiments are important tools to discover new phenomena, both in dynamics and in the study of cycles on moduli spaces. Hence many talks will emphasize computational and experimental aspects of these ?elds and the workshop will feature a computational problem session whose goal is to disseminate computational techniques and problems to a wider body of researchers.

Computer-based methods for the capture, construction, representation, fitting, interrogation and manipulation of complicated surfaces have led to a wide interest in, and need for, the mathematics of surfaces and related topics including curves, motions and computational geometry. Many applications require the use of surface descriptions, especially in such fields as computer aided design and manufacturing, isogeometric analysis, computer graphics, computer vision and computer animation.

Workshop: Stochastic Topology and Thermodynamic Limits
ID
734387
Dates
17 Oct 2016 - 21 Oct 2016
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
This workshop will explore topological properties of random and quasi-random phenomena in physical systems, stochastic simulations/processes, as well as optimization algorithms. Practitioners in these fields have written a great deal of simulation code to help understand the configurations and scaling limits of both the physically observed and computational phenomena. However, mathematically rigorous theories to support the simulation results and to explain their limiting behavior are still in their infancy.

Randomness is inherent to models of the physical, biological, and social world. Random topology models are important in a variety of complicated models including quantum gravity and black holes, filaments of dark matter in astronomy, spatial statistics, and morphological models of shapes, as well as models appearing in social media. The probabilistic method, theory of point processes, and ideas from stochastic and integral geometry have been central tools for proofs and efficient algorithms to measure topological quantities, such as Betti numbers of random geometric complexes.

The workshop topics include: random simplicial complexes, topological invariants in Gaussian random fields, and topological aspects of phase transitions, and geometry and topology of hard disks. A major theme of this workshop will center around computational issues and numerical experiments based on existing models and implementations.

Workshop: Topology and Geometry in a Discrete Setting
ID
734386
Dates
28 Nov 2016 - 02 Dec 2016
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
Many theorems in discrete geometry may be interpreted as relatives or combinatorial analogues of results on concentration of maps and measures. Configuration spaces of mixed combinatorial/geometric nature, such as arrangements of points, lines, convex polytopes, decorated trees, graphs, and partitions, often arise via the Configuration Space/Test Maps scheme, as spaces parameterizing feasible candidates for the solution of a problem in discrete geometry. One of the basic ideas is to link the key questions of social sciences dealing with fair allocations, such as the existence of certain Nash equilibria, equipartitions, or balanced configurations, with the existence of partitions of point sets satisfying some geometric constraints. In both contexts, combinatorial and geometric aspects of Fourier analysis on finite groups arise naturally.

This workshop focuses on building bridges - by developing a unified point of view and by emphasizing cross-fertilization of ideas and techniques from geometry, topology and combinatorics. New experimental evidence is crucial to this goal. The workshop emphasizes the computational and algorithmic aspects of the problems in topics including: Concentration of maps and isoperimetry of waists in discrete setting, configuration Space/Test Map scheme and theorems of Tverbeg type, Equipartitions of measures, social choice, van Kampen-Haefliger-Weber theory for maps of simplicial complexes, combinatorics of homotopy colimits, and discrete Morse theory.
