Combinatorics on Words and Tilings
ID
879888
Dates
27 Mar 2017 - 07 Apr 2017
Location
Entre de recherches mathématiques, Universit&, Canada
Abstract
The geometry of tilings has a long history going back to antiquity as patterns occurred in architecture (the Alhambra and Alcazar palaces in Spain, for instance) and decorative art (the drawings of Cornelius Escher). The seventeen wallpaper groups provide a classification of the periodic tessellations. In modern times, digital geometry emerged as a research domain dealing with discrete point sets aiming at transposing notions of classical euclidean geometry to the digital plane A—Z.

Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will focus on the continuing development of scheme-theoretic techniques in tropical geometry and their applications to broad questions in tropical geometry and algebraic geometry. Tropical scheme theory seeks to generalize the standard constructions in scheme theory to semirings, with the aim of providing algebraic and geometric foundations for tropical geometry. The goals of this workshop are to develop a common language and shared understanding of this developing theory and to explore applications.

AIM workshop — Engel structures
ID
815114
Dates
17 Apr 2017 - 21 Apr 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the emerging theory of Engel structures on four-manifolds, especially questions of rigidity versus flexibility, and its (potential) connections with contact topology, dynamics, and four-dimensional differential topology and gauge theory.

The main purpose of the workshop is to review some recent progress on the existence of Engel structures and to stimulate further research by bringing into focus geometrically interesting questions and by making connections to the modern theory of four-manifolds. With this goal in mind, the workshop will bring together people with different areas of expertise: those responsible for previous work on Engel structures, experts in contact topology and related topics, and experts on four-manifolds. Questions of a more dynamical flavor as well as questions pertaining to subriemannian geometry may also be discussed.

Algebraic and Geometric Combinatorics of Reflection Groups
ID

Dates
29 May 2017 - 05 Jun 2017
Location
Centre de recherches mathématiques, Universit, Canada
Abstract
This meeting will lie at the interface between algebraic and geometric combinatorial aspects of Coxeter groups and reflection groups. Reflection groups appear in very many domains of mathematics, for instance, - as symmetry groups of regular polytopes — as quotient of Artin-Tits (braid) groups — via root systems, as Weyl groups of semi-simple Lie algebras, Lie groups, algebraic groups, Kac-Moody algebras or cluster algebras and — as discrete reflection groups in geometric group theory.

Equivariant Combinatorics
ID
881159
Dates
10 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
Centre de recherches mathématiques, Universit, Canada
Abstract
Recent years have seen a remarkable expansion of profound interactions between Algebraic Combinatorics, Algebraic Geometry, and Algebraic Topology, exhibiting sometimes surprising ties to Theoretical Physics. These interactions involve objects such as: Operator Algebras on Symmetric Functions; Macdonald Symmetric Functions; Graded Representations of the Symmetric and General Linear Groups; Cohomology Rings of Grassmann and Flag Manifolds; Rational Cherednik Algebras; Representation Stability; etc. Even more recently, Rectangular Catalan Combinatorics has been developed in relation with several subjects covering a wide range of areas of mathematics, including: Representation Theory of the Sn-modules of Diagonal Harmonic Polynomials or Diagonal Coinvariant Spaces; Flag Bundles over the Hilbert Scheme of Points in the Plane (or higher dimension spaces); Affine Springer Fibres; Coloured Khovanov-Rozansky Homology of (m, n)-Torus Knots. Because of the intimate ties that all of these subjects share with algebraic combinatorics, and to underline that they typically involve actions of (perhaps deformed) groups, we have coined the term Equivariant Combinatorics to speak of them.

Groups and computation (Schupp conference)

26 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017
Location
Hoboken, New Jersey, United States
Abstract
The conference will be held from June 26th through June 30th 2017 at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Group theory, computability and algorithms have been inextricably intertwined since the fundamental papers of Max Dehn. The basis of all undecidability results in group theory and topology is the unsolvability of the word problem for finitely presented groups. There are many close links between group theory and automata theory and logic. The asymptotic-generic point of view of geometric group theory has recently led to new ideas in computational complexity and the theory of computability. This conference will explore several aspects of these connections.

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to topological modeling and analysis of biomolecules. A major feature of life sciences in the 21st century is their transformation from phenomenological and descriptive disciplines to quantitative and predictive ones. Revolutionary opportunities have emerged for mathematically driven advances in biological research. However, the emergence of excessive complexity in self-organizing biological systems poses fundamental challenges to their quantitative description. Dealing with the connectivity and transformation of different components in a space, topology provides a dramatic simplification of biomolecular data and sheds light on drug design, protein folding, organelle function, signaling, gene regulation networks and topology-function relationship.

AG17 — SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry
ID
832174
Dates
31 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017
Location
Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, United States
Abstract
The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry is to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. "Algebraic geometry" is interpreted broadly to include at least: algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology. These methods have already seen applications in: biology, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics, and statistics. We welcome participation from both theoretical mathematical areas and application areas not on this list which fall under this broadly interpreted notion of algebraic geometry and its applications.

Geometric topology in low dimensions
ID
881647
Dates
18 Sep 2017 - 22 Sep 2017
Location
Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, Cove, United Kingdom
Abstract
The resolution of many of Thurston's prophetic questions about the structure of 3-manifolds has generated a vast array of techniques which permeate many of the areas covered by the symposium. As is often the case, the resolution of old conjectures has led to intriguing new questions, which will be the focus of this workshop. Examples include: given a combinatorial or arithmetic presentation of a 3-manifold, describe its geometric structure concretely ("effective geometrisation"); understand the geometry of the Thurston unit norm ball, for example how it behaves under taking towers of covers; understand the connection between Heegard-Floer homology and orderability of fundamental groups. Several old conjectures, such as the simple loop conjecture for surfaces in three-manifolds and the conjecture that a quasifuchsian group is determined by its pleating laminations, continue to motivate work.

ICTS discussion meeting: Surface Group Representations and Geometric Structures
ID
881706
Dates
27 Nov 2017 - 30 Nov 2017
Location
ICTS Bangalore, India
Abstract
The focus of this discussion meeting will be geometric aspects of the representation spaces of surface groups into semi-simple Lie groups. Classical Teichmuller theory may be viewed as a starting point of the subject, and following the work of Labourie and Goldman, many exciting developments have taken place when the target group is SL(n, R). Recent work of Kapovich, Leeb and Porti have connected the subject with geometric group theory and higher rank symmetric spaces, opening up new horizons. The aim of this discussion meeting is to expose all these recent developments on the subject and to understand avenues for further directions. The program is an immediate follow up to the ICTS Advanced School: Geometry, Groups and Dynamics-2017.

Enumerative Geometry Beyond Numbers
ID
832335
Dates
16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Traditional enumerative geometry asks certain questions to which the expected answer is a number: for instance, the number of lines incident with two points in the plane (1, Euclid), or the number of twisted cubic curves on a quintic threefold (317 206 375). It has however been recognized for some time that the numerics is often just the tip of the iceberg: a deeper exploration reveals interesting geometric, topological, representation-, or knot-theoretic structures. This semester-long program will be devoted to these hidden structures behind enumerative invariants, concentrating on the core fields where these questions start: algebraic and symplectic geometry.

INI Workshop RGMW06 — RGM follow up
ID

Dates
09 Jul 2018 - 20 Jul 2018
Location
Cambridge, United Kingdom
Abstract
The subject of random geometry has evolved considerably during the programme of the same name which took place at the Newton Institute in spring 2015, and in the intervening months. For instance, a unification of the discrete and continuous perspectives for random surface models (eg random planar maps and Liouville quantum gravity) has been greatly advanced; new methods have been introduced in the study of disordered systems and their phase transitions; and new directions of research have emerged such as a rigorous investigation of Yang--Mills models.The goal of the two-week workshop will be to allow researchers worldwide and from all career stages to catch up on these developments, and to plan for future research directions of the subject by capitalising on recent progress.The workshop will combine a series of mini-courses with invited talks (TBA) over a period of two weeks.

The program will cover not only the mathematical aspects of Hamiltonian systems but also their applications, mainly in space mechanics, physics and chemistry. The mathematical aspects comprise celestial mechanics, variational methods, relations with PDE, Arnold diffusion and computation. The applications concern celestial mechanics, astrodynamics, motion of satellites, plasma physics, accelerator physics, theoretical chemistry, and atomic physics. The goal of the program is to bring to the forefront both the theoretical aspects and the applications, by making available for applications... (see website for more details).

Derived Algebraic Geometry
ID
881791
Dates
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Derived algebraic geometry is an extension of algebraic geometry that provides a convenient framework for directly treating non-generic geometric situations (such as non-transverse intersections in intersection theory), in lieu of the more traditional perturbative approaches (such as the "moving" lemma). This direct approach, in addition to being conceptually satisfying, has the distinct advantage of preserving the symmetries of the situation, which makes it much more applicable. In particular, in recent years, such techniques have found applications in diverse areas of mathematics, ranging from arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric representation theory, and homotopy theory. This semester long program will be dedicated to exploring these directions further, and finding new connections.
