Workshop: Stochastic Topology and Thermodynamic Limits
ID
734321
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
734364
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.

Higher Dimensional Algebraic Geometry, Holomorphic Dynamics and Their Interactions
ID
831694
Dates
03 Jan 2017 - 28 Jan 2017
Location
Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Singapore , Singapore
Abstract
In recent years we have seen great breakthroughs in the classification theory of higher dimensional compact algebraic varieties and complex manifolds. The seminal results are the proofs of finite generations of canonical rings of algebraic varieties by Caucher Birkar - Paolo Cascini - Christopher D. Hacon - James McKernan [BCHM06] using the algebraic method and Yum-Tong Siu [Siu08] using the analytic method. These results have profound influence on many areas of mathematics - including the study of higher dimensional dynamics and number theoretical dynamics. The interactions of algebraic geometry and the study of these dynamics is exactly the main theme of this program.

AIM workshop — Trisections and low-dimensional topology
ID
815117
Dates
20 Mar 2017 - 24 Mar 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to a new perspective on 4-dimensional topology introduced by Gay and Kirby in 2012: Every smooth 4-manifold can be decomposed into three simple pieces via a trisection, a generalization of a Heegaard splitting of a 3-manifold. Since 2012, the theory of trisections has expanded to include the relative settings of surfaces in 4-manifolds and 4-manifolds with boundary, and tantalizing evidence reveals that trisections may bridge the gap between 3- and 4-dimensional topology. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in low-dimensional topology in order to study interactions between trisections and other powerful tools and techniques

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.

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.

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.

Enumerative Geometry Beyond Numbers
ID

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.

Abstract
The interdisciplinary nature of Hamiltonian systems is deeply ingrained in its history. Therefore the program will bring together the communities of mathematicians with the community of practitioners, mainly engineers, physicists, and theoretical chemists who use Hamiltonian systems daily. 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).
