3.Fundamental Groups and Periods |

Dates | 13 Oct 2014 → 17 Oct 2014 | [ID=643830] |

Location | Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, United States |

Abstract | A workshop held as part of the yearlong program 'Topology of Algebraic Varieties' at the Institute for Advanced Study. It is largely a mystery which groups can be the fundamental group of a smooth complex projective varieties. Hodge theory gives many restrictions on the possible fundamental groups, but there is a big gap between the known examples and the known restrictions. One goal of the workshop is to present the latest work on the possible fundamental groups of algebraic varieties. A second theme is the study of periods, the numbers obtained as integrals of algebraic functions. Multiple zeta values are special periods which are intimately related with the category of mixed Tate motives over the integers. |

4.AIM Workshop — Combinatorics and complexity of Kronecker coefficients |

Dates | 03 Nov 2014 → 07 Nov 2014 | [ID=611234] |

Location | Palo Alto, CA, United States |

Organizer | American Institute of Mathematics |

Abstract | This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the study of Kronecker coefficients which describe the decomposition of tensor products of irreducible representations of a symmetric group into irreducible representations. We concentrate on their combinatorial interpretation, computational aspects and applications to other fields. |

11.Zariski-dense Subgroups |

Dates | 09 Feb 2015 → 13 Feb 2015 | [ID=643980] |

Location | Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States |

Abstract | This workshop will survey the recent progress in the study of Zariski-dense subgroups (both arithmetic and non-arithmetic) of semi-simple algebraic groups; the impact of this work on adjacent areas such as algebraic groups, division algebras, and Galois cohomology; and applications in further areas such as geometry (isospectral and length-commensurable locally symmetric spaces) and combinatorics (expander graphs). These developments have led to new connections between different areas of mathematics (algebra, number theory, algebraic and Lie groups, differential geometry and topology, and combinatorics), and the workshop will bring together people working in those areas, using the subject of Zariski-dense subgroups as a common thread to build new scientific connections as well as to solve new problems that have recently appeared. |
