Cohen groups, exponents in homotopy groups and the Barratt conjecture

ID

817405

Dates

28 Oct 2016 - 05 Nov 2016

Location

Warszawa, Poland

Abstract

The group structure of certain Cohen groups have recently been determined using delicate calculations involving Fox torus homotopy groups. The Cohen groups were first introduced by F. Cohen to tackle the Barratt conjecture. We hope to further investigate how the recent results on Cohen groups can shed light on the Barratt conjecture as well exponents in the unstable homotopy theory.

The 20th Midrasha Mathematicae - 60 Faces to Groups

ID

828831

Dates

06 Nov 2016 - 11 Nov 2016

Location

Jerusalem, Israel

Abstract

Groups have always played a central role in the different branches of Algebra, yet their importance goes far behind the limits of algebraic research. One of the most significant examples for this is the work of Alex Lubotzky. Over the last 35 years, Alex has developed and applied group theoretic methods to different areas of mathematics including combinatorics, computer science, geometry and number theory. His research led the way in the study of expander graphs, p-adic Lie groups, profinite groups, subgroup growth and many geometric counting problems. The 20th Midrasha, dedicated to Alex’s 60th birthday, will include lectures from leading mathematicians in these fields presenting their current work.

Group Representation Theory and Applications

ID

832314

Dates

16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018

Location

Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States

Abstract

Group Representation Theory is a central area of Algebra, with important and deep connections to areas as varied as topology, algebraic geometry, number theory, Lie theory, homological algebra, and mathematical physics. Born more than a century ago, the area still abounds with basic problems and fundamental conjectures, some of which have been open for over five decades. Very recent breakthroughs have led to the hope that some of these conjectures can finally be settled. In turn, recent results in group representation theory have helped achieve substantial progress in a vast number of applications. The goal of the program is to investigate all these deep problems and the wealth of new results and directions, to obtain major progress in the area, and to explore further applications of group representation theory to other branches of mathematics.

Dates

09 Apr 2018 - 13 Apr 2018

Location

Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States

Abstract

The workshop will bring together key researchers working in various areas of Group Representation Theory to strengthen the interaction and collaboration between them and to make further progress on a number of basic problems and conjectures in the field. Topics of the workshop include - Global-local conjectures in the representation theory of finite groups - Representations and cohomology of simple, algebraic and finite groups - Connections to Lie theory and categorification, and - Applications to group theory, number theory, algebraic geometry, and combinatorics.
