Groups Acting on CAT(0) Spaces
ID
748401
Dates
27 Sep 2016 - 30 Sep 2016
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
The theme of the workshop is algebraic, geometric and analytical aspects of groups that act by isometries on spaces of non-positive curvature known as CAT(0) spaces. The world of CAT(0) spaces includes classical spaces such as symmetric spaces and buildings, as well as more avant-garde arrivals, such as CAT(0) cube complex. The workshop will bring together researchers studying various aspects of such groups and spaces to discuss recent developments and chart new directions in the field.

Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
A four-day workshop with research-level talks on the latest advances in the geometry of mapping class groups and Out$(F_n)$, and spaces on which they act.

Cohen groups, exponents in homotopy groups and the Barratt conjecture
ID
817361
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
828864
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
832325
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.

Representations of Finite and Algebraic Groups
ID
832300
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.
