Spring Graduate School on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
20 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Two mini-courses will be given by experts in Geometric Group Theory. These are designed to give graduate students and early career researchers a research level perspective on how and why Polyhedral Products appear in Geometric Group Theory, thereby enabling the participants to engage fully in the workshop that immediately follows.
Workshop on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Two special cases of the polyhedral product construction have been immensely influential in geometric group theory, giving rise to at least three major families of examples of groups parametrized by flag simplicial complexes: right-angled Coxeter groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); right-angled Artin groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); and Bestvina-Brady groups associated with a covering space of the polyhedral product for pairs (,*). However, the interaction between toric topology and geometric group theory is largely unexplored. The purpose of this workshop is to significantly increase synergies between the two groups and establish a framework for approaching common problems and methods in a more global context.
5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Algorithms for Linear Groups
21 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Since its inception, Computational Group Theory has proved to be a fertile area for the development of effective computational techniques, which have been applied in diverse areas of mathematics, science and engineering; these include coding theory, design theory, integer programming, crystallography, algebraic number theory, and topology. The aim of this meeting is to bring together a combination of leading and young researchers on computations with linear groups, for the purpose of exploring new directions for research in the light of significant recent advances.
Arithmetic Aspects of Algebraic Groups
06 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Banff, AB, Canada
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
The investigation of arithmetic groups has been an active and important area of mathematical research ever since it arose in the work of Gauss, Klein, Poincare, and other famous mathematicians of the 18th and 19th centuries. New points of view have recently led to progress on classical problems, opened new directions of inquiry, and revealed unexpected connections with other areas of mathematics. The workshop will bring together experts in the area, researchers in related fields, and young mathematicians who wish to learn about the most recent advances and the most promising directions for the future of the field.
