This Spring School will gather together PhD students and junior researchers who use category-theoretic ideas or techniques in their research. It will provide a forum to learn about important themes in contemporary category theory, both from experts and from each other. Three invited speakers will each present a three-hour mini-course, accessible to non-specialists, introducing an area of active research. There will also be short talks contributed by PhD students and postdocs, and a poster session. The focus of the Spring School is on aspects of pure category theory as they interact with research in other areas of algebra, geometry, topology and logic. Any "categorical thinker" - that is, any mathematician whose work makes use of categorical ideas - is welcome to participate.

Arithmetic groups and 3-manifolds
23 Mar 2020 - 27 Mar 2020 • Hagen, Germany
Organizer:
University of Hagen
Abstract:
Arithmetic groups provide a fruitful link between various areas, such as geometry, topology, representation theory and number theory. Methods from geometry and topology hinge on the fact that arithmetic groups are lattices in Lie groups, whereas the theory of automorphic forms establishes a connection to representation theory and number theory. This interplay is especially intriguing in the setting of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. Indeed many conjectures in 3-manifold theory tend to be much more accessible for hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose fundamental groups are arithmetic, and conversely such manifolds provide the simplest set-up in which some of the most exciting new phenomena in the Langlands program can be studied. This conference will bring together researchers with various backgrounds around links between number theory and 3-manifolds. Central topics of the conference are the cohomology of arithmetic groups, the relation between torsion and L²-torsion, profinite invariants of 3-manifolds, and number theoretic ramifications.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Analysis and Geometry of Metric Spaces - a Bridge between Smooth and Fractal Views
05 Apr 2020 - 10 Apr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The notion of fractals was introduced by Mandelbrot as new models of the shapes of objects in nature like the coastline, trees and the surface of rocks, which can not be represented by combinations of smooth objects such as lines, rectangles, circles and spheres. Since there happens natural phenomena such as waves and heat diffusions on those objects modeled by fractals, we need to develop the theory to treat such natural phenomena on fractals, which are included in the category of metric spaces. This direction of study is called analysis and geometry on metric spaces. In this area of research, there have been two groups, one has tried to extend the existing theory for smooth spaces and the other has tried to use the complicated structure of the object itself. These two groups have been working separately for more than 20 years and both have obtained fruitful results. However, recently, evidences of strong connection between those two approaches. So the main purpose of this workshop is to gather people from both sides, to promote interaction and to create a common ground for deeper study in this area.

Workshop — Using Quantum Invariants to do Interesting Topology
26 Apr 2020 - 01 May 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
This workshop centres on new advances in topology resulting from quantum invariants, a novel collection of algebraic objects that in currently experiencing a period of intense development. These invariants have their origins in knot theory, that is, the study of knotted loops in three-dimensional space. Beginning with Jones' discovery of a new invariant of knots in the 80s, quantum invariants have grown into a wide-reaching algebraic discipline with ramifications that extend beyond the study of knots and links. Indeed, the most recent developments - pioneered by Khovanov - move these polynomial invariants to homological invariants which have, in recent years, provided new insight in 4-dimensional topology. The workshop will bring together a broad range of experts from around the world working in quantum-homological invariants of knots and links with the aim of tackling new problems in topology with these tools.

Organizer:
Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Long Island, NY
Abstract:
This workshop will explore topics of current interest in the theory of Floer homology for 3-manifolds. Floer homology is a powerful tool for studying the topology of 3- and 4-dimensional manifolds, and the relations between them. The first such invariants were introduced by Floer, and arose in the context of Donaldson theory on smooth 4-manifolds.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Connections in Infinite Dimensional Dynamics
17 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Changes in dynamics define many of the important phenomena we see around us, such as the passage from normal heart beat to arrhythmia, the collapse of the stock market, and the shedding of vortices from airplane wings. Mathematically such dynamic transitions are modelled by connections in nonlinear dynamical systems, mainly in the form of ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations and delay differential equations. This workshop focuses on combining computational techniques with abstract mathematics to improve our fundamental understanding of transitions in dynamical systems.

The 23rd Midrasha Mathematicae: O-minimality and its applications in Diophantine Geometry and Hodge Theory
17 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Israel Institute for Advanced Studies at the Hebre, Israel
Organizer:
Israel Institute for Advanced Studies (IIAS) The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Abstract:
In recent years a remarkable new link has been unfolding between o-minimality (a branch of model theory) on the one hand, and Diophantine geometry and Hodge theory on the other. It has been discovered that some central objects of study in the latter two areas, such as theta functions and period maps, can be studied within the structure R_{an,exp} - an o-minimal structure that has long been an object of investigation in o-minimal geometry. A combination of ideas from these three areas have led to resolutions of several outstanding conjectures in Diophantine geometry and, more recently, in Hodge theory. The goal of this workshop will be to introduce these three different areas and their fruitful interactions, and to serve as a bridge between experts already working in some of these fields. The schedule will consist of tutorial minicourses on the three main topics (o-minimality, Diophantine geometry and Hodge theory) with a focus on the areas where they intersect; and more advanced research talks by experts in each of these areas.

Workshop — Topological Complexity and Motion Planning
24 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
Teaching a robot to move about on an empty football field is easy. There is exactly one line joining the robot's starting and finishing points, and the robot can be instructed to move from start to finish along this line. This instruction scheme is robust in the sense that nearby starting and finishing points give rise to similar instructions. If the robot is attached to a circular track, teaching it to move is harder. The instructions ``move along the shortest arc'' lead to confusion if the starting and finishing points are precisely opposite one another, as the robot doesn't know whether to move in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction. Choosing one of these two, say, the instructions ``move clockwise'', yields confusion when the starting and finishing points are the same. From these instructions, the robot does not know if it should simply stay at the start/finish point, or move in a less efficient manner, looping around the circle once or twice or\ldots

Workshop on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
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.

Combinatorial Applications of Computational Geometry and Algebraic Topology
31 May 2020 - 06 Jun 2020 • West Greenwich, RI, United States
Organizer:
American Matheamtical Society
Abstract:
The new and rapidly expanding area of Analytic Combinatorics in Several Variables (ACSV) concerns enumeration problems in such areas as lattice walks, statistical mechanical models, quantum walks and other exactly solvable models where asymptotic estimation of coefficients of a bivariate or multivariate generating function is required. The multivariate setting incorporates a wider swath of mathematics. including singularity theory, algebraic topology, and computational algebra. Participants in this MRC will be introduced to problems from these areas of mathematics whose solutions have direct applications to ACSV. These problems are not hard to state in the language of disciplines such as Morse theory, harmonic analysis, or commutative algebra, but they ask questions not typical in those fields. A long-term goal is to advance and automate this work, so that its benefits can be used by other researchers in mathematics and the natural sciences through implementations in computer algebra packages. Problems for this MRC will be arranged around five central topics: effective computer algebra methods, algorithms using computational topology, multivariate asymptotic phase transitions, singular transforms for degenerate saddle-point integrals, and applications of harmonic analysis and singularity theory. Researchers with knowledge in any one of these areas are encouraged to apply to this MRC.

Index Theory and Complex Geometry
01 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
Interactions between people working in Index Theory and Complex Geometry are increasing. One of the reasons is that although researchers use different tools and techniques, their studies have profound connections and are understandable to people from both sides. Sharing experiences and techniques is an opportunity for them to accelerate collaboration works. Index Theory and Complex Geometry recently both have spectacular developments. In this program, we plan to dig out more materials on complex geometry side of global analysis led by recent development on geometric hypoelliptic Laplacians.

Advances in Mixed Characteristic Commutative Algebra and Geometric Connections
07 Jun 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
One of the big ideas in modern mathematics is that integers (like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...) in many formal ways behave similarly to polynomial equations (like y = x^2, which defines the parabola). Frequently, and perhaps surprisingly, many questions in mathematics are easier to study for polynomials than for integers. Hence intuition and results for polynomials can tell us about the integers. Commutative algebra lives at the intersection of both perspectives, and one fundamental object of study is polynomials with integer coefficients, this is called the mixed characteristic case. Recently, Yves Andre proved a long standing open conjecture in commutative algebra in this mixed characteristic setting, relying on constructions of Scholze (and then Bhatt gave a simplified proof of the same conjecture). This workshop aims to foster and discuss these and other recent tools, to study some remaining open problems in mixed characteristic. The workshop will bring together a diverse group of researchers from different fields, such as commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory.

CIMPA-IASBS Research School on Spectra in Riemannian and Symplectic Geometry,
08 Jun 2020 - 18 Jun 2020 • Zanjan, Iran
Abstract:
One of the fascinating bridges between classical mechanics and quantum physics is expressed in the fact that the length spectrum and the Laplace spectrum of a closed Riemannian manifold determine each other (at least generically). Similarly, the set of lengths of the closed orbits of a billiard table and the Laplace spectrum of that table determine each other, at least for certain billiard tables. The main goal of this school is to introduce graduate students and young researchers to basic facts on these two spectra, and to the above correspondence. The length spectrum generalizes to the action spectrum of an autonomous Hamiltonian function. Floer homology filtered by the action spectrum can be used to construct so-called action selectors, that are a principal tool in modern symplectic geometry and dynamics, yielding simple proofs of Gromov's nonsqueezing theorem, the Weinstein conjecture in R^{2n}, the existence of closed orbits in a magnetic fields, etc. The second goal is to understand this relevance of the action spectrum in symplectic geometry. A third, more hypothetical, goal is to see which parts of the two sides can be related.

Prerequisites: We expect that students have had courses in real analysis of several variables, know what an ordinary differential equation is, and have followed a course on curves and surfaces. More knowledge is useful, but not necessary to follow the lectures.

8th Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry
22 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Morelia, Mexico
Abstract:
Since the time of Bernhard Riemann, the influence of analytical and algebraic methods based on Riemann surfaces, algebraic curves and abelian varieties, has been crucial in the development of other areas in physics and mathematics, as well as applications to other areas. These topics have been a very effective tool in solving problems in commutative algebra, mathematical-physics, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, complex and hyperbolic geometry, dynamical systems, singularity theory, topology and other interdisciplinary branches of mathematics that are constantly evolving. The Iberoamerican Geometry Congresses (IGC) have the particularity of gathering researchers and students from various mathematical communities of America and other regions of the world, with the aim of fostering an exchange of ideas between mathematicians in different fields, linked by the geometry of Riemann surfaces, abelian varieties and related fields.

Algebraic Curves
29 Jun 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Hainan, China
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The theory of algebraic curves, arguably the oldest branch of algebraic geometry, has seen major developments in recent years, for example in the study of syzygies, and around questions about moduli spaces and Hilbert schemes of curves. The theory is rich in research activity and unsolved problems. There is an encyclopedic work by Arbarello, Cornalba, Griffiths and Harris, but there is no modern text that could be used as a textbook and that goes beyond the basics of the theory. We have embarked on a project to write a book at roughly the level of the wonderful book on complex algebraic surfaces by Arnaud Beauville.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Moving Frames and their Modern Applications
05 Jul 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Originally introduced by Martin Bartels in the early nineteenth century, and then extensively developed by Élie Cartan in the first half of the twentieth century, the method of moving frames is a powerful tool for studying the geometry of curves, surfaces, and, more generally, submanifolds under the action of a group of transformations. In 1999, a new and more general formulation of moving frame was introduced by Fels and Olver which led to a dramatic resurgence of interest in the method accompanied by a striking extension of the range of applications. The workshop will bring together a diverse group of experts with the goal of exploring existing and emerging applications of the moving frame method to differential equations and integrable systems in physics, to computer vision and object recognition, medical imaging, broken object reconstruction, discrete and differential-difference equations, geometric numerical integration, and much more.

Summer School — Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory
27 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Evanston, IL, United States
Organizer:
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
Abstract:
The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.

Workshop — Topological properties of gauge theories and their applications to high-energy and condensed-matter physics
24 Aug 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
The Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
Many remarkable properties of gauge theories rely on the topology of field configurations and/or ambient spacetime and are connected with quantum anomalies and nonperturbative excitations. These properties, often exact, have many implications in the physics of fundamental interactions, condensed matter systems and statistical mechanics models. They also account for a large part of the investigations in string theory, and combined with supersymmetry have led to exact solutions of low-energy theories and the discovery of duality relations between supersymmetric gauge theories. Meanwhile, a renewed interest in topological aspects has emerged from condensed matter physics, through the study of topological phases of quantum matter. The effective field theories for these systems are not of the usual Landau-Ginzburg-Higgs type, rather, they are described by topological gauge theories. The goal of this GGI activity is to bring together theoreticians of different backgrounds, in condensed matter, high energy and mathematical physics, with the belief that interdisciplinary approaches can lead to substantial progress in many directions.
Topics:
Anomalies of quantum field theories * Generalized symmetries * Topological aspects of quantum states in condensed matter * (Supersymmetric) dualities in (2+1)-dimensions * Time-reversal symmetry and 4d theta-terms

31 Aug 2020 - 04 Sep 2020 • Regensburg, Germany
Organizer:
Regensburg University, Dep. of Mathematics, SFB1085 (U. Bunke, D.C. Cisinski, G. Kings )
Abstract:
Homotopical and higher categorical methods have seen increasing importance in mathematics, both as foundations and as computational tools. In fact, such methods merge two apparently distinct goals: understanding geometrical forms and classifying mathematical structures. This conference aims at gathering together under this perspective geometers in a rather broad sense. It seeks to foster the applications of these higher methods in the interplay between homotopy theory, arithmetic, and algebraic geometry.

08 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The use of dynamical invariants has long been a staple of geometry and topology, from rigidity theorems, to classification theorems, to the general study of lattices and of the mapping class group. More recently, random structures in topology and notions of probabilistic geometric convergence have played a critical role in testing the robustness of conjectures in the arithmetic setting. In this introductory workshop, we will bring together junior and senior researchers in order to provide a mix of introductory lectures as well as reporting on more recent progress in topics from this diverse range of subjects.

Workshop — Noncommutative Geometry meets Topological Recursion
27 Sep 2020 - 02 Oct 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop intends to be a first meeting point for specialists and young researchers active in non-commutative geometry, free probability, and topological recursion. In the two first areas, one often wants to compute expectation values of a large class of non-commutative observables in random ensembles of (several) matrices of size N, in the large N limit. The motivations come from the study of various models of 2d quantum gravity via random spectral triples, or from the problem of identifying of interesting factors via approximations by matrix models. Topological recursion and its generalizations provide a priori universal recipes to make and compactly organize such computations, not only for the leading order in N, but also to all orders of expansion in 1/N.in such a way that bridges to other domains where topological recursion has been applied (like enumerative geometry, tropical geometry, mirror symmetry, topological and more generally low-dimensional quantum field theories) become clear.

Workshop — Topological Data Analytic Applications of Persistent Cohomology
04 Oct 2020 - 09 Oct 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Inspired by the success of persistent homology, the purpose of the present workshop is to replicate this success by developing robust, statistically integrated versions of other constructions from classical algebraic topology. In particular, we are interested in persistent versions of cohomology theory, that combine the robustness of persistence with the various sophisticated algebraic structures associated with cohomology.

Workshop — Poisson Geometry and Artin-Schelter Regular Algebras
11 Oct 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop will tackle some fundamental open questions about Artin-Schelter regular algebras, in particular, elliptic algebras, and their associated Poisson structures. In particular, it will focus on the correspondence between the representations of elliptic algebras and the symplectic leaves of their semi-classical limits, as well as on the relationship between the deformation theory of Artin-Schelter regular algebras and that of the derived category or the A-infinity-category of related projective schemes. This workshop brings together leading experts in algebra and geometry from around the world to identify and attack these outstanding problems and to collaborate for future breakthroughs.

Workshop — Locality and Functoriality in Symplectic Geometry
18 Oct 2020 - 23 Oct 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
Symplectic geometry concerns symplectic manifolds. A key modern tool is an algebraic structure called the 'Fukaya category', which is associated to a single such object. Geometric relations between the manifolds are reflected in algebraic interactions between the categories. There has been a great deal of recent progress in understanding such relations. This workshop will bring together many of the key workers in this rapidly developing field to share ideas and set further directions of exploration.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Derived, Birational, and Categorical Algebraic Geometry
01 Nov 2020 - 06 Nov 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Birational geometry is a classical mathematic subject dating back to the late 1800s. It aims to classify geometric shapes by looking at the majority of their points and asks "if I remove some points from shape A and some other points from shape B, do they become the same shape?". This turns out to be a surprisingly difficult and fundamental mathematical question. Perhaps more surprising is that the classification of geometric shapes from birational geometry is related to the classification of abstract mathematical gadgets called derived categories, a formal language developed by prominent mathematicians in France in the 1960s. However, the relationship between derived categories and birational geometry remains unproven.

Workshop — Integral and Metric Geometry
01 Nov 2020 - 06 Nov 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
Valuation theory grew out of integral geometry, and studies such geometric quantities as volume, surface area, and their generalizations. Spaces with curvature bounds are geometric objects which are not necessarily smooth, but that retain nevertheless some of the features of smooth spaces. For example convexity/concavity properties of the distance function can be seen as a non-smooth generalization of the smooth notion of curvature of constant sign.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Topology and Entanglement in Many-Body Systems
29 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The possibility of using quantum mechanics to build computers that are both faster and more secure is an exciting technological leap. One of the most promising pathways to a robust architecture, referred to as topological quantum computing, has lead to fascinating research at the frontier of mathematics and physics. Properties of new, exotic states of matter can be understood - and hence implemented in practice - using tools that were developed by pure mathematicians in connection to surfaces and their curvature. This workshop is bringing together international experts to explore the intimate connections between such topological properties of quantum matter and the key resource of quantum computing: entanglement.

Structure and randomness in locally symmetric spaces
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The study of discrete subgroups of Lie groups and the associated locally symmetric manifolds has a long and rich history, with powerful interconnections between the geometry of the locally symmetric space, topology of towers of its finite covers, and number-theoretic aspects. More recently dynamical and probabilistic techniques have been fruitfully employed to study these groups and spaces. The workshop will take stock of recent developments in these highly active fields from a variety of backgrounds.

Topics at the Interface of Low Dimensional Group Actions and Geometric Structures
04 Jan 2021 - 15 Jan 2021 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
In this two-week program, we explore the interactions between geometric group theory, geometric structures and Anosov representations. Geometric group theory, in the broadest sense, seeks to understand the structure of groups through their actions on objects with geometric meaning. Conversely, one can take a known group and attempt to understand all its geometrically meaningful actions. One natural notion that arises in this setting is an Anosov representation, which came about as an attempt to describe what it means for the action of a discrete group on a homogeneous space to be geometrically well behaved. Also, in his Erlangen program, Felix Klein viewed geometry as a space which is invariant under a group of transformations. This gave rise to the notion of a geometric structure, which gives yet another notion of a geometrically meaningful action of a group on a homogeneous space.
