ICTS Program: Geometry, Groups and Dynamics (GGD)-2017
06 Nov 2017 - 24 Nov 2017 • ICTS Bangalore, India
Abstract:
This program will focus on the areas around geometry and dynamical systems which encompass a large portion of group theory in its proximity. Topics are chosen to cover the modern aspects of these areas which have seen many research activities in recent times. The program will have two parts, a pre-school in the first week and an advanced school during the remaining two weeks. The pre-school will be devoted to covering the necessary background materials for the advanced courses whose tentative details may be obtained from the program website.

ICTS discussion meeting: Surface Group Representations and Geometric Structures
27 Nov 2017 - 30 Nov 2017 • ICTS Bangalore, India
Abstract:
The focus of this discussion meeting will be geometric aspects of the representation spaces of surface groups into semi-simple Lie groups. Classical Teichmuller theory may be viewed as a starting point of the subject, and following the work of Labourie and Goldman, many exciting developments have taken place when the target group is SL(n, R). Recent work of Kapovich, Leeb and Porti have connected the subject with geometric group theory and higher rank symmetric spaces, opening up new horizons. The aim of this discussion meeting is to expose all these recent developments on the subject and to understand avenues for further directions. The program is an immediate follow up to the ICTS Advanced School: Geometry, Groups and Dynamics-2017.

Geometric and Harmonic Analysis on Homogeneous Spaces and Applications
18 Dec 2017 - 21 Dec 2017 • Mahdia, Tunisia
Abstract:
Lie group representation theory and harmonic analysis on Lie groups and on their homogeneous spaces form a significant and important area of mathematical research. Interest in these areas began soon after World War II and has gained much strength since then. These areas are interrelated with various other mathematical fields such as number theory, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, operator algebra, partial differential equations and mathematical physics. Keeping up with the fast development of this exciting area of research, Ali Baklouti (University of Sfax) and Takaaki Nomura (Kyushu University) launched a series of seminars on the topic, the first of which took place on November 2009 in Kerkennah Islands, the second in Sousse on December 2011, and the third in Hammamet on December 2013.

Group Representation Theory and Applications
16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018 • 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.

Jean-Morlet Chair Whole Semester on Geometry, Topology, and Group Theory in Dimension 3 (Genevieve Walsh and Luisa Paoluzzi)
01 Feb 2018 - 31 Jul 2018 • CIRM Luminy, France
Abstract:
This semester of the Jean-Morlet Chair will feature several events. Firstly, a large conference focusing on the structure of 3-manifold groups, as well as on structures of groups inspired by structures on 3-manifolds?such as PD(3) groups, relatively hyperbolic groups, and building. Secondly, a research school for PhD students and recent post-docs, centering on current research in 3-Manifolds and Geometric Group Theory, and looking at the interplay between the two topics. Thirdly, a medium-size workshop centering on extremely current topics and taking into account Cannon's conjecture and related conjectures, the relation to QIs, CAT(0) boundaries, boundaries of hyperbolic buildings, relatively hyperbolic groups, and rigidity. Masterclasses for local students and Research in Pairs events will also be held during the semester.
