Symposium on geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions
11 Sep 2017 - 13 Jul 2018 • Warwick, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Warwick EPSRC mathematics symposium is organised annually by the University of Warwick with the support of the EPSRC for the benefit of the mathematical sciences community in the UK. It brings leading national and international experts together with UK researchers in a year-long programme of research activities focused on an emerging theme in the mathematical sciences. From September 2017 to August 2018, the symposium will concentrate on the theme of ''Geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions''. It will feature a series of international workshops and host a number of long-term visitors. There will also be a summer school organised in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society and the Clay Mathematics Institute.
Topics:
Geometric topology in low dimensions, Computation in geometric topology, Teichmüller dynamics, Geometry of Teichmüller space and mapping class groups, Geometry of outer spaces and outer automorphism groups, Representation varieties and geometric structures in low dimensions, Graphs, surfaces, and cube complexes

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.

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.
