IHES summer school on aspects of geometric group theory
08 Jul 2019 - 19 Jul 2019 • Bures-sur-Yvette, France
Abstract:
A group is a mathematical object encoding natural notions of symmetries and transformations. Geometric group theory is an area in mathematics devoted to the study of discrete groups by exploring connections between algebraic properties of such groups and topological and geometric properties of spaces on which these groups act.

As a distinct area, geometric group theory is relatively new, and became an identifiable branch of mathematics in the early 1990's. Geometric group theory closely interacts with low-dimensional topology, hyperbolic geometry, Lie groups and homogeneous spaces, algebraic topology, computational group theory, and differential geometry. There are also substantial connections with complexity theory, mathematical logic, dynamical systems, probability theory, K-theory, and other areas of mathematics.

Topics:
This is an IHES Summer School, organized in partnership with the Clay Mathematical Institute, and the support of the Société Générale, the FMJH, the IUF, the ANR GAMME, the project Jeunes Géomètres and the ERC.

Workshop on New Geometry of Quantum Dynamics
12 Aug 2019 - 16 Aug 2019 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The mathematical scope of the program is within noncommutative geometry, quantum groups, graph C*- algebras, KK-theory, index pairing, C*-dynamical systems and crossed products, Dirac operators, spectral triples, curvature, and quantum Gromov-Hausdorff distance. There are a number unifying principles which establish connections among the proposed topics of the meeting. For example, dynamical systems link together graph C*-algebras and noncommutative metric geometry. We aim to construct quantum metric geometries of crossed products and graph algebras relating the Lipschitz norm and Dirac-operator approaches. This links the metric and spectral features of noncommutative geometry. A key research focus of the proposed activities is to make precise the impact of metric and spectral noncommutative geometry on noncommutative topology. Graph C*-algebras are an abundant source of examples which test the bridges between the topics of the proposed conference.

GTSUMMIT — China-US Group Theory Summit 2019
22 Aug 2019 - 25 Aug 2019 • San Marcos, TX, United States
Abstract:
Group theory is a fundamental and highly active field of research within the mathematical sciences and has ramifications throughout all of mathematics and the sciences. There are large communities of group theory researchers in all continents, and they keep in touch through international meetings and conferences. However, local conditions and cultural circumstances under which mathematical research is done differ quite a bit between different regions of the world. The focus of this conference is on research in group theory in the USA and in China. One major goal of the conference is to establish and strengthen ties between group theorists in China and the US. It is the first conference in group theory with this focus. We will have about 15 invited talks and a limited number of contributed talks. The speakers from both countries will cover a large variety of the subjects in the area, which include representations of solvable groups, representations of simple groups, character theory, classes of groups, groups and combinatorics, recognizing simple groups from group invariants, p-groups, and fusion systems.

19w5046 — Groups and Geometries
25 Aug 2019 - 30 Aug 2019 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The Banff International Research Station will host the "Groups and Geometries" workshop in Banff from August 25, 2019 to August 30, 2019.

Group theory is an abstract subject, but it is also the mathematical way to investigate symmetry. Thus many problems from various areas of mathematics which involve some sort of symmetry are susceptible to the application of group theory. In this proposal we plan to cover three main areas: the abstract structure of finite groups; some geometrical aspects of group theory; and several recent applications of group theory to other areas of mathematics.

Immeubles et grassmaniennes affines — Buildings and Affine Grassmannians
26 Aug 2019 - 06 Sep 2019 • CIRM – Luminy, France
Organizer:
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Abstract:
The aim of the summer school is to gather young researchers arising from a quite wide mathematical area in order to build knowledge in two complementary fundamental theories. The first one is Bruhat-Tits theory which deals with the Euclidean buildings and integral models of reductive algebraic groups defined over a local field, the second one is the theory of Affine Grassmannians which are geometric objects arising from Representation Theory.

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.

Arithmetic Aspects of Algebraic Groups
06 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Banff, AB, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
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.

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.
