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.

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.

Knots, Surfaces and 3-manifolds
20 Jun 2021 - 25 Jun 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
A mathematical knot can be thought of as a piece of knotted string with ends attached. This knotted circle is allowed to move freely in space as long as it does not pass through itself. In recent years the study of knots has gained momentum through a series of applications, for instance in physics and in molecular biology. Such applications bring new urgency to certain classical questions pertaining to knots and how they sit inside 3-dimensional space. Much like a knotted wand dipped into liquid soap will bound a bubble, mathematical knots sitting in 3-dimensional space bound surfaces. Studying pairs of the form (knot, surface) sitting in 3-dimensional space rather than just knots, provides additional structure to better grasp basic questions, such as whether or not a given knot can be untangled and if so how.

Trends in the Classification of Algebraic Varieties and their Sheaves
08 Aug 2021 - 13 Aug 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on the results around the classification of algebraic varieties and their sheaves and how they are applied to resolve long standing questions in algebraic geometry.
