New Methods for Zimmer's Conjecture
22 Jan 2018 - 26 Jan 2018 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) , United States
The purpose of this workshop is to bring focused attention on a recent breakthrough by Brown, Fisher and ZIM2018_imageHurtado on Zimmer's Conjecture. The conjecture concerns low dimensional actions of lattices in higher rank Lie groups and was made in 1983. Many approaches to the conjecture have been proposed in the intervening years, but progress has been minimal. The recent breakthrough both dramatically improves the state of knowledge and involves many novel ideas and contributions from various areas of mathematics.
AIM Workshop: Classification of Group von Neumann Algebras
29 Jan 2018 - 02 Feb 2018 • American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, United States
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to developing new ideas and approaches to the classification of group and group-action von Neumann algebras.
The Homological Conjectures: Resolved!
12 Mar 2018 - 16 Mar 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
The homological conjectures in commutative algebra are a network of conjectures that have generated a tremendous amount of activity in the last fifty years. They had largely been resolved for commutative rings that contain a field, but, with the exception of some low dimensional cases, several remained open in mixed characteristic---until recently, when Yves Andr? announced a proof of Hochster's Direct Summand Conjecture. The progress comes from systematically applying Scholze's theory of perfectoid spaces, which had already shown its value by solving formidable problems in number theory and representation theory. One of the goals of the workshop is to cover the ingredients going into the proofs of the Direct Summand Conjecture.
32nd Automorphic Forms Workshop
18 Mar 2018 - 22 Mar 2018 • Tufts University, Medford, United States
Over the last 30 years, the Annual Workshop on Automorphic Forms and Related Topics has remained a small and friendly conference, recognized for both its high-quality research talks and its supportive atmosphere for junior researchers. Participants present cutting-edge research in all areas related to automorphic forms. These include mock modular forms, Maass wave forms, elliptic curves, Siegel and Jacobi modular forms, special values of L-functions, random matrices, quadratic forms, applications of modular forms, and many other topics. For the first time, the conference begins with a graduate student bootcamp on March 18, 2018. Support is available for junior participants; email:firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Quantitative Linear Algebra
18 Mar 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
The program lies at the juncture of mathematics and theoretical computer science in a quest for quantitative answers to finite-dimensional questions. The program brings together topics from a number of important directions, including discrepancy theory, spectral graph theory, random matrices, geometric group theory, ergodic theory, von Neumann algebras, as well as specific research directions such as the Kadison-Singer problem, the Connes embedding conjecture and the Grothendieck inequality. A very important aspect of the program is its aim to deepen the link between research communities working on some infinite-dimensional functional analysis problems that occur in geometric group theory, ergodic theory, von Neumann algebras; and some quantitative finite-dimensional ones that occur in spectral graph theory, random matrices, combinatorial optimization, and the Kadison-Singer problem.
Quantitative Linear Algebra Tutorials
20 Mar 2018 - 23 Mar 2018 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
The program opens with four days of tutorials that will provide an introduction to major themes of the entire program and the four workshops. The goal is to build a foundation for the participants of this program who have diverse scientific backgrounds.

Semester Program Workshop: Computation and Optimization of Energy, Packing, and Covering
09 Apr 2018 - 13 Apr 2018 • ICERM/Brown University, Providence, United States
The packing and covering of equal geometric shapes, such as spheres or convex polyhedra, are classical geometric optimization problems. They have a long mathematical tradition and were for instance part of Hilbert's famous twenty-three problems for the twentieth century. Nevertheless, seemingly simple packing and covering problems are still extremely hard to solve and generally, far from a solution. Likewise, minimal energy problems for pair potentials, of which best-packing is a special case, have many such unresolved questions.
Workshop I: Expected Characteristic Polynomial Techniques and Applications
09 Apr 2018 - 13 Apr 2018 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
A central goal of the program is to further connections between problems in infinite and finite dimensional linear algebra. This workshop will focus on the expected characteristic polynomials of finite-dimensional random matrices, which have played a crucial role in several recent results in this area (including the solution of the Kadison-Singer problem) and seem to offer a middle ground between the two settings. One one hand, their zeros turn out to be related to estimates in asymptotic random matrix theory, von Neumann algebras, and Free Probability theory; on the other hand, they can also be used to control the eigenvalues of the finite random matrices in question, which might come from another area such as spectral graph theory or frame theory.
Semester Program Workshop: Computational Challenges in the Theory of Lattices
23 Apr 2018 - 27 Apr 2018 • ICERM/Brown University, Providence, United States
This workshop will focus on the computational aspects of the theory of Euclidean lattices and on their applications to other areas in mathematics and computer science. It will put emphasis on computational challenges on lattice problems that have recently arisen from unexpected connections to other domains such as algebraic topology, automorphic forms, or cryptography. A major goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from different areas, working with Euclidean lattices, and to facilitate their interactions. Topics will include the reduction theory of lattices and its applications, Voronoi algorithms and their use to compute the cohomology of arithmetic groups, the classification of lattice genera and the computation of spaces of modular forms, the algorithmic aspects of lattice based cryptography, in particular the relationship between the security of cryptographic primitives and the hardness of lattice problems.

Vertex operator algebras, number theory, and related topics on the occasion of Geoffrey Mason's 70th Birthday
11 Jun 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • California State University, Sacramento, United States
The conference will be held at California State University, Sacramento from June 11th to June 15th, 2018 and will include 40 presenters covering a range of topics related to the intersection of vertex operator algebras, number theory, and conformal field theory. This will include topics such as Lie algebras, modular and other automorphic forms, quantum groups, representation theory, group theory, and theoretical physics, as well as applications of these areas. Due to the rapidly changing landscape of these fields, and in particular, their intersection with theoretical physics, this conference serves as a timely and important opportunity for the research community to share and disseminate knowledge in order to advance new research developments. An important theme that will be highlighted is the interplay between the theory of VOAs and automorphic forms.

Nonlinear Algebra (Semester Program)
05 Sep 2018 - 07 Dec 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
The theory, algorithms, and software of linear algebra are familiar tools across mathematics, the applied sciences, and engineering. This ubiquity of linear algebra masks a fairly recent growth of nonlinear algebra in mathematics and its applications to other disciplines. The proliferation of nonlinear algebra has been fueled by recent theoretical advances, efficient implementations of core algorithms, and an increased awareness of these tools.
AIM Workshop: Boltzmann Machines
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, United States
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the mathematics of Boltzmann machines. Researchers have been employing tools in information theory, algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and optimization to understand these models. The result is a situation where further progress probably requires a more intimate merger of these tools.
Semester Program Workshop: Core computational methods
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
This workshop will focus on core algorithms in the three crucial areas in nonlinear algebra: numerical algebraic geometry, symbolic computation, and combinatorial methods. There have been tremendous advances in algorithms in these areas. As applications become more sophisticated, and require more computing resources, the basic algorithms and implementations need to step up to match the demand from applications. This workshop will bring together experts to exchange ideas on new algorithms that are needed and on improvement of existing ones. It will incite collaboration on hybrid algorithms involving computational methods from the three areas. Examples of open problems to be addressed include: certification of numerical methods, and combining numerical, symbolic and combinatorial methods to allow a much larger reach for decomposition algorithms.

Semester Program Workshop: Real algebraic geometry and optimization
15 Oct 2018 - 19 Oct 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
This workshop will focus on techniques and structures in real algebraic geometry and optimization, including computational tools for semi-algebraic sets, semidefinite programming techniques for polynomial optimization, and applications of these tools to problems in computer vision. Real algebraic geometry provides powerful tools to analyze the behavior of optimization problems, the geometry of feasible sets, and to develop new relaxations for hard non-convex problems. On the other hand, numerical solvers for semidefinite programs have led to new fast algorithms in real algebraic geometry. Algebraic methods over the real numbers are essential for many real-world applications. This workshop aims to explore the cutting edge of techniques in real algebraic geometry and convex optimization as well as applications of these tools to problems in computer vision and other information sciences.

Semester Program Workshop: Nonlinear algebra in applications
12 Nov 2018 - 16 Nov 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
Applications often pose many algorithmic, computational, and theoretical challenges, and overcoming these challenges has been a driving force behind many recent innovations in nonlinear algebra. This workshop will bring together mathematicians and practitioners with a focus on recently developed methods that have been motivated by solving problems arising in applications. Three key hallmarks of the methods presented are efficient computation of solutions, exploitation of structure, and reformulation of numerically unstable systems. Some of the topics planned for discussion include algebraic cryptanalysis and coding theory, chemical reaction networks, computational biology, computer-aided geometric design, applications of enumerative and tropical geometry, gauge and string theory in physics, and applications to statistics such as probabilistic graphical models and singular learning theory.

Derived Algebraic Geometry
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Derived algebraic geometry is an extension of algebraic geometry that provides a convenient framework for directly treating non-generic geometric situations (such as non-transverse intersections in intersection theory), in lieu of the more traditional perturbative approaches (such as the "moving" lemma). This direct approach, in addition to being conceptually satisfying, has the distinct advantage of preserving the symmetries of the situation, which makes it much more applicable. In particular, in recent years, such techniques have found applications in diverse areas of mathematics, ranging from arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric representation theory, and homotopy theory. This semester long program will be dedicated to exploring these directions further, and finding new connections.
Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces are two important areas of Algebraic Geometry that have recently witnessed a flurry of activity and substantial progress on many fundamental open questions. In this program we aim to bring together key researchers in these and related areas to highlight the recent exciting progress and to explore future avenues of research. This program will focus on the following themes: Geometry and Derived Categories, Birational Algebraic Geometry, Moduli Spaces of Stable Varieties, Geometry in Characteristic p>0, and Applications of Algebraic Geometry: Elliptic Fibrations of Calabi-Yau Varieties in Geometry, Arithmetic and the Physics of String Theory.
