Workshop — Holomorphic Differentials in Mathematics and Physics
18 Nov 2019 - 22 Nov 2019 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), Berkeley
Abstract:
Holomorphic differentials on Riemann surfaces have long held a distinguished place in low dimensional geometry, dynamics and representation theory. Recently it has become apparent that they constitute a common feature of several other highly active areas of current research in mathematics and also at the interface with physics. In some cases the areas themselves (such as stability conditions on Fukaya-type categories, links to quantum integrable systems, or the physically derived construction of so-called spectral networks) are new, while in others the novelty lies more in the role of the holomorphic differentials (for example in the study of billiards in polygons, special - Hitchin or higher Teichmuller - components of representation varieties, asymptotic properties of Higgs bundle moduli spaces, or in new interactions with algebraic geometry).

Workshop — (∞, n)-categories,factorization homology, and algebraic K-theory
23 Mar 2020 - 27 Mar 2020 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on recent developments in factorization homology, parametrized homotopy theory, and algebraic K-theory. These seemingly disparate topics are unified by a common methodology, which leverages universal properties and unforeseen descent by way of higher category theory. Furthermore, they enjoy powerful and complementary roles in application to the cyclotomic trace.

Summer School — Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory
27 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Evanston, IL, United States
Organizer:
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
Abstract:
The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.

Free Resolutions and Representation Theory
03 Aug 2020 - 07 Aug 2020 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The structure of free resolutions plays an important role in analyzing singularities of varieties of low codimension. Codimension two Cohen-Macaulay varieties (resp. codimension three Gorenstein varieties) come from rank conditions on an n x (n+1) matrix (resp. a skew-symmetric (2n+1) x (2n+1) matrix). This workshop seeks to push such results to Cohen-Macaulay varieties of codimension three and Gorenstein varieties of codimension four.
