Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on recent developments in factorization homology, parametrized homotopy theory, and algebraic K-theory.

Algebraic Theory of Differential and Difference Equations, Model Theory and their Applications
15 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The purpose of the summer school will be to introduce graduate students to effective methods in algebraic theories of differential and difference equations with emphasis on their model-theoretic foundations and to demonstrate recent applications of these techniques to studying dynamic models arising in sciences. While these topics comprise a coherent and rich subject, they appear in graduate coursework in at best a piecemeal way, and then only as components of classes for other aims. With this Summer Graduate School, students will learn both the theoretical basis of differential and difference algebra and how to use these methods to solve practical problems. Beyond the lectures, the graduate students will meet daily in problem sessions and will participate in one-on-one mentoring sessions with the lecturers and organizers.

Sums of Squares Method in Geometry, Combinatorics and Optimization
13 Jul 2020 - 24 Jul 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The study of nonnegative polynomials and sums of squares is a classical area of real algebraic geometry dating back to Hilbert's 17th problem. It also has rich connections to real analysis via duality and moment problems. In the last 15 years, sums of squares relaxations have found a wide array of applications from very applied areas (e.g., robotics, computer vision, and machine learning) to theoretical applications (e.g., extremal combinatorics, theoretical computer science).

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.

Structure and randomness in locally symmetric spaces
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The study of discrete subgroups of Lie groups and the associated locally symmetric manifolds has a long and rich history, with powerful interconnections between the geometry of the locally symmetric space, topology of towers of its finite covers, and number-theoretic aspects. More recently dynamical and probabilistic techniques have been fruitfully employed to study these groups and spaces. The workshop will take stock of recent developments in these highly active fields from a variety of backgrounds.
