The Homological Conjectures: Resolved!
12 Mar 2018 - 16 Mar 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
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
Abstract:
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:organizers@automorphicformsworkshop.org for more information.

Semester Program Workshop: Computation and Optimization of Energy, Packing, and Covering
09 Apr 2018 - 13 Apr 2018 • ICERM/Brown University, Providence, United States
Abstract:
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.

Semester Program Workshop: Computational Challenges in the Theory of Lattices
23 Apr 2018 - 27 Apr 2018 • ICERM/Brown University, Providence, United States
Abstract:
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.

AIM Workshop: Symplectic four-manifolds through branched coverings
14 May 2018 - 18 May 2018 • American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, United States
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to studying problems in the topology of symplectic four-manifolds by using connections with gauge theory, holomorphic curves, and algebraic geometry. The focus will be on concretely building connections between these areas and symplectic topology while working directly on specific problems in symplectic topology posed throughout the workshop.

Summer Graduate School: Derived Categories
25 Jun 2018 - 06 Jul 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
The goal of the school is to give an introduction to basic techniques for working with derived categories, with an emphasis on the derived categories of coherent sheaves on algebraic varieties. A particular goal will be to understand Orlov's equivalence relating the derived category of a projective hypersurface with matrix factorizations of the corresponding polynomial.

AIM Workshop: Boltzmann Machines
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, United States
Abstract:
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.

Derived Algebraic Geometry
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
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.
