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.

Stability in mirror symmetry
07 Dec 2020 - 11 Dec 2020 • San Jose, California, United States
Organizer:
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring together mathematicians from a variety of backgrounds to discuss a central problem in mirror symmetry: the existence of special Lagrangian submanifolds, and their holomorphic mirrors, stable vector bundles. These two classes of objects form a set of canonical geometric objects, described by fully nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), which play a central role in mirror symmetry. Dating back to work of Thomas-Yau, it has long been conjectured that the existence of solutions to these nonlinear PDEs is equivalent to a purely algebraic notion of stability. This conjectural picture connects diverse fields of mathematics, ranging from stability conditions on derived categories, to symplectic geometry and the Fukaya category, to the study of the Lagrangian mean curvature flow and fully nonlinear systems of PDEs.
Topics:
The central topics for the workshop are: The Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow, singularity analysis, and connections with the Fukaya category. The deformed Hermitian-Yang-Mills equation, infinite dimensional GIT, and fully nonlinear systems. Understanding the Thomas-Yau conjecture for toric Fano manifolds and Landau-Ginzburg models.

Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry
01 Feb 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Research in combinatorial algebraic geometry utilizes combinatorial techniques to answer questions about geometry. Typical examples include predictions about singularities, construction of degenerations, and computation of geometric invariants such as Gromov-Witten invariants, Euler characteristics, the number of points in intersections, multiplicities, genera, and many more. The study of positivity properties of geometric invariants is one of the driving forces behind the interplay between geometry and combinatorics. Flag manifolds and Schubert calculus are particularly rich sources of invariants with positivity properties.

Sage/Oscar Days for Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry
15 Feb 2021 - 19 Feb 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on the development of software to facilitate research in combinatorial algebraic geometry, based on the SAGE Mathematical Software System and the OSCAR Computer Algebra System. Special attention will be given to efficient computations with multi-variate polynomials, which is a critical part of many algorithms in combinatorial algebraic geometry. Aside from development of software, the workshop will feature a series of talks about polynomial computations, as well as introductory lectures about Sage and Oscar.

Geometry and Combinatorics from Root Systems
22 Mar 2021 - 26 Mar 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together a diverse group of researchers working on combinatorial and geometric aspects related to spaces with symmetries. The workshop will cover problems arising from various flavors of Schubert Calculus and enumerative geometry on flag manifolds, and problems from geometric representation theory and combinatorial Hodge theory. The topics covered include the study of Littlewood-Richardson coefficients, quantum cohomology and quantum K theory of flag manifolds, Maulik-Okounkov stable envelopes and characteristic classes, conformal blocks, and combinatorics related to moduli spaces, Macdonald theory, and quiver polynomials, Soergel bimodules, Hodge theory of matroids. These are trends in a rapidly developing area, and our aim is to facilitate interactions among researchers who work on different problems but employ similar techniques, at the intersection of algebraic geometry, combinatorics, and representation theory.

Algebraic Geometry and Polyhedra
12 Apr 2021 - 16 Apr 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
The workshop will revolve around the interplay between algebraic geometry and combinatorial structures such as graphs, polytopes, and polyhedral complexes. In particular, the workshop will foster dialogue among groups of researchers who use similar combinatorial geometric tools for different purposes within algebraic geometry and adjacent fields. The topics covered will include Newton-Okounkov bodies, Ehrhart theory, toric geometry, tropical geometry, matroids, and interactions with mirror symmetry.
