Enumerative Geometry Beyond Numbers
16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Traditional enumerative geometry asks certain questions to which the expected answer is a number: for instance, the number of lines incident with two points in the plane (1, Euclid), or the number of twisted cubic curves on a quintic threefold (317 206 375). It has however been recognized for some time that the numerics is often just the tip of the iceberg: a deeper exploration reveals interesting geometric, topological, representation-, or knot-theoretic structures. This semester-long program will be devoted to these hidden structures behind enumerative invariants, concentrating on the core fields where these questions start: algebraic and symplectic geometry.
Structures in Enumerative Geometry
19 Mar 2018 - 23 Mar 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together specialists working on understanding the many-faceted mathematical structures underlying problems in enumerative geometry. Topics represented at the workshop will include geometric representation theory, supersymmetric gauge theory, string theory, knot theory, and derived geometry, all of which have had a profound effect on the development of modern enumerative geometry.

ICERM Semester Workshop: Computation and Optimization of Energy, Packing, and Covering
09 Apr 2018 - 13 Apr 2018 • Providence, RI, 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 20th 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. However, in recent years several new developments with computer assisted approaches have led to previously unexpected breakthrough results. These involve massive computer searches and techniques from numerical optimization, as well as the creation and application of new optimization techniques, such as specific semi-definite programming bounds. New techniques for computer assisted certified proofs allow one to obtain results that would otherwise have been difficult, if not impossible, to check.

ICERM Topical Workshop: Birational Geometry and Arithmetic
14 May 2018 - 18 May 2018 • Providence, RI, United States
Recent developments in the minimal model program in positive characteristic and birational geometry have found purchase within Arithmetic Geometry, e.g., around questions of exceptional sets involved in Manin's conjecture on points of bounded height. In turn, arithmetic perspectives afforded by Manin's conjecture are starting to shed light on the geometry of spaces of rational curves. Our goal in this workshop is to bring together two camps of geometers (birational and arithmetic) who have had few opportunities to interact on a large scale. The points of contact so far are amenable to explicit computations, e.g., determination of presentations of Cox rings for Fano varieties, finite field method applications to stable rationality problems, algorithms to compute Peyre's constant in Manin's conjecture, point counts on spaces of rational curves, and these computational problems will form an important component of the workshop, which will be complemented with theoretical developments.

Number Theoretic Methods in Hyperbolic Geometry
10 Jun 2018 - 16 Jun 2018 • University of Rhode Island, Providence RI, United States
The primary focus during the workshop will be to introduce the participants to problems at the interface of geometry and number theory that are currently attracting significant interest, and provide them with the tools necessary to make progress on some open questions. The number theoretic techniques that we will use to address these problems make use of quaternion algebras over number fields, Mahler measures of algebraic integers, and classical results from multiplicative number theory. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to start a dialogue between young mathematicians from different backgrounds that will lead to new and long-lasting collaborations between fields that have a great deal to say to one another. No background in either subject is expected.

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.

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.

Geometry and Learning from Data in 3D and Beyond
11 Mar 2019 - 14 Jun 2019 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Fast acquisition and routine use of 3D data due to the advance of modern technology and computer power makes 3D description of the real world imminent and practical in many applications such as 3D modeling, GL2019 Imagevirtual reality, 3D camera, 3D printing and prototyping, etc. It is increasingly important and urgent for efficient processing, analysis, and intelligent use of a large variety of 3D data. The goals of this program are to (1) further advance mathematical and computational techniques for 3D modeling and shape analysis, (2) design effective problem specific approaches combining geometry and machine learning, i.e., learning geometry from geometry, (3) generalize our understandings and techniques for shape analysis to geometric data analysis in higher dimensions.
