Special RIMS year "Expanding Horizons of Inter-universal Teichmüller Theory"

gm.general-mathematics
2020-04-01 through 2021-03-31
RIMS, Kyoto University
Kyoto; Japan

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

The elucidation of the way in which the additive and multiplicative structure of the integers are intertwined with one another is one of the most important and central themes in number theory. In August 2012, Shinichi Mochizuki (the proposer and chief organizer of the present RIMS Research Project) released preprints of a series of papers concerning "Inter-universal Teichmüller Theory", a theory that constitutes an important advance with regard to elucidating this intertwining. Moreover, the proof of the "ABC Conjecture", which follows as a consequence of the theory, attracted worldwide attention.

The present RIMS Research Project seeks to bring together various researchers not only from the "inter-universal Teichmüller theory community", but also researchers interested in various forms of mathematics related to inter-universal Teichmüller theory, and to provide all such researchers an opportunity to engage in lively discussions concerning the various developments.

Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry

ag.algebraic-geometry co.combinatorics
2021-02-01 through 2021-05-07
ICERM
Providence, RI; USA

Meeting Type: thematic research program

Contact: see conference website

Description

Combinatorial algebraic geometry comprises the parts of algebraic geometry where basic geometric phenomena can be described with combinatorial data, and where combinatorial methods are essential for further progress.

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.

In the opposite direction, geometric methods provide powerful tools for studying combinatorial objects. For example, many deep properties of polytopes are consequences of geometric theorems applied to associated toric varieties. In other cases geometry is a source of inspiration. For instance, long-standing conjectures about matroids have recently been resolved by proving that associated algebraic structures behave as if they are cohomology rings of smooth algebraic varieties.

Much research in combinatorial algebraic geometry relies on mathematical software to explore and enumerate combinatorial structures and compute geometric invariants. Writing the required programs is a considerable part of many research projects. The development of new mathematics software is therefore prioritized in the program.

The program will bring together experts in both pure and applied parts of mathematics as well mathematical programmers, all working at the confluence of discrete mathematics and algebraic geometry, with the aim of creating an environment conducive to interdisciplinary collaboration. The semester will include four week-long workshops, briefly described as follows.

  • A 'boot-camp' aimed at introducing graduate students and early-career researchers to the main directions of research in the program.

  • A research workshop dedicated to geometry arising from flag manifolds, classical and quantum Schubert calculus, combinatorial Hodge theory, and geometric representation theory.

  • A research workshop dedicated to polyhedral spaces and tropical geometry, toric varieties, Newton-Okounkov bodies, cluster algebras and varieties, and moduli spaces and their tropicalizations.

  • A Sage/Oscar Days workshop dedicated to development of programs and software libraries useful for research in combinatorial algebraic geometry. This workshop will also feature a series of lectures by experts in polynomial computations.

London; UK

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pam Bye

Description

Science and technology play an increasingly important role in supporting the defence and security industries. Mathematics is fundamental to these two disciplines, providing a framework for understanding and solving the varied and complex problems faced, and to model systems and scenarios. These models are then used to estimate system performance, find weaknesses in real systems, and suggest improvements. This conference brings together a wide variety of mathematical methods with defence and security applications. The programme will include keynote speakers, presentations and poster sessions, as well as refreshment breaks for informal discussions. It is aimed towards mathematicians, scientists and engineers from both industry and academia, in addition to government and military personnel who have an interest in how mathematics can be applied to defence and security problems. This will be the sixth Mathematics in Defence and Security, conference albeit the first with ‘Security’ explicitly mentioned in the title; the previous conferences each attracted over 100 delegates from a wide range of organisations including Dstl, QinetiQ, AWE, BAE Systems, Thales, Rolls Royce, the IMA, the MoD, academia and international parties.

QUANTUM CHAOS AND NUMBER THEORY A conference in honor of Zeev Rudnick's 60 birthday

nt.number-theory
2021-05-23 through 2021-05-27
Tel Aviv University
Tel Aviv; Israel

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Lior Rosenzweig

Description

The conference “Analytic Number Theory, Quantum Chaos and their Interfaces” aims at gathering distinguished researchers working in either of the disciplines to discuss recent research advances in these fields, and serve as a playground for the exchange of ideas between these, rather diverse, research communities. Another purpose of our conference is to provide a solid educational platform for more junior researchers (PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and early career permanent faculty) who aspire to conduct research in the relevant fields and expose them to some of the outstanding results and open problems as well as to meet other researchers with similar academic interests, with high potential to start new research collaborations. Being a home to Professor Zeev Rudnick, who has contributed greatly to unifying the main subjects of the conference and established some relevant fundamental results in these fields, Tel Aviv University is a natural place for such a meeting to take place.

Curves over Finite Fields

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2021-05-24 through 2021-05-28
Benasque; Spain

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

In the fall semester of 1985, Prof. Jean-Pierre Serre taught at Harvard University an extended series of lectures of his course on Rational Points on Curves over Finite Fields , first taught at Collège de France. Fernando Gouvêa's handwritten notes of this course have been spread all around since then. These notes contain the origin and inspiration of most of the works on the topic since 1985: maximal curves, construction of curves from their jacobians, class field towers, asymptotics of the number of points, etc.

At last, these notes have been edited, revised and are going to be published by the Société Mathématique Française in the Documents Mathématiques series. The present workshop will celebrate the publication of these notes. Experts on the topic will explain the main progress since 1985 and will discuss open questions and new techniques on curves over finite fields. Plenary speakers will be asked to write down their talks in order to publish proceedings which will be a natural continuation of Serre’s book.

Arithmetic, Geometry, Cryptography and Coding Theory

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2021-05-31 through 2021-06-04
CIRM
Luminy; France

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

Our goal is to organise a conference devoted to interactions between pure mathematics (in particular arithmetic and algebraic geometry) and information theory (especially cryptography and coding theory). This conference will be the eighteenth edition, with the first one held in 1987, in a series that has traditionally brought together some of the top specialists in the domains of arithmetic, geometry, and information theory. The corresponding international community is very active and all of the concerned research domains are developing and expanding rapidly.

The conference is therefore also an important occasion for junior mathematicians (graduate students and postdocs) to interact with established researchers in order to exchange ideas. We aim to create an inclusive atmosphere and to encourage forging new connections between researchers of various different backgrounds.

The conference talks will be devoted to recent advances in arithmetic and algebraic geometry and number theory, with a special emphasis on algorithmic and effective results and applications of these fields to information theory.

The conference will last one week and will be organized as follows :

  • There will be one or two plenary talks each day, at the start of each session. They will be given by established researchers, some of whom are new to the established AGC2T community; this will allow for the introduction of emerging topics to the community, which may give rise to applications of arithmetic or algebraic geometry to information theory.
  • There will be several shorter specialized talks in each session, often delivered by junior mathematicians.

As with the previous editions of the AGC2T, we aim publish conference proceedings as a special volume of the Contemporary Mathematics collection of the AMS.

Conference Topics

  • Algebraic and arithmetic geometry over finite fields and global fields.
  • Number theory, especially explicit and algorithmic.
  • Algebro-geometric codes constructed from curves and higher-dimensional algebraic varieties over finite fields and global fields.
  • Arithmetic and geometric aspects of cryptography (symmetric, public key, and post-quantum) and cryptanalysis.

Description

To celebrate Bruno Kahn's 63rd birthday

Motives and quadratic forms interact in fruitful ways: motives have successfully been used to understand and compute invariants of quadratic forms, while conversely, quadratic forms play a surprisingly deep and structural role in the motivic stable homotopy category of schemes. Moreover, over arithmetic bases, motives can be used to extract information of number theoretical nature from quadratic forms or other algebraic or geometric objects.

2021-06-27 through 2021-07-03
Banach Center
Bedlewo; Poland

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Zbigniew Blaszczyk, Pawel Dlotko

Description

Applied and computational topology, one of the most rapidly growing branches of mathematics, is becoming a key tool in applied sciences. It is making impact not only in mathematics, but on the wide interdisciplinary environment including material and medical sciences, data science, robotics. Building upon successful conferences held in Bedlewo in 2013 and 2017, the next edition of Applied Topology in Bedlewo will take place in 2021. Similarly as before, our aim is to bring together scientists from all over the world working in various fields of applied topology. This time we will focus on:

  • random topology,
  • topological methods in combinatorics,
  • topological data analysis and shape descriptors,
  • topological analysis of time-varying data in biology, engineering and finance,
  • topological and geometrical descriptors of porous materials.

Masterclass: High dimensional cohomology of moduli spaces

at.algebraic-topology gt.geometric-topology
2021-06-28 through 2021-07-02
University of Copenhagen, Centre for Geometry and Topology
Copenhagen; Denmark

Meeting Type: Masterclass

Contact: Peter Patzt

Description

In this Masterclass, we will learn about the high dimensional cohomology of moduli spaces such as the moduli space of curves, graphs, and lattices. These moduli spaces are classifying spaces of groups such as mapping class groups, automorphism groups of free groups, and arithmetic groups. We will learn about duality groups whose high dimensional cohomology of these moduli spaces is related to the low degree homology groups with twisted coefficients. We will also discuss graph homology and tropical curves.

The masterclass is aimed at advanced graduate students and postdocs with an interest in algebraic topology and geometric group theory. Connections with algebraic geometry and number theory will be mentioned but this is not the primary focus.

Fundamental Groups and their Representations in Arithmetic Geometry

nt.number-theory ag.algebraic-geometry
2021-07-04 through 2021-07-09
Banff International Research Station
Banff, AB; Canada

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

In arithmetic geometry, one studies solutions to polynomial equations defined with arithmetically interesting coefficients, such as integers or rational numbers. One way to study such objects, which has seen tremendous success in the last several decades, is by investigating their symmetries. Quite surprisingly, in several interesting situations, many of the geometric and arithmetic properties of the objects in question are actually controlled by the object’s symmetries.

Unfortunately, it is usually impossible to study these symmetries directly with current technology. To get around this, mathematicians working in this area often study simplified (often linearized) versions of the symmetries in question, which still capture a significant amount of information about the given object. This workshop will bring together both senior and junior researchers, including graduate students, postdocs, and leading experts, who study objects of geometric and arithmetic origin from the point of view of their symmetries and their linearized variants.

Geometry via Arithmetic

2021-07-11 through 2021-07-16
Banff International Research Station

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

There is an age-old relationship between arithmetic and geometry, going back at least to Euclid's Elements. Historically, it has usually been geometry that has been used to enrich our understanding of arithmetic, but the purpose of this workshop is to study the flow of information in the other direction. Namely, how can arithmetic enhance our understanding of geometry? This meeting will bring together researchers from both sides of the partnership, to explore ways to bind the two fields ever closer together.

Arithmetic Aspects of Deformation Theory

Banff, AB; Canada

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

One focus of modern number theory is to study symmetries of numbers that are roots of polynomial equations. Collections of such symmetries are called Galois groups, and they often encode interesting arithmetical information. The theory of Galois representations provides a way to understand these Galois groups and in particular, how they interact with other areas of mathematics. This workshop will investigate how these Galois representations can be put together into families, and search for new arithmetic applications of these families.

Description

The workshop will bring together people attacking key problems in number theory via techniques involving concrete or computable descriptions. Here, number theory is interpreted broadly, including algebraic and analytic number theory, Galois theory and inverse Galois problems, arithmetic of curves and higher-dimensional varieties, zeta and L-functions and their special values, and modular forms and functions. Considerable attention is paid to computational issues, but the emphasis is on aspects that are of interest to the pure mathematician.

2021-08-01 through 2021-08-06
Banff International Research Station
Banff, AB; Canada

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

Algebraic dynamics is the study of discrete dynamical systems on algebraic varieties. It has its origins in complex dynamics, where one studies self-maps of complex varieties, and now encompasses dynamical systems defined over global fields.

In recent years, researchers have fruitfully investigated the latter by applying number-theoretic techniques, particularly those of Diophantine approximation and geometry, subfields which study the metric and geometric behavior of rational or algebraic points of a variety. The depth of this connection has allowed the mathematical arrow between the two fields to point in both directions; in particular, arithmetic dynamics is providing new approaches to deep classical Diophantine questions involving the arithmetic of abelian varieties. This workshop will focus on communicating and expanding upon the connections between algebraic dynamics and Diophantine geometry. It will bring together leading researchers in both fields, with an aim toward synthesizing recent advances and exploring future directions and applications.

Description

The ICREM is a biennial conference series organised by the Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM), Univeristi Putra Malaysia, since its inaugural in 2003. With the joint efforts from our distinguished partners, the ICREM5 and ICREM8 were successfully organised by the Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), Indonesia in 2011 and 2017 respectively. The ICREM6 was successfully organized by the Institute of Mathematics, Vietnam Academy of Science & Technology (IMVAST), Vietnam in 2013.

This year, INSPEM with ITB, IMVAST, Thai Nguyen University of Education, Vietnam (TNUE), and Universität der Bundeswehr München, Germany (UniBw) are delighted to announce that the 9th International Conference on Research and Education in Mathematics (ICREM9) will be held in the beautiful island of Langkawi, MALAYSIA, from 02 - 06 August 2021.

The ICREM9 will have five Satellite Conferences:

  • Satellite Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD2021)
  • Satellite Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Data-Driven Innovations (AIDDI2021)
  • Satellite Conference on Scientific Computing, Simulation, and Quantitative Instrumentation (SCSQI2021)
  • Satellite Conference on Structural and Analytical Mathematics with Cryptology (SAMC2021)
  • Satellite Conference on Literacy (LE2021)

The Organising Committee is looking forward to welcoming the delegates to the ICREM9 held for the first time in the beautiful island known as The Jewel of Kedah (Langkawi Permata Kedah). We are working towards preparing an attractive scientific programme with diverse topics to create a conducive environment suitable for encouraging and facilitating our delegates to share their knowledge and exchange ideas in all aspects of mathematics and its application.

The venue of the conference is the perfect setting to complement the ICREM9. Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands in the Malacca Strait some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. The islands are a part of the state of Kedah, which is adjacent to the Thai border. Surrounded by the turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. The main island spans about 25 km from north to south and slightly more for east and west. The coastal areas consist of flat, alluvial plains punctuated with limestone ridges. Two-thirds of the island is dominated by forest-covered mountains, hills, and natural vegetation. The island's oldest geological formation, the Machinchang Formation, was the first part of Southeast Asia to rise from the seabed in the Cambrian more than half a billion years ago.

We invite you to discover for yourself our little treasures. We are honoured to host the ICREM9 here in Langkawi, Malaysia. It is our hope that you will join us and learn, enjoy, and most importantly be a part of the ICREM9 community. Organise a session, give a talk, and remember to experience this great island.

The Organising Committee is looking forward to playing host to all members of the mathematical community at the ICREM9 Conference.

See you in Langkawi, MALAYSIA for ICREM9!

Description

Despite the enormous commercial potential that quantum computing presents, the existence of large-scale quantum computers also has the potential to destroy current security infrastructures. Post-quantum cryptography aims to develop new security protocols that will remain secure even after powerful quantum computers are built. This workshop focuses on isogeny-based cryptography, one of the most promising areas in post-quantum cryptography. In particular, we will examine the security, feasibility and development of new protocols in isogeny-based cryptography, as well as the intricate and beautiful pure mathematics of the related isogeny graphs and elliptic curve endomorphism rings. To address the goals of both training and research, the program will be comprised of keynote speakers and working group sessions.

Description

A lattice is a discrete collection of regularly ordered points in space. Lattices are everywhere around us, from the patterned stacked arrangements of fruits and vegetables at the grocery to the regular networks of atoms in crystalline compounds. Today lattices find applications throughout mathematics and the sciences, applications ranging from chemistry to cryptography and Wi-Fi networks.

The focus of this meeting is the connections between lattices and number theory and geometry. Number theory, one of the oldest branches of pure mathematics, is devoted to the study properties of the integers and more sophisticated number systems. Lattices and number theory have many deep connections. For instance using number theory it was recently demonstrated that certain packings of balls in high dimensions are optimally efficient. Lattices also appear naturally when one studies certain spaces that play an important role in number theory; one of the main focuses of this meeting is to investigate computational and theoretical methods to understand such spaces and to expand the frontier of our algorithmic knowledge in working with them.

Description

The cohomology of arithmetic groups is the study of the properties of ``holes'' in geometric spaces that contain information about number theory. The workshop will bring together mathematicians with expertise in number theory, topology, and geometric group theory to tackle these problems and explore recent developments.

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: Michael Stoll

Description

This workshop aims at bringing together the leading experts in the field, covering a broad spectrum reaching from the more theoretically-oriented over the explicit to the algorithmic aspects. The fundamental problem motivating the workshop asks for a description of the set of rational points X(Q) for a given algebraic variety X defined over Q. When X is a curve, the structure of this set is known, and the most interesting question is how to determine it explicitly for a given curve. When X is higher-dimensional, much less is known about the structure of X(Q), even when X is a surface. So here the open questions are much more basic for our understanding of the situation, and on the algorithmic side, the focus is on trying to decide if a given variety does have any rational point at all.

This is a workshop with about 50 participants. Participation is by invitation. Every participant is expected to contribute actively to the success of the event, by giving talks and/or by taking part in the discussions.

7th IMA Conference on Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimization

2022-06-29 through 2022-07-01
University of Birmingham
Birmingham; UK

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pam Bye

Description

The success of modern codes for large-scale optimization is heavily dependent on the use of effective tools of numerical linear algebra. On the other hand, many problems in numerical linear algebra lead to linear, nonlinear or semidefinite optimization problems. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from both communities and to find and communicate points and topics of common interest. This Conference has been organised in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Conference topics include any subject that could be of interest to both communities, such as: • Direct and iterative methods for large sparse linear systems. • Eigenvalue computation and optimization. • Large-scale nonlinear and semidefinite programming. • Effect of round-off errors, stopping criteria, embedded iterative procedures. • Optimization issues for matrix polynomials • Fast matrix computations. • Compressed/sparse sensing • PDE-constrained optimization • Distributed computing and optimization • Applications and real time optimization Invited Speakers Invited Speakers to be confirmed shortly. Registration Registration is currently open at https://my.ima.org.uk/ If you are an IMA Member or you have previously registered for an IMA conference, then you are already on our database.
