Algebraic Cycles, L-Values, and Euler Systems

nt.number-theory ag.algebraic-geometry
2023-01-17 through 2023-05-26
MSRI
Berkeley, CA; USA

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

The fundamental conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer relating the Mordell–Weil ranks of elliptic curves to their L-functions is one of the most important and motivating problems in number theory. It resides at the heart of a collection of important conjectures (due especially to Deligne, Beilinson, Bloch and Kato) that connect values of L-functions and their leading terms to cycles and Galois cohomology groups.

The study of special algebraic cycles on Shimura varieties has led to progress in our understanding of these conjectures. The arithmetic intersection numbers and the p-adic regulators of special cycles are directly related to the values and derivatives of L-functions, as shown in the pioneering theorem of Gross-Zagier and its p-adic avatars for Heegner points on modular curves. The cohomology classes of special cycles (and related constructions such as Eisenstein classes) form the foundation of the theory of Euler systems, providing one of the most powerful methods known to prove vanishing or finiteness results for Selmer groups of Galois representations.

The goal of this semester is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of this young but fast-developing subject, and to make progress on understanding the mysterious relations between L-functions, Euler systems, and algebraic cycles.

Diophantine Geometry

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2023-01-17 through 2023-05-26
MSRI
Berkeley, CA; USA

Meeting Type: thematic program

Contact: see conference website

Description

Number Theory concerns the study of properties of the integers, rational numbers, and other structures that share similar features. It is a central branch of mathematics with a well-known feature: it is often the case that easy-to-state problems in number theory turn out to be exceedingly difficult (e.g. Fermat’s Last Theorem), and their study leads to groundbreaking discoveries in other fields of mathematics.

A fundamental theme in number theory concerns the study of integer and rational solutions to Diophantine equations. This topic originated at least 3,700 years ago (as documented in babylonian clay tablets) and it has evolved into the highly sophisticated field of Diophantine Geometry. There are deep and fruitful interactions between Diophantine Geometry and seemingly distant fields such as representation theory, algebraic geometry, topology, complex analysis, and mathematical logic, to mention a few. In recent years, these connections have led to a large number of new results and, specially, to the partial or complete resolution of important conjectures in the field.

While the study of rational solutions of diophantine equations initiated thousands of years ago, our knowledge on this subject has dramatically improved in recent years. Especially, we have witnessed spectacular progress in aspects such as height formulas and height bounds for algebraic points, automorphic methods, unlikely intersection problems, and non-abelian and p-adic approaches to algebraic degeneracy of rational points. All these groundbreaking advances in the study of rational and algebraic points in varieties will be the central theme of the semester program “Diophantine Geometry” at MSRI. The main purpose of this program is to bring together experts as well as enthusiastic young researchers to learn from each other, to initiate and continue collaborations, to update on recent breakthroughs, and to further advance the field by making progress on fundamental open problems and by developing further connections with other branches of mathematics. We trust that younger mathematicians will greatly contribute to the success of the program with their new ideas. It is our hope that this program will provide a unique opportunity for women and underrepresented groups to make outstanding contributions to the field, and we strongly encourage their participation.

Meeting Type: Masterclass

Contact: Shachar Carmeli, Lars Hesselholt, Ryomei Iwasa, Mikala Jansen

Description

The masterclass will present spectacular recent advances in motivic filtrations and their applications. To briefly put this in context, every cohomology theory, in arithmetic geometry and elsewhere, should arise as the graded pieces of a motivic filtration of some localizing invariant, algebraic K-theory and topological cyclic homology being notable examples. The definition of the appropriate motivic filtrations, however, was long elusive. Voevodsky received the 2002 Fields medal, in part, for his definition of the motivic filtration of algebraic K-theory of schemes smooth over a field. This definition, however, was based on algebraic cycles, which are notoriously difficult to handle. In 2018, Bhatt, Morrow, and Scholze defined a motivic filtration of p-complete topological cyclic homology in an entirely different way, which is much simpler and easier to employ elsewhere, and this breakthrough has led to numerous advances.

Building on work of Antieau, Morin, and, independently, Bhatt-Lurie, have refined the Bhatt-Morrow-Scholze filtration to a filtration of non-completed topological cyclic homology, and Morin discovered that its graded pieces precisely account for an archimedean factor in a conjectural formula for the special values of the Hasse-Weil zeta function of a regular scheme, proper over the integers. It is very exciting to see that such quantative archimedean information can be extracted from topological cyclic homology! More recently, Hahn-Raksit-Wilson introduced the even filtration, and showed that it accounts for both the Bhatt-Morrow-Scholze filtration and the Morin and Bhatt-Lurie refinements thereof. It might also recover and extend Voevodsky's filtration?

Arithmetic and Information theory

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2023-01-30 through 2023-03-03
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques
Luminy; France

Meeting Type: thematic month

Contact: see conference website

Description

The thematic month “Arithmetic and Information Theory” focuses on arithmetic geometry, information theory and their interplay.

Arithmetic geometry is a fundamental and growing area of research in modern mathematics, deeply connected to almost all of its branches. As a measure of its importance, about a quarter of the Fields medalists have worked on problems in arithmetic geometry. There is a vast number of different techniques that have been developed in the field. Algebraic Geometry Codes Theory studies (amongst others) varieties, and in particular curves, with many rational points, having in mind that maximal curves are the aspirational target to obtain codes with the best correction rate. This maximality corresponds to extremal points in the distribution of the Frobenius endomorphism acting on the Tate module of the Jacobian of the curves. For elliptic curves, we are confronted with the Sato-Tate conjecture which is concerned with the statistics to modulo p reductions of families of elliptic curves defined over the field of rational numbers. Galois representations on ´etale cohomology play a central role in this field. The most remarkable aspects of this series of conferences is the omnipresent exchange between applied (codes, cryptography) and pure (arithmetic and geometry) mathematics. The first branch supplies the second with new problems. For example, the impulse of Serre, Manin, and Ihara, motivated by the introduction of Goppa codes, led to hundreds of articles devoted to the study of the number of points on curves over finite fields. A more specialized and recent example concerns quantum codes that lead to the study of couples code/sub-code having special properties. As a counterpart, arithmetic and geometry allow remarkable new results to be obtained in their applications. For example, cryptosystems constructed from elliptic curves over finite fields, or the best asymptotically excellent codes constructed using algebraic varieties.

The University of Sydney
Sydney; Australia

Meeting Type: Conference and workshop

Contact: Asilata Bapat, Andrew Mathas, Daniel Tubbenhauer, Oded Yacobi

Description

This conference focuses on categorification and its applications in representation theory. Categorification is something of an art, where one mathematical object is replaced with another richer, and often categorical, one that often reveals deeper structual properties. Important examples of categorification in representation theory include the geometric categorifications of Ginzburg, Lusztig and Nakajima, which realize quantum groups and their representations in a geometric framework, and Khovanov's categorification of the Jones polynomial, and Elias and Williamson's proof of the Kazhdan-Lusztig positivity conjectures and Soergel's conjectures.

This conference brings some of the top experts in this field to discuss recent advances. The conference consists of:

A workshop, February 6-10, with three lecture series on different aspects of categorification The main conference, February 13-17.

Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques
Luminy; France

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

The theme of the conference will be explicit and computational methods in number theory and arithmetic geometry in a broad sense. The format will include scientific talks as well as time for informal collaboration and for coding projects related to (for example) PARI/GP, SageMath, Magma, OSCAR or the L-Functions and Modular Forms Database.

On the one hand, various topics where explicit computations have been the key for proving important results will be presented. These will be found in the context of modular forms, the study of rational points, as well as results towards the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. On the other hand, we will also focus on recently stated conjectures, for example the paramodular conjecture by Brumer and Kramer, and challenge participants to exhibit new examples to support such conjectures (in the case of the paramodular conjecture only one non trivial example is currently known).

We expect that the colloquium will lead to the emergence of new ideas and methods at the interface of these different fields, to new results as well as to new projects and collaborations.

This conference will be organized with the support of the National Research Agency in the framework of the project "MELODIA".

Learning Workshop on BPS States and 3-Manifolds

2023-02-27 through 2023-03-03
ICTP
Trieste; Italy

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: see conference website

Description

The main scientific theme of the workshop is counting BPS states in physical systems associated to 3-manifolds or links, and interpretation of these counts as old or new topological invariants.

Although the ideas behind such relations appeared already in the late 90s, the recent years have seen some dramatic new developments. The goal of this learning workshop is to bring together physicists and mathematicians who are experts in the subject and also those who would like to enter the field. In particular, the talks will be given both by senior scientists and junior ones, including PhD students who only recently began working on the subject. The talks will be supplemented by dedicated discussion sessions where experts can answer questions that will be submitted by participants to the moderator in advance, or asked directly during the session.

Topics:

-- "Z-hat" and F_K invariants counting BPS states in 6d superconformal field theory compactified on 3- manifolds, and their relation to known invariants of 3-manifolds and links

-- Knots-quivers correspondence and its generalization to knot complements

-- Properties of generating functions counting BPS states, including: modularity, relation to characters of (logarithmic) Vertex Operator Algebras, GW/DT invariants

ICMS
Edinburgh; UK

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

There is a history of fruitful links between low-dimensional topology and number theory, going back at least to Mazur's observation that primes in number rings can be viewed as analogues of knots in a 3-manifold. More recently, the introduction of arithmetic gauge theory by M. Kim and collaborators paves the way to further bring ideas from theoretical physics to bear on fundamental problems in number theory and arithmetic geometry. 

This conference aims to explore this exciting new direction, and the links between number theory, topology and physics in general, with a particular focus on the role played by gauge fields as a unifying framework. In doing this, we will bring together experts and early career researchers in each of the areas mentioned above, with a view to fostering new collaborations and enabling participants to become acquainted with recent developments.

Non-archimedean geometry and eigenvarieties

2023-03-06 through 2023-03-17
University of Heidelberg
Heidelberg; Germany

Meeting Type: graduate spring school

Contact: see conference website

Description

Families of p-adic automorphic forms are well studied objects of arithmetic geometry since the pioneering work of Hida and Coleman. Their study resulted in the definition of geometric objects, called eigenvarieties, that parametrize systems of Hecke eigenvalues of p-adic automorphic forms. Conversely, the rich geometry of these varieties gives insights about p-adic (and thereby also about classical) automorphic forms. Recent techniques from perfectoid geometry, locally analytic representation theory and the point of view of the p-adic Langlands program give new insights and impulses.

The spring school will give an introduction to both p-adic automorphic forms and eigenvarieties as well as the necessary background in p-adic analytic geometry. The courses will be complemented by research talks that will focus on recent developments in the area.

The first week of the spring school will focus on p-adic analytic geometry, the analogue of complex analytic geometry over p-adic base fields. We will study classical rigid analytic spaces from the point of view of adic spaces and introduce perfectoid spaces. The second week will focus on p-adic automorphic forms and eigenvarieties. We will introduce and compare several approaches to p-adic automorphic forms.

Description

ln this workshop, we will consider variants of Artin's primitive root conjecture leading to the study of the Galois groups of various radical extensions. Beyond the case of the multiplicative group studied by Lenstra and others, there are now also interesting results for elliptic radicals, and for division points in more general abelian varieties. ln this context, the elliptic analogue of Artin's conjecture is the Lang-Trotter conjecture, which is still open after more than 40 years.

The Galois representations associated to various division points in abelian varieties are central to understanding the Galois groups of the radical extensions that one tries to explicitly describe in this context, as they control the behaviour of the primes in the underlying problems. Understanding these Galois representations, and the entanglement between the extensions generated by different prime-power radicals, is essential to progress in this area.

ln this circle of problems and questions, one encounters interesting restrictions to local-global principles that will be addressed in this workshop, not only in the context of radical extensions.

Description

A central topic in Diophantine Geometry is to understand how the geometry of a variety influences the arithmetic of its algebraic points, and conversely. Conjectures of Bombieri, Lang, and Vojta suggest that rational points of algebraic varieties satisfying suitable approximation conditions, are algebraically degenerate. On the other hand, conjectures on unlikely intersections suggest that algebraic points of special type —e.g. torsion points in semi-abelian varieties, special points in Shimura varieties— avoid subvarieties, unless the subvariety itself is also special (in a technical sense).

In recent years, a number of techniques have led to outstanding progress on Lang-Vojta conjectures, such as the Subspace Theorem, p-adic approaches to finiteness, and modular methods. Similarly, spectacular progress has been achieved on unlikely intersection conjectures thanks to new methods and tools, such as height formulas for special points, connections to model theory, refined counting results, and new theorems of Ax-Shanuel type (bi-algebraic geometry).

The goal of this workshop is to create the opportunity for these two groups to interact, to share their techniques, to update on the most recent progress, and to attack the outstanding open questions in the field.

The two directions described above are rather technical and specialized, and it seems necessary to bring together these groups of researchers to explain to each other not only the latest developments in their fields, but also the methods that made possible these breakthroughs. Thus, in this workshop we expect to have lectures explaining the main methods, as well as talks presenting the most recent progress in the subject by the world leading experts.

Description

The field of arithmetic statistics is a fast-moving area of number theory, dealing with distributional results for many basic and important objects: ranks of elliptic curves, central values of L-functions, number fields, modular symbols, orbits of discrete groups etc. The techniques involved come from diverse areas of mathematics e.g. automorphic forms, ergodic theory, spectral theory, dynamical systems, probabilistic number theory, representation theory and random matrix theory. This workshop intends to bring together researchers of all career levels to present their work and exchange ideas and techniques on arithmetic statistics. Motivated by the programme of Mazur and Rubin based on their computational study of elliptic curves over abelian extensions of fixed degree, the meeting will focus on modular symbols, Manin's noncommutative modular symbols, equidistribution of lattice points on the sphere, Heegner points, and closed geodesics, including the error term in the Prime Geodesic Theorem.

There will be invited talks lasting 50 or 25 minutes and other events aimed at facilitating discussions among participants.

Meeting Type: conference

Description

The theme of the conference is a type of number theory that has become very popular over the last decades, and that is influenced by the possibility of « experimentally » studying arithmetic objects with the help of a computer. Thanks to the wide availability of computer algebra systems, essentially any number theorist nowadays has this possibility at his fingertips. There are concrete objects that are not so easily determined « by hand », such as fundamental units in number fields of higher degree, or Mordell-Weil generators of point groups of elliptic curves, and a first impression of « what these typically look like » is often obtained by numerical experimentation.

Over the years, substantial datasets relating to number fields, elliptic curves and L-series have become available, enhancing our understanding of the arithmetic world somewhat beyond only the smallest examples, which may fail to show the true asymptotic behaviour.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Daniele Garzoni

Description

Interest in specialization of polynomials and Galois groups goes back at least to the work of Hilbert on the inverse Galois problem. This theory has found an abundance of applications in Algebra, Number Theory, Group Theory, and Arithmetic Geometry. In recent years, the area is blooming and we see striking results that open completely new horizons: The discovery of Hilbert irreducibility properties of algebraic groups, its connection with expanders and random walks, the interrelation with arithmetic-geometric properties of parametrizing varieties, and the exciting progress on the Cohen-Lenstra heuristics. The conference aims to bring together leading experts and young researchers interested in the area. We plan to leave an abundance of free time, dedicated to informal discussions. We believe that this will encourage the transfer of ideas, techniques, and will foster new collaborations and new research directions.

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.

Description

During the 2023-24 academic year the School will have a special program on the p -adic arithmetic geometry, organized by Jacob Lurie and Bhargav Bhatt, who will be the Distinguished Visiting Professor.

The last decade has witnessed some remarkable foundational advances in p-adic arithmetic geometry (e.g., the creation of perfectoid geometry and the ensuing reorganization of p-adic Hodge theory). These advances have already led to breakthroughs in multiple different areas of mathematics (e.g., significant progress in the Langlands program and the resolution of multiple long-standing conjectures in commutative algebra), have uncovered new phenomena that merit further investigation (e.g., the discovery of new structures on algebraic K-theory, new period spaces in p-adic analytic geometry, and new bounds on torsion in singular cohomology), and have made hitherto inaccessible terrains more habitable (e.g., birational geometry in mixed characteristic). This special year intends to bring together a mix of people interested in various facets of the subject, with an eye towards sharing ideas and questions across fields.

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: Karim Belabas, Bjorn Poonen, Fernando Rodriguez Villegas

Description

The aim of this meeting is to 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.

Because of limited space, participation is by invitation only.
