Description

Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces are two important areas of Algebraic Geometry that have recently witnessed a flurry of activity and substantial progress on many fundamental open questions. In this program we aim to bring together key researchers in these and related areas to highlight the recent exciting progress and to explore future avenues of research.

This program will focus on the following themes: Geometry and Derived Categories, Birational Algebraic Geometry, Moduli Spaces of Stable Varieties, Geometry in Characteristic p>0, and Applications of Algebraic Geometry: Elliptic Fibrations of Calabi-Yau Varieties in Geometry, Arithmetic and the Physics of String Theory

Meeting Type: research program

Description

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.

Reinventing Rational Points

Institut Henri Poincare

Meeting Type: thematic program

Contact: see conference website

Description

Rational points on algebraic varieties represent a modern way of thinking about one of the oldest problems in mathematics: integral and rational solutions of Diophantine equations. In arithmetic geometry one views rational points in the context of geometric properties of underlying algebraic varieties. In analytic number theory many different analytic techniques are used to count the number of rational or integral points, and so understand their “average” behaviour. In logic, rational points feature prominently in the work on Hilbert’s Tenth Problem over Q, which asks for an algorithm to decide the existence of rational solutions to all Diophantine equations. Here one searches for examples of “weird” or “far from average” behaviour of rational points.

There is a large body of conjectures that describe the behaviour of rational points. They include various versions of Mazur’s conjectures on the real topological closure of the set of rational points. A related circle of conjectures deals with the Brauer–Manin obstruction designed to describe the closure of the set of rational points inside the topological space of adelic points. It is conjectured that the Brauer–Manin obstruction should exactly describe this closure for certain classes of algebraic varieties such as rationally connected varieties, K3 surfaces and algebraic curves. Supportive heuristic and theoretical evidence for these difficult conjectures is slowly emerging from the work of many people. The Batyrev–Manin conjectures on the growth of rational points of bounded height have received much attention by analytic number theorists. New techniques that have revolutionised analytic number theory, such as additive combinatorics (Green, Tao, Ziegler) or arithmetic invariant theory (Bhargava, Gross), have made it possible to solve some of the long standing problems in arithmetic geometry. A new feature in recent years has been an increased interaction between the analytic and geometric thinking: questions motivated by various counting problems give rise to novel geometric ideas, whereas conjectures coming from geometry open up new fields of investigation for analytic number theorists.

The aim of this thematic period is to bring together senior and junior mathematicians from the various domains related to rational points to foster new interactions and new research.

Description

This three-week program on equidistribution considers interactions between probability, number theory, computer science and mathematical logic.

An infinite sequence s(1), s(2), s(3), ... of real numbers is equidistributed (also called uniformly distributed) modulo 1 if the sequence formed by the fractional parts of each term is equidistributed in the unit interval, which means that for each subinterval of the unit interval, asymptotically, the proportion of terms falling within that subinterval is equal to its length. For instance, any sequence of independent identically distributed (i.i.d) random real variables is equidistributed modulo 1. We do not know whether the sequence of integral powers of e (or pi, log 2, root 2, etc.) is equidistributed modulo 1.

To determine whether a given sequence of real numbers is equidistributed and, if this is the case, to estimate the speed of convergence to equidistribution (discrepancy) are usually difficult questions. Lacunary sequences are those where the ratio of successive terms is bounded away from one. A particular family consists of the sequences where the ratio of successive terms is a constant integer greater than 1. These are of the form (b^k x)_k where x is a real and b is an integer greater than 1. These sequences are equidistibuted modulo 1 exactly when every block of digits in the base b expansion of x occurs with the same asymptotic frequency as every other block of equal length. Emile Borel called these real numbers x normal to base b. We know no example of a familiar mathematical constant which is normal to some integer base.

One challenge is to prove the existence of real numbers enjoying simultaneously prescribed digital and Diophantine approximation properties, a more daunting challenge is to give explicit examples of such numbers. In between, one can try to give computable constructions of them.

An analog of equidistribution occurs when using Monte-Carlo simulation with pseudo random numbers, many problems remain to be studied from the point of view of number theory and computer science.

University of Normandy, ENSICAEN, CNRS, France
CAEN, NORMANDY; France

Meeting Type: International Workshop

Contact: Zakaria LAKHDARI

Description

Recently, there has a wave of interest in developing continuous or discrete nonlocal models and PDEs for a variety of problems arising in physics, biology, social sciences, image processing and machine learning.

Whereas local models based on classical differential operators capture the properties at point for a given function, nonlocal models based on integral operators of an appropriate structure can be used to model phenomena characterized by singular or discontinuous behaviors. They can also be used to approximate local models as the width of the interaction kernel shrinks to zero on the space of sufficiently smooth functions.

This workshop on Nonlocal Models, PDEs and Applications 2019 will focus on recent developments in the area of nonlocal models, PDEs and their various applications. It will bring together internationally recognized experts for young researchers and students are encouraged to present their work during poster sessions.

p-adic Modular Forms and p-adic L-functions

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2019-05-20 through 2019-05-24
Lake Como; Italy

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

Modular forms and L-functions have played a central role in Number Theory in the last decades: they have been the source of inspiration for several central conjectures that have been the fuel of the research since they have been formulated up to now. Between them, the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture and the Riemann Hypothesis, two of the six still open problems of the Millennium Prize Problems set by the Clay Mathematics Institute, Hilbert’s Twelfth and Nine Problem, the Stark’s conjectures and other important related conjectures such as the Main Conjectures of Iwasawa theory and Leopoldt’s conjecture. They also provide key insights towards deep elementary conjectures in Number Theory. An emblematic example is Fermat’s Last Theorem, which states that there are no positive integers a, b, and c satisfying the equation aⁿ+bⁿ=cⁿ for n≥3, proved by A. Wiles. It was the result of the efforts of several mathematicians which had the insight to apply the theory of elliptic curves, modular forms and Galois representations to this problem.

As explained, these conjectures are very deep and modular forms and L-functions appear sometime in an amazing way. Another unexpected feature of them is that they present p-adic analogues which can be approached and, sometime, even imply instances of the original conjectures. The aim of the conference is to join together mathematicians working on two fundamental arithmetic aspects of the theory, namely p-adic modular forms and p-adic L-functions, and report on the most recent developments and impact that these results have on the above mentioned conjectures. The conference will take place from May 20 to May 24, 2019.

**International Conference Progress on Difference Equations – PODE 2019

Celebrating the 70th Birthday of David Rand, University of Warwick, UK**

The School of Technology and Management of the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, Portugal, has the privilege to organize, under the auspices of the International Society of Difference Equations ISDE, the 12th meeting of the International Workshop “Progress on Difference Equations PODE 2019 Which will be held from 27th to 30th of May, 2019.

This 12th meeting of PODE is dedicated to honour Professor David Rand, University of Warwick, UK, on the occasion of his 70th birthday.

Under the auspices of the International Society of Difference Equations ISDE, PODE 2019 will continue to honour the tradition of the previous meetings, holding a scientific international forum for researchers from around the world.

The aim of PODE 2019 is to present and discuss the latest trends and developments in the fields of Difference Equations, Discrete Dynamical Systems, Functional Equations and their applications.

PODE 2019 would also provide an excellent opportunity for students (PhD and MSc) and other researchers to meet world top researchers in the fields of Difference Equations, Discrete Dynamical Systems, Functional Equations and their applications.

The first workshop PODE took place in Laufen (Germany) PODE 2007, and since then the meeting has been held every year in several cities in Europe and US, namely in Laufen (Germany) PODE 2008, Bedlewo (Poland) PODE 2009, Xanthi (Greece) PODE 2010, Dublin (Ireland) PODE 2011, Richmond (Virginia, USA) PODE 2012, Bialystok (Poland) PODE 2013, Izmir (Turkey) PODE 2014, Covilhã (Portugal) PODE 2015, Riga (Latvia) PODE 2016 and Urbino (Italy) PODE 2017.

After 2017, the workshop PODE alternates each year with the European Conference on Iteration Theory ECIT and therefore is being held every two years.

The Scientific and Organizing Committees are working, diligently, to have a workshop that meets the high scientific standards of its previous predecessors as well as a pleasant and friendly ambience.

We hope to meet you in Bragança in next May.

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: Vladimir Dotsenko

Description

Computing various homological invariants of associative algebras (such as Tor and Ext of various modules, Hochschild (co)homology, cyclic homology etc.) has been an active research topic in ring theory for many years. More recently (about 15 years ago), ring theorists became interested in associative algebras up to homotopy, or A-infinity algebras, as a recipe to produce meaningful "higher structures" on classical objects like Yoneda Ext-algebras.

This offers two different perspectives on associative algebras: homological invariants are "Abelian" (i. e. arise when one works with additive categories, e.g. chain complexes of modules over a ring), while homotopical invariants are "non-Abelian" (i. e. arise from non-additive categories, like the category of all differential graded associative algebras). However, these two perspectives are closely related, and it is often possible to recover homological information from the homotopical one, and the other way round. For experts in homotopical algebra on a larger scale (beyond the associative ring theory), this philosophy is already present in works of Stasheff and Hinich on homotopy algebras.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for experts in related areas to share ideas with each other and with younger researchers, identify new promising connections and explore arising research directions.

Description

Introduced at the end of the 1960s, the Langlands Program, whose inspiration comes from class field theory in the early 20th century, has produced spectacular and numerous results in the last 20 years.

The most efficient techniques include the intensive use of families of p-adic automorphic forms and the study of deformations of Galois representations. They have led to remarkable arithmetic applications such as the proofs of the Artin conjecture for GL(2) and of the Sato-Tate theorem.

On the occasion of the 60th birthday of J. Tilouine, we gather some of the best experts whose research interacts with those of Jacques.

ICERM
Providence, RI; USA

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Andrew V. Sutherland

Description

In this workshop, we will explore a number of themes in the arithmetic of abelian varieties of low dimension (typically dimension 2--4), with a focus on computational aspects. Topics will include the study of torsion points, Galois representations, endomorphism rings, Sato-Tate distributions, Mumford-Tate groups, complex and p-adic analytic aspects, L-functions, rational points, and so on. We also seek to classify and tabulate these objects, in particular to understand explicitly the underlying moduli spaces (with specified polarization, endomorphism, and torsion structure), and to find examples of abelian varieties exhibiting special behavior. Finally, we will pursue connections with related areas, including the theory of modular forms, related algebraic varieties (e.g., K3 surfaces), and special values of L-functions.

Our goal is for the workshop to bring together researchers working on abelian varieties in a number of facets to establish collaborations, develop algorithms, and stimulate further research.

Description

Presentation The CRM and IMUB are pleased to announce the follow-up programme for the IRTATCA: Interactions between Representation Theory, Algebraic Topology and Commutative Algebra intensive research programme that was held in 2015 at the CRM. The program and its follow-up are devoted to promote interactions between researchers from different areas that share a common interest in homological techniques in a broad sense. The original programme gathered around 200 researchers from all over the world, and it is now time to have a look at some of the progress that took place since then.

These two weeks will be structured around one Advanced Course between the 3rd and 7th of June 2019, that will take place at the IMUB and a Conference between the 11th and the 15th of June 2019 that will take place at the CRM.​

Topics The programm is open to all researchers interested in homological algebra and its applications in areas like commutative algebra, representation theory and algebraic topology. This includes but is not restricted to: the study of triangulated categories, derived algebraic geometry, homotopy theory, singularity theory, representation theory, etc.

Description

Our goal is to organize a conference devoted to interactions between pure mathematics, in particular arithmetic and algebraic geometry, and the information theory, especially cryptography and coding theory. This conference will be the seventeenth edition, with the first one held in 1987, that traditionally reunites some of the best specialists in the domains of arithmetic, geometry and information theory. The corresponding international community is very active with all of the concerned domains changing rapidly over time.

The conference is thus an important occasion for young mathematicians (graduate students and post-docs) to interact with established researchers in order to exchange new ideas.

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

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

  • One or two plenary talks per day at the beginning of each session. They will be given by established researchers, some of them new to the established AGC2T community, so that that new emerging topics can be introduced, that may give rise to new applications of arithmetic or algebraic geometry to the information theory.
  • Shorter specialized talks, often delivered by young mathematicians.

As with the previous editions of the AGC2T, we would like to publish the acts of the conference as a special volume of the Contemporary Mathematics collection of the AMS.

Conference Topics

  • Number theory, asymptotic properties of families of global fields, arithmetic statistics, L-functions.
  • Arithmetic geometry, algebraic curves over finite fields or number fields, abelian varieties : point counting, the invariant theory and classification of curves.
  • Coding theory, algebraic-geometric codes constructed from curves and higher dimensional varieties, decoding algorithms. ​ - Cryptography, elliptic curves and abelian varieties : the discrete logarithm problem, pairings, explicit computation of isogenies, multiplication over finite fields, APN functions, bent and hyper-bent funtions.

Description

In recent years, several independent research groups have raised the possibility of a unified approach to the study of Khovanov-Rozansky knot homology, double affine Hecke algebras and elliptic Hall algebras, super Yang-Mills theory, Betti quantum geometric Langlands, and Hilbert schemes, seen through the lens of character varieties and related geometries. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in topological field theory, geometric representation theory, mathematical physics, and algebraic combinatorics to report on recent progress and open questions at the intersection of these fields.

The conference will be preceded by a week-long summer school aimed at graduate and post-doctoral researchers, with the goal to initiate them to the ideas needed to follow the talks the following week. There will be an application process for this, and funding is available to cover the lodging for summer school participants for the duration of both events. We have addtional supplementary NSF funding for the travel costs of US-based summer school participants.

Description

The last 10 years have brought a burst of activity at the intersection of algebraic topology, number theory and algebraic geometry. This has led to a wealth of: New theorems, such as Ellenberg–Venkatesh–Westerland’s breakthrough results on the Cohen–Lenstra heuristics for function fields; New sources of heuristics in topology, such as Vakil–Wood’s predictions from the Grothendieck ring, or the notion and coincidences of homological densities as in Farb– Wolfson–Wood; Refinements of classical enumerative theorems using modern topological tools, such as Kass–Wickelgren’s arithmetic count of the 27 lines on a cubic surface; and A renewed focus on unstable homology, as in Galatius–Kupers–Randal-Williams and Miller–Wilson. We believe that these results are just the beginning of the emerging area of arithmetic topology.

This 5 day workshop will bring together junior and senior researchers from across these areas with the goal of:

Giving participants a global view of a fast emerging and multidisciplinary area,
Giving participants a detailed awareness on the range of methods available, and
Emerging with a robust problem list which can help guide activity in the area for the next 5-10 years.

Description

The AMS’s Mathematics Research Communities (MRC) are a professional development program offering early-career mathematicians a rich array of opportunities to develop collaboration skills, build a network focused in an active research domain, and receive mentoring from leaders in that area. Funded through a generous three-year grant from the National Science Foundation, MRC is a year-long experience that includes:

Intensive one-week, hands-on research conferences in the summer;
Special Sessions at the AMS-MAA Joint Mathematics Meetings in the January following the summer conferences;
Guidance in career building;
Follow-up small-group collaborations;
Longer-term opportunities for collaboration and community building among the participants;

Over time, each participant is expected to provide feedback regarding career development and the impact of the MRC program.

Women, underrepresented minorities, and individuals from various types of institutions across the country are all encouraged to apply.

The focus of this MRC will be on problems in arithmetic geometry over fields of positive characteristic p that are amenable to an explicit approach, including the construction of examples, as well as computational exploration. Compared to algebraic geometry in characteristic 0, studying varieties over fields of characteristic p comes with new challenges (such as the failure of generic smoothness and classical vanishing theorems), but also with additional structure (such as the Frobenius morphism and point-counts over finite fields) that can be exploited. This often leads to interesting arithmetic considerations: possible topics for the workshop include isogeny classes of abelian varieties over finite fields, Galois covers of curves and lifting problems, and arithmetic dynamics.

To reflect the inherent interdisciplinary nature of arithmetic geometry, we invite early-career mathematicians with a wide range of backgrounds in number theory, algebraic geometry, and other subjects that intersect these fruitfully, such as dynamics and commutative algebra. During the workshop, the participants will formulate and investigate open problems around areas of current interest in small collaborative groups. They will benefit from the mentorship of a diverse group of senior arithmetic geometers, and from activities tailored to junior researchers. For instance, there will be two problem brainstorming sessions (at the beginning and the end), expository talks on key techniques (such as recent computational advances), and career-related group discussions.

Description

The study of symmetries, starting with Klein and Hilbert in the late 19th century is of central importance to number theory. One is interested in behaviour of points in a space under its group of "generalized symmetries"; this idea is central to theories such as ergodic theory and dynamical systems that originated with problems in physics, but also to number theory where the symmetries are very much related to Diophantine equations. Mostly this study is done on manifolds in the usual Euclidean space that takes its structure from the usual space in which we live; however, number theory provides us with new exotic spaces and new exotic geometries -- p-adic numbers, p-adic analysis, p-adic manifolds -- that in a certain perspective serve as tools to study local behaviour of complicated global symmetries originating in Euclidean spaces. Our interest is precisely in developing such a theory in the context of very particular spaces and symmetries; to be precise, p-adic Shimura varieties and p-adic Hecke operators.

Microlocal Analysis and Applications

ap.analysis-of-pdes

Fudan University

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Jared Wunsch

Description

Microlocal analysis originated in the 1950s from the use of Fourier transform techniques in the study of variable-coefficient PDEs; its intellectual roots lie in geometric optics and the WKB approximation. The field took on a coherent identity starting in the 1960s with the development of pseudodifferential and, later, Fourier integral operators as fundamental tools. Since then, microlocal analysis has seen a remarkable variety of applications across pure and applied mathematics and physics. Within the last several years, the field has witnessed both striking breakthroughs on known microlocal problems and spectacular new results in areas where microlocal analysis had not previously been viewed as a natural tool. The conference will explore applications in areas as diverse as inverse problems, general relativity, classical dynamics, and quantum chaos, and should be of interest to researchers in many areas of PDE, geometry, and mathematical physics.

The conference will be preceded by a two-day minicourse on June 14-15, aimed at postdocs and advanced graduate students, offering a crash mini-course in the foundations of microlocal analysis, as well as an introduction to its applications in inverse problems, spectral theory, and evolution equations.

his event is funded by the China National Natural Science Foundation and the Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences. Some financial support for lodging will be available for junior participants. Some funding is available from the US NSF for partial support of travel and lodging for junior US participants. Priority for support will be given to graduate students and recent PhDs. Women mathematicians and members of other under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply for support.

p-adic Analysis, Arithmetic and Singularities

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2019-06-24 through 2019-06-28
Santander; Spain

Meeting Type: summer school

Contact: see conference website

Description

The school aims to provide an introduction to a very dynamic area of research that lies at the intersection of number theory, p-adic analysis, algebraic geometry and singularity theory. In this area, the local zeta functions (p-adic, archimedean, motivic, etc) and certain counterparts known as Poincaré series (usual and motivic) associated with filtrations play a central role.

The Local zeta functions were introduced in the 50s by I. M. Gel'fand and G. E. Shilov. The main motivation was that the existence of meromorphic extensions for the Archimedean local zeta functions implies the existence of fundamental solutions for partial differential equations with constant coefficients.

In the 70s, J.-I. Igusa developed a uniform theory for local zeta functions and oscillatory integrals, with a polynomial phase, on fields of characteristic zero. In the p-adic case the local zeta functions are related to the number of solutions of polynomial congruences and to exponential sums mod pm. There are many (very difficult) conjectures that connect the poles of the local zeta functions with the topology of complex singularities.

Recently J. Denef and F. Loeser introduced zeta motivic functions, which constitute a vast extension of the p-adic zeta functions studied by Igusa. Another important object is the Poincaré motivic series recently introduced by A. Campillo, F. Delgado and S. Gusein-Zade, which also have to do with the topology of complex singularities.

It is also important to mention that the local zeta functions are related to Feynman and string amplitudes. There is also a growing interest in the understanding of the mathematical and physical problems that appear in both, classical and p-adic quantum theories. The main purpose of the school is to present these connections and some of the challenges they have opened.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pamela Bye

Description

Flows involving solid particulates are ubiquitous in nature and industry alike. Such flows are found in pharmaceutical production, the chemical industry, the food and agricultural industries, energy production and the environment. Many unsolved problems remain, however. In order to be able to solve problems, granular flows need to be understood so that their behaviour can be controlled and predicted.

We are able to describe rapid granular flows, where the particles are highly agitated and there has been some success describing static systems. The intermediate regime, where these two phases meet and coexist, is not as well understood and yet is the most commonly observed behaviour of granular flow. The objective of this meeting will be to interface the two ends of the particulate flow spectrum – those working to understand the fundamentals of granular flows and those attempting to control particulate flows in an industrial setting - to develop solutions to the complex problems presented by dense granular flows.

Themes will include dense granular flow, biological systems, self-propelled particles and geological flows, exploring new developments in theoretical analysis and experimental techniques.

Description

The fifth European Talbot workshop will take place in Germany July 7 - 13, 2019. The goal is to bring together a group of 30-35 graduate students and post-docs to work on a focused topic, this year algebraic K-theory, under the guidance of two senior mentors.

Most of the talks were given by the participants, with enough free time in the afternoon and evenings for further discussions and interaction. The character of the workshop is expository in nature, starting with the basic ideas and leading to a survey of the most recent developments in the field. Since all participants are staying together at a group house, jointly responsible for cooking and cleaning, we hope to create an informal and inspiring atmosphere.

Description

The summer school will revolve around arithmetic aspects of the theory of differential equations. This topic, which can be traced back at least to Gauss's study of hypergeometric functions, was a major driving force of mathematical research in the 19th century. It witnessed a spectacular revival during the next century thanks to the interaction with several seemingly unrelated areas of mathematics, in particular algebraic geometry (Higgs bundles and Simpson’s conjecture), and number theory (Siegel-Shidlovskii Theorem and transcendence theory).

Meeting Type: collaboration conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

In many Latin American countries, political instability, institutional weakness and a lack of government support for scientific research have hindered the development of mathematics. There have been signs of progress in recent years. In 2014, Brazilian mathematics received international recognition when Artur Avila became the first South American to be awarded a Fields Medal. In 2018, the International Congress of Mathematicians will be hosted in a Latin American country for the first time. Within the last five years, several major conferences, such as the Mathematical Congress of the Americas, the AGRA winter schools, and PRIMA 2017, have been organized with the specific aim of increasing mathematical activity in Latin American countries.

In spite of all of this progress, there is still room for improvement. Number theory research in South and Central America continues to be largely confined to geographically isolated pockets of activity, concentrated within a small number of subfields. Many of the strongest math students go abroad for their training, in some cases because they cannot find viable Ph.D. supervisors in the research areas that they hope to pursue in their home countries. In most areas, Latin American mathematicians continue to be poorly represented at major international conferences. The proposed workshop aims to address some of these issues. Our main objectives are as follows:

Facilitate collaboration between North, Central, and South American number theorists.

The primary aim of the proposed workshop is to promote collaboration between number theorists in North, Central, and South America. To do this, we will model our workshop after several other workshops that have been extremely successful at sparking new collaborations: the American Institute of Mathematics workshops, the AMS Mathematics Research Communities workshops, and the BIRS-sponsored Women In Numbers workshops. Participants will be divided into small project groups led by senior researchers. Most of the time during the workshop will be spent working on research in these project groups. The goal is for researchers to leave the workshop with the beginning of a research paper or, at least, with a list of good candidates for future collaborators and a deeper understanding of a timely subject.

Foster research in timely areas of number theory. All of our confirmed participants have impressive research track records, and several are leading mathematicians by world standards. All of our project groups are on areas central to current research in the field, and all of these areas can also be said to lie in the crossroads between number theory and other fields. In several cases, this requires little explanation: the study of the arithmetic of algebraic varieties lies in the intersection of number theory and algebraic geometry; the study of modular forms, which originated in complex analysis, has been essential to number theorists since Ramanujan. The Langlands program is inherently about building connections, particularly with representation theory.

Continuing with our list of topics: additive combinatorics is a relatively new name for an area that encompasses additive number theory, combinatorial arguments and probabilistic and ergodic ideas. The importance of analytical tools to number theory has been clear since Riemann, and the relevance of harmonic analysis and spectral theory has become clearer and clearer since the mid-20th century. Probabilistic arguments in number theory have been fruitful ever since Erd\H{o}s and Tur\'an. The relevance of ergodic theory and dynamical systems to number theory has been known at least since Furstenberg and Ratner. Geometry and number theory often give two different perspectives on arithmetic groups. In particular, spectral gaps and expanders are terrains where number theory, spectral theory and geometry meet.

Train young researchers. Rather than filling the workshop with invited participants, we will reserve some spaces for young researchers who can apply to work in project groups that match their interests. One of our aims is to provide specialized training for young researchers in Latin American countries and introduce them to interesting problems in areas that may not be well-represented in their home countries. In some cases, this will be their first experience with working on a collaborative project. We will take steps to create a supportive environment so that young researchers will feel encouraged by the experience. We will also hold several panel discussions on topics that will be of particular interest to young researchers (see the Overview for more details).

Provide mentoring opportunities for mathematicians who normally do not get to train young researchers. The project groups are designed to provide a vertical mentoring structure, enabling mathematicians at different stages of their careers to mentor one another. Some of our participants may be faculty members at institutions without Ph.D. programs, and some will come from countries where it is typical for the strongest students to go abroad for graduate school. Such participants will have an exceptional chance to mentor promising young researchers in their project groups.

Attract greater visibility for the work of Latin American number theorists. A growing number of Latin Americans are working in number theory. By assembling this group, we will demonstrate that there is, in fact, already a fair number of strong number theorists connected to Latin American countries. Holding our workshop at the CMO, and advertising it on the BIRS website, will lend them additional prominence.

Build a network of Spanish-speaking mathematicians. This workshop will provide the foundation for creating a global network of Spanish-speaking mathematicians. In particular, we plan to start an online community -- including a mailing-list and possibly a more visible database -- of self-identified Spanish-speaking number theorists from around the world, organized by research area, which we hope will be useful to future conference organizers. The defining criterion will be an ability and willingness to lecture and work in Spanish.

Contact: Mark Andrea de Cataldo, Francois Greer, Christian Schnell

Description

The goal of this summer school is to introduce Ph.D. students and Postdocs to exciting recent developments in the geometry of algebraic groups and in modular representation theory.

The school will consist of two morning lecture series and of afternoon lectures on topics directly related to the morning lecture series.

Michel Brion (Grenoble) will give one lecture series on the “Structure of algebraic groups and geometric applications”. Geordie Williamson (Sydney) will give the other lecture series “On the modular representation theory of algebraic groups.”

M. Brion’s abstract. The course will first give an overview of the “classical” structure theory of algebraic groups and of some related geometric developments and problems; for example, on automorphism groups of projective algebraic varieties. It will then address results and questions on algebraic groups over arbitrary fields, including the structure of pseudo-reductive groups (work of Conrad, Gabber and Prasad), and of pseudo-abelian varieties (Totaro). Five lectures, 75 minutes each.

G. Williamson’s abstract. This course will be about the modular (i.e. characteristic p) representation theory of reductive algebraic groups, like the general linear and symplectic groups. I will begin by reviewing the algebraic theory, where there are beautiful connections to classical Lie theory and finite group theory. I will then pass to the geometric theory (perverse and parity sheaves) which is behind recent breakthroughs in the subject. The theory is rich in mysteries and open conjectures, and I will try to outline potentially interesting research directions. Five lectures, 75 minutes each.

Description

A finite free resolution over a commutative local ring is universal for its set of ranks if every other finite free resolution with the same set of ranks can be obtained from it via base change. The existence is formal, however the question remained whether the universal ring can be taken to be noetherian. Hochster established this in 1975 in the length 2 case. Recent advances have connected this story to Kac-Moody Lie algebras and representation theory and the goal of this workshop is to introduce this research area to graduate students, with special emphasis on the length 3 case. The structure of the universal ring controls the structure of free resolutions of a given rank, and this new link allows one to explore this with the use of representation theory.

We have travel and lodging support for students and young researchers. Please use the registration form if you are interested in attending.

The plan is to have 2 introductory lectures each morning (example topics are linkage, structure theorems for finite free resolutions, basic representation theory), with problem sessions and time to write Macaulay2 code in the afternoons. Prior experience with Macaulay2 will be very helpful and participants will be able to work on computer projects with a research component.

Description

The aim of arithmetic geometry is to solve equations on integers by geometric methods. One of the most prominent achievements of this approach is certainly the Langlands program, which makes a connection between representations of the absolute Galois group of $\mathbb Q$ and certain adelic representations of reductive algebraic groups. In the early 2000's, Christophe Breuil suggested the existence of a purely $p$-adic version of the Langlands correspondence and supported his vision by numerous examples. Almost twenty years after, the $p$-adic Langlands correspondence has become a major topic in number theory.

Besides, following the rapid development of computer science throughout the 20th century, a large panel of algorithmical tools has been deployed and are now quite performant, in particular for attacking questions in Number Theory. A computational approach to the (classical) Langlands correspondence has been already investigated in recent times as well. We believe that the time has come to begin to extend it to the $p$-adic Langlands correspondence.

This conference is a first step towards this perspective. It will bring together the most internationally recognized experts in $p$-adic Langlands correspondence on the one hand and effective aspects of the Langlands correspondence on the other hand. Young researchers, and more generally researchers who are familiar with one side (either the abstract one or the effective one) and are willing to learn the other side, are particularly encouraged to attend our event: a enthousiastic program with 2 mini-courses, a bunch of short lectures and an introduction to the mathematical software SageMath is specially designed for them.

2nd IMA Conference on Inverse Problems from Theory to Application

mp.mathematical-physics
2019-09-04 through 2019-09-06
University College London
London; UK

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pamela Bye

Description

An inverse problem refers to a situation where the quantity of interest cannot be measured directly, but only through an action of a nontrivial operator of which it is a parameter. The corresponding operator, also called forward operator, stems from a physical application modelling. Prominent examples include: Radon and Fourier transforms for X-ray CT and MRI, respectively or partial differential equations e.g. EIT or DOT.

The prevalent characteristics of inverse problems is their ill-posedness i.e. lack of uniqueness and/or stability of the solution. This situation is aggravated by the physical limitations of the measurement acquisition such as noise or incompleteness of the measurements. Inverse problems are ubiquitous in applications from bio-medical, science and engineering to security screening and industrial process monitoring. The challenges span from the analysis to efficient numerical solution. This conference will bring together mathematicians and statisticians, working on theoretical and numerical aspects of inverse problems, as well as engineers, physicists and other scientists, working on challenging inverse problem applications. We welcome industrial representatives, doctoral students, early career and established academics working in this field to attend. Topic list: • Imaging • Inverse problems in partial differential equations (Memorial Lecture for Slava Kurylev) • Model and data driven methods for inverse problems • Optimization and statistical learning • Statistical inverse problems Invited Speakers Julie Delon (MAP5, Paris Descartes University) Markus Haltmeier (University of Innsbruck) Mike Hobson (University of Cambridge) Matti Lassas (University of Helsinki) Gabriel Peyre (DMA, École Normale Supérieure) Michael Unser (EPFL)

Call for Papers Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 100 word abstract for oral or poster presentation. We welcome abstracts to be submitted by 1 June via https://my.ima.org.uk. Please indicate whether your title is intended for oral “presentation” or “poster” presentation. Please send your abstracts in plain text format (no equations).

Description

In this school, we intend to understand connections between the arithmetic theory of modular forms and new developments in p-adic Hodge theory that grew from the breakthrough work of Peter Scholze on perfectoid spaces (see P. Scholze "Perfectoid spaces" Publ. Math. de l’IHES 116 (2012)).

p-adic methods play a key role in the study of arithmetic properties of modular forms. This theme takes its origins in Ramanujan congruences between the Fourier coeffcients of the unique eigenform of weight 12 and the Eisenstein series of the same weight modulo the numerator of the Bernoulli number B12. After the work of Deligne on Ramanujan's conjecture it became clear that congruences between modular forms reflect deep properties of corresponding p-adic representations. The general framework for the study of congruences between modular forms is provided by the theory of p-adic modular forms developed in fundamental papers of Serre, Katz, Hida and Coleman (1970's-1990's).

p-adic Hodge theory was developed in pioneering papers of Fontaine in 80’s as a theory classifying p-adic representations arising from algebraic varieties over local fields. It culminated with the proofs of Fontaine's de Rham, crystalline and semistable conjectures (Faltings, Fontaine-Messing, Kato, Tsuji, Niziol,...). In order to classify all p-adic representations of Galois groups of local fields, Fontaine (1990) initiated the theory of (φ, Г)-modules. This gave an alternative approach to classical constructions of the p-adic Hodge theory (Cherbonnier, Colmez, Berger). The theory of (φ, Г)-modules plays a fundamental role in Colmez's construction of the p-adic local Langlands correspondence for GL2. On the other hand, in their famous paper on L-functions and Tamagawa numbers, Bloch and Kato (1990) discovered a conjectural relation between p-adic Hodge theory and special values of L-functions. Later Kato discovered that p-adic Hodge theory is a bridge relating Beilinson-Kato Euler systems to special values of L-functions of modular forms and u sed it in his work on Iwasawa-Greenberg Main Conjecture. One expects that Kato’s result is a particular case of a very general phenomenon.

The mentioned above work of Scholze represents the main conceptual progress in p-adic Hodge theory after Fontaine and Faltings. Roughly speaking it can be seen as a wide generalization, in the geometrical context, of the relationship between p-adic representations in characteristic 0 and characteristic p provided by the theory of (φ,Г)-modules. As an application of his theory, Scholze proved the monodromy weight conjecture for toric varieties in the mixed characteristic case. On the other hand, in a series of papers, Scholze applied his theory to the study of the cohomology of Shimura varieties. In particular to the construction of mod p Galois representations predicted by the conjectures of Ash (see P. Scholze “On torsion in the cohomology of locally symmetric space" (Ann. Of Math. 182 (2015)). Another striking application of this theory is the geometrization of the local Langlands correspondence in the mixed characteristic case. Here the theory of Fontaine—Fargues plays a fundamental role.

This goal of the proposed summer school is twofold:

  1. Give an advanced introduction to Scholze's theory.
  2. To understand the relation between perfectoid spaces and some aspects of arithmetic of modular (or, more generally, automorphic) forms such as representations mod p, and lifting of modular forms, completed cohomology, local Langlands program and special values of L-functions.

We wish to bring together experts in the area of arithmetic geometry that will felicitate future research in the direction. We strongly encourage participation of young researchers.

Description

Invited Speakers Prof Michael Bruen, University College Dublin, Ireland Prof Guoqing Wang, Nanjing Hydraulic Research Institute, China

As in the recent publication of the IPCC AR5 report, flood risks have been again highlighted as one of the most perceivable indicators when it comes to the understanding of climate change impact. Research on flood risk has never been ampler, yet we still witness the growing causalities of severe flooding around globe on a yearly basis. The stark resemblance of the consequences between the two catastrophic flooding events in both Japan and Indonesia 2018, exposes a bitter reality that there are still knowledge gaps where both the academia and the practitioners need to fill, with no exception for even the developed world.

Continuing from the successful series of previous IMA Conferences on Flood Risk, the IMA is planning its 4th International Conference on this topic in 2019 to bring together engineers, mathematicians and statisticians working in the field. The conference intends to be used as a forum for participants to meet and exchange their views on important technical issues, new and emerging methods and technologies in assessing flood risks in a world that is being altered by the climate change and moving towards an uncertain future. The emphasis will be on new developments in mathematical modelling methods, statistical techniques in assessing flood risks, especially on quantification of flood risks with a nonstationary climate and modelling uncertainty. Methods and application of assimilating new data from cutting-edge new type of observations will be among the topics for discussion.

The conference will be of interest to flood defence practitioners; flood defence managers; statisticians, mathematicians, civil engineers.

Description

The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview of recent developments in theory of p-adic L-functions associated to automorphic representations, covering both the construction of p-adic L-functions, and their relations to Euler systems in Galois cohomology via regulator maps. The workshop will consist of three mini-courses, aimed at younger researchers, and more specialised individual lectures.

There will be three mini-courses, each consisting of four lectures, on the following topics:

Construction of p-adic L-functions for automorphic forms on GL(2n), using the automorphic modular symbols introduced in work of Dimitrov Construction of p-adic L-functions for GSp(4), using Pilloni’s higher Hida theory evalulation of global cohomology classes under the syntomic regulator, using the methods of Darmon—Rotger. The other talks will explore connections of these topics with other related areas of current research, such as Iwasawa theory, the theory of Hecke varieties and the theory of L-invariants.

Description

Modularity. Until relatively recently, the celebrated Taylor--Wiles method for establishing the automorphy of Galois representations carried several significant limitations. First, the method applied only to Galois representations expected to come from cohomological automorphic forms of regular weight. For classical modular forms this excludes the case of weight 1 forms. Second, the locally symmetric space in whose cohomology the automorphic form is expected to arise was required to be an algebraic variety (a Shimura variety). This excludes for instance the case of elliptic curves over imaginary quadratic fields, where the locally symmetric space is 3-dimensional, and so cannot even admit a complex structure. Finally, in the absence of results towards Serre's conjecture on the modularity of mod p Galois representations, the Taylor--Wiles method generally only establishes the potential automorphy of Galois representations, i.e., automorphy after a finite base change.

In a major breakthrough, Calegari--Geraghty have introduced a derived version of the Taylor--Wiles method which has the potential to remove the first two of these restrictions. To realize the potential of the Calegari--Geraghty method requires overcoming a number of significant challenges in the theory of automorphic forms and the arithmetic of Shimura varieties. For instance one needs to know the existence of Galois representations attached to torsion classes in the cohomology of locally symmetric spaces, as well as strong forms of local-global compatibility for those representations. Scholze [SchTorsion] (and independently Boxer [Boxer] in some special cases) has addressed the former, and work of Cariani--Scholze [CS] on the vanishing of torsion in the cohomology of non-compact Shimura varieties has made progress towards the latter. These advances already have remarkable applications, such as the proof of potential modularity of elliptic curves over imaginary quadratic fields, as well as the Sato--Tate conjecture for such curves [tenauthor].

In addition to examining these many important developments, the workshop will contemplate possible future improvements to the Calegari--Geraghty method, such as may come from incorporating the derived deformation theory of Galatius--Venkatesh [GV]. We will also explore the prospects for proving actual (rather than potential) modularity of elliptic curves over some CM fields. Another expected topic is work in progress by Boxer--Calegari--Gee--Pilloni on the potential automorphy of abelian surfaces, using the Calegari--Geraghty method, as well as Pilloni's ``higher Hida theory'' for coherent cohomology of Shimura varieties [Pilloni].

Moduli of Galois representations. In ongoing work, Emerton and Gee are constructing moduli stacks which parameterize p-adic Galois representations arising from p-adic local fields. In the classical deformation theory of Galois representations, one considers formal families of deformations of a fixed mod p Galois representation; in contrast, the Emerton--Gee stacks admit non-constant families of mod p Galois representations, raising the possibility of arguing by interpolating between them. Furthermore, thanks to the global geometry of these spaces one has more algebro-geometric tools at one's disposal to study them.

The Emerton--Gee moduli stacks are built out of moduli spaces of integral p-adic Hodge theory data. Several incarnations of p-adic Hodge theory play a role in constructing and understanding these spaces, including Breuil-Kisin modules, Wach modules, and Tong Liu's (ϕ,Gˆ)-modules. Understanding how these different theories interact should a play an important role in the further development of this field. There remains many open questions about these stacks. What are the components of the special fiber? Are they normal? Cohen--Macaulay? What kind of singularities do they have? What is the structure of the line bundles/coherent sheaves on these spaces? Answers to these questions would have broad implications for modularity and the p-adic Langlands program.

The geometry of the Emerton--Gee stacks is closely linked to the Breuil--M\'ezard conjecture, which first arose in the context of attempt to generalize the Taylor--Wiles method. This conjecture measures the complexity of local Galois deformation rings (i.e., the versal deformation rings at closed points of Emerton--Gee stacks) in terms of the modular representation theory of GLn;\ understanding the geometry of local deformation spaces is essential for proving modularity lifting theorems. The Breuil--M\'ezard conjecture is in turn closely connected to the so-called weight part of Serre's conjecture, which can be viewed as a step towards the conjectural p-adic local Langlands correspondence.

For example, Caraiani--Emerton--Gee--Savitt [CEGS] are able to use known results about the geometric Breuil--M\'ezard conjecture and the weight part of Serre's conjecture for GL2 to analyze the irreducible components of certain Emerton--Gee stacks and relate them to the modular representation theory of GL2. The moduli stack perspective has also already played a role in the proof of the weight part of Serre's conjecture in generic situations in higher dimensions [LLLM1, LLLM2] and in on-going work of Emerton--Gee on the existence of crystalline lifts of mod p representations.

Despite considerable progress (e.g.\ [Herzig, GHS]), there still is no unconditional statement of the weight part of Serre's conjecture beyond the case of GL2. The Emerton-Gee moduli stack may be helpful for understanding this conjecture, as illustrated by the work of [CEGS]. One objective of the workshop will be to formulate an unconditional weight part of Serre's conjecture in terms of the Emerton-Gee stack, and to understand how such a conjecture relates to modular representation theory and to the Breuil-M\'ezard conjecture.

Finally, there are already tantalizing hints, for instance the work of [EGS] proving Breuil's local-global compatibility conjecture for types in the p-adic Langlands program, that the Emerton--Gee moduli stacks will play an important role in future developments on the modularity of Galois representations. However, this avenue is as yet largely unexplored. Another goal of this workshop is to bring together leading experts involved in these two strands of research in order to explore the possible synergies between them.

Local models for Galois deformation spaces. Although the two flavors of moduli spaces (Shimura varieties, Galois deformation spaces) that we have contemplated in this proposal are rather different, Kisin [Kis09a] observed that there is a surprising and fundamental relation between them:\ namely, their singularities are both modeled by relatively simpler moduli spaces called local models of Shimura varieties. These local models have been studied extensively in the context arithmetic of Shimura varieties, so that much is known about their geometry. Kisin's observation led to improved modularity lifting theorems, which in turn played a key role in the eventual proof of Serre's original conjecture for GL2/Q.

Beyond dimension two, in order to study regular weight Galois deformation spaces, there is an additional condition which comes from a subtle analogue of Griffiths transverality in p-adic Hodge theory. In [LLLM1,LLLM2], Le--Le Hung--Levin--Morra give explicit presentations for certain potentially crystalline deformation rings with Hodge--Tate weights (0,1,2) by studying this Griffiths transversality condition, and as an application prove cases of the weight part of Serre's conjecture and other related conjectures in dimension three. In higher dimension, the connection with local models is weaker and does not capture the Griffiths transversality condition. Ongoing work of Le--Le Hung--Levin--Morra constructs local models for Galois deformation spaces in generic situations and will shed light on the structure of generic parts of the Emerton-Gee moduli stack. Further, there are mysterious connections between these local models and objects in geometric representation theory which have not yet been explored.

There are a number of parallels between the mod p and p-adic stories. A striking example of this is Breuil--Hellmann--Schraen's recent proof of a Breuil--M\'ezard type conjecture for locally analytic representations, which furthermore leads to a proof of the locally analytic socle conjecture of Breuil [BHS]. They study the geometry of a p-adic family of Galois representations called the trianguline variety. In another parallel to the mod p picture, they create a link between the geometry of these p-adic families to objects in geometric representation theory.

By sharing these new developments broadly with other experts in the field, the workshop aims to spur further development of connections between moduli of Galois representations and the geometry of (generalized) local models, and of parallels between the p-adic and mod p settings; and to contemplate what the implications might be for the geometry of Emerton--Gee stacks.

Isaac Newton Institute

Description

The programme will focus on the areas of Algebraic K-theory, Algebraic Cycles and Motivic Homotopy Theory. These are fields at the heart of studying algebraic varieties from a cohomological point of view, which have applications to several other fields like Arithmetic Geometry, Hodge theory and Mathematical Physics.

It was in the 1960s that Grothendieck first observed that the various cohomology theories for algebraic varieties shared common properties, which led him to explain the underlying kinship of such cohomology theories in terms of a universal motivic cohomology theory of algebraic varieties. The theory of Algebraic Cycles, Higher Algebraic K-theory, and Motivic Homotopy Theory are modern versions of Grothendieck's legacy. In recent years it has seen some spectacular developments, on which we want to build further.

The programme will also specifically explore the connections between the following areas:

Algebraic K-theory, Motivic Cohomology, and Motivic Homotopy Theory;
Hodge theory, Periods, Regulators, and Arithmetic Geometry;
Mathematical Physics.

For this, we shall bring together mathematicians working on different aspects of this broad area for extended periods of time, promoting exchange of ideas and stimulating further progress.

During the programme there will be four workshops. At the very beginning, there will be a workshop aimed at giving a younger generation of mathematicians an overview of and introduction to this interesting, but broad area. Later there will be a workshop for each of the three areas listed above, aimed at the latest developments and applications of that area.

Description

The study of integer lattices serves as a bridge between number theory and geometry and has for centuries received the attention of illustrious mathematicians including Lagrange, Gauss, Dirichlet, Hermite and Minkowski. In computer science, lattices made a grand appearance in 1982 with the celebrated work of Lenstra, Lenstra and Lovász, who developed the celebrated LLL algorithm to find short vectors in integer lattices. The role of lattices in cryptography has been equally, if not more, revolutionary and dramatic, playing first a destructive role as a potent tool for breaking cryptosystems, and later as a new way to realize powerful and game-changing notions such as fully homomorphic encryption. These exciting developments over the last two decades have taken us on a journey through such diverse areas as quantum computation, learning theory, Fourier analysis and algebraic number theory.

We stand today at a turning point in the study of lattices. The promise of practical lattice-based cryptosystems together with their apparent quantum-resistance is generating a tremendous amount of interest in deploying these schemes at internet scale. However, before lattice cryptography goes live, we need major advances in understanding the hardness of lattice problems that underlie the security of these cryptosystems. Significant, ground-breaking progress on these questions requires a concerted effort by researchers from many different areas: (algebraic) number theory, (quantum) algorithms, optimization, cryptography and coding theory.

The goal of the proposed special semester is to bring together experts in these areas in order to attack some of the main outstanding open questions, and to discover new connections between lattices, computer science, and mathematics. The need to thoroughly understand the computational landscape and cryptographic capabilities of lattice problems is greater now than ever, given the possibility that secure communication on the internet and secure collaboration on the cloud might soon be powered by lattices.

Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Equivariant Stable Homotopy Theory and p-adic Hodge Theory" workshop in Banff from March 1 to March 06, 2020.

Algebraic topology has had a long and fruitful collaboration with algebraic geometry, with each providing techniques and problems to the other. This workshop is aimed at an exciting, evolving incarnation of this story: applications of equivariant stable homotopy to number theory. Recent work on the foundations of equivariant stable homotopy theory (starting with the Hill--Hopkins--Ravenel work on the Kervaire invariant one problem) and Lurie's development of the foundations of ''derived algebraic geometry'' now allows systematic exploration and organization of ''equivariant derived algebraic geometry''. This allows us to do ordinary algebraic geometry in commutative ring spectra.

New foundations in this area have been spectacularly applied to phenomena seen in the trace methods approach to computing algebraic K -theory. For instance, although the theory of equivariant commutative ring spectra was described decades ago, few of the subtleties in the theory were understood or explored. The modern approaches to computing algebraic K-groups step through equivariant commutative ring spectra via the natural S1-action on topological Hochschild homology. Ongoing and transformative work by Bhatt--Morrow-Scholze in p-adic Hodge theory uses cyclotomic spectra and therefore subtle equivariant information. This workshop, at the vanguard of work in this area, seeks to bring together experts in algebraic topology, (derived) algebraic geometry, and number theory to explore these exciting new connections.

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.

Description

Recent trends, such as the NIST initiative to standardize post-quantum cryptography, point to large-scale adoption of lattice-based cryptography in the near future. There has consequently been a great deal of attention devoted to making various aspects of lattice-based cryptography practical.

This workshop will focus on questions related to the transition of lattice-based cryptography from theory to practice including the hardness of lattice problems arising from algebraic number theory, and algorithmic solutions to practical issues such as time and space-efficiency, side-channel resistance, and ease of hardware implementations.

The workshop will bring together theoretical and applied cryptographers and computational number-theorists, and will also encourage interaction amongst different communities within and outside cryptography.

Description

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Advances in Mixed Characteristic Commutative Algebra and Geometric Connections" workshop in Oaxaca, from June 7 to June 12, 2020.

One of the big ideas in modern mathematics is that integers (like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...) in many formal ways behave similarly to polynomial equations (like y = x^2, which defines the parabola). Frequently, and perhaps surprisingly, many questions in mathematics are easier to study for polynomials than for integers. Hence intuition and results for polynomials can tell us about the integers. Commutative algebra lives at the intersection of both perspectives, and one fundamental object of study is polynomials with integer coefficients, this is called the mixed characteristic case. Recently, Yves Andre proved a long standing open conjecture in commutative algebra in this mixed characteristic setting, relying on constructions of Scholze (and then Bhatt gave a simplified proof of the same conjecture).

This workshop aims to foster and discuss these and other recent tools, to study some remaining open problems in mixed characteristic. The workshop will bring together a diverse group of researchers from different fields, such as commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

Combinatorial anabelian geometry concerns the reconstruction of scheme- or ring-theoretic objects from more primitive combinatorial constituent data. In this sense, it is closely philosophically related to inter-universal Teichmüller theory.

The purpose of the present workshop is to expose fundamental, introductory aspects of combinatorial anabelian geometry, as well as more recent developments related to the Grothendieck-Teichmüller group and the absolute Galois groups of number fields and mixed-characteristic local fields.

The workshop will also treat results concerning the "resolution of nonsingularities" of hyperbolic curves over mixed-characteristic local fields, such results are closely related to combinatorial anabelian geometry over mixed-characteristic local fields.

Description

This program is focused on the two-way interaction of logical ideas and techniques, such as definability from model theory and decidability from computability theory, with fundamental problems in number theory. These include analogues of Hilbert's tenth problem, isolating properties of fields of algebraic numbers which relate to undecidability, decision problems around linear recurrence and algebraic differential equations, the relation of transcendence results and conjectures to decidability and decision problems, and some problems in anabelian geometry and field arithmetic. We are interested in this specific interface across a range of problems and so intend to build a semester which is both more topically focused and more mathematically broad than a typical MSRI program.

Description

The aim of the workshop is to discover how the problems in number theory and algebraic geometry arising from the Hilbert’s tenth problem for rationals interact with the ideas and techniques in mathematical logic, such as definability from model theory and decidability and degree-theoretic complexity from computability theory. This interaction includes various analogues of Hilbert’s tenth problem and related questions, focusing on the connections of algebraic, number-theoretic, model-theoretic, and computability-theoretic properties of structures and objects in algebraic number theory, anabelian geometry, field arithmetic, and differential algebra.

Invitation to inter-universal Teichmüller Theory

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

This workshop will be directed primarily toward beginning learners of inter-universal Teichmüller theory, who are, nonetheless, familiar with basic aspects of arithmetic geometry. The purpose of the workshop is to further dissemination activities concerning inter-universal Teichmüller theory by concentrating on the exposition of the fundamental ideas underlying theory, as well as of certain basic technical results and notions that are used in the theory.

The approach to exposing such fundamental ideas will differ substantially from that of previous workshops on inter-universal Teichmüller theory in that it will focus on discussing various fundamental issues, as well as misunderstandings and questions, that arise in the course of studying the theory. Such discussions will build on the extensive experiences and know-how, with regard to exposing the theory, of researchers who have already acquired a thorough understanding of the theory.

Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Arithmetic Aspects of Algebraic Groups" workshop in Banff from September 6 to September 11, 2020.

The investigation of arithmetic groups has been an active and important area of mathematical research ever since it arose in the work of Gauss, Klein, Poincare, and other famous mathematicians of the 18th and 19th centuries. New points of view have recently led to progress on classical problems, opened new directions of inquiry, and revealed unexpected connections with other areas of mathematics. The workshop will bring together experts in the area, researchers in related fields, and young mathematicians who wish to learn about the most recent advances and the most promising directions for the future of the field.

Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "WIN5: Women in Numbers 5" workshop in Banff from November 15 to November 20, 2020.

Despite recent progress in gender equality in STEM fields, women continue to be underrepresented in the research landscape of many areas of mathematics, including number theory. The Women in Numbers (WIN) network was created in 2008 for the purpose of increasing the number of active female researchers in number theory. For this purpose, WIN sponsors regular conferences, taking place approximately every three years, where female scholars gather to collaborate on cutting-edge research in the field and produce publishable scientific results. The WIN workshops provide an ongoing forum for involving each new generation of junior faculty and graduate students in state-of-the-art research in number theory. They have to come be highly regarded among the broader number theory community due to the quality of research produced by these collaborations.

WIN5 is the fifth in this series of events, bringing together female number theorists at various career stages for research collaboration and mentorship. As always, the scientific program will centre on onsite collaboration on open research problems in number theory, conducted in small groups comprised of senior and junior scholars as well as graduate students. Groups will publish their initial finding in a peer-reviewed conference proceedings volume, and research partnerships formed at the WIN5 workshop are expected to last well beyond the duration of the event. WIN projects have the potential to grow into fruitful long-term research alliances that have a transforming influence on participants' careers and a significant positive impact on the research landscape in number theory. Past WIN workshop project groups have matured into highly effective research teams producing ongoing scholarly work of exceptional scientific quality.

Description

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Langlands Program: Number Theory and Representation Theory" workshop in Oaxaca, from November 29 to December 04, 2020.

Langlands functoriality conjectures predict a vast generalization of the classical reciprocity laws of Class Field Theory, providing crossroads between Number Theory and Representation Theory. The conjectures are both local and global and pertain a connected reductive group and its Langlands dual group.

We aim to introduce young mathematicians in M\'exico and Latin-America to topics of current research in the Langlands Program. We will also promote the participation women and of graduate students from a diverse background in a workshop where experts in the field from across the world will gather to expand upon the frontiers of current research. In addition to research talks, there will be three courses that will also be accessible to mathematicians working in closely related fields.
