Rational Points 2022

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2022-03-27 through 2022-04-02
Frankenakademie Schloss Schney
Schney/Lichtenfels, Bavaria; Germany

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.

Periods, motives and differential equations: between arithmetic and geometry, on the occasion of Yves André's 60th++ birthday

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2022-04-11 through 2022-04-15
IHP
Paris; France

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

Periods occur in various branches of mathematics and as the title of our conference indicates, their study intertwines arithmetic, Diophantine analysis, differential equations, and algebraic geometry. Many interesting results have been proved in recent years and many challenging problems on periods are still open. The aim of our conference is to bring together specialists who cover all these different points of view and their ramifications, with special attention towards possible applications to broader areas of the techniques developed in the study of periods and their realizations.

Yves André has contributed in many ways to this ongoing adventure and this conference will not only be the opportunity to listen to a broad range of recent developments in mathematics around the topic of periods, but also to celebrate his 60th birthday.

Rational points on higher-dimensional varieties

ag.algebraic-geometry nt.number-theory
2022-04-25 through 2022-04-29
ICMS
Edinburgh; UK

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Daniel Loughran, Rachel Newton, Efthymios Sofos

Description

The meeting will not be online.

Speakers include: Francesca Balestrieri, Jen Berg, Tim Browning, Yang Cao, Jean-Louis Colliot-Thélène, Jordan Ellenberg, Roger Heath-Brown, Marta Pieropan, Bjorn Poonen, Damaris Schindler, Alexei Skorobogatov, Olivier Wittenberg.

Details: The topic of rational points on varieties over the rational numbers is the modern perspective on the theory of Diophantine equations.

There is a good (partially conjectural) understanding now of the situation for algebraic curves. The proof of the Mordell conjecture for curves of genus at least 2 by Faltings is one of the crowning achievements in the area, and much of the work on elliptic curves is driven by the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. Recent highlights include the work of Bhargava and his collaborators on average ranks of elliptic curves. The situation in higher dimensions is much murkier however.

The aim of the meeting is to bring together leading experts and early career researchers to make progress on understanding rational points on surfaces and higher dimensional varieties. Traditionally there have been two separate communities working in the area, using tools from analytic number theory and algebraic geometry, respectively. Spectacular progress has been made in recent times by managing to bridge these communities, with a particular highlight being applications of Green-Tao-Ziegler's work on primes in arithmetic progressions to the fibration method. The emphasis in the meeting will be on building upon this bridge and further inspiring collaboration between the analytic and geometric communities.

Specific topics to be covered will include the following:

Schinzel's Hypothesis with probability Campana points. Purity of strong approximation. Rational points in families. Brauer--Manin obstruction.

Description

3 – 5 May 2022 International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh

https://ima.org.uk/18111/3rd-ima-conference-on-inverse-problems-from-theory-to-application/

CALL FOR PAPERS

Inverse problems are widespread in many varied fields such as medical and satellite imaging, biology, astronomy, geophysics, environmental sciences, computer vision, energy, finance, and defence. These problems are inverse in the sense that they arise from seeking to use a mathematical or physical model “backwards” to indirectly determine a quantity of interest from the effect that this quantity causes on some observed data.

A main challenge resulting from using models “backwards” to measure causes from their effects is that solutions are often not well posed, i.e., not unique and/or unstable with respect to small perturbations in the data. This difficulty has stimulated an important amount of research and innovation at the interface of applied mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, and other fields, leading to great social and economic benefit through impact on science, medicine, and engineering.

The aim of this conference is to bring together the applied mathematics, statistics, machine learning, engineering, physics and industrial communities around the topic of inverse problems to discuss recent developments and open challenges in theory, methodology, computational algorithms, and applications. We welcome industrial representatives, doctoral students, early career and established academics working in this field to attend. Topics of interest include, for example, • Inverse problems in mathematical and computational imaging. • Inverse problems in science, medicine, engineering, and other fields. • Model‐based and data‐driven methods for solving inverse • Optimisation, statistical, and machine learning methods for solving inverse problems. • Mathematical theory for inverse problems. • Deterministic and stochastic computational methods and algorithms.

Call for Papers instructions: 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 7th January 2022 via https://my.ima.org.uk./. Please indicate whether your title is intended for oral “presentation” or “poster” presentation.

Description

Signal processing and machine learning constitutes an important area for the application of mathematical concepts and techniques, in an era where learning algorithms must be transparent, robust, explainable and understandable, and ethical. It is a thriving area, as demonstrated by the success of the UK hosting the recent International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) in Brighton in 2019.

Signal and information processing is at the heart of our technological world, fuelled by developments in, for example, mobile communications, networks and graphs, multimedia systems, medical image analysis, genomics and bioengineering, neural signal processing, big data processing and internet of things. The aim of the conference is to bring together mathematicians, statisticians and engineers with a view to exploring recent developments in mathematics for signal processing and machine learning and identifying fruitful avenues for further research. It is hoped that the meeting will help to attract more mathematicians into this important and challenging field. The conference will follow the same successful format as our previous conferences, comprising tutorials, keynote addresses and non-overlapping technical sessions consisting of oral and poster presentations. A social programme will be organised and will include a reception to welcome delegates.

Meeting Type: twinned conference (see description)

Contact: Aaron Mazel-Gee

Description

The field of homotopy theory originated in the study of topological spaces up to deformation, but has since been applied effectively in several other disciplines. Indeed, homotopical ideas lead to the resolution of several long-standing open conjectures, for instance on smooth structures on spheres, the moduli of curves, and the cohomology of fields. More recently, Bhatt, Morrow, and Scholze used homotopical methods to compare different cohomology theories for algebraic varieties, thereby resolving open questions in arithmetic geometry. In a similarly arithmetic vein, Galatius and Venkatesh initiated the study of Galois representations with homotopical means, whereas Clausen and Scholze revisited the foundations of analytic topology. These and other recent developments in the interface of arithmetic and topology opened up new lines of attack towards classical open questions, which sparked a wide range of current research activities. This conference intends to survey some of the most spectacular recent advances in the fields, thereby paving the way to new developments and future interactions. Our goal is to foster scientific exchange and collaboration between established researchers, emerging leaders, early career mathematicians, and graduate students.

This will be a split transatlantic conference taking place at the Fields Institute in Canada and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Germany, with videoconferencing connections in place to help collaboration.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pam Bye

Description

The success of modern codes for large-scale optimization is heavily dependent on the use of effective tools of numerical linear algebra. On the other hand, many problems in numerical linear algebra lead to linear, nonlinear or semidefinite optimization problems. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from both communities and to find and communicate points and topics of common interest.

Description

The IMA is pleased to announce the Seventh Biennial IMA Conference on Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimization. The success of modern codes for large-scale optimization is heavily dependent on the use of effective tools of numerical linear algebra. On the other hand, many problems in numerical linear algebra lead to linear, nonlinear or semidefinite optimization problems. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from both communities and to find and communicate points and topics of common interest. This Conference has been organised in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Conference topics include any subject that could be of interest to both communities, such as: • Direct and iterative methods for large sparse linear systems. • Eigenvalue computation and optimization. • Large-scale nonlinear and semidefinite programming. • Effect of round-off errors, stopping criteria, embedded iterative procedures. • Optimization issues for matrix polynomials • Fast matrix computations. • Compressed/sparse sensing • PDE-constrained optimization • Distributed computing and optimization • Applications and real time optimization Invited Speakers: Invited Speakers to be confirmed shortly.

Description

Spec(Q¯¯¯¯) is the first conference to celebrate and promote research advances of LGBT2Q mathematicians specialising in algebraic geometry, arithmetic geometry, commutative algebra, and number theory. This conference capitalises on recent thematic program successes in algebraic geometry at Fields, the Thematic Program on Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry (July 1 - December 31, 2016) and the Thematic Program on Homological Algebra of Mirror Symmetry (July 1 - December 31, 2019). Spec(Q¯¯¯¯) will create an empowering and engaging environment which provides LGBT2Q visibility in algebraic geometry, will support junior LGBT2Q academics, and will crystallise new collaborative networks for participants. Algebraic geometry, classically, is the study of the geometry of solutions of polynomial equations; through modern advances it has become an intersectional mathematical field, drawing from various aspects of algebra, number theory, geometry, combinatorics and even mathematical physics. This conference aims to highlight strong mathematical research in a wide array of algebraic geometry, broadly defined. The conference will feature some plenary talks by world-leading researchers from a range of areas of algebraic geometry. To facilitate new connections across the various threads of algebraic geometry, plenary talks at Spec(Q¯¯¯¯) will be aimed a general algebro-geometric audience.

This activity will bring together mathematicians spanning all academic ranks to create ideal networking and mentorship for LGBT2Q academics while disseminating key achievements of trans and queer algebraic geometers. Queer and trans academics often have a diffcult experience developing key collaborations and networks of trusted colleagues. Each research connection, grant, and application involves a conscious decision of how much of one’s queer/trans identity to disclose. This conference provides a safe space to develop ones network while removing these barriers. In such spaces, one can discuss mathematics with new colleagues while unbridled with many societal challenges that they face in mathematical communities. When a mathematician feels free to be themselves in all ways, they are able to immerse themselves in creative mathematical thought.

Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory

Meeting Type: summer school

Contact: Agnes Beaudry, Kate Ponto, Dylan Wilson

Description

Description The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.

Description

new description:

It has been almost 45 years since the influential summer school held in Corvallis, Oregon in 1977 brought together the leading experts of the Langlands program and defined the research agenda in this area for subsequent decades, at the same time inspiring and enabling several generations of young researchers to join in this exciting journey. This 3-week IHES summer school aims to do the same for the next phase of development in the Langlands program.

Recent decades have brought tremendous progress on the project of endoscopy, the extension of the Langlands program to the “relative” setting of spherical varieties and other related spaces, numerous successful “explicit” methods (such as the theta correspondence) to construct functoriality, novel ideas “beyond endoscopy”, and arithmetic applications of both the theta correspondence and the relative trace formula to the study of special cycles and their generating series. Ideas from the geometric Langlands program have begun impacting and enriching the classical Langlands program in significant ways. In particular, the idea that the “space of Langlands parameters” is not just a set, but a (putative) geometric space, can be used to organize a lot of developments around reciprocity, including the Taylor–Wiles method, derived structures, the Langlands correspondence over function fields, and the geometrization of the local Langlands conjecture.

The summer school will attempt to bring these exciting new directions together and explore their interactions.

Description

CALL FOR PAPERS The study of the relationship between music and mathematics has a thousand-year-long history which predates Pythagoras. Mathematics and music share a common basis of language and creativity. From the theory of tuning systems and temperament to physical acoustics, from harmonic analysis to spectrograms, from the structures of rhythms and pulses to the continuous stretching of the laws of harmony and the exploration of the musical forms carried out by contemporary composers, all elements of music lead to an immediate connection to mathematics. Established and recent research has witnessed the use of set theory to describe how musical objects are related and organised, the use of group theory in the context of transformational analysis of tonal and atonal compositions, the application of Grassmannians to the study of temperaments, and the investigation of category theory, topology and differential geometry to provide a basis of music theory. The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications is glad to announce the launch of the first IMA conference on "Mathematics in Music", to take place on 13-15 July 2022 at the Royal College of Music, London. The conference focusses onto the exploration of the connections between mathematics and music, in particular current developments of music theory, music performance, music perception and music technology based on or inspired by mathematical applications and concepts, including (but not limited to) category theory, group theory, topology, differential geometry, combinatorics, analysis, acoustic theory, as well as artificial intelligence, deep learning, language processing and coding. The conference is aimed at mathematical researchers working at the frontier between mathematics or computation with music theory, musicology, music performance, sound engineering and composition, as well as at musicologists or computational musicologists, performers and composers using quantitative tools and formal methods from mathematics in their investigation and professional practice of music. Invited Speakers: Prof Emily Howard, Royal Northern College of Music Prof Guerino Mazzola, University of Minnesota Prof Geraint Wiggins, Vrije Universiteit Brussel & Queen Mary University of London Moreno Andreatta, CNRS Director of Research at IRMA Call for Abstracts: Abstract Submission of 300 words by the 31 March 2022. via https://my.ima.org.uk.

Meeting Type: conference

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.

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.

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".

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.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

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 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.

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.
