Description

The 4th IMA Conference on The Mathematical Challenges of Big Data is issuing a Call for Papers for both contributed talks and posters. Mathematical foundations of data science and its ongoing challenges are rapidly growing fields, encompassing areas such as: network science, machine learning, modelling, information theory, deep and reinforcement learning, applied probability and random matrix theory. Applying deeper mathematics to data is changing the way we understand the environment, health, technology, quantitative humanities, the natural sciences, and beyond ‐ with increasing roles in society and industry. This conference brings together researchers and practitioners to highlight key developments in the state‐of‐the art and find common ground where theory and practice meet, to shape future directions and maximize impact. We particularly welcome talks aimed to inform on recent developments in theory or methodology that may have applied consequences, as well as reports of diverse applications that have led to interesting successes or uncovered new challenges.

Meeting Type: undergraduate school

Description

The Preliminary Arizona Winter School (PAWS) is a virtual program on topics related to the upcoming AWS, with an intended audience of advanced undergraduate students and junior graduate students.

PAWS 2022 will consist of two concurrent six-week lecture series.

  • Ronnie Nagloo: Introduction to model theory with applications

    Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic dealing with abstract structures, historically with connections to other areas of mathematics. The developments, over the past several decades, have allowed for a strengthening of those connections as well as new striking applications to areas such as diophantine and analytic geometry, algebraic differential equations, and combinatorics. This course will serve as an introduction to the basics of model theory, with a view towards some of the above applications.

  • Padmavathi Srinivasan: Heights in Diophantine geometry

    The height of a rational number is a measure of its arithmetic complexity. For example, although the numbers 5 and 500000/100001 are close, the second is arithmetically more complex, and has a much larger height. The height of a rational number is easy to define -- it is simply the maximum of the absolute value of the numerator and the denominator when the number is expressed in lowest form. It is not immediately clear how one can extend this definition to more general algebraic numbers such as the squareroot of 2. In this series of lectures, we will develop the theory of heights of algebraic numbers, and present "Weil's height machine" for defining heights more generally for solutions to systems of polynomial equations in algebraic numbers (i.e., heights of algebraic points on varieties).

    Height functions are a key tool in proving many important finiteness theorems in Diophantine Geometry. The main property of height functions is that there are only finitely many points of bounded height and degree on any given variety. Understanding how quickly the number of points grow as the height grows for various classes of varieties is an active area of research in number theory today! As an application of the theory of heights, we will prove the Mordell--Weil theorem for elliptic curves, namely that the set of rational solutions to cubic equations such as y^2 = x^3 - 2x + 2 is finitely generated.

Registration: You can apply for the program here. The deadline to apply is July 15th, 2022.

Each lecturer will be accompanied by graduate student assistants, who will be in charge of writing weekly problem sets and facilitating weekly, hour-long problem solving and discussion meetings with groups of students. Recommended background for the program is a first course in abstract algebra.

The school will feature an online (Zulip) discussion board where students can ask questions and interact with the speakers and assistants outside of scheduled meeting times.

We will facilitate additional virtual events, some purely social to build a community, and some more structured sessions on timely and pertinent topics like "What is graduate school in Math like?", "Tips for applying to graduate school this Fall," "How do I navigate the first year of graduate school?" "How do I look for an thesis advisor?", "How to get the most out of the upcoming AWS."

We encourage undergraduate students to take their PAWS course as an independent study with a faculty member at their home institution.

  • Organizers: Renee Bell, Isabel Vogt, Hang Xue, with Alina Bucur, Brandon Levin, Anthony Várilly-Alvarado, and David Zureick-Brown.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

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

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

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

Description

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

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

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

Meeting Type: thematic month

Contact: see conference website

Description

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

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

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".

Meeting Type: graduate spring school

Description

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

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

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

Beyond the case of the multiplicative group studied by Lenstra and others, there are now also interesting results for elliptic radicals, and for division points in more general abelian varieties. ln this context, the elliptic analogue of Artin's conjecture is the Lang-Trotter conjecture, which is still open after more than 40 years.

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

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

Description

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

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

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

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

Description

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

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

Meeting Type: conference

Description

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

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

Description

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

Frankenakademie Schloss Schney

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: Michael Stoll

Description

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

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

Description

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

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