Locally Symmetric Spaces: Analytical and Topological Aspects

ag.algebraic-geometry gt.geometric-topology nt.number-theory rt.representation-theory
2017-09-01 through 2018-04-30
Institute for Advanced Study
Princeton, NJ; USA

Meeting Type: long-term research program

Contact: see conference website

Description

During the 2017-18 academic year, the School will have a special program on Locally Symmetric Spaces: Analytical and Topological Aspects. Akshay Venkatesh of Stanford University will be the Distinguished Visiting Professor.

The topology of locally symmetric spaces interacts richly with number theory via the theory of automorphic forms (Langlands program). Many new phenomena seem to appear in the non-Hermitian case (e.g., torsion cohomology classes, relations with mixed motives and algebraic K-theory, derived nature of deformation rings). One focus of the program will be to try to better understand some of these phenomena.

Much of our understanding of this topology comes through analysis ("Hodge theory"). Indeed harmonic analysis on locally symmetric spaces plays a foundational role in the theory of automorphic forms and is of increasing importance in analytic number theory. A great success of such harmonic analysis is the Arthur-Selberg trace formula; on the other hand, the analytic aspects of the trace formula are not fully developed, and variants such as the relative trace formula are not as well understood. Thus analysis on such spaces, interpreted broadly, will be another focus of the program.

Meeting Type: learning workshop

Contact: see conference website

Description

The Arbeitsgemeinschaft (study group) mainly addresses to non-specialists who want to broaden their outlook on mathematics and to young mathematicians who wish to enter a field for future research. Experts are also welcome. The idea is “learning by doing” – similar to the Seminaire Bourbaki. Participants have to volunteer for one of the lectures described in the program of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft. After the deadline for application the organizers choose the actual speakers to give them enough time to understand the subject and to prepare for their lectures. Please see our website www.mfo.de for further details.

Homotopy Theory and Arithmetic Geometry: Motivic and Diophantine Aspects

nt.number-theory at.algebraic-topology ag.algebraic-geometry
2018-07-09 through 2018-07-13
Imperial College, London
London; UK

Meeting Type: summer school

Contact: see conference website

Description

The focus of this research school is on three major advances that have emerged lately in the interface between homotopy theory and arithemic: cohomological methods in intersection theory, with emphasis on motivic sheaves; homotopical obstruction theory for rational points and zero cycles; and arithmetic curve counts using motivic homotopy theory. The emergence of homotopical methods in arithmetic represents one of the most important and exciting trends in number theory, and the lectures will give a gentle introduction to this highly technical area.

The three main lecture course topics are:

Cohomological methods in intersection theory Lecturer: Denis-Charles Cisinski (Regensburg) Assistant: Chris Lazda (Amsterdam)

Homotopical manifestations of rational points and algebraic cycles Lecturer: Tomer Schlank (HUJ) Assistant: Ambrus Pal (Imperial)

Arithmetic enrichments of curve counts Lecturer: Kirsten Wickelgren (Georgia Tech) Assistant: Frank Neumann (Leicester)

The lecture courses will be supplemented by tutorial sessions and guest lectures by Paul Arne Østvær (Oslo), Jon Pridham (Edinburgh) and Vesna Stojanovska (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Meeting Type: research program

Contact: see conference website

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.
