UMI-SIMAI-PTM Mathematical Meeting is a joint initiative of the Polish Mathematical Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Matematyczne), the Italian Mathematical Union (Unione Matematica Italiana) and the Italian Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (Società Italiana de Matematica Applicata e Industriale).

The meeting aims at continuation of the tradition of bilateral meetings held in the last years by the Polish Mathematical Society together with other national societies. Mathematicians from other countries are also cordially invited to participate. The meeting will be hosted by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Wrocław and the Faculty of Mathematics of Wrocław University of Science and Technology. Its program will cover topics pertaining to mathematical research conducted in Italy and Poland with a special focus on the applications. It will start on Monday morning September 17, 2018 and end its Scientific Program in the afternoon on Thursday, September 20, 2018. Thursday night and two following days (Friday and Saturday) may be devoted to social activities up to a personal choice (excursions, sightseeing, town's cultural events, shopping), as well as for individually organized scientific activities.

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Daniel Tubbenhauer


The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers as well as students interested - in a broad sense - in any of the two topics. Mathematically speaking, the main goal of the conference is a better understanding of the interplay between low-dimensional topology and (higher) representation theory with its corresponding applications in link homologies and categorification. Another main goal is to get young researcher in these flourishing and rapidly growing fields together helping them to develop new projects and ideas in an inspiring, international atmosphere.

Combinatorial Categories in Algebra and Topology

ac.commutative-algebra at.algebraic-topology co.combinatorics
2018-11-22 through 2018-11-24
Osnabrueck University, Institute of Mathematics
Osnabrueck; Germany

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: Tim Roemer, Oliver Roendigs, Markus Spitzweck


This workshop concerns prominent indexing categories with applications to interesting problems in commutative algebra and algebraic topology. The prime example sparking our interest is the work of Snowden, Church, Ellenberg and others on GL-structures and FI-modules, which involves variations on categories of finite sets and injections. These occur prominently in algebraic topology whenever algebraic structures up to homotopy have to be encoded. Our aim is to bring researchers with different backgrounds but a common interest in special indexing categories together and catalyze a fruitful exchange. Invited speakers include:

  • Rob H. Eggermont (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands)
  • Moritz Groth (University of Bonn, Germany)
  • Javier J. Gutiérrez (Universidad de Cantabria, Spain)
  • Henning Krause (University of Bielefeld, Germany)
  • Liping Li (Hunan Normal University, China)
  • Ieke Moerdijk (University of Utrecht, The Netherlands)
  • Uwe Nagel (University of Kentucky, USA)
  • Dang Hop Nguyen (Hanoi Institute of Mathematics, Vietnam)

The last four decades have revealed many deep connections between topological quantum field theory (TQFT), low-dimensional topology, and geometric structures on manifolds, particularly hyperbolic geometry. This conference will further explore and strengthen these connections by bringing together a distinguished international group of researchers working in or at the interface of these subjects.

Categorification in quantum topology and beyond

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Paul Wedrich


Categorification is a flexible and powerful set of techniques and ideas, which produces insight about mathematical structures by viewing them as shadows of objects in a richer world, often described in terms of higher categories. Two important and interrelated categorification programmes, which are the basis for this workshop, concern the concepts of quantum link homologies and higher representation theory. Both have their origin in mathematics, but have since developed into some of the most fruitful grounds for collaboration between pure mathematics and theoretical physics.

The first week of this workshop will make the recent rapid developments in the areas of quantum link homologies and higher representation theory accessible to non-experts and intensify communication between specialists in these and related areas like gauge theory, TQFT, quantum Teichmüller theory, and string theory. The second week will be used to host a research conference with thematic emphasis on categorification of skein theory and 3-manifold invariants.

Contact: see conference website


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.

Braids, Resolvent Degree and Hilbert’s 13th Problem

Los Angeles, CA; USA

HIL2019 web imageThe purpose of this workshop is to bring focused attention to Hilbert’s 13th problem, and to the broader notion of resolvent degree. While Abel’s 1824 theorem–that the general degree n polynomial is only solvable in radicals for n<4

is well known, less well known is Bring’s 1786 proof that a general quintic is solvable in algebraic functions of only one variable. Hilbert conjectured that for a general sextic, one needs algebraic functions of two variables, and that for a general degree 7 polynomial, one needs algebraic functions of three variables. More generally, it is natural to expect that as n → ∞ , so does the minimal number of variables needed to solve the general degree n polynomial. In a celebrated theorem, Arnol’d and Kolmogorov proved that, at the level of continuous functions, there is no local obstruction to reducing the number of variables to one. Thus, a resolution of Hilbert’s problem must lie deeper. Resolvent degree was introduced by Brauer in order to provide a rigorous statement of these conjectures. While no progress has yet been made on these conjectures, the study of resolvent degree is receiving renewed attention and an influx of ideas from related fields, including:

the theory of essential dimension
uniformization of moduli spaces
braid monodromy
p-adic Hodge theory

This workshop will bring together young and established researchers who work in these fields to explore topics related to Hilbert’s conjectures, to facilitate interaction between subdisciplines, and to lay the groundwork for future progress. The workshop will be organized around mini-courses by experts which will be aimed at 1) conveying the methods that can be brought to bear from each area, and 2) formulating problems concerning resolvent degree that seem particularly tractable using these methods.
