Arithmetic Groups and 3-Manifolds

gr.group-theory gt.geometric-topology kt.k-theory-and-homology nt.number-theory
2022-05-16 through 2022-05-20
Max Planck Institute for Mathematics
Bonn; Germany

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: MPIM

Description

Arithmetic groups provide a fruitful link between various areas, such as geometry, topology, representation theory and number theory. Methods from geometry and topology hinge on the fact that arithmetic groups are lattices in Lie groups, whereas the theory of automorphic forms establishes a connection to representation theory and number theory. This interplay is especially intriguing in the setting of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. Indeed many conjectures in 3-manifold theory tend to be much more accessible for hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose fundamental groups are arithmetic, and conversely such manifolds provide the simplest set-up in which some of the most exciting new phenomena in the Langlands program can be studied. This conference will bring together researchers with various backgrounds around links between number theory and 3-manifolds. Central topics of the conference are the cohomology of arithmetic groups, the relation between torsion and L²-torsion, profinite invariants of 3-manifolds, and number theoretic ramifications.

Limited funding to cover travel cost and accommodation is available for early carreer participants.

The conference is planned as a hybrid event. However, due to the still unpredictable situation regarding Covid, we reserve the right to change it to be held completely virtually. We will inform you when a final decision has been made.

Topological Data Visualization Workshop

at.algebraic-topology gt.geometric-topology
2022-05-16 through 2022-05-20
University of Iowa
Iowa City, IA; USA

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Isabel Darcy, Bei Wang

Description

Some datasets are too small for standard statistical/data analysis to accurately characterize the data. Others are extremely large and data size reduction methods may be needed. One solution is to use topological data analysis to simplify and/or visualize data. This workshop will include both tutorials and research talks on topological techniques for visualizing data.

In person workshop with hybrid component for those who wish to join virtually.

12th IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Signal Processing

ag.algebraic-geometry at.algebraic-topology gm.general-mathematics gt.geometric-topology
2022-05-18 through 2022-05-20
Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
Birmingham; UK

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pamela By

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.

Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)
Minneapolis, Minnesota; USA

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Christine Berkesch, Michelle Manes, Priyam Patel, Candice Price, Adriana Salerno, Bianca Viray

Description

This week-long workshop is designed to support women, particularly women of color, who have completed 1–3 years of graduate school and are considering research in algebra, combinatorics, geometry, topology, or number theory.

The transition to independent learning and research is a crucial and often jarring point in every graduate student's career. This transition is even more difficult for students from marginalized groups, who often have smaller support systems and may face an actively unsupportive environment at their institution. The goal of this workshop is to support, mentor, and guide students at this crucial stage in their career.

This workshop is open to anyone who identifies as a woman, nonbinary, and/or gender fluid and who has also completed 1-3 years of graduate education in mathematics. The program is tailored to support women of color, and our strategies reflect this priority.

2022 TALBOT WORKSHOP: SCISSORS CONGRUENCE AND ALGEBRAIC K-THEORY

Mentored by Inna Zakharevich and Jonathan Campbell

June 12 - 18, 2022

New York (to be confirmed)

What: The Talbot Workshop is a one week learning workshop for roughly 35 graduate students and a few postdocs. Most of the talks will be given by participants, and will be expository in nature. Due to the pandemic, the workshop will most likely utilize a virtual format, with half of the participants invited to join us in person.

Topic description: Hilbert’s third problem asked to produce two polyhedra of equal volume which are not scissors congruent, i.e. which cannot be decomposed into the same (finite) set of isomorphic sub-polygons. In 1901 Dehn showed that a second invariant, now called the Dehn invariant, was preserved under such decompositions, and that this invariant is zero for the cube but nonzero for the regular tetrahedron, thus providing the example Hilbert requested. In 1965 Sydler showed that no other invariants are necessary: if two polyhedra have the same volume and the same Dehn invariant, then they are scissors congruent. Analogs of this problem, in other geometries and in other dimensions, are still open.

By defining the sum of polytopes to be their disjoint union we can define a group structure on scissors congruence classes. Hilbert’s third problem can then be reinterpreted as the question of analyzing these scissors congruence groups. The first part of this course will focus on learning about computations and connections between scissors congruence and algebraic K-theory. The second part will discuss how to construct scissors congruence invariants using K-theory and various implications of these constructions. The third part dives deeper into the technical underpinnings of K-theory to illustrate how the algebraic approaches of classical K-theory can be expanded to include more combinatorial descriptions. More details can be found here

Applications close on Thursday, March 10 at 11:59PM Eastern Time. You can apply online here: http://math.mit.edu/events/talbot/index.php?pageID=application

Homotopy theory with applications to arithmetic and geometry [European side]

2022-06-27 through 2022-06-30
Max Planck Institute
Bonn; Germany

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: Sheel Ganatra, Tyler Lawson, Robert Lipshitz, Nathalie Wahl

Description

Over the last decade, there has been a wealth of new applications of homotopy-theoretic techniques to Floer homology in low-dimensional topology and symplectic geometry, including Manolescu’s disproof of the high-dimensional Triangulation Conjecture and Abouzaid-Blumberg’s proof of the Arnol’d Conjecture in finite characteristic. Conversely, results in Floer theory and categorification have opened new directions of research in homotopy theory, from string topology to S-Lie algebras. The goal of this workshop is to introduce researchers in Floer theory to modern techniques and questions in homotopy theory and, conversely, introduce researchers in homotopy theory to ideas underlying Floer theory and its applications.
