Applied Topology in Bedlewo

gt.geometric-topology at.algebraic-topology
2021-06-27 through 2021-07-03
Banach Center
Bedlewo; Poland

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Zbigniew Blaszczyk, Pawel Dlotko

Description

Applied and computational topology, one of the most rapidly growing branches of mathematics, is becoming a key tool in applied sciences. It is making impact not only in mathematics, but on the wide interdisciplinary environment including material and medical sciences, data science, robotics. Building upon successful conferences held in Bedlewo in 2013 and 2017, the next edition of Applied Topology in Bedlewo will take place in 2021. Similarly as before, our aim is to bring together scientists from all over the world working in various fields of applied topology. This time we will focus on:

  • random topology,
  • topological methods in combinatorics,
  • topological data analysis and shape descriptors,
  • topological analysis of time-varying data in biology, engineering and finance,
  • topological and geometrical descriptors of porous materials.

Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups: Geometric and Computational Viewpoints

gr.group-theory gt.geometric-topology nt.number-theory
2021-10-03 through 2021-10-08
Banff International Research Station
Banff, AB; Canada

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

A lattice is a discrete collection of regularly ordered points in space. Lattices are everywhere around us, from the patterned stacked arrangements of fruits and vegetables at the grocery to the regular networks of atoms in crystalline compounds. Today lattices find applications throughout mathematics and the sciences, applications ranging from chemistry to cryptography and Wi-Fi networks.

The focus of this meeting is the connections between lattices and number theory and geometry. Number theory, one of the oldest branches of pure mathematics, is devoted to the study properties of the integers and more sophisticated number systems. Lattices and number theory have many deep connections. For instance using number theory it was recently demonstrated that certain packings of balls in high dimensions are optimally efficient. Lattices also appear naturally when one studies certain spaces that play an important role in number theory; one of the main focuses of this meeting is to investigate computational and theoretical methods to understand such spaces and to expand the frontier of our algorithmic knowledge in working with them.

Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups: Duality, Stability, and Computations

gr.group-theory gt.geometric-topology nt.number-theory
2021-10-10 through 2021-10-15
Banff International Research Station
Banff, AB; Canada

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

The cohomology of arithmetic groups is the study of the properties of ``holes'' in geometric spaces that contain information about number theory. The workshop will bring together mathematicians with expertise in number theory, topology, and geometric group theory to tackle these problems and explore recent developments.

Higher Algebraic Structures In Algebra, Topology And Geometry

ag.algebraic-geometry at.algebraic-topology gt.geometric-topology kt.k-theory-and-homology sg.symplectic-geometry
2022-01-10 through 2022-04-29
Institute Mittag-Leffler
Djursholm; Sweden

Meeting Type: research program

Contact: Gregory Arone, Tilman Bauer, Alexander Berglund, Søren Galatius, Jesper Grodal, Thomas Kragh

Description

We are happy to announce that the Institut Mittag-Leffler will be hosting a research program entitled

"HIGHER ALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES IN ALGEBRA, TOPOLOGY AND GEOMETRY”

from January 10, 2022 to April 29, 2022.

Junior researchers (advanced PhD students or young postdocs) can apply for a fellowship to attend the program, covering all expenses (deadline: December 31, 2020). For all others, the program is by invitation only.

Institut Mittag-Leffler in Danderyd, just north of Stockholm, Sweden, is an international centre for research and postdoctoral training in mathematical sciences. The oldest mathematical research institute in the world, it was founded in 1916 by Professor Gösta Mittag-Leffler and his wife Signe, who donated their magnificent villa, with its first-class library, for the purpose of creating the institute that bears their name.
