# Upcoming Meetings

## September 2017

### Locally Symmetric Spaces: Analytical and Topological Aspects

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.

## April 2018

### Arbeitsgemeinschaft: Topological Cyclic Homology

Meeting Type: learning workshop

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.

### Derived Algebraic Geometry

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.

### Braids, Resolvent Degree and Hilbert’s 13th Problem

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

### Description

Overview

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.
