Description

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.

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

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.
