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.

2019 TALBOT WORKSHOP: MODULI SPACES OF MANIFOLDS

Mentored by Soren Galatius and Oscar Randal-Williams

April 7-13, 2019

McCullough County, TX

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. This year's workshop will survey the classical approach to analyzing moduli spaces of manifolds (via surgery theory and pseudoisotopy theory), but will focus on the more recent approach via cobordism categories, fiberwise surgery, and homological stability. It will also touch on a method recently introduced by Weiss exploiting embedding calculus. More details about the program, including a preliminary list of talks and references, can be found here:

http://math.mit.edu/conferences/talbot/

Applications close on Friday, February 1 at 11:59PM. You can apply online here:

Homotopy meets homology

2019-05-27 through 2019-05-31
Hamilton Mathematics Institute, Trinity College Dublin
Dublin; Ireland

Meeting Type: workshop

Contact: Vladimir Dotsenko

Description

Computing various homological invariants of associative algebras (such as Tor and Ext of various modules, Hochschild (co)homology, cyclic homology etc.) has been an active research topic in ring theory for many years. More recently (about 15 years ago), ring theorists became interested in associative algebras up to homotopy, or A-infinity algebras, as a recipe to produce meaningful "higher structures" on classical objects like Yoneda Ext-algebras.

This offers two different perspectives on associative algebras: homological invariants are "Abelian" (i. e. arise when one works with additive categories, e.g. chain complexes of modules over a ring), while homotopical invariants are "non-Abelian" (i. e. arise from non-additive categories, like the category of all differential graded associative algebras). However, these two perspectives are closely related, and it is often possible to recover homological information from the homotopical one, and the other way round. For experts in homotopical algebra on a larger scale (beyond the associative ring theory), this philosophy is already present in works of Stasheff and Hinich on homotopy algebras.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for experts in related areas to share ideas with each other and with younger researchers, identify new promising connections and explore arising research directions.

Description

In recent years, several independent research groups have raised the possibility of a unified approach to the study of Khovanov-Rozansky knot homology, double affine Hecke algebras and elliptic Hall algebras, super Yang-Mills theory, Betti quantum geometric Langlands, and Hilbert schemes, seen through the lens of character varieties and related geometries. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in topological field theory, geometric representation theory, mathematical physics, and algebraic combinatorics to report on recent progress and open questions at the intersection of these fields.

The conference will be preceded by a week-long summer school aimed at graduate and post-doctoral researchers, with the goal to initiate them to the ideas needed to follow the talks the following week. There will be an application process for this, and funding is available to cover the lodging for summer school participants for the duration of both events. We have addtional supplementary NSF funding for the travel costs of US-based summer school participants.

Presentation The CRM and IMUB are pleased to announce the follow-up programme for the IRTATCA: Interactions between Representation Theory, Algebraic Topology and Commutative Algebra intensive research programme that was held in 2015 at the CRM. The program and its follow-up are devoted to promote interactions between researchers from different areas that share a common interest in homological techniques in a broad sense. The original programme gathered around 200 researchers from all over the world, and it is now time to have a look at some of the progress that took place since then.

These two weeks will be structured around one Advanced Course between the 3rd and 7th of June 2019, that will take place at the IMUB and a Conference between the 11th and the 15th of June 2019 that will take place at the CRM.​

Topics The programm is open to all researchers interested in homological algebra and its applications in areas like commutative algebra, representation theory and algebraic topology. This includes but is not restricted to: the study of triangulated categories, derived algebraic geometry, homotopy theory, singularity theory, representation theory, etc.

University of British Columbia

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: see conference website

Description

The last 10 years have brought a burst of activity at the intersection of algebraic topology, number theory and algebraic geometry. This has led to a wealth of: New theorems, such as Ellenberg–Venkatesh–Westerland’s breakthrough results on the Cohen–Lenstra heuristics for function fields; New sources of heuristics in topology, such as Vakil–Wood’s predictions from the Grothendieck ring, or the notion and coincidences of homological densities as in Farb– Wolfson–Wood; Refinements of classical enumerative theorems using modern topological tools, such as Kass–Wickelgren’s arithmetic count of the 27 lines on a cubic surface; and A renewed focus on unstable homology, as in Galatius–Kupers–Randal-Williams and Miller–Wilson. We believe that these results are just the beginning of the emerging area of arithmetic topology.

This 5 day workshop will bring together junior and senior researchers from across these areas with the goal of:

Giving participants a global view of a fast emerging and multidisciplinary area,
Giving participants a detailed awareness on the range of methods available, and
Emerging with a robust problem list which can help guide activity in the area for the next 5-10 years.

The fifth European Talbot workshop will take place in Germany July 7 - 13, 2019. The goal is to bring together a group of 30-35 graduate students and post-docs to work on a focused topic, this year algebraic K-theory, under the guidance of two senior mentors.

Most of the talks were given by the participants, with enough free time in the afternoon and evenings for further discussions and interaction. The character of the workshop is expository in nature, starting with the basic ideas and leading to a survey of the most recent developments in the field. Since all participants are staying together at a group house, jointly responsible for cooking and cleaning, we hope to create an informal and inspiring atmosphere.

Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Equivariant Stable Homotopy Theory and p-adic Hodge Theory" workshop in Banff from March 1 to March 06, 2020.

Algebraic topology has had a long and fruitful collaboration with algebraic geometry, with each providing techniques and problems to the other. This workshop is aimed at an exciting, evolving incarnation of this story: applications of equivariant stable homotopy to number theory. Recent work on the foundations of equivariant stable homotopy theory (starting with the Hill--Hopkins--Ravenel work on the Kervaire invariant one problem) and Lurie's development of the foundations of ''derived algebraic geometry'' now allows systematic exploration and organization of ''equivariant derived algebraic geometry''. This allows us to do ordinary algebraic geometry in commutative ring spectra.

New foundations in this area have been spectacularly applied to phenomena seen in the trace methods approach to computing algebraic K -theory. For instance, although the theory of equivariant commutative ring spectra was described decades ago, few of the subtleties in the theory were understood or explored. The modern approaches to computing algebraic K-groups step through equivariant commutative ring spectra via the natural S1-action on topological Hochschild homology. Ongoing and transformative work by Bhatt--Morrow-Scholze in p-adic Hodge theory uses cyclotomic spectra and therefore subtle equivariant information. This workshop, at the vanguard of work in this area, seeks to bring together experts in algebraic topology, (derived) algebraic geometry, and number theory to explore these exciting new connections.
