Workshop on Homotopy theory, manifolds, and field theories

Posted in
Organiser(s): 
Søren Galatius, Haynes Miller, Stefan Schwede, Peter Teichner
Date: 
Mon, 2015-06-15 (All day) - Fri, 2015-06-19 (All day)
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

 

This workshop is part of our Trimester Program at the Hausdorff Institute (HIM)

We are inviting selected speakers to expose their current work, related to the themes of the program. In addition to the HIM members and the Bonn topology community, our limited capacity only allows for about 20 outside participants and we now solicit applications.  By registering below, you can apply for participation/funding.

Mathematische Arbeitstagung 2015

Posted in
Organiser(s): 
Don Zagier, Martin Möller, Christian Blohmann
Date: 
Fri, 2015-06-26 14:00 - Fri, 2015-07-03 17:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

The Arbeitstagung of 2015 will have the general theme

Counting problems on moduli spaces

including such topics as Hurwitz counting problems for coverings, computations of volumes and other combinatorial invariants of moduli spaces of curves and of flat surfaces, Siegel-Veech constants, Gromov-Witten numbers, topological recursion, or dessins d'enfants. There will be mini-courses and research lectures by invited speakers including Alex Eskin, Motohico Mulase, Rahul Pandharipande, and Anton Zorich. The other lectures will be determined in the traditional way by open discussion during the meeting.

Prof. Wolfgang Lück erhält ERC Advanced Grant

Posted in

Prof. Dr. Wolfang Lück, Fellow des Max-Planck-Institute für Mathematik, hat einen hoch dotierten Advanced Grant des European Research Councils (ERC) erhalten. Der Grant wurde ihm für sein Projekt „K-theory, $L^2$-invariants, manifolds, groups and their interactions“ verliehen und ist mit insgesamt 1,7 Millionen Euro dotiert.

Der Leibniz-Preisträger und frühere Präsident der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung kam 2010 von Münster nach Bonn, um die Leitung des Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics (HIM) zu übernehmen. Davor war Professor Lück in den USA und in Mainz tätig. Mit dem Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik ist er bereits seit 1996 verbunden und war immer wieder zu längeren Gastaufenthalten in Bonn. 2012 wurde Prof. Lück zum Max-Planck-Fellow ernannt, eine besondere Auszeichnung, die nur wenigen Wissenschaftlern zuteil wird.

Geometry, Analysis, and Gravitation. Hirzebruch Lecture 2014 by Gerhard Huisken

Posted in
Speaker: 
Gerhard Huisken
Affiliation: 
Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach / Universität Tübingen
Date: 
Wed, 2014-10-29 18:00 - 19:00
Location: 
University Club Bonn

Since ancient times geometric concepts have been used to model astronomical phenomena such as the motion of the planets. In modern times geometry has merged with analysis to provide accurate models of gravitational phenomena involving stars and their planets, black holes and gravitational waves in the context of General Relativity - with the new mathematical insights leading also to progress in the understanding of many other phenomena surrounding us. The lecture describes in a non-technical way how ancient geometric concepts such as the isoperimetric inequality as well as classical concepts from Newtonian physics reappear in the curved space-times of General Relativity.

Do musical improvisation and mathematics research have anything in common? A public jazz performance and mathematics discussion with Rob Schneiderman

Posted in
Speaker: 
Rob Schneiderman (piano), John Goldsby (bass), and Hans Dekker (drums)
Date: 
Tue, 2014-10-21 20:00 - 21:30
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

"Mathematics is not only a solo gig. When two or three mathematicians get together to share their ideas on how to attack a problem, sessions can easily stretch out for hours and even days. The dynamic is not unlike jazz musicians improvising with each spurring the other to go farther than they would go alone." Rob Schneiderman, New York based mathematician, regular guest at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, and professional Jazz pianist together with John Goldsby (bass) and Hans Dekker (drums) will explore the relations between Jazz & Math in a public concert with open discussion. (Free admission)
