Geometric Representation Theory

Date: 
Mon, 2020-06-22 (All day) - Fri, 2020-06-26 (All day)

Twinned conference "Geometric Representation Theory", June 22 - 26, 2020

 

Update!

In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided that the conference "Geometric Representation Theory", which was to be held jointly at the Max Planck Institute and the Perimeter Institute, will not be going forward as an in-person event. We are however keen for the event to go ahead remotely, and we are currently investigating how this might be implemented.

 

Workshop on "$\infty$-categories and their applications", August 17 - 21, 2020

Posted in
Organiser(s): 
Hongyi Chu & Bruno Stonek
Date: 
Mon, 2020-08-17 09:00 - Fri, 2020-08-21 17:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

The quest for solid foundations for $\infty$-categories started several decades ago, but from the mid-2000s there have been spectacular developments which excitingly accelerated the pace of progress. This workshop will focus on these objects, both in their foundations and in the applications to different fields of mathematics. There will be minicourses on $\infty$-categories and on related topics which have benefited substantially from the $\infty$-categorical viewpoint.

Recent developments in Quantum Topology -- Cancelled --

Posted in

We will review the basics of quantum topology such as the colored Jones polynomial of a knot, its standard conjectures relating to asymptotics, arithmeticity and modularity, as well as the recent quantum hyperbolic invariants of Kashaev et al, their state-integrals and their structural properties. The course is aimed to be accessible by graduate students and young researchers.

Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

Given a family Y------> X of smooth projective varieties over a field k, we study the locus X^{ex} of closed points x in X where the rank of the Neron-Severi group of  the fiber of Y------> X at x is bigger then the rank of the generic one. As simple examples show, the properties of X^{ex} depend on the arithmetic of k. We prove that if the characteristic of k is positive and k is infinite finitely generated then this locus is "small", extending previous results in characteristic zero of André and Cadoret-Tamagawa.

-- CANCELLED -- On the Skolem Problem for parametric families of linear recurrence sequences and some G.C.D. problems

Date:

Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall
Parent event: 
Number theory lunch seminar

In this talk we discuss a parametric version of the Skolem Problem about decidability of the existence of a zero in a linear recurrence sequence. We show that in some natural parametric families for all but finitely many values of the parameter in the algebraic closure of the rational numbers it can be effectively solved. We then connect this problem to studying the greatest common divisor of two linear recurrence sequences of polynomials. Also, as an application we obtain an explicit version of a result of F. Amoroso, D. Masser and U.

-- CANCELLED -- Parabolicity conjecture of F-isocrystals

Marco D'Addezio
Affiliation:

Date: 
Tue, 2020-04-14 14:00 - 15:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

We will present recent developments in the theory of overconvergent F-isocrystals, the p-adic analogue of ell-adic lisse sheaves. For the most part of the talk, we will explain a new result on the algebraic monodromy groups of these objects. At the end, we will mention an application of the theorem to the finiteness of separable p-torsion points of an abelian variety.

Parent event: 
Number theory lunch seminar

For a polynomial $f\in\mathbb{K}[X]$ over some field $\mathbb{K}$ we define the sequence of polynomials
$$
f^0(X)=X, \quad \text{and} \quad f^{(n)}(X)=f(f^{(n-1)}(X)), \quad n=1,2,\dots
$$
The polynomial $f$ is said to be stable if all iterates $f^{(n)}$ are irreducible.


It is conjectured, that for a quadratic polynomial $f\in\mathbb{Z}[X]$, its reduction $f_p\in\mathbb{F}_p[X]$ modulo $p$ can be stable just for finitely many primes $p$.

Friedrich Hirzebruch Lecture

Posted in
Location: 
University Club Bonn

The annual Friedrich Hirzebruch Lecture is a series of lectures started in 2007 on the occasion of the 80th birthday of Prof. Friedrich Hirzebruch. The lectures address a general audience and aim at illustrating the relation between mathematics and art, society and other fields.

Date: 
Thu, 2013-01-31 15:00 - Thu, 2026-12-31 16:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

The Oberseminar is a very long running seminar at MPI (‘Ober‘ standing for 'upper'). Its idea is that the guests of the MPI speak in this seminar (hopefully early in their stay) and get the chance to explain their work to the other guests.

Reading group on "Integer points in polyhedra"

Posted in
Organiser(s): 
Gaetan Borot, Alessandro Giacchetto
Location: 
MPIM Seminar Room

Website: https://sites.google.com/view/integerpointsonpolyhedra/home

We will introduce the algebra of (indicator functions) of polyhedra and study its properties. Linear forms on this algebra produce functions on the set of polytopes (i.e. bounded polyhedra), that are compatible with set-theoretic decompositions of polyhedra. For polytopes, the lattice point count or the volume are examples of such linear forms.
