Conference on "Homology Growth in Topology and Group Theory", May 13 - 17, 2024

Conference on "Homology Growth in Topology and Group Theory", May 13 - 17, 2024

Homology growth is an umbrella term for a number of invariants associated to a topological space. In their simplest incarnation, they measure the growth of Betti numbers in finite covers of the space. Over the years, homology growth became a central topic in group theory and geometric topology. It connects various topological and geometric phenomena, especially in low-dimensional manifolds, with analytically or combinatorially defined invariants, like L^2-Betti numbers. In particular, homology growth plays a central role in controlling the existence of fiberings, over the circle in the topological setting, and over the integers in the algebraic one. The motivation and guiding principles come from the theory of 3-manifolds.Inspired by Agol's resolution of Thurston's Virtual Fibering Conjecture, homology growth and related ideas have been very recently used both in the algebraic setting of cubulated groups, and in higher dimensional negatively curved manifolds. This conference aims to bring together people behind these recent developments, provide an overview of the field and help formulate a coherent system of conjectures to guide us in the years to come.

Conference on "Motives and Automorphic Forms" in Honour of Günter Harder's 85th Birthday

Datum: 
Mon, 06/03/2023 - 09:00 - Fre, 10/03/2023 - 17:00

Conference on "Motives and Automorphic Forms" in Honour of Günter Harder's 85th Birthday, March 6 - 10, 2023

Following a line of research culminating in the works of Weil, Eichler, Shimura and Taniyama, then further pushed by the emerging of the Langlands program, many deep and fruitful bridges between automorphic forms and algebraic geometry have been explored and led to spectacular results. During the fifty years span from the proof of Ramanujan’s conjecture on the discriminant modular form, using the validity of the Weil conjectures in algebraic geometry over finite fields, to the recent proof of the Sato-Tate conjectures for elliptic curves over CM fields, using automorphic machinery, it has been clearly established that the interaction between these two fields has amazing applications in both directions. Moreover, several guiding principles in this area have been inspired by the philosophy of motives, which has now developed into a mature theory providing not only heuristics, but concrete and sophisticated new tools to attack problems. The aim of the conference is to present the state of the art of the field by gathering leading experts at the crossroads of automorphic forms, arithmetic geometry and representation theory, and celebrating Günter Harder’s influence on these topics.

In case you have any questions, please contact harder85$@$mpim-bonn$.$mpg$.$de.

Mon, 24/04/2023 - 09:00 - Fre, 28/04/2023 - 16:00

Conference on "Arithmetic Statistics, Automorphic Forms and Ergodic Methods", April 24 - 28, 2023

The field of arithmetic statistics is a fast-moving area of number theory, dealing with distributional results for many basic and important objects: ranks of elliptic curves, central values of L-functions, number fields, modular symbols, orbits of discrete groups etc. The techniques involved come from diverse areas of mathematics e.g. automorphic forms, ergodic theory, spectral theory, dynamical systems, probabilistic number theory, representation theory and random matrix theory. This workshop intends to bring together researchers of all career levels to present their work and exchange ideas and techniques on arithmetic statistics. Motivated by the  programme of Mazur and Rubin based on their computational study of elliptic curves over abelian extensions of fixed degree, the meeting will focus on modular symbols, Manin's noncommutative modular symbols, equidistribution of lattice points on the sphere, Heegner points, and closed geodesics, including the error term in the Prime Geodesic Theorem.

There will be invited talks lasting 50 or 25 minutes and other events aimed at facilitating discussions among participants.

Virtual ICM 2022. Live stream and in person talks at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

Posted in
Datum: 
Die, 05/07/2022 (All day) - Don, 14/07/2022 (All day)
The International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 (ICM 2022), which was originally planned for St. Petersburg, will now take place as a fully virtual event over 5–14 July 2022. In order to keep some of the spirit of the ICM, all talks will be streamed live in the MPIM lecture hall (except on the weekend). Three of the talks will be given in person at MPIM by Bernhard Schölkopf, Marc Levine, and Catharina Stroppel. The mathematicians of the Bonn area are kindly invited to convene at MPIM and take part in the virtual ICM 2022 as a community.

No live stream at MPIM on the weekend (July 9+10).

IMU Award Ceremony on July 5th

The award ceremony will take place in Helsinki on July 5th from 9:00-15:15h in Helsinki. The event will be broadcast live in the MPIM lecture hall and can also be watched live on Youtube. The fields medalists will be announced at the beginning of the ceremony. Here is a link to the program of the award ceremony (note that the times are in EEST. CEST is minus 1 hour).

The Azat Miftakhov Days Against the War

The award ceremony will be followed by an event in support of Azat Miftakhov, the Russian mathematician who was imprisoned in 2019 for his political views and sentenced to six years imprisonment in a penal colony for "hooliganism". The event will take place online on July 5th, from 16:00-19:00h, with math talks from Alexander Petrov (Harvard/MPIM), Ilya Dumanski (MIT), and Slava Rychkov (IHES). Here is the link to the program.

Program of the Virtual ICM 2022

If you haven't registered for the ICM Online-Plattform, you can watch ICM 2022 on the IMU Youtube Channel, which collects recordings and shows (some) talks as live stream.

The in person talks given in the MPIM lecture hall will be on:

Monday, July 11, 14:15-15:00h (Schölkopf)
Tuesday, July 12, 14:15-15:00h (Levine)
Wednesday, July 13, 10:15-11:15 (Stroppel)

For technical reasons, it will not be feasible to ask questions during the talks. For the audience in the lecture hall, there will be a short discussion after each talk. Here is the time table for the talks of the virtual ICM 2022.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Registration for award ceremony and talks of Fields medalists on July 5+6

We expect the award ceremony on July 5th and the talks of Fields medalists on July 6th to draw the largest audience of the event. Due to our space restrictions we ask everybody who would like to attend these events in the MPIM lecture hall on July 5+6 to kindly register here (registration closed). For all other talks on July 7-14 no registration is necessary.

Arithmetic Groups and 3-Manifolds, May 16-20, 2022

Arithmetic Groups and 3-Manifolds

Arithmetic groups provide a fruitful link between various areas, such as geometry, topology, representation theory and number theory. Methods from geometry and topology hinge on the fact that arithmetic groups are lattices in Lie groups, whereas the theory of automorphic forms establishes a connection to representation theory and number theory. This interplay is especially intriguing in the setting of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. Indeed many conjectures in 3-manifold theory tend to be much more accessible for hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose fundamental groups are arithmetic, and conversely such manifolds provide the simplest set-up in which some of the most exciting new phenomena in the Langlands program can be studied. This conference will bring together researchers with various backgrounds around links between number theory and 3-manifolds. Central topics of the conference are the cohomology of arithmetic groups, the relation between torsion and L²-torsion, profinite invariants of 3-manifolds, and number theoretic ramifications.

A conference on Algebraic Topology, in memory of Hans-Joachim Baues

This conference is intended to provide an overview of current research in homotopy theory, which has vastly expanded since its roots in the 19th century from the study of topological spaces by algebraic and combinatorial means to other fields of mathematics, including algebraic geometry, differential topology, and mathematical physics.

We will have morning talks presenting comprehensive viewpoints by a selection of experts, with the afternoon dedicated to more specialized talks - all of which should be accessible to a general audience of homotopy theorists.

We are planning to hold the conference as a hybrid event. However, due to the still unpredictable course of the pandemic, we reserve the right to organisational changes.

The registration is closed.

If you have any questions, please contact conference$@$mpim-bonn$.$mpg$.$de.

Twinned Conference on Homotopy Theory with Applications to Arithmetic and Geometry

Mon, 27/06/2022 - 08:00 - Don, 30/06/2022 - 16:00

Twinned Conference on Homotopy Theory with Applications to Arithmetic and Geometry, June 27 - 30, 2022

The field of homotopy theory originated in the study of topological spaces up to deformation, but has since been applied effectively in several other disciplines. Indeed, homotopical ideas led to the resolution of several long-standing open conjectures, for instance on smooth structures on spheres, the moduli of curves, and the cohomology of fields. More recently, Bhatt, Morrow, and Scholze used homotopical methods to compare different cohomology theories for algebraic varieties, thereby resolving open questions in arithmetic geometry. In a similarly arithmetic vein, Galatius and Venkatesh initiated the study of Galois representations with homotopical means, whereas Clausen and Scholze revisited the foundations of analytic topology. These and other recent developments in the interface of arithmetic and topology opened up new lines of attack towards classical open questions, which sparked a wide range of current research activities. This conference intends to survey some of the most spectacular recent advances in the fields, thereby paving the way to new developments and future interactions. Our goal is to foster scientific exchange and collaboration between established researchers, emerging leaders, early career mathematicians, and graduate students.

This will be a split transatlantic conference taking place at the Fields Institute in Canada and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Germany, with videoconferencing connections in place to help collaboration. The concept of the twinned conference was motivated by the desire to reduce environmental impact of conference travels. Our hope is that this initiative will help reduce transatlantic flights, while still promoting long distance interactions. The goal of this twinned conference is to bring together experts on Homotopy Theory and adjacent areas to discuss the forefront of current developments in this highly active field.

We especially welcome applications from members of minority groups.

Geometric Representation Theory

Datum: 
Mon, 22/06/2020 (All day) - Fre, 26/06/2020 (All day)

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

Update!
The talks will be broadcast over Zoom. This will be via an institutional account (through either the PI or the MPI). We will then send you the details for the zoom meeting in due time. In order to participate please register by using the link to the registration form below.
 

Please find the poster presentations, as well as further information on the PI website.

Originally we had planned to have a twinned conference held simultaneously at Max Planck Institute in Bonn, Germany and Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada. In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided that the conference "Geometric Representation Theory" will instead go forward as an online event. The concept of the twinned conference was motivated by the desire to reduce environmental impact of conference travels. Our hope is that this initiative will help reduce transatlantic flights, while still promoting long distance interactions.

In recent years, tools from algebraic geometry and mathematical physics have proven very influential in representation theory. The most famous example is the geometric Langlands program, which is inspired by the original Langlands program in the function field case, but has also included advances in the theory of algebraic groups, Lie algebras and Cherednik algebras.  The goal of this twinned conference is to bring together experts in geometric representation theory and adjacent areas to discuss the forefront of current developments in this highly active field.

Conference on "Higher Homotopy Algebras in Topology", May 9 - 10, 2019



Algebras up to homotopy, or homotopy algebras, such as $A_\infty$, $C_\infty$, $E_\infty$ and $L_\infty$, play an increasingly important role in many areas of mathematics and physics, like topology, mathematical physics, and deformation theory.  Let us mention a few examples of interest. Homotopy Lie algebras, also known as $L_\infty$-algebras, have been essential in Kontsevich's proof of deformation quantization. In algebraic topology, $C_\infty$ and $L_\infty$-algebras arise as structures governing the rational homotopy type of spaces, and $E_\infty$-(co)algebras naturally appear as an algebraic structure on infinite loop spaces and on the singular (co)chains of any space. Recent advances in this line include the use of higher homotopy algebras to model all sorts of interesting spaces, such as mapping spaces, sections of fiber bundles, configuration spaces, among many others.

This mini-conference focuses on the most recent developments and applications of homotopy algebras in topology.
