## MPI-Oberseminar

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.

## Friedrich Hirzebruch Lecture

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.

## Conference on "Integrability, Geometry and Moduli", July 29 - August 2, 2019

## Conference on "Integrability, Geometry and Moduli" July 29 - August 2, 2019

This is a conference in honor of Motohico Mulase's 65th birthday. It will cover recent advances around the following themes

- Quantization of moduli spaces, in particular the Hitchin moduli space of Higgs bundles
- Gromov-Witten theory, Frobenius manifolds, integrable hierarchies, cohomological field theories
- Geometry of quiver varieties, wall-crossing phenomena
- Mirror symmetry, topological string theory, quantum invariants of 3-manifolds
- Topological recursion, quantum curves, and application to geometry and enumerative problems (Hurwitz theory, random matrix theory, ribbon graphs)

Connections between these fields are apparent from the physics perspective and research is trying to make rigorous sense of these relationships. Encouraging the exchanges between mathematicians and theoretical physicists will thus be an important dimension of the conference. More details available soon.

## Some computations in algebraic geometry, dynamics and low dimensional topology

## DAHA approach to algebraic knots and links

DAHA generally provide refined invariants of colored iterated links, which generalize the

WRT-invariants and HOMFLY-PT polynomials. In the uncolored case and for iterated knots,

they are conjectured to coincide with the stable reduced Khovanov-Rozansky polynomials (the most

powerful numerical invariants we have). The "intrinsic" DAHA conjectures are mostly verified

at the moment; these properties are generally difficult to check topologically. The DAHA super-
