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.

Riemann-Hilbert problems from refined DT

Posted in
Speaker: 
Anna Barbieri
Affiliation: 
Sheffield
Date: 
Fri, 2020-06-05 18:00 - 19:30

This talk is about an instance of a Riemann-Hilbert (RH) problem from refined  Donaldson-Thomas theory. First we will review the solution to the RH problem attached to an uncoupled BPS structure, then we will discuss the statement and a solution to an associated quantized RH problem, corresponding to refined DT theory. The foundation of the topic was presented in the previous talk by Gaetan.

VIRTUAL (Zoom): Equivariant Khovanov homotopy type

Speaker: 
Wojciech Politarczyk
Affiliation: 
Warsaw University
Date: 
Mon, 2020-06-08 15:00 - 16:00
Parent event: 
MPIM Topology Seminar

The Khovanov homotopy type is a space level refinement of Khovanov homology in troduced by Lipshitz and Sarkar. The main
goal of the talk will be to show that the Khovanov homotopy type can be effectively used to study periodic links, i.e., links which are invariant under a finite order rotation of the three-sphere. In particular, by applying the classical localization theorem for Borel cohomology and its extension we obtain interesting relations between Khovanov homology of a periodic link and Khovanov homology of the quotient.

ONLINE: The topological period-index problem

Tue, 2020-06-16 14:00 - 15:00

The topological period-index problem (TPIP), an analogue to the long-standing period-index conjecture in algebraic geometry, concerns a given torsion class α in the 3rd integral cohomology group of a topological space X and various principal PU_n-bundles over X associated to α. Here PU_n is the projective unitary group of order n, i.e., the unitary group U_n modulo invertible scalars. TPIP was first considered by Antieau and Williams in an attempt to find a counterexample to the period-index conjecture, but later turned out to have its own significance.

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.

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.

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.

The topological period-index problem (TPIP), an analogue to the long-standing period-index conjecture in algebraic geometry, concerns a given torsion class α in the 3rd integral cohomology group of a topological space X and various principal PU_n-bundles over X associated to α. Here PU_n is the projective unitary group of order n, i.e., the unitary group U_n modulo invertible scalars. TPIP was first considered by Antieau and Williams in an attempt to find a counterexample to the period-index conjecture, but later turned out to have its own significance.
