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.

Multizeta and emerging related structures in function field arithmetic

MPIM Lecture Hall
Parent event: 
Number theory lunch seminar

We will look at zeta, multizeta and variants taking (transcendental) values in completions of function fields rather than Artin-Weil type zeta (essentially rational functions) in characteristic zero. We discuss results and conjectures on relations they satisfy, independence results and relations to structures such as t-motives, Shtukas, absolute Galois group, Hopf algebras etc.

Mapping class groups of highly connected manifolds, I

MPIM Topology Seminar

The classical mapping class group Γ(g) of a surface of genus g shares many features with its higher dimensional analogue Γ(g,n)—the group of isotopy classes of diffeomorphisms of #ᵍ(Sⁿ x Sⁿ)—but some aspects become easier in high dimensions. This enabled Kreck in the 70’s to describe Γ(g,n) for n>2 in terms of an arithmetic group and the group of exotic spheres. His answer, however, left open two extension problems which were later understood in some dimensions, but remained unsettled in most cases.

Continuing from the previous session, we will define the valuation for exponential sums, a discrete analogue of exponential integrals, and obtain another version of Brion's theorem. We continue to Ehrhart theory, showing polynomiality of lattice counts for polytopes with fixed cones of feasible directions. Finally, we relate exponential sums and exponential integrals via an Euler-Maclaurin type formula.

The Burau representation and its specialisations at roots of unity are closely related to monodromy representations associated to families of cyclic coverings of a fixed degree of the projective line. If the number of ramifications is small relative to the degree, Deligne and Moscow constructed non arithmetic monodromy using these families. We show

General quantization scheme for symplectic manifolds which admit Kähler structures

We will consider arbitrary holomorphic families of Kähler structures on a fixed prequantizable symplectic manifold and provided the corresponding family of Kähler quantisations for level k form a vector bundle over the chosen family of Kähler structures, we will for large enough k construct a large family of Hitchin connections in this bundle. We will also consider a natural family of Hermitian structures on the bundle of quantum spaces and understand which (unique) Hitchin connection is compatible with a given one of these Hermitian structures.

By using geometry of numbers, Minkowski showed that there exists a constant C such that if D_K is the discriminant of a number field K, then |D_K|>C^[K:Q]. In 1978, from the existence of  infinite class field towers, Martinet constructed  sequences of number fi elds of growing degree and  bounded root discriminant.

It is natural to ask if it is possible to extends the previous results to the Artin conductor.

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"

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.
