Summer Graduate School Commutative Algebra and its Interaction with Algebraic Geometry
Organizers: Craig Huneke (University of Virginia), Sonja Mapes (University of Notre Dame), Juan Migliore (University of Notre Dame), LEAD Claudia Polini (University of Notre Dame), Claudiu Raicu (University of Notre Dame)Linkage is a method for classifying ideals in local rings. Residual intersections is a generalization of linkage to the case where the two `linked' ideals need not have the same codimension. Residual intersections are ubiquitous: they play an important role in the study of blowups, branch and multiple point loci, secant varieties, and Gauss images; they appear naturally in intersection theory; and they have close connections with integral closures of ideals.
Commutative algebraists have long used the Frobenius or pth power map to study commutative rings containing a finite field. The theory of tight closure and test ideals has widespread applications to the study of symbolic powers and to BrianconSkoda type theorems for equicharacteristic rings.
Numerical conditions for the integral dependence of ideals and modules have a wealth of applications, not the least of which is in equisingularity theory. There is a long history of generalized criteria for integral dependence of ideals and modules based on variants of the HilbertSamuel and the BuchsbaumRim multiplicity that still require some remnants of finite length assumptions.
The Rees ring and the special fiber ring of an ideal arise in the process of blowing up a variety along a subvariety. Rees rings and special fiber rings also describe, respectively, the graphs and the images of rational maps between projective spaces. A difficult open problem in commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, elimination theory, and geometric modeling is to determine explicitly the equations defining graphs and images of rational maps.
The school will consist of the following four courses with exercise sessions plus a Macaulay2 workshop
 Linkage and residual intersections
 Characteristic p methods and applications
 Blowup algebras
 Multiplicity theory

Summer Graduate School Mathematics of Machine Learning
Organizers: Sebastien Bubeck (Microsoft Research), Anna Karlin (University of Washington), Adith Swaminathan (Microsoft Research)Learning theory is a rich field at the intersection of statistics, probability, computer science, and optimization. Over the last decades the statistical learning approach has been successfully applied to many problems of great interest, such as bioinformatics, computer vision, speech processing, robotics, and information retrieval. These impressive successes relied crucially on the mathematical foundation of statistical learning.
Recently, deep neural networks have demonstrated stunning empirical results across many applications like vision, natural language processing, and reinforcement learning. The field is now booming with new mathematical problems, and in particular, the challenge of providing theoretical foundations for deep learning techniques is still largely open. On the other hand, learning theory already has a rich history, with many beautiful connections to various areas of mathematics (e.g., probability theory, high dimensional geometry, game theory). The purpose of the summer school is to introduce graduate students (and advanced undergraduates) to these foundational results, as well as to expose them to the new and exciting modern challenges that arise in deep learning and reinforcement learning.

Recently it has become apparent that they constitute a common feature of several other highly active areas of current research in mathematics and also at the interface with physics. In some cases the areas themselves (such as stability conditions on Fukayatype categories, links to quantum integrable systems, or the physically derived construction of socalled spectral networks) are new, while in others the novelty lies more in the role of the holomorphic differentials (for example in the study of billiards in polygons, special  Hitchin or higher Teichmuller  components of representation varieties, asymptotic properties of Higgs bundle moduli spaces, or in new interactions with algebraic geometry).
It is remarkable how widely scattered are the motivating questions in these areas, and how diverse are the backgrounds of the researchers pursuing them. Bringing together experts in this wide variety of fields to explore common interests and discover unexpected connections is the main goal of our program. Our program will be of interest to those working in many different elds, including lowdimensional dynamical systems (via the connection to billiards); differential geometry (Higgs bundles and related moduli spaces); and different types of theoretical physics (electron transport and supersymmetric quantum field theory).

In some cases the areas themselves (such as stability conditions on Fukayatype categories, links to quantum integrable systems, or the physically derived construction of socalled spectral networks) are new, while in others the novelty lies more in the role of the holomorphic differentials (for example in the study of billiards in polygons, special  Hitchin or higher Teichmuller  components of representation varieties, asymptotic properties of Higgs bundle moduli spaces, or in new interactions with algebraic geometry).
It is remarkable how widely scattered are the motivating questions in these areas, and how diverse are the backgrounds of the researchers pursuing them. Bringing together experts in this wide variety of fields to explore common interests and discover unexpected connections is the main goal of our program. Our workshop will be of interest to those working in many different fields, including lowdimensional dynamical systems (via the connection to billiards); differential geometry (Higgs bundles and related moduli spaces); and different types of theoretical physics (electron transport and supersymmetric quantum field theory).

Program Quantum Symmetries
Organizers: Vaughan Jones (Vanderbilt University), LEAD Scott Morrison (Australian National University), Victor Ostrik (University of Oregon), Emily Peters (Loyola University), Eric Rowell (Texas A & M University), LEAD Noah Snyder (Indiana University), Chelsea Walton (University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign)Symmetry, as formalized by group theory, is ubiquitous across mathematics and science. Classical examples include point groups in crystallography, Noether's theorem relating differentiable symmetries and conserved quantities, and the classification of fundamental particles according to irreducible representations of the Poincaré group and the internal symmetry groups of the standard model. However, in some quantum settings, the notion of a group is no longer enough to capture all symmetries. Important motivating examples include Galoislike symmetries of von Neumann algebras, anyonic particles in condensed matter physics, and deformations of universal enveloping algebras. The language of tensor categories provides a unified framework to discuss these notions of quantum symmetry.Updated on Mar 22, 2018 11:21 AM PDT 
Program Higher Categories and Categorification
Organizers: David Ayala (Montana State University), Clark Barwick (University of Edinburgh), David Nadler (University of California, Berkeley), LEAD Emily Riehl (Johns Hopkins University), Marcy Robertson (University of Melbourne), Peter Teichner (MaxPlanckInstitut für Mathematik), Dominic Verity (Macquarie University)Though many of the ideas in higher category theory find their origins in homotopy theory — for instance as expressed by Grothendieck’s “homotopy hypothesis” — the subject today interacts with a broad spectrum of areas of mathematical research. Unforeseen descent, or localtoglobal formulas, for familiar objects can be articulated in terms of higher invertible morphisms. Compatible associative deformations of a sequence of maps of spaces, or derived schemes, can putatively be represented by higher categories, as Koszul duality for E_nalgebras suggests. Higher categories offer unforeseen characterizing universal properties for familiar constructions such as Ktheory. Manifold theory is natively connected to higher category theory and adjunction data, a connection that is most famously articulated by the recently proven Cobordism Hypothesis.
In parallel, the idea of "categorification'' is playing an increasing role in algebraic geometry, representation theory, mathematical physics, and manifold theory, and higher categorical structures also appear in the very foundations of mathematics in the form of univalent foundations and homotopy type theory. A central mission of this semester will be to mitigate the exorbitantly high "cost of admission'' for mathematicians in other areas of research who aim to apply higher categorical technology and to create opportunities for potent collaborations between mathematicians from these different fields and experts from within higher category theory.Updated on Oct 05, 2018 12:21 PM PDT

Program Random and Arithmetic Structures in Topology
Organizers: Nicolas Bergeron (Université de Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie)), Jeffrey Brock (Brown University), Alexander Furman (University of Illinois at Chicago), Tsachik Gelander (Weizmann Institute of Science), Ursula Hamenstädt (Rheinische FriedrichWilhelmsUniversität Bonn), Fanny Kassel (Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES)), LEAD Alan Reid (Rice University)The use of dynamical invariants has long been a staple of geometry and topology, from rigidity theorems, to classification theorems, to the general study of lattices and of the mapping class group. More recently, random structures in topology and notions of probabilistic geometric convergence have played a critical role in testing the robustness of conjectures in the arithmetic setting. The program will focus on invariants in topology, geometry, and the dynamics of group actions linked to random constructions.

Program Decidability, definability and computability in number theory
Organizers: Valentina Harizanov (George Washington University), Moshe Jarden (TelAviv University), Maryanthe Malliaris (University of Chicago), Barry Mazur (Harvard University), Russell Miller (Queens College, CUNY), Jonathan Pila (University of Oxford), LEAD Thomas Scanlon (University of California, Berkeley), Alexandra Shlapentokh (East Carolina University), Carlos Videla (Mount Royal University)This program is focused on the twoway interaction of logical ideas and techniques, such as definability from model theory and decidability from computability theory, with fundamental problems in number theory. These include analogues of Hilbert's tenth problem, isolating properties of fields of algebraic numbers which relate to undecidability, decision problems around linear recurrence and algebraic differential equations, the relation of transcendence results and conjectures to decidability and decision problems, and some problems in anabelian geometry and field arithmetic. We are interested in this specific interface across a range of problems and so intend to build a semester which is both more topically focused and more mathematically broad than a typical MSRI program.

Program Mathematical problems in fluid dynamics
Organizers: Thomas Alazard (École Normale Supérieure; Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), Hajer Bahouri (Université ParisEst Créteil ValdeMarne; Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), Mihaela Ifrim (University of WisconsinMadison), Igor Kukavica (University of Southern California), David Lannes (Université de Bordeaux I; Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), LEAD Daniel Tataru (University of California, Berkeley)Fluid dynamics is one of the classical areas of partial differential equations, and has been the subject of extensive research over hundreds of years. It is perhaps one of the most challenging and exciting fields of scientific pursuit simply because of the complexity of the subject and the endless breadth of applications.
The focus of the program is on incompressible fluids, where water is a primary example. The fundamental equations in this area are the wellknown Euler equations for inviscid fluids, and the NavierStokes equations for the viscous fluids. Relating the two is the problem of the zero viscosity limit, and its connection to the phenomena of turbulence. Water waves, or more generally interface problems in fluids, represent another target area for the program. Both theoretical and numerical aspects will be considered.
