Workshop Hot Topics: Perfectoid Spaces and their Applications
Organizers: Sophie Morel (Princeton University), Peter Scholze (Universität Bonn), LEAD Richard Taylor (Institute for Advanced Study), Jared Weinstein (Boston University)Since their introduction just two years ago, perfectoid spaces have played a crucial role in a number of striking advances in arithmetic algebraic geometry: the proof of Deligne's weightmonodromy conjecture for complete intersections in toric varieties; the development of padic Hodge theory for rigid analytic spaces; a padic analogue of Riemann's classification of abelian varieties over the complex numbers; and the construction of Galois representations for torsion classes in the cohomology of many locally symmetric spaces (for instance arithmetic hyperbolic 3manifolds). We will start the week with an exposition of the foundations of the theory of perfectoid spaces, with the aim of teaching novices to work with them. Then we will discuss their current and potential applications.

Workshop Connections for Women: Model Theory and Its Interactions with Number Theory and Arithmetic Geometry
Organizers: Kirsten Eisentraeger (Pennsylvania State University), Julia Gordon (University of British Columbia), Deirdre Haskell (McMaster University)The development of model theory has always been influenced by its potential applications.
Recent years have seen a remarkable flowering of that development, with many exciting applications of model theory in number theory and algebraic geometry. The introductory workshop will aim to increase these interactions by exposing the techniques of model theory to the number theorists and algebraic geometers, and the problems of number theory and algebraic geometry to the model theorists. The Connections for Women workshop will focus on presenting current research on the borders of these subjects, with particular emphasis on the contributions of women. In addition, there will be some social occasions to allow young women and men to make connections with established researchers, and a panel discussion addressing the challenges faced by all young researchers, but especially by women, in establishing a career in mathematics.Updated on Feb 12, 2014 09:59 AM PST

Workshop Introductory Workshop: Mathematical Relativity
Organizers: LEAD Justin Corvino (Lafayette College), Greg Galloway (University of Miami), Hans Ringström (Royal Institute of Technology (KTH))Mathematical relativity is a very widely ranging area of mathematical study, spanning differential geometry, elliptic and hyperbolic PDE, and dynamical systems. We introduce in this workshop some of the leading areas of current interest associated with problems in cosmology, the theory of black holes, and the geometry and physics of the Cauchy problem (initial data constraints and evolution) for the Einstein equations.
The introductory workshop serves as an overview to the overlying programmatic theme. It aims to familiarize graduate students, postdocs, and nonexperts to major and new topics of the current program. Though the audience is expected to have a general mathematical background, knowledge of technical terminology and recent findings is not assumed.

Organizers: Luigi Ambrosio (Scuola Normale Superiore), Lawrence Evans (University of California, Berkeley), LEAD Alessio Figalli (University of Texas)The workshop is intended to give an overview of the research landscape surrounding optimal transportation, including its connections to geometry, design applications, and fully nonlinear partial differential equations.
As such, it will feature some survey lectures or minicourses by distinguished visitors and/or a few of the organizers of the theme semester, amounting to a kind of summer school. These will be complemented by a sampling of research lectures and short presentations from a spectrum of invited guests and other participants, including some who attended the previous week's {\em Connections for Women} workshop.
The introductory workshop aims to familiarize graduate students, postdocs, and nonexperts to major and new topics of the current program. Though the audience is expected to have a general mathematical background, knowledge of technical terminology and recent findings is not assumed.

This transformation occurred partly because longstanding issues could finally be resolved, but also because unexpected connections emerged which linked these questions to classical problems in geometry, partial differential equations, nonlinear dynamics, natural sciences, design problems and economics. The aim of this program will be to gather experts in optimal transport and areas of potential application to catalyze new investigations, disseminate progress, and invigorate ongoing exploration.

Program Mathematical General Relativity
Organizers: Yvonne ChoquetBruhat, Piotr Chrusciel (Universität Wien), Greg Galloway (University of Miami), Gerhard Huisken (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach), LEAD James Isenberg (University of Oregon), Sergiu Klainerman (Princeton University), Igor Rodnianski (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Richard Schoen (Stanford University)The study of Einstein's general relativistic gravitational field equation, which has for many years played a crucial role in the modeling of physical cosmology and astrophysical phenomena, is increasingly a source for interesting and challenging problems in geometric analysis and PDE. In nonlinear hyperbolic PDE theory, the problem of determining if the Kerr black hole is stable has sparked a flurry of activity, leading to outstanding progress in the study of scattering and asymptotic behavior of solutions of wave equations on black hole backgrounds. The spectacular recent results of Christodoulou on trapped surface formation have likewise stimulated important advances in hyperbolic PDE. At the same time, the study of initial data for Einstein's equation has generated a wide variety of challenging problems in Riemannian geometry and elliptic PDE theory. These include issues, such as the Penrose inequality, related to the asymptotically defined mass of an astrophysical systems, as well as questions concerning the construction of non constant mean curvature solutions of the Einstein constraint equations. This semesterlong program aims to bring together researchers working in mathematical relativity, differential geometry, and PDE who wish to explore this rapidly growing area of mathematics.

Summer Graduate School Introduction to the Mathematics of Seismic Imaging
Organizers: LEAD Gunther Uhlmann (University of Washington)In this two week program we will develop some of the mathematical foundations of seismic imaging that is a basic tool used in ``Imaging the Earth Interior". This is one of the components of the Mathematics of Planet Earth year in 2013.
The goal in seismic imaging is to determine the inner structure of the Earth from the crust to the inner core by using information provided by earthquakes in the case of the deep interior or by measuring the reflection of waves produced by acoustic or elastic sources on the surface of the Earth. The mathematics of seismic imaging involves solving inverse problems for the wave equation. No previous experience on inverse problems will be assumed.

Summer Graduate School New Geometric Techniques in Number Theory
Organizers: Toby Gee (Imperial College, London), LEAD Ariane Mezard (Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu), David Nadler (University of California, Berkeley), Peter Scholze (Universität Bonn)The branches of number theory most directly related to automorphic forms have seen enormous progress over the past five years. Techniques introduced since 2008 have made it possible to prove many new arithmetic applications. The purpose of the current workshop is to drow the attention of young students or researchers to new questions that have arisen in the course of bringing several chapters in the Langlands program and related algebraic number theory to a close. We will focus especially on some precise questions of a geometric nature, or whose solutions seem to require new geometric insights. A graduate level in Number Theory is expected.
This twoweek workshop will be devoted to the following subjects: Automorphy lifting theorems, padic local Langlands program, Characters of categorical representations and HasseWeil zeta function. During the first week, the lecturers present an open question and related mathematical objects. The first exercice sessions serve to direct the participants to an appropriate subject depending on their level. During the second week, the lecturers give some more advanced lectures on the field.

Summer Graduate School IAS/PCMI Summer 2013: Geometric Analysis
Organizers: Hubert Bray (Duke University), Greg Galloway (University of Miami), Rafe Mazzeo (Stanford University), Natasa Sesum (Rutgers University)This Summer Graduate Workshop will be held in Park City, Utah.
The Graduate Summer School bridges the gap between a general graduate education in mathematics and the specific preparation necessary to do research on problems of current interest. In general, these students will have completed their first year, and in some cases, may already be working on a thesis. While a majority of the participants will be graduate students, some postdoctoral scholars and researchers may also be interested in attending.
We strongly recommend that graduate students have already had the equivalent of rigorous first year graduatelevel courses in topology, algebra and analysis.
The main activity of the Graduate Summer School will be a set of intensive short lectures offered by leaders in the field, designed to introduce students to exciting, current research in mathematics. These lectures will not duplicate standard courses available elsewhere. Each course will consist of lectures with problem sessions. Course assistants will be available for each lecture series. The participants of the Graduate Summer School meet three times each day for lectures, with one or two problem sessions scheduled each day as well.

Organizers: Craig Huneke (University of Virginia), Yujiro Kawamata (University of Tokyo), Mircea Mustata (University of Michigan), Karen Smith (University of Michigan), Keiichi Watanabe (Nihon University)The workshop will examine the interplay between measures of singularities coming both from characteristic p methods of commutative algebra, and invariants of singularities coming from birational algebraic geometry. There is a long history of this interaction which arises via the "reduction to characteristic p" procedure. It is only in the last few years, however, that very concrete objects from both areas, namely generalized test ideals from commutative algebra and multiplier ideals from birational geometry, have been shown to be intimately connected. This workshop will explore this connection, as well as other topics used to study singularities such as jets schemes and valuations.

Workshop Interactions between Noncommutative Algebra, Representation Theory, and Algebraic Geometry
Organizers: Victor Ginzburg (University of Chicago), Iain Gordon (University of Edinburgh, UK), Markus Reineke (Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany), Catharina Stroppel* (University of Bonn, Germany), and James Zhang (University of Washington)In recent years there have been increasing interactions between noncommutative algebra/representation theory on the one hand and algebraic geometry on the other. This workshop would aim to examine these interactions and, as importantly, to encourage the interactions between the three areas. The precise topics will become more precise nearer the time, but will certainly include:
Noncommutative algebraic geometry; Noncommutative resolutions of singularities and CalabiYau algebras; Symplectic reflection and related algebras; Dmodule theory; Deformationquantization

Workshop Hot Topics: Surface subgroups and cube complexes
Organizers: Ian Agol* (University of California, Berkeley), Danny Calegari (University of Chicago), Ursula Hamenstädt (University Bonn), Vlad Markovic (California Institute of Technology)Recently there has been substantial progress in our understanding of the related questions of which hyperbolic groups are cubulated on the one hand, and which contain a surface subgroup on the other. The most spectacular combination of these two ideas has been in 3manifold topology, which has seen the resolution of many longstanding conjectures. In turn, the resolution of these conjectures has led to a new point of view in geometric group theory, and the introduction of powerful new tools and structures. The goal of this conference will be to explore the further potential of these new tools and perspectives, and to encourage communication between researchers working in various related fields.

Program Cluster Algebras
Organizers: Sergey Fomin (University of Michigan), Bernhard Keller (Université Paris Diderot  Paris 7, France), Bernard Leclerc (Université de Caen BasseNormandie, France), Alexander Vainshtein* (University of Haifa, Israel), Lauren Williams (University of California, Berkeley)Cluster algebras were conceived in the Spring of 2000 as a tool for studying dual canonical bases and total positivity in semisimple Lie groups. They are constructively defined commutative algebras with a distinguished set of generators (cluster variables) grouped into overlapping subsets (clusters) of fixed cardinality. Both the generators and the relations among them are not given from the outset, but are produced by an iterative process of successive mutations. Although this procedure appears counterintuitive at first, it turns out to encode a surprisingly widespread range of phenomena, which might explain the explosive development of the subject in recent years.
Cluster algebras provide a unifying algebraic/combinatorial framework for a wide variety of phenomena in settings as diverse as quiver representations, Teichmueller theory, invariant theory, tropical calculus, Poisson geometry, Lie theory, and polyhedral combinatorics.

Program Commutative Algebra
Organizers: David Eisenbud* (University of California, Berkeley), Srikanth Iyengar (University of Nebraska), Ezra Miller (Duke University), Anurag Singh (University of Utah), and Karen Smith (University of Michigan)Commutative algebra was born in the 19th century from algebraic geometry, invariant theory, and number theory. Today it is a mature field with activity on many fronts.
The yearlong program will highlight exciting recent developments in core areas such as free resolutions, homological and representation theoretic aspects, Rees algebras and integral closure, tight closure and singularities, and birational geometry. In addition, it will feature the important links to other areas such as algebraic topology, combinatorics, mathematical physics, noncommutative geometry, representation theory, singularity theory, and statistics. The program will reflect the wealth of interconnections suggested by these fields, and will introduce young researchers to these diverse areas.
New connections will be fostered through collaboration with the concurrent MSRI programs in Cluster Algebras (Fall 2012) and Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory (Spring 2013).

Summer Graduate School Model Theory
Organizers: David Marker* (University of Illinois, Chicago), Thomas Scanlon (University of California, Berkeley), Carol Wood (Wesleyan University).The workshop will consist of two minicourses, together with a selection of topical lectures.
In the model theory course, ominimality, and specifically the concrete example of the semialgebraic sets of real numbers will provide the setting in which we introduce various fundamental results from model theory.
The algebraic dynamics course will allow the introduction of concepts and proof techniques from number theory and algebraic geometry in the context of applications involving model theory.Toward the end of the workshop, the two minicourses will converge on the PilaWilkie theorem concerning points on analytic varieties, a result crucial in recent applications of ominimality to diophantine geometry.

Summer Graduate School Mathematical General Relativity
Organizers: Justin Corvino* (Lafayette College) and Pengzi Miao (University of Miami)Mathematical general relativity is the study of mathematical problems related to Einstein's theory of gravitation. There are interesting connections between the physical theory and problems in differential geometry and partial differential equations.
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce graduate students to some fundamental aspects of mathematical general relativity, with particular emphasis on the geometry of the Einstein constraint equations and the Positive Mass Theorem. These topics will comprise a component of the upcoming semester program at MSRI in Fall 2013.
There will be minicourses, as well as several research lectures. Students are expected to have had courses in graduate real analysis and Riemannian geometry, while a course in graduatelevel partial differential equations is recommended.

Summer Graduate School IAS/PCMI Summer 2012: Geometric Group Theory
Organizers: Mladen Bestvina (University of Utah), Michah Sageev (Technion – Israel Institute of Technology), and Karen Vogtmann (Cornell University)This Summer Graduate Workshop will be held in Park City, Utah.
Some mobility between the Research in Mathematics and Graduate Summer School programs is expected and encouraged, but interested candidates should read the guidelines carefully and apply to the one program best suited to their field of study and experience. Postdoctoral scholars who are working in the field of Geometric Group Theory should apply to the Research Program in Mathematics, not to the Graduate Summer School.
Graduate students who are beyond their basic courses and recent PhDs in all fields of mathematics are encouraged to apply to the Graduate Summer School. Funding will go primarily to graduate students. Postdoctoral scholars not working in the field of Geometric Group Theory should also apply, but should be within four years of receipt of their PhD.
Deadline for submission of applications is January 31, 2012. Supplemental materials (such as Reference Letters) must be received in the PCMI office by February 4, 2012. Please plan accordingly. (Late applications may be accepted at the discretion of the organizers.) Response may be expected in early April. Financial support is available. Applicants are invited to request financial support by checking the appropriate boxes on the application form.Updated on Mar 20, 2012 11:44 AM PDT 
Summer Graduate School Seminaire de Mathematiques Superieures 2012: Probabilistic Combinatorics
Organizers: Louigi AddarioBerry* (McGill University), Luc Devroye (McGill University), Bruce Reed (McGill University)This Summer Graduate Workshop will be held in Montreal, Canada.
One of the cornerstones of the probabilistic approach to solving combinatorial problems is the following guiding principle: information about global structure can be obtained through local analysis. This principle is ubiquitous in probabilistic combinatorics. It arises in problems ranging from graph colouring, to Markov chain mixing times, to Szemerédi's regularity lemma and its applications, to the theory of influences. The 2012 Séminaire de Mathématiques Supérieures brings together experts in probabilistic combinatorics from around the world, to explain cutting edge research which in one way or another exhibits this principle.

Organizers: Noam Berger (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Nina Gantert (Technical University, Munich), Andrea Montanari (Stanford University), AlainSol Sznitman (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich), and Ofer Zeitouni* (University of Minnesota/Weizmann Institute)The field of random media has been the object of intensive mathematical research over the last thirty years. It covers a variety of models, mainly from condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, and geology, where one is interested in materials which have defects or inhomogeneities. These features are taken into account by letting the medium be random. It has been found that this randomness can cause very unexpected effects in the large scale behavior of these models; on occasion these run contrary to the prevailing intuition. A feature of this area, which it has in common with other areas of statistical physics, is that what was initially thought to be just a simple toy model has turned out to be a major mathematical challenge.

The aim of this workshop is to combine both discrete and continuous approaches, as well as the statistical physics/combinatorial and the probabilistic points of view. Topics include quantum gravity, planar maps, discrete conformal analysis, SLE, and other statistical models such as loop gases.

Workshop Percolation and Interacting Systems
Organizers: Geoffrey R. Grimmett (University of Cambridge), Eyal Lubetzky* (Microsoft Research), Jeffrey Steif (Chalmers University of Technology), and Maria E. Vares (Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas)Over the last ten years there has been spectacular progress in the understanding of geometrical properties of random processes. Of particular importance in the study of these complex random systems is the aspect of their phase transition (in the wide sense of an abrupt change in macroscopic behavior caused by a small variation in some parameter) and critical phenomena, whose applications range from physics, to the performance of algorithms on networks, to the survival of a biological species.
Recent advances in the scope of rigorous scaling limits for discrete random systems, most notably for 2D systems such as percolation and the Ising model via SLE, have greatly contributed to the understanding of both the critical geometry of these systems and the behavior of dynamical stochastic processes modeling their evolution. While some of the techniques used in the analysis of these systems are modelspecific, there is a remarkable interplay between them. The deep connection between percolation and interacting particle systems such as the Ising and Potts models has allowed one model to successfully draw tools and rigorous theory from the other.
The aim of this workshop is to share and attempt to push forward the stateoftheart understanding of the geometry and dynamic evolution of these models, with a main focus on percolation, the random cluster model, Ising and other interacting particle systems on lattices.

Workshop Hot Topics: Thin Groups and Superstrong Approximation
Organizers: Emmanuel Breuillard* (Universite ParisSud, Orsay), Alexander Gamburd (CUNY Graduate Center), Jordan Ellenberg (University of Wisconsin  Madison), Emmanuel Kowalski (ETH Zurich), Hee Oh (Brown University)The workshop will focus on recent developments concerning various quantitative aspects of "thin groups". These are discrete subgroups of semisimple Lie groups which are both « big » (i.e. Zariski dense) and « small » (i.e. of infinite covolume). This dual nature leads to many intricate questions. Over the past few years, many new ideas and techniques, arising in particular from arithmetic combinatorics, have been involved in the study of such groups, leading for instance to farreaching generalizations of the strong approximation theorem in which congruence quotients are shown to exhibit a spectral gap (superstrong approximation).
Simultaneously and sometimes surprisingly, the study of thin groups turns out to be of fundamental importance in a variety of subjects, including equidistribution of homogeneous flows and lattice points counting problems, dynamics on Teichmuller space, the BourgainGamburdSarnak sieve in orbit, and arithmetic or geometric properties of certain types of monodromy groups and coverings. The workshop will gather a variety of experts from group theory, number theory, ergodic theory and harmonic analysis to present the accomplishments to date to a broad audience and discuss directions for further study.

Workshop Introductory Workshop: Lattice Models and Combinatorics
Organizers: Cédric Boutillier (Université Pierre et Marie Curie), Tony Guttmann* (University of Melbourne), Christian Krattenthaler (University of Vienna), Nicolai Reshetikhin (University of California, Berkeley), and David Wilson (Microsoft Research)Research at the interface of lattice statistical mechanics and combinatorial problems of ``large sets" has been and exciting and fruitful field in the last decade or so. In this workshop we plan to develop a broad spectrum of methods and applications, spanning the spectrum from theoretical developments to the numerical end. This will cover the behaviour of lattice models at a macroscopic level (scaling limits at criticality and their connection with SLE) and also at a microscopic level (combinatorial and algebraic structures), as well as efficient enumeration techniques and Monte Carlo algorithms to generate these objects.

Workshop Connections for Women: Discrete Lattice Models in Mathematics, Physics, and Computing
Organizers: Beatrice de Tiliere (University Pierre et Marie Curie), Dana Randall* (Georgia Institute of Technology), and Chris Soteros (University of Saskatchewan)This 2day workshop will bring together researchers from discrete mathematics, probability theory, theoretical computer science and statistical physics to explore topics at their interface. The focus will be on combinatorial structures, probabilistic algorithms and models that arise in the study of physical systems. This will include the study of phase transitions, probabilistic combinatorics, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, and random structures and randomized algorithms.
Since discrete lattice models stand at the interface of these fields, the workshop will start with background talks in each of the following three areas: Statistical and mathematical physics; Combinatorics of lattice models; Sampling and computational issues. These talks will describe the general framework and recent developments in the field and will be followed with shorter talks highlighting recent research in the area.
The workshop will celebrate academic and gender diversity, bringing together women and men at junior and senior levels of their careers from mathematics, physics and computer science.

Program Random Spatial Processes
Organizers: Mireille BousquetMélou (Université de Bordeaux I, France), Richard Kenyon* (Brown University), Greg Lawler (University of Chicago), Andrei Okounkov (Columbia University), and Yuval Peres (Microsoft Research Laboratories)In recent years probability theory (and here we mean probability theory in the largest sense, comprising combinatorics, statistical mechanics, algorithms, simulation) has made immense progress in understanding the basic twodimensional models of statistical mechanics and random surfaces. Prior to the 1990s the major interests and achievements of probability theory were (with some exceptions for dimensions 4 or more) with respect to onedimensional objects: Brownian motion and stochastic processes, random trees, and the like. Inspired by work of physicists in the ’70s and ’80s on conformal invariance and field theories in two dimensions, a number of leading probabilists and combinatorialists began thinking about spatial process in two dimensions: percolation, polymers, dimer models, Ising models. Major breakthroughs by Kenyon, Schramm, Lawler, Werner, Smirnov, Sheffield, and others led to a rigorous underpinning of conformal invariance in twodimensional systems and paved the way for a new era of “twodimensional” probability theory.

Workshop Probabilistic Reasoning in Quantitative Geometry
Organizers: Anna Erschler* (Université ParisSud), Assaf Naor (Courant Institute), and Yuval Peres (Microsoft Research)"Probabilistic Reasoning in Quantitative Geometry" refers to the use of probabilistic techniques to prove geometric theorems that do not have any a priori probabilistic content. A classical instance of this approach is the probabilistic method to prove existence of geometric objects (examples include Dvoretzky's theorem, the JohnsonLindenstrauss lemma, and the use of expanders and random graphs for geometric constructions). Other examples are the use of probabilistic geometric invariants in the local theory of Banach spaces (sums of independent random variables in the context of type and cotype, and martingalebased invariants), the more recent use of such invariants in metric geometry (e.g., Markov type in the context of embedding and extension problems), probabilistic tools in group theory, the use of probabilistic methods to prove geometric inequalities (e.g., maximal inequalities, singular integrals, Grothendieck inequalities), the use of probabilistic reasoning to prove metric embedding results such as Bourgain's embedding theorem (where the embedding is deterministic, but its analysis benefits from a probabilistic interpretation), probabilistic interpretations of curvature and their applications, and the use of probabilistic arguments in the context of isoperimetric problems (e.g., Gaussian, rearrangement, and transportation cost methods).

Program Quantitative Geometry
Organizers: Keith Ball (University College London, United Kingdom), Emmanuel Breuillard (Université ParisSud 11, France) , Jeff Cheeger (New York University, Courant Institute), Marianna Csornyei (University College London, United Kingdom), Mikhail Gromov (Courant Institute and Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques, France), Bruce Kleiner (New York University, Courant Institute), Vincent Lafforgue (Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France), Manor Mendel (The Open University of Israel), Assaf Naor* (New York University, Courant Institute), Yuval Peres (Microsoft Research Laboratories), and Terence Tao (University of California, Los Angeles)The fall 2011 program "Quantitative Geometry" is devoted to the investigation of geometric questions in which quantitative/asymptotic considerations are inherent and necessary for the formulation of the problems being studied. Such topics arise naturally in a wide range of mathematical disciplines, with significant relevance both to the internal development of the respective fields, as well as to applications in areas such as theoretical computer science. Examples of areas that will be covered by the program are: geometric group theory, the theory of Lipschitz functions (e.g., Lipschitz extension problems and structural aspects such as quantitative differentiation), large scale and coarse geometry, embeddings of metric spaces and their applications to algorithm design, geometric aspects of harmonic analysis and probability, quantitative aspects of linear and nonlinear Banach space theory, quantitative aspects of geometric measure theory and isoperimetry, and metric invariants arising from embedding theory and Riemannian geometry. The MSRI program aims to crystallize the interactions between researchers in various relevant fields who might have a lack of common language, even though they are working on related questions.

Summer Graduate School Cluster Algebras and Cluster Combinatorics
Organizers: Gregg Musiker (University of Minnesota), Lauren Williams* (University of California, Berkeley)Cluster algebras are a class of combinatorially defined rings that provide a unifying structure for phenomena in a variety of algebraic and geometric contexts. A partial list of related areas includes quiver representations, statistical physics, and Teichmuller theory. This summer workshop for graduate students will focus on the combinatorial aspects of cluster algebras, thereby providing a concrete introduction to this rapidlygrowing field. Besides providing background on the fundamentals of cluster theory, the summer school will cover complementary topics such as total positivity, the polyhedral geometry of cluster complexes, cluster algebras from surfaces, and connections to statistical physics. No prior knowledge of cluster algebras will be assumed.
The workshop will consist of four minicourses with accompanying tutorials. Students will also have opportunities for further exploration using computer packages in Java and Sage.

Organizers: Scientific Committee: David Cox* (Amherst College) and Hal Schenck (University of Illinois)
Organizing Committee: Giorgio Patrizio (Università di Firenze, Italy) and Sandro Verra (Università di Roma Tre, Italy)In cooperation with INdAM (Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica) and the SMI (Scuola Matematica Interuniversitaria), MSRI will sponsor a summer graduate workshop (SGW) on toric varieties in Cortona during summer of 2011; the workshop will reprise the very successful SGW on toric varieties held at MSRI in 2009.
Toric varieties are algebraic varieties defined by combinatorial data, and there is a wonderful interplay between algebra, combinatorics and geometry involved in their study. Many of the key concepts of abstract algebraic geometry (for example, constructing a variety by glueing affine pieces) have very concrete interpretations in the toric case, making toric varieties an ideal tool for introducing students to abstruse concepts.Special restrictions apply, please see the workshop homepage.

Summer Graduate School Geometric Measure Theory and Applications
Organizers: Camillo De Lellis (Universität Zürich), Tatiana Toro* (University of Washington)Geometric Measure Theory (GMT) is a field of Mathematics that has contributed greatly to the development of the calculus of variations and geometric analysis. In recent years it has experienced a new boom with the development of GMT in the metric space setting which has lead to unexpected applications (for examples to questions arising from theoretical computer sciences). The goal of this summer graduate workshop is to introduce students to different aspects of this field. There will be 5 minicourses and a couple of research lectures. We expect students to have a solid background in measure theory.

Summer Graduate School IASPCMI Summer School on Moduli Spaces of Riemann Surfaces
Organizers: Benson Farb (University of Chicago), Richard Hain (Duke University), and Eduard Looijenga (University of Utrecht, Netherlands)The study of moduli spaces of Riemann surface is a rich mixture of geometric topology, algebraic topology, complex analysis and algebraic geometry. Each community of researchers that studies these moduli spaces generates its own problems and its own techniques for solving them. However, it is not uncommon for researchers in one community to solve problems generated by another once they become aware of them. The goal of this summer school is to give graduate students a broad background in the various approaches to the study of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces so that they will be aware of the problems and techniques of many of the communities that study these fascinating objects. Graduate student participants from the various communities will be encouraged to interact with their colleagues from the other communities of students in order to maximize cross fertilization.

Organizers: Nicola Arcozzi (Universita' di Bologna), Richard Rochberg (Washington University), Eric T Sawyer (McMaster University), Brett D Wick* (Georgia Institute of Technology)This workshop will focus on the classical Dirichlet space of holomorphic functions on the unit disk. This space is at the center of several active, interrelated areas of research that, viewed more broadly, focus on the interaction between function theoretic operator theory and potential theory. There are several goals of this Summer Graduate Workshop. First, mathematically, the workshop will demonstrate the basic properties of the Dirichlet space, then introduce the technique of Trees in Function Spaces. The workshop will show the interconnections between the areas of Complex Analysis, Function Theory, and Operator Theory and will also illustrate the realvariable analogues of the analytic result discussed.

Organizers: John King (University of Nottingham), Arshak Petrosyan* (Purdue University), Henrik Shahgholian (Royal Institute of Technology), and Georg Weiss (University of Dusseldorf)Many problems in physics, industry, finance, biology, and other areas can be described by partial differential equations that exhibit apriori unknown sets, such as interfaces, moving boundaries, shocks, etc. The study of such sets, also known as free boundaries, often occupies a central position in such problems. The main objective of the workshop is to bring together experts in various theoretical an applied aspects of free boundary problems.

Workshop Workshop on Mathematics Journals
Organizers: James M Crowley (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), Susan Hezlet* (London Mathematical Society), Robion C Kirby (University of California, Berkeley), and Donald E McClure (American Mathematical Society)Mathematics relies on its journal literature as the main conduit for peer review and dissemination of research, and it does so more heavily and differently to other scientific fields. The conflict between universal access and the traditional subscription model that funds the journals has been debated for the past decade, while hard data on financial sustainability and usage under the different models has been slow to appear. However the last ten years have seen the move from print to the electronic version of journals becoming the version of record and the workshop plans to take an evidencebased approach to discussing dissemination, access and usage of mathematics journals.

Workshop Introductory Workshop: Arithmetic Statistics
Organizers: Barry Mazur (Harvard University), Carl Pomerance (Dartmouth College), and Michael Rubinstein* (University of Waterloo)Our Introductory Workshop will focus largely on the background, recent work, and current problems regarding: Selmer groups and MordellWeil groups, and the distribution of their ranks (and "sizes") over families of elliptic curves, including recent work of Manjul Bhargava and Arul Shankar where they have shown that the average size of the 2Selmer group of an elliptic curve over Q is 3, and thereby obtains information about the average rank of MordellWeil groups; related work on the asymptotics of number fields; certain natural families of Lfunctions, and the statistical distribution of their zeros and values; complementary algorithmic methods and experimental results regarding Lfunctions, automorphic forms, elliptic curves and number fields; the statistical behavior of eigenvalues of Frobenius elements in Galois representations.

Organizers: Chantal David (Concordia University) and Nina Snaith* (University of Bristol)The format of this 2day workshop will be colloquiumstyle presentations that will introduce some of the major topics touched on by the "Arithmetic Statistics" program. They will be pitched so as to be understandable to researchers with a variety of mathematical backgrounds. The talks are designed broadly as a leadin to the program's initial workshop (taking place the following week) and will include topics such as the SatoTate conjecture, random matrix theory, and enumeration of number fields. The purpose will be to provide background but also to present the exciting areas where progress is happening fast, where major problems have been solved, or where there are significant open questions that need to be tackled. With this we aim to provide motivation for the Connections participants to involve themselves with the remainder of the program.

Workshop Introductory Workshop: Free Boundary Problems, Theory and Applications
Organizers: Tatiana Toro* (University of Washington)Many problems in physics, industry, finance, biology, and other areas can be described by partial differential equations that exhibit a priori unknown sets, such as interfaces, moving boundaries or shocks for example. The study of such sets, also known as free boundaries, often plays a central role in the understanding of such problems. The aim of this workshop is to introduce several free boundary problems arising in completely different areas.

In multivariate statistics, random matrix models were introduced in the late 1920s by John Wishart and subsequently developed by Anderson, James and others. Since these early beginnings RMT has found an extraordinary variety of mathematical, physical and engineering applications that, to name some, include number theory, stochastic growth models, tiling problems and wireless communications.

There will be talks on relevant aspects of equivariant stable homotopy theory, including the norm functor and the slice tower. The pertinent parts of chromatic homotopy theory will be covered including formal groups and formal $A$modules, the HopkinsMiller theorem, finite subgroups of Morava stabilizer groups and Ravenel's 1978 solution to the analogous problem at primes bigger than 3. There will also be several talks by the organizers giving a detailed account of the proof of the main theorem. Finally there will be a discussion of the questions raised by the unexpected statement of the theorem.

Symplectic geometry originated as a mathematical language for Hamiltonian mechanics, but during the last 3 decades it witnessed both, spectacuar development of the mathematical theory and discovery of new connections and applications to physics. Meanwhile, noncommutative geometry naturally entered into this picture.Updated on Jun 07, 2013 02:53 PM PDT 
Workshop Symplectic and Poisson Geometry in interaction with Algebra, Analysis and Topology
Organizers: Yakov Eliashberg (Stanford University), Alvaro Pelayo* (University of California, Berkeley), Steve Zelditch (Northwestern University), Maciej Zworski (University of California, Berkeley)The first week of May 2010 coincides with the first year anniversary of Alan Weinstein's retirement from UC Berkeley; Weinstein has been one of the most influential figures in symplectic geometry, Poisson geometry and analysis in the past forty years. Weinstein's fundamental work inspired many others and led to the development of central concepts in symplectic and Poisson geometry, as well as to the establishment of symplectic geometry as an independent discipline within mathematics. This conference will be a forum to celebrate Weinstein's fundamental contributions to geometry and mathematics at large.

Workshop Symplectic and Contact Topology and Dynamics: Puzzles and Horizons
Organizers: Paul Biran (Tel Aviv University), John Etnyre (Georgia Institute of Technology), Helmut Hofer (Courant Institute), Dusa McDuff *(Barnard College), Leonid Polterovich (Tel Aviv University),This workshop will focus on recent progress in central problems in
symplectic and contact topology and Hamiltonian dynamics such as
rigidity of Lagrangian submanifolds, algebra/topology/geometry of
symplectomorphism and contactomorphism groups, exotic symplectic and
contact structures, and existence of
periodic orbits of Hamiltonian systems and Reeb flows.
It will explain applications of the "large machines"
such as Floer Theory, Symplectic Field Theory and Fukaya categories,
showing where these machines do not yet provide satisfactory
answers. Special attention will also be paid to articulating
new problems and
directions, as well as to explaining
interactions between symplectic and contact
topology and other fields.Updated on Jun 07, 2013 11:13 AM PDT 
Workshop Research Workshop: Homology Theories of Knots and Links
Organizers: Peter S. Ozsváth* (Columbia University), Mikhail Khovanov (Columbia University), Peter Teichner (UC Berkeley).Link homology is a young and rapidlydeveloping area drawing on many branches of mathematics. The subject has its roots in representation theory, and it has benefitted from its interactions with lowdimensional, classical, and quantum topology and symplectic geometry. Indeed, several recent developments have underscored the close parallels between link homology and Floer homological invariants for lowdimensional manifolds.

Workshop Introductory Workshop: Homology Theories of Knots and Links
Organizers: Aaron Lauda (Columbia University), Robert Lipshitz (Columbia University), Dylan Thurston* (Columbia University).This workshop will introduce the main branches in the study of knot homology theories. It will consist of three minicourses, one on knot Floer homology and related topics; one on the various approaches to
Khovanov and KhovanovRozansky homology; and one on categorification on quantum groups. (There will also be several standalone lectures.) The techniques involved in the three branches are quite different; in
particular, Heegaard Floer theory is analytic in nature, with its origin in gauge theory and symplectic geometry, while both Khovanov homology and categorification are more algebraic in nature, with origins in representation theory and algebraic geometry. The workshop will provide an opportunity for graduate students and researchers
outside the field to gain entry, as well as for researchers working in one part of the field to learn about techniques and developments in other parts.

Organizers: Elisenda Grigsby* (Columbia), Olga Plamenevskaya (SUNY/Stonybrook), and Katrin Wehrheim (MIT)This 2day workshop will serve as a prelude to the introductory workshop for the semesterlong program on homology theories of knots and links. Survey talks in the mornings will position the work in Khovanov and Heegaard Floer homology in a broader context, focusing on:
1) applications to classical questions in lowdimensional topology, and
2) connections to contact and symplectic topology.Research talks in the afternoons will highlight the range of current activity in the field. We plan a format of no more than four talks each day to allow ample time for presentation opportunities for younger researchers and formal and informal discussions.

Workshop Macaulay2 Workgroup
Organizers: David Eisenbud* (University of California, Berkeley), Amelia Taylor (Colorado College), Hirotachi Abo (University of Idaho), Mike Stillman (Cornell University) and Dan Grayson (University of Illinois, UrbanaChampaign)/Macaulay2/ is a software system devoted to supporting research in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Its creation and development have been funded by the National Science Foundation since 1992.
/Macaulay2/ includes core algorithms for computing Gröbner bases and graded or multigraded free resolutions of modules over quotient rings of graded or multigraded polynomial rings with a monomial ordering. The core algorithms are accessible through a versatile high level interpreted user language with a powerful debugger supporting the creation of new classes of mathematical objects and the installation of methods for computing specifically with them. /Macaulay2/ can compute Betti numbers, Ext, cohomology of coherent sheaves on projective varieties, primary decomposition of ideals, integral closure of rings, and more.
The goal of the workshop was to work at improving and augmenting the functionality of some of the existing packages. Likely projects included computing sheaf cohomology, intersection theory, and enumerative geometry.

Workshop Tropical Structures in Geometry and Physics
Organizers: Mark Gross ( University of California San Diego), Kentaro Hori (University of Toronto), Viatcheslav Kharlamov (Université de Strasbourg (Louis Pasteur), Richard Kenyon* (Brown University)One of the successes of tropical geometry is its applications to a number of different areas of recently developing mathematics. Among these are enumerative geometry, symplectic field theory, mirror symmetry, dimer models/random surfaces, amoebas and algas, instantons, cluster varieties, and tropical compactifications. While these fields appear quite diverse, we believe the common meeting ground of tropical geometry will provide a basis for fruitful interactions between participants.

Workshop Algebraic Structures in the Theory of Holomorphic Curves
Organizers: Mohammed Abouzaid* ( Clay Mathematics Institute), Yakov Eliashberg (Stanford University), Kenji Fukaya (Kyoto University), Eleny Ionel (Stanford University), Lenny Ng (Duke University), Paul Seidel (MIT).The theory of holomorphic curves in symplectic manifolds leads
to rich algebraic structures. The study of these structures is
increasingly important both for understanding the theory itself, and
for actual computations and applications. The aim of the workshop
is to survey ongoing developments in the area. Some of the topics
of interest are: cohomological field theories; relative and tropical
GromovWitten invariants; Symplectic Field Theory (SFT) and connections
with string topology; theories of holomorphic curves with Lagrangian
boundary conditions, such as relative SFT, open GromovWitten theory,
and Fukaya categories.Updated on Jun 07, 2013 02:53 PM PDT

Organizers: John Etnyre* (Georgia Institute of Technology), Dusa McDuff (Barnard College, Columbia University), and Lisa Traynor (Bryn Mawr).This workshop aims both to introduce
people to a broad swath of the field
and to frame its most important problems.
Each day will be organized around a
basic topic, such as how to count holomorphic
curves with boundary on a Lagrangian submanifold (which
leads to various versions of Floer theory)
or how to understand the general structure of
symplectic and contact manifolds.
There will also be an introduction to the
analytic and algebraic aspects of symplectic
field theory, and a discussion of some applications.Updated on Jun 07, 2013 02:51 PM PDT 
Program Tropical Geometry
Organizers: EvaMaria Feichtner *(University of Bremen), Ilia Itenberg (Institut de Recherche Mathématique Avancée de Strasbourg), Grigory Mikhalkin (Université de Genève), and Bernd Sturmfels (UCB  University of California, Berkeley)Tropical Geometry is the algebraic geometry over the minplus algebra. It is a young subject that in recent years has both established itself as an area of its own right and unveiled its deep connections to numerous branches of pure and applied mathematics. From an algebraic geometric point of view, algebraic varieties over a field with nonarchimedean valuation are replaced by polyhedral complexes, thereby retaining much of the information about the original varieties. From the point of view of complex geometry, the geometric combinatorial structure of tropical varieties is a maximal degeneration of a complex structure on a manifold.
The tropical transition from objects of algebraic geometry to the polyhedral realm is an extension of the classical theory of toric varieties. It opens problems on algebraic varieties to a completely new set of techniques, and has already led to remarkable results in Enumerative Algebraic Geometry, Dynamical Systems and Computational Algebra, among other fields, and to applications in Algebraic Statistics and Statistical Physics.

Program Symplectic and Contact Geometry and Topology
Organizers: Yakov Eliashberg *(Stanford University), John Etnyre (Georgia Institute of Technology), ElenyNicoleta Ionel (Stanford University), Dusa McDuff (Barnard College), and Paul Seidel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)In the slightly more than two decades that have elapsed since the fields of Symplectic and Contact Topology were created, the field has grown enormously and unforeseen new connections within Mathematics and Physics have been found. The goals of the 200910 program at MSRI are to:
I. Promote the crosspollination of ideas between different areas of symplectic and contact geometry;
II. Help assess and formulate the main outstanding fundamental problems and directions in the field;
III. Lead to new breakthroughs and solutions of some of the main problems in the area;
IV. Discover new applications of symplectic and contact geometry in mathematics and physics;
V. Educate a new generation of young mathematicians, giving them a broader view of the subject and the capability to employ techniques from different areas in their research.

Summer Graduate School Summer Graduate Workshop: Symplectic and Contact Geometry and Topology
Organizers: John Etnyre (Georgia Institute of Technology), Dusa McDuff* (Barnard College, Columbia University) and Lisa Traynor (Bryn Mawr College).Symplectic and Contact Topology has undergone rapid and exciting growth
in the past few decades and is currently a rich subject, employing a variety of diverse techniques and touching on many areas of mathematics, such as algebraic and differential geometry, dynamical systems and low dimensional topology. This workshop is intended both for graduate students new to the
area and for those working in the field.
Lectures in the first week will introduce participants to basic topological, geometric and analytic techniques, including Jholomorphic curves. The second week will discuss applications to symplectic geometry and to 3dimensional topology and knot theory. A variety of discussion
sessions in the afternoon will cater to the differing interests of the students. Participants may consider staying for the Connections for Women and/or the Introductory workshop to the year long Symplectic Geometry program that starts just after this workshop.

Summer Graduate School Inverse Problems
Organizers: Gunther Uhlmann* (University of Washington).Inverse Problems are problems where causes for a desired or an observed effect are to be determined. They lie at the heart of scientific inquiry and technological development. Applications include a number of medical as well as other imaging techniques, location of oil and mineral deposits in the earth's substructure, creation of astrophysical images from telescope data, finding cracks and interfaces within materials, shape optimization, model identification in growth processes and, more recently, modelling in the life sciences.
The workshop will consist of several minicourses addressing several of the theoretical and practical issues arising in inverse problems including boundary rigidity and travel time tomography, cloaking and invisibility, electrical impedance imaging, statistical methods and biological applications, thermoacoustic and xray tomography, and resonances.

Summer Graduate School Computational Theory of Real Reductive Groups (Salt lake City)
Organizers: Jeffrey Adams (University of Maryland) , Peter Trapa* (University of Utah), Susana Salamanca (New Mexico State University), John Stembridge (University of Michigan), and David Vogan (MIT).The structure of real reductive algebraic groups is controlled by a remarkably simple combinatorial framework, generalizing the presentation of Coxeter groups by generators and relations. This framework in turn makes much of the infinitedimensional representation theory of such groups amenable to computation.
The Atlas of Lie Groups and Representations project is devoted to looking at representation theory from this computationally informed perspective. The group (particularly Fokko du Cloux and Marc van Leeuwen) has written computer software aimed at supporting research in the field, and at helping those who want to learn the subject.
The workshop will explore this point of view in lecture series aimed especially at graduate students and postdocs with only a modest background (such as the representation theory of compact Lie groups).
Deadline for funding applications: 1 March, 2009.

Organizers: Jinho Baik ( University of Michigan), Percy Deift* (New York University),Toufic Suidan (University of Arizona), Brian Rider (University of Colorado)The goal of this workshop is twofold: (1) to describe many of the recent advances that have been made in the application of random matrix theory to problems in mathematics and physics (2) to develop some of the mathematical tools that are needed to enter the field. Applications of random matrix theory are now being made to number theory, combinatorics, statistical physics and statistics amongst other fields. The techniques employed in the field include methods from integrable systems, combinatorics, complex analysis, orthogonal polynomials and of course random matrix theory per se.

Organizers: David Cox ( Amherst College) and Hal Schenck (University of Illinois)Toric varieties are algebraic varieties defined by combinatorial data, and there is a wonderful interplay between algebra, combinatorics and geometry involved in their study. Many of the key concepts of abstract algebraic geometry (for example, constructing a variety by gluing affine pieces) have very concrete interpretations in the toric case, making toric varieties an ideal tool for introducing students to abstruse concepts.

Stochastic and multiscale modeling is becoming a main driving force in many scientific and engineering disciplines, and is a mong the most exciting areas of scientific research. Indeed, many problems in sciences involve quantifying the behavior of complex systems with a very large number of degrees of freedom. The systems interact on al arge span of scales and require to incorporate stochastic effects to account for model errors and/or disturbances from underresolvedscales.

Workshop Algebraic Statistics
Organizers: Serkan Hosten (SFSU), Lior Pachter (UCB), Bernd Sturmfels (UCB)Algebraic statistics is a maturing discipline focused on the applications of algebraic geometry and its computational
tools in the study of statistical models. Initial results in the area were related to specific problems in categorial data analysis and experimental design, however
a flurry of activity during the past several years has greatly increased the scope of the subject. Areas of interest now include graphical models, maximum likelihood estimation and
Bayesian methods. Moreover, a strong connection has developed to applications in the physical and biological sciences. The field draws its tools not only from computational
algebraic geometry but also from tropical, convex, and information geometry. Moreover, research in algebraic statistics has led to new directions in those fields. The workshop
will be a meeting point for students and leaders in the field. It will present a focused activity parallel to the 20082009 program on Algebraic Methods in Systems Biology and Statistics being hosted by
the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute.Updated on Jun 07, 2013 02:49 PM PDT 
Workshop Using Partnerships to Strengthen Elementary Mathematics Teacher Education
Organizers: Deborah Ball (University of Michigan), James Lewis (University of Nebraska), and William McCallum (University of Arizona)A core problem – perhaps the central problem – for improving elementary school mathematics is the mathematical education of elementary teachers. The historic isolation of elementary teachers’ study of mathematics from their pedagogical preparation is increasingly seen to be both unnatural and ineffective. Indeed, the mathematical education of elementary teachers is inherently interdisciplinary as future teachers seek to gain the mathematical knowledge, the pedagogical knowledge and the knowledge of young students that is needed to become a successful mathematics teacher. Thus, it seems reasonable that an integrative learning approach to mathematical education of elementary teachers could yield substantial benefits.

Workshop International Conference on Cluster Algebras and Related Topics
Organizers: Christof Geiss (UNAM Ciudad Universitaria), Bernhard Keller (Université Paris Diderot  Paris 7), Idun Reiten (Nettstedskart Tilgjengelighet Norges TekniskNaturvitenskapelige Universite), Andrei Zelevinsky (Nostheastern University).Location: Morelia/Mexico City
This is a combination of a conference and workshop on cluster algebras and their relations to geometry, representation theory and combinatorics. The workshop will take place in Morelia (a colonial town about 250km west of MexicoCity), December 813, 2008 followed by the conference in MexicoCity, December 1520.The Research in this area developed with amazing speed after the introduction of cluster algebras around 2001 by Sergey Fomin and Andrei Zelevinsky and has attracted a variety of first rate mathematicians throughout the world, for instance Alexander Goncharov, Bernhard Keller, Maxim Kontsevich, Bernard Leclerc, Idun Reiten and Claus Michael Ringel, most of them being ICM speakers.
A good way to get an overview of the intense activities related to cluster algebras is Sergey Fomin's cluster algebras portal:

Workshop Statistical and Computational Challenges in NextGeneration Sequencing
Organizers: Sandrine Dudoit, Terry Speed, Margaret TaubFor the past decade, microarrays have been the assays of choice for highthroughput studies of gene expression. Recent improvements in the efficiency, quality, and cost of genomewide sequencing are prompting biologists to rapidly abandon microarrays in favor of socalled nextgeneration sequencers, e.g., Applied Biosystems' SOLiD, Helicos BioSciences' HeliScope, Illumina's Solexa, and Roche's 454 Life Sciences sequencing systems. These highthroughput sequencing technologies have already been applied for studying genomewide transcription levels (mRNASeq), transcription factor binding sites (ChIPSeq), chromatin structure, and DNA methylation status. While sequencingbased gene expression studies have been touted as overcoming longstanding limitations of microarraybased studies, these new biotechnologies raise similar as well as novel statistical and computational challenges.

Workshop Topology of Stratified Spaces
Organizers: Greg Friedman, Eugénie Hunsicker, Anatoly Libgober, and Laurentiu MaximThis workshop will bring together researchers interested in the topology of stratified spaces. It will focus roughly on four topics: topology of complex varieties, signature theory on singular spaces, L^{2} and intersection cohomology, and mixed Hodge theory and singularities. Aside from talks on current research, there will be a series of introductory lectures on these themes. These talks will be aimed at strengthening the connections among the various topology research groups and the connections between topology researchers and researchers at the program on Analysis of Singular Spaces, running concurrently.
