    The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers whose work contributes to the study of random structures that exhibit some form of conformal self-similarity. Notable examples include the Schramm-Loewner evolution SLE, the Brownian map and random trees, Liouville Quantum Gravity, and Conformal Field Theory. A particular focus will be the discussion of analytic tools needed to address the challenges arising from the often rough underlying sets and spaces.

    This workshop will explore connections between the regularity theory of minimal surfaces and of mean curvature flow. Recent breakthroughs have improved our understanding of singularity formation in both settings but the current research trends are becoming increasingly disparate. Experts from both areas will present their research and there will be ample free time to establish connections between the topics.

  5. Workshop [Hybrid Workshop] Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2022: Initiating, Sustaining, and Researching Mathematics Department Transformation of Introductory Courses for STEM Majors

    Organizers: Naneh Apkarian (Arizona State University), David Bressoud (Macalester College), Pamela Burdman (Just Equations), Jamylle Carter (Diablo Valley college), Ted Coe (Northwest Evaluation Association), Courtney Ginsberg (Math for America), Estrella Johnson (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University), W Gary Martin (Auburn University), Michael O'Sullivan (San Diego State University), LEAD Chris Rasmussen (San Diego State University), Daniel Reinholz (San Diego State University), Wendy Smith (University of Nebraska), David Webb (University of Colorado at Boulder)

    The world is changing, along with perceptions. Many call for the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning, for both citizenry and STEM preparation. To achieve sustainable change, though, the focus needs to extend from individuals to systems. It is not enough to change one classroom or one course. Transformation requires change at all levels: in teaching, programmatic practices, and institutions. This workshop will bring together teachers and researchers from universities, community colleges, and K-12 schools to explore the reasons for and processes by which change in university mathematics departments is initiated, promoted, and sustained and lessons learned from change efforts in K-12. It will review what we know about change at all levels and reflect on stories of failure and success.

    Despite the remarkable success in extracting information from complex and (often) large-scale datasets over the last two decades, further progress is needed to making automated statistical and machine learning algorithms more reliable, robust, interpretable and trustworthy. This workshop has its focus on foundational aspects of this goal, linking areas at the interface between statistics, optimization, machine learning and computer science, such as distributional robustness and stability, adversarial and transfer learning, generalizability and meta analysis, and causality.

    This program is devoted to the investigation of universal analytic and geometric objects that arise from natural probabilistic constructions, often motivated by models in mathematical physics. Prominent examples for recent developments are the Schramm-Loewner evolution, the continuum random tree, Bernoulli percolation on the integers,  random surfaces produced by Liouville Quantum Gravity, and Jordan curves and dendrites obtained from random conformal weldings and laminations. The lack of regularity of these random structures often results in a failure of classical methods of analysis. One goal of this program is to enrich the analytic toolbox to better handle these rough structures.

    Holomorphic dynamics is a vibrant field of mathematics that has seen profound progress over the past 40 years. It has numerous interconnections to other fields of mathematics and beyond. 

    Our semester will focus on three selected classes of dynamical systems: rational maps (postcritically finite and beyond); transcendental maps; and maps in several complex variables. We will put particular emphasis on the interactions between each these, and on connections with adjacent areas of mathematics.

  43. Workshop Chern-Simons and Other Topological Field Theories

    Organizers: Stephon Alexander (Brown University), Fiona Burnell (University of Minnesota), David Eisenbud (MSRI - Mathematical Sciences Research Institute), Dan Freed (University of Texas, Austin), Joel Moore (University of California, Berkeley), John Morgan (Columbia University)

    The introduction of the Chern-Simons differential form in 1972 catalyzed a remarkable series of developments across mathematics and physics, continuing to the present day.

    The classical Chern-Simons invariant provides an obstruction to immersing a 3-manifold conformally into Euclidean 4-space, while the quantum Chern-Simons invariants in topological field theories gave rise to many new developments in knot theory.  In physics, the Chern-Simons action for gauge fields is widely discussed as an alternative or supplement to conventional Maxwell and Einstein theories. Topological field theories encode the fractional statistics of emergent anyon particles in condensed matter.

    This workshop will cover the current state of the manifold areas in mathematics and physics in which Chern-Simons and other topological field theories have had a dramatic impact, as well as their appearance in new areas ranging from integrability to number theory.

    Shiing-Shen Chern, the founding Director of MSRI was born on October 28, 1911 in Jiaxing, China. We join the Chern Institute of Mathematics at Nankai University and the Yau Mathematical Sciences Center at Tsinghua University in celebrating Professor Chern's 110th Birthday, following Chinese tradition.

    The past decade has seen tremendous progress in understanding the behavior of large random matrices and interacting particle systems. Complementary methods have emerged to prove universality of these behaviors, as well as to probe their precise nature using integrable, or exactly solvable models. This program seeks to reinforce and expand the fruitful interaction at the interface of these areas, as well as to showcase some of the important developments and applications of the past decade.

    Proofs are at the foundations of mathematics. Viewed through the lens of theoretical computer science, verifying the correctness of a mathematical proof is a fundamental computational task. Indeed, the P versus NP problem, which deals precisely with the complexity of proof verification, is one of the most important open problems in all of mathematics.

    The complexity-theoretic study of proof verification has led to exciting reenvisionings of mathematical proofs. For example, probabilistically checkable proofs (PCPs) admit local-to-global structure that allows verifying a proof by reading only a minuscule portion of it. As another example, interactive proofs allow for verification via a conversation between a prover and a verifier, instead of the traditional static sequence of logical statements. The study of such proof systems has drawn upon deep mathematical tools to derive numerous applications to the theory of computation and beyond.

    In recent years, such probabilistic proofs received much attention due to a new motivation, delegation of computation, which is the emphasis of this summer school. This paradigm admits ultra-fast protocols that allow one party to check the correctness of the computation performed by another, untrusted, party. These protocols have even been realized within recently-deployed technology, for example, as part of cryptographic constructions known as succinct non-interactive arguments of knowledge (SNARKs).

    This summer school will provide an introduction to the field of probabilistic proofs and the beautiful mathematics behind it, as well as prepare students for conducting cutting-edge research in this area.

    Figure 1. A rotationally symmetric solution to the self-duality equations on an open and dense subset of the torus. Singularities appear where the surface intersects the ideal boundary at infinity of the hyperbolic 3-space visualized by the wireframe.

    Gauge theory is a geometric language used to formulate many fundamental physical phenomena, which has also had profound impact on our understanding of topology. The main idea is to study the space of solutions to partial differential equations admitting a very large group of local symmetries. Starting in the late 1970s, mathematicians began to unravel surprising connections between gauge theory and many aspects of geometric analysis, algebraic geometry and low-dimensional topology. This influence of gauge theory in geometry and topology is pervasive nowadays, and new developments continue to emerge.

    The goal of the summer school is to introduce students to the foundational aspects of gauge theory, and explore their relations to geometric analysis and low-dimensional topology. By the end of the two-week program, the students will understand the relevant analytic and geometric aspects of several partial differential equations of current interest (including the Yang-Mills ASD equations, the Seiberg-Witten equations, and the Hitchin equations) and some of their most impactful applications to problems in geometry and topology.

  138. African Diaspora Joint Mathematics 2021 African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop

    The African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT) will take place at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, CA from June 21 to July 2, 2021.

    ADJOINT is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the mathematical sciences who are interested in conducting research in a collegial environment.  

    The main objective of ADJOINT is to provide opportunities for in-person research collaboration to U.S. mathematicians, especially those from the African Diaspora, who will work in small groups with research leaders on various research projects. 

    Through this effort, MSRI aims to establish and promote research communities that will foster and strengthen research productivity and career development among its participants. The ADJOINT workshops are designed to catalyze research collaborations, provide support for conferences to increase the visibility of the researchers, and to develop a sense of community among the mathematicians who attend. 

    The end goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences and its community by positively affecting the research and careers of African-American mathematicians and supporting their efforts to achieve full access and engagement in the broader research community. 

    Each summer, three to five research leaders will each propose a research topic to be studied during a two-week workshop.

    During the workshop, each participant will: 

    • conduct research at MSRI within a group of four to five mathematicians under the direction of one of the research leaders 
    • participate in professional enhancement activities provided by the onsite ADJOINT Director 
    • receive funding for two weeks of lodging, meals and incidentals, and one round-trip travel to Berkeley, CA 

    After the two-week workshop, each participant will:

    • have the opportunity to further their research project with the team members including the research leader 
    • have access to funding to attend conference(s) or to meet with other team members to pursue the research project, or to present results 
    • become part of a network of research and career mentors

    The overarching goal of the Workshop on Mathematics and Racial Justice is to explore the role that mathematics plays in today’s movement for racial justice. For the purposes of this workshop, racial justice is the result of intentional, active and sustained anti-racist practices that identify and dismantle racist structures and policies that operate to oppress, disenfranchise, harm, and devalue Black people. This workshop will bring together mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, and STEM educators as well as members of the general public interested in using the tools of these disciplines to critically examine and eradicate racial disparities in society. Researchers with expertise or interest in problems at the intersection of mathematics, statistics and racial justice are encouraged to participate. This workshop will take place over two weeks and will include sessions on Bias in Algorithms and Technology; Fair Division, Allocation, and Representation; Public Health Disparities; and Racial Inequities in Mathematics Education.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Summer Research in Mathematics program was postponed to 2021 and held remotely.

    MSRI's Summer Research in Mathematics program provides space, funding, and the opportunity for in-person collaboration to small groups of mathematicians, especially women and gender-expansive individuals, whose ongoing research may have been disproportionately affected by various obstacles including family obligations, professional isolation, or access to funding. Through this effort, MSRI aims to mitigate the obstacles faced by these small groups, improve the odds of research project completion, and deepen their research experience.

    The ultimate goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences as a whole by positively affecting the research and careers of all of its participants and assisting their efforts to maintain involvement in the research community.

    The theory of Diophantine equations is understood today as the study of algebraic points in algebraic varieties, and it is often the case that algebraic points of arithmetic relevance are expected to be sparse.

    This summer school will introduce the participants to two of the main techniques in the subject: (i) the filtration method to prove algebraic degeneracy of integral points by means of the subspace theorem, leading to special cases of conjectures by Bombieri, Lang, and Vojta, and (ii) unlikely intersections through o-minimality and bi-algebraic geometry, leading to results in the context of the Manin-Mumford conjecture, the André-Oort conjecture, and generalizations. This SGS should provide an entry point to a very active research area in modern number theory.

    The courses in this summer school focus on mathematical models of group dynamics, how to describe their dynamics and their scaling limits, and the connection to discrete and continuous optimization problems.

    The phrase "group dynamics" is used loosely here -- it may refer to species migration, the spread of a virus, or the propagation of electrons through an inhomogeneous medium, to name a few examples. Very commonly, such systems can be described via stochastic processes which approximately behave like the solution of an appropriate partial differential equation in the large-population limit.

    Organizers: Suresh Eswarathasan (Dalhousie University), Dmitry Jakobson (McGill University), Katya Krupchyk (University of California, Irvine), Stephane Nonnenmacher (Université de Paris XI)

    Microlocal analysis originated in the study of linear partial differential equations (PDEs) in the high-frequency regime, through a combination of ideas from Fourier analysis and classical Hamiltonian mechanics. In parallel, similar ideas and methods had been developed since the early times of quantum mechanics, the smallness of Planck’s constant allowing to use semiclassical methods. The junction between these two points of view (microlocal and semiclassical) only emerged in 1970s, and has taken its full place in the PDE community in the last 20 years. This methodology resulted in major advances in the understanding of linear and nonlinear PDEs in the last 50 years. Moreover, microlocal methods continue to find new applications in diverse areas of mathematical analysis, such as the spectral theory of nonselfadjoint operators, scattering theory, and inverse problems.

    NOTE: The introductory sessions for this workshop will be held online the morning of April 29th.  Additional sessions will be held when it is once again possible to meet in person.  Times listed on schedule is in Pacfic Standard Time.

    The world is changing, along with perceptions. Many call for the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning, for both citizenry and STEM preparation. To achieve sustainable change, though, the focus needs to extend from individuals to systems. It is not enough to change one classroom or one course. Transformation requires change at all levels: in teaching, programmatic practices, and institutions. This workshop will bring together teachers and researchers from universities, community colleges, and K-12 schools to explore the reasons for and processes by which change in university mathematics departments is initiated, promoted, and sustained and lessons learned from change efforts in K-12. It will review what we know about change at all levels and reflect on stories of failure and success.

  148. Seminar ADJOINT Research Seminar: Validated Computation of Special Mathematical Functions

    The advent of reliable computing machines, computer algebra systems, and multiple precision computational packages diminished the need for tables of reference values for computing function values by interpolation, but today's numerical analysts, scientific researchers, and software developers still need a way to confirm the accuracy of numerical algorithms that compute mathematical function values. The field of validated computation of mathematical functions explores the development of multiple precision codes that compute certifiably accurate function values that can be used to test the accuracy of function data from personal, commercial, or publicly available codes. We discuss the analysis used to obtain reliable error bounds for floating point approximations and describe the implementation of the work in a publicly available beta site.

    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    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 well-known Euler equations for inviscid fluids, and the Navier-Stokes 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.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this summer school will be held online.

    The purpose of this two weeks school is to introduce graduate students to the state of the art methods and results in the study of incompressible Euler’s equations in general, and water waves in particular. This is a research area which is highly relevant to many real life problems, and in which substantial progress has been made in the last decade.

     

    The goal is to present the main current research directions in water waves. We will begin with the physical derivation of the equations, and present some of the analytic tools needed in study. The final goal will be two-fold, namely (i) to understand the local solvability of the Cauchy problem for water waves, as well as (ii) to describe the long time behavior of solutions.

    Through the lectures and associated problem sessions, students will learn about a number of new analysis tools which are not routinely taught in a graduate school curriculum. The goal is to help students acquire the knowledge needed in order to start research in water waves and Euler equations.

    Organizers: Gérard Ben Arous (New York University, Courant Institute), LEAD Alexander Fribergh (University of Montreal), Lea Popovic (Concordia University)
    Image

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this summer school will be held online.

    Probability theory, statistics as well as mathematical physics have increasingly been used in computer science. The goal of this school is to provide a unique opportunity for graduate students and young researchers to developed multi-disciplinary skills in a rapidly evolving area of mathematics.

    The topics would include spin glasses, constraint satisfiability, randomized algorithms, Monte-Carlo Markov chains and high-dimensional statistics, sparse and random graphs, computational complexity, estimation and approximation algorithms. Those topics will fall into two main categories, on the one hand problems related to spin glasses and on the other hand random algorithms.

    The part of the summer school dedicated to spin glasses will be split into three parts: an introductory course about traditional spin glasses followed by two more advanced courses where spin glasses meet computer science in addition to a talk on dynamics of spin glasses. The part of the summer school on random algorithms will consist of an introductory course on phase transitions in large random structures, followed by advanced courses on theoretical bounds for computational complexity in reconstruction and inference, and on understanding rare events in random graphs and models of statistical mechanics.

    The two introductory courses on spin glasses and on random algorithms will be accompanied by three exercises sessions of one hour. A one hour exercises session will follow each of the three sessions of a course for both the introductory course on spin glasses and the introductory course on random algorithms. Exercises sessions will be led by an assistant, but will primarily focus on participation of the students.

  193. African Diaspora Joint Mathematics 2020 African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop

    The African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT) will take place at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, CA from June 15 to June 26, 2020.

    ADJOINT is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the mathematical sciences who are interested in conducting research in a collegial environment.  

    The main objective of ADJOINT is to provide opportunities for in-person research collaboration to U.S. mathematicians, especially those from the African Diaspora, who will work in small groups with research leaders on various research projects. 

    Through this effort, MSRI aims to establish and promote research communities that will foster and strengthen research productivity and career development among its participants. The ADJOINT workshops are designed to catalyze research collaborations, provide support for conferences to increase the visibility of the researchers, and to develop a sense of community among the mathematicians who attend. 

    The end goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences and its community by positively affecting the research and careers of African-American mathematicians and supporting their efforts to achieve full access and engagement in the broader research community. 

    During the workshop, each participant will: 

    • conduct research at MSRI within a group of four to five mathematicians under the direction of one of the research leaders 
    • participate in professional enhancement activities provided by the onsite ADJOINT Director 
    • receive funding for two weeks of lodging, meals and incidentals, and one round-trip travel to Berkeley, CA 

    After the two-week workshop, each participant will:

    • have the opportunity to further their research project with the team members including the research leader 
    • have access to funding to attend conference(s) or to meet with other team members to pursue the research project, or to present results 
    • become part of a network of research and career mentors

  195. Summer Research in Mathematics 2020 Summer Research in Mathematics

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Summer Reseach in Mathematics program was postponed to 2021.

    MSRI's Summer Research in Mathematics program provides space, funding, and the opportunity for in-person collaboration to small groups of mathematicians, especially women and gender-expansive individuals, whose ongoing research may have been disproportionately affected by various obstacles including family obligations, professional isolation, or access to funding. Through this effort, MSRI aims to mitigate the obstacles faced by these groups, improve the odds of research project completion, and deepen their research experience.

    The ultimate goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences as a whole by positively affecting the research and careers of all of its participants and assisting their efforts to maintain involvement in the research community.

  197. Seminar Fellowship of the Ring, National Seminar: Commutative Algebra with S_n-invariant monomial ideals

    To attend this seminar, you must register in advance, by clicking HERE.

    Consider a polynomial ring in n variables, together with the action of the symmetric group by coordinate permutations. In my talk I will describe many familiar notions in Commutative Algebra in the context of monomial ideals that are preserved by the action of the symmetric group. These include Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity, projective dimension, saturation, symbolic powers, or the Cohen-Macaulay property. My goal is to explain how changing focus from minimal resolutions to Ext modules can lead to a simplified picture of the homological algebra, and to provide concrete combinatorial recipes to determine the relevant homological invariants.

    The link to this online workshop is: https://msri.zoom.us/j/999860976

    This workshop will focus on recent developments in factorization homology, parametrized homotopy theory, and algebraic K-theory.  These seemingly disparate topics are unified by a common methodology, which leverages universal properties and unforeseen descent by way of higher category theory. Furthermore, they enjoy powerful and complementary roles in application to the cyclotomic trace.  This workshop will be a venue for experts in these areas to present new results, make substantive connections across fields, and suggest and contextualize outstanding questions and problems.  It will consist of 4 two-part lecture series and 10 one-hour talks. The lecture series will be given by Thomas Nikolaus, Akhil Mathew, David Ben-Zvi and a split Martina Rovelli and Viktoriya Ozornova.
