Introductory Workshop: Hamiltonian systems, from topology to applications through analysis
Organizers: MarieClaude Arnaud (Université d'Avignon), Wilfrid Gangbo (University of California, Los Angeles), LEAD Vadim Kaloshin (University of Maryland), Robert Littlejohn (University of California, Berkeley)The introductory workshop will cover the large variety of topics of the semester: weak KAM theory, Mather theory, HamiltonJacobi equations, integrable systems and integrable planar billiards, instability formation for nearly integrable systems, celestial mechanics, billiards, spectral rigidity, Astrodynamics, motion of satellites, Plasma Physics, Accelerator Physics, Theoretical Chemistry, and Atomic Physics.
The workshop will consist of approximately 18 lectures to introduce the main topics relevant to the semester. That will leave time for discussions and exchange between the participants.Updated on Sep 26, 2017 09:18 AM PDT 
Hamiltonian systems, from topology to applications through analysis I
Organizers: Alessandra Celletti (University of Rome Tor Vergata), Rafael de la Llave (Georgia Institute of Technology), Diego DelCastilloNegrete (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Lawrence Evans (University of California, Berkeley), LEAD Philip Morrison (University of Texas at Austin), Sergei Tabachnikov (Pennsylvania State University), Amie Wilkinson (University of Chicago)This is a main workshop of the program “Hamiltonian systems, from topology to applications through analysis” and is a companion to the workshop next month (November 2630). Both workshops will feature current developments pertaining to finite and infinitedimensional Hamiltonian systems, with a mix of rigorous theory and applications. A broad range of topics will be included, e.g., existence of and transport about invariant sets (Arnold diffusion, KAM, etc.), techniques for projection/reduction of infinite to finite systems, and the role of topological invariants in applications.

Introductory Workshop: Derived Algebraic Geometry and Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces
Organizers: Julie Bergner (University of Virginia), Bhargav Bhatt (University of Michigan), Christopher Hacon (University of Utah), LEAD Mircea Mustaţă (University of Michigan), Gabriele Vezzosi (Università di Firenze)The workshop will survey several areas of algebraic geometry, providing an introduction to the two main programs hosted by MSRI in Spring 2019. It will consist of 7 expository minicourses and 7 separate lectures, each given by top experts in the field.
The focus of the workshop will be the recent progress in derived algebraic geometry, birational geometry and moduli spaces. The lectures will be aimed at a wide audience including advanced graduate students and postdocs with a background in algebraic geometry.Updated on Aug 28, 2017 09:13 AM PDT 
Derived algebraic geometry and its applications
Organizers: Dennis Gaitsgory (Harvard University), David Nadler (University of California, Berkeley), LEAD Nikita Rozenblyum (University of Chicago), Peter Scholze (Universität Bonn), Brooke Shipley (University of Illinois at Chicago), Bertrand Toen (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS))This workshop will bring together researchers at various frontiers, including arithmetic geometry, representation theory, mathematical physics, and homotopy theory, where derived algebraic geometry has had recent impact. The aim will be to explain the ideas and tools behind recent progress and to advertise appealing questions. A focus will be on moduli spaces, for example of principal bundles with decorations as arise in many settings, and their natural structures.

Introductory Workshop: Holomorphic Differentials in Mathematics and Physics
Organizers: LEAD Jayadev Athreya (University of Washington), Sergei Gukov (California Institute of Technology), Andrew Neitzke (University of Texas), Anna Wienhard (RuprechtKarlsUniversität Heidelberg)Holomorphic differentials on Riemann surfaces have long held a distinguished place in low dimensional geometry, dynamics and representation theory. 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 this introductory workshop, we will bring junior and senior researchers from this diverse range of subjects together in order to explore common themes and unexpected connections.

Introductory Workshop: Microlocal Analysis
Organizers: Pierre Albin (University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign), LEAD Raluca Felea (Rochester Institute of Technology), Andras Vasy (Stanford University)Microlocal analysis provides tools for the precise analysis of problems arising in areas such as partial differential equations or integral geometry by working in the phase space, i.e. the cotangent bundle, of the underlying manifold. It has origins in areas such as quantum mechanics and hyperbolic equations, in addition to the development of a general PDE theory, and has expanded tremendously over the last 40 years to the analysis of singular spaces, integral geometry, nonlinear equations, scattering theory… This workshop will provide a comprehensive introduction to the field for postdocs and graduate students as well as specialists outside the field, building up from standard facts about the Fourier transform, distributions and basic functional analysis.
