Sphere Packing and the Conformal Bootstrap: December 14-18, 2020

Organized by Henry Cohn, Thomas Hartman, Dalimil Mazac, Leonardo Rastelli and Maryna Viazovska This workshop will assemble a group of mathematicians and physicists with diverse expertise to explore a new intriguing connection between discrete geometry and quantum field theory. This connection arises from a recent realization that certain powerful linear programming bounds on sphere packings […]

Floer homology in low-dimensional topology: January 11-15, 2021

Organized by: Matthew Hedden, Tom Mrowka, Olga Plamenevskaya, Jacob Rasmussen This workshop will explore topics of current interest in the theory of Floer homology for 3-manifolds. Floer homology is a powerful tool for studying the topology of 3- and 4-dimensional manifolds, and the relations between them. The first such invariants were introduced by Floer, and […]
