Graduate Workshop: New Trends in Mathematical Fluid Dynamics: March 28 – April 1, 2022

Organized by: Theodore D. Drivas (Stony Brook University), Sam Punshon-Smith (Tulane), Francisco Torres de Lizaur (university of Toronto) The purpose of this course is to introduce graduate students to state-of-the-art methods, results, and open problems in mathematical fluid dynamics. We will discuss the mathematical foundations and modern analysis aspects of the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations. […]

Workshop: SuperGeometry and SuperModuli: March 27-31, 2023

Organizing by: Sergio Cacciatori (Università degli studi dell’Insubria),Samuel Grushevsky (SCGP),Alexander Polishchuk (University of Oregon) A supermanifold is the generalization of a usual manifold when some of the coordinates are even variables, and some are odd.The mathematical foundations of supergeometry were established in the 1970s and 1980s. While much of the motivation for this came from […]

Workshop: Number Theory And Physics: October 24 – October 28, 2022

Organized by: Brian Conrey (American Institute of Mathematics), Matilde Lalin (Université de Montréal), Giuseppe Mussardo (Laboratorio Interdisciplinare Scienze Naturali e Umanistiche, SISSA), German Sierra (UAM/CSIC) The interplay between Number Theory and Physics has a long tradition, as illustrated by several examples and many initiatives of the past. A well-know example is the tantalizing connection between […]

Workshop: Hyperkahler quotients, singularities, and quivers: January 30 – February 3, 2023.

Organized by: Ljudmila Kamenova (Stony Brook University), Giovanni Mongardi (University of Bologna), Alexei Oblomkov (UMass Amherst) Hyperkahler manifolds are higher-dimensional generalizations of K3 surfaces, and as such they are a perfect testing ground for central conjectures in algebraic geometry, like the Hodge conjecture, the Tate conjecture, Grothendieck’s standard conjectures, Bloch-Beilinson conjectures, etc. Exciting new insight […]

Combinatorics and Geometry of Convex Polyhedra: March 20-24, 2023

Organized by: Karim Adiprasito, University of Copenhagen and Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Alexey Glazyrin, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Isabella Novik, University of Washington, Igor Pak, UCLA. Convex polyhedra are fundamental structures in geometry playing an intermediate role between the continuous (smooth) and discrete (combinatorial) worlds. Over the past century, much progress has been […]
