RTG/SCGP Graduate Workshop on the Birational Complexity of Algebraic Varieties: December 5-9, 2022

This instructional workshop, aimed at graduate students familiar with basic algebraic geometry, will introduce attendees to rationality problems, measures of irrationality, and groups of birational automorphisms such as the Cremona group. The SCGP will host a research workshop Birational Complexity of Algebraic Varieties the following week (December 12-16, 2022, SCGP). The Graduate workshop will revolve […]

Birational Complexity of Algebraic Varieties: December 12-16, 2022

Organized by: Ignacio Barros (Université Paris-Saclay)Robert Lazarsfeld (Stony Brook University)Olivier Martin (Stony Brook University) David Stapleton (University of Michigan) Susanna Zimmermann (Université d’Angers) How complicated can an algebraic variety be? From the perspective of birational geometry the simplest varieties are rational or unirational. Determining whether or not a variety is rational is a famously hard problem of […]

Computational Differential Geometry and its Applications in Physics: November 14-18, 2022

Rodrigo Barbosa (SCGP)Simon Donaldson (SCGP)Michael R. Douglas (CMSA and SCGP)Burt Ovrut (U Penn) The workshop “Computational Differential Geometry and its Applications in Physics” grows out of recent work using machine learning techniques to solve geometric PDEs such as those determining Ricci-flat Kähler metrics in four and higher dimensions. The mathematical focus will be on computational methods for […]

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 […]
