MRC 2015, Snowbird UT June 7th, 2015

The AMS will hold a “Mathematics Research Community” (MRC) on Commutative Algebra in Snowbird, Utah, from June 7 to 13, 2015.

MRCs are designed “to develop and sustain long-lasting cohorts for collaborative research projects in many areas of mathematics. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to participate. The AMS will provide a structured program to engage and guide all participants as they start their careers.”

The organizers for this MRC are

  • Srikanth B. Iyengar, University of Utah
  • Karl Schwede, University of Utah
  • Liana Sega, University of Missouri—Kansas City
  • Gregory G. Smith, Queen’s University
  • Wenliang Zhang, University of Nebraska

The workshop will focus on the following topics:

  1. Singularities in positive characteristic
  2. Local cohomology and D-modules
  3. Methods from homotopy theory
  4. Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity
  5. Infinite free resolutions

For more information, including application procedures, see the AMS web page for the MRC.

Summer Research Institute 2015, Salt Lake City July 13th, 2015

The forty-fifth Summer Research Institute, sponsored by the American Mathematical Society and organized in collaboration with the Clay Mathematics Institute, will be devoted to algebraic geometry and will be held at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, July 13-31, 2015.

The goal of the three-week institute is to review major achievements in and around algebraic geometry in the past decade, and bring the attendants to the forefront of the relevant subjects. The three weeks will be roughly focused respectively on

  1. analytic methods, birational geometry and classification, commutative algebra and computational geometry, Hodge theory, singularities, and characteristic p methods.
  2. derived algebraic geometry, derived categories, geometric representation theory, Gromov-Witten and Donaldson-Thomas theories, mirror symmetry, tropical geometry.
  3. p-adic Hodge theory, rational points and Diophantine problems, arithmetic fundamental groups, topology of algebraic varieties, cycles, and cohomology theories.

The institute will be generally modeled on the 2005 Summer Research Institute held at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, with plenary lecture series in the mornings, and parallel seminar series in the afternoons.

For more information about the Summer Institute, including the list of speakers and information about registration, please go to the institute webpage.

Registration deadline: January 15, 2015.
