RSCAAG: Algebra, Combinatorics and Geometry of Monomials August 5th, 2017

The Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences (IASBS) and the Institute for research in fundamental sciences (IPM) are organizing the First Research School on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry (RSCAAG) on the topic “Algebra, Combinatorics and Geometry of Monomials” from 5 to 17 August 2017 in Zanjan, Iran.

The aim of the school is to introduce research topics in the main streams of Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra to young researchers and PhD students, and encourage them to collaborate in teams leaded by well-known mathematicians. To reach this aim, an educational-research school will be organized for a period of 2 weeks in IASBS. After some intensive courses on special topics, participants will be divided into groups and start work and research on some proposed related problems. These collaborations will be continued after the schools.

The topic of monomial ideals and algebras, as a subject of Commutative Algebra, Homological Algebra, Combinatorics and Geometry will be investigated from several points of view. The common point will be reaching to understand the behavior of monomials when the corresponding ideal or algebra has special properties.

Scientific Committee:

  • Eric Babson (University of California at Davis, USA)
  • Jürgen Herzog (University of Essen, Germany)
  • Abbas Nasrollah Nejad (IASBS, Zanjan, Iran)
  • Volkmar Welker (Philips-University Marburg, Germany)

  • Dedekind, Prüfer, Krull, and Mori rings and their generalizations,
  • Rings of integer-valued polynomials,
  • Topological aspects in rings theory,
  • Factorization theory in rings and semigroups,
  • Direct-sum decomposition of modules.

The Homological Conjectures: Resolved! (MSRI) March 12th, 2018

A workshop on the Homological Conjectures will be at MSRI,  March 12, 2018 – March 16, 2018.

The homological conjectures in commutative algebra are a network of conjectures that have generated a tremendous amount of activity in the last 50 years. They had largely been resolved for commutative rings that contain a field, but, with the exception of some low dimensional cases, several remained open in mixed characteristic — until recently, when Yves Andr\’e announced a proof of Hochster’s Direct Summand Conjecture. The progress comes from systematically applying Scholze’s theory of perfectoid spaces, which had already shown its value by solving formidable problems in number theory and representation theory. One of the goals of the workshop is to cover the ingredients going into the proofs of the Direct Summand Conjecture.
