ERCOM - European Research Centres on Mathematics

Upcoming conferences organized by ERCOM member institutes

Conference: Mathematical Concepts in the Sciences and HumanitiesThis conference is dedicated to Jürgen Jost on the occasion of his 65th birthday. His influential work ranges from countless scientific contributions to the creation of a culture of interdisciplinary thinking in which concepts and abstract mathematical structures are identified as the core instrument for integrating knowledge across scientific disciplines. Over the years, Jürgen Jost has shaped a new kind of interdisciplinary science, with mathematics at its heart, and deeply influenced future generations of scientists. The conference brings together experts working with mathematical concepts in a broad spectrum of fields, comprising contributions from friends, former students and colleagues. It is our deepest regret to announce that the conference will be in-person for speakers and invited guests only, due to the current corona regulations. Despite this situation, it is our greatest wish to share this celebration of excellence with a broad audience and offer online registration to join us via video broadcast.

This workshop is dedicated to interactions between nonlinear algebra and the study of differential equations, with a particular focus on computations and applications. Topics include linear PDE with constant coefficients, algebraic dynamical systems, D-modules, control theory, and the Ritt-Kolchin theory of differential polynomials. Due to current Corona regulations, on-site participation is limited to 40 participants. The event will be streamed, too. As we have reached the maximum number of on-site participants, registration is possible for online attendance only.
Workshop on Derived Geometry
Workshop: Special Riemannian Metrics and Curvature FunctionalsThis workshop gathers researchers in the areas of Differential and Riemannian Geometry and Geometric Analysis. The main focus is on the studies of special Riemannian metrics on smooth manifolds (such as Einstein, Yamabe and Bach flat metrics), variational aspects of curvature functionals (such as Yang-Mills and quadratic functionals) and canonical embeddings (such as minimal and Willmore hypersurfaces). Apart from research talks, the workshop will have two mini-courses by: Sun-Yung Alice Chang (Princeton University) and Claude LeBrun (Stony Brook University).

In pure mathematics, usually questions can be reduced to solving systems of equations. Systems of equations of the form f1=…=fN=0 in real variables can be reduced to solving global optimization of a single function g=f12+…+fN2. The latter more generally covers also the least square fit problem in statistics theory. The relation between optimization and systems of equations go both ways. If one has a good method to solve systems of equations then one can find zeros of the gradient of the function g, which are candidates for being (local) optima of g. There are very powerful symbolic tools to solve systems of equations in case the functions involved are polynomials, such as Groebner Basis. However they can be very slow for interesting cases one needs to solve in practice (in particularly, for real life applications such as robotics, where decisions must be made in a matter of seconds). Hence, numerical methods are usually employed, such as the Bertini software or iterative optimization methods. Also, there are cases where the concerned functions are not polynomial, such as meromorphic functions which are of interest in number theory. When using iterative optimization methods, one needs to assure that the method behaves well. This usually boils down to two facts: i) showing that each cluster point of the sequence constructed by the method is a critical point of the function g, and ii) show that each limit point is not a saddle point. (Moreover, a very challenging question nowadays is to be able to converge to “good” local minima. This is the most one can get, given that even for very simple functions finding global minima is NP-hard.) The theory of dynamical systems can help to resolve the question ii) above. It turns out that one has to deal with some form of randomness in the associated dynamical systems. Dynamical systems are also known to have more direct relations to solving of systems of equations. For example, the well known Weil’s Riemann hypothesis, on solutions in finite fields, can be recasted in terms of counting the number of fixed points of the Frobenius map. For the Riemann hypothesis itself, there is an attractive approach which, among other things, attempts to mimic the proof of Weil’s Riemann hypothesis using foliations and new cohomology theories. This conference aims at being a forum where experts from the above various different fields can inform the audience about big insights and new developments, as well as have meaningful interactions with people from other fields. The conference hopes to foster cross collaboration between different fields whose ideas could be combined to solve major and useful questions.

Conference: StuKon 22 - die DMV StudierendenkonferenzDie DMV, die KoMa und das MPI für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften laden recht herzlich alle Studierenden und Absolvent*innen mathematischer Studiengänge (egal ob Bachelor, Master oder Lehramt) zur StuKon22, der DMV-Studierendenkonferenz, ein. Wie ursprünglich für 2020 vorgesehen, wird sie nun 2022 erstmals als eigenständige Veranstaltung durchgeführt, um so gezielt auf die Interessen und Bedürfnisse der Absolvent*innen eingehen zu können. Neben zwei eingeladenen Hauptvorträgen, Vorträgen der Absolventen und Diskussionsforen zum Austausch untereinander ist insbesondere der Programmpunkt "Jobchancen" vorgesehen, in dem Firmen und Einrichtungen, die gezielt Absolventen der Fachrichtungen Mathematik / Wirtschaftsmathematik / Technomathematik suchen, im Rahmen von Workshops Einblicke in ihre Arbeitswelt gewähren. Studierende, die ihre Abschlussarbeit auf der StuKon vorstellen wollen, registrieren sich bitte bis 15.06.2022. Im Anschluss wird eine Jury entscheiden, welche Vorträge angenommen werden. Reise- und Unterbringungskosten der ausgewählten Sprecher werden übernommen. Eine Teilnahme an der StuKon ist auch für Studierende möglich, die keine Abschlussarbeit vorstellen möchten. Auch hierfür ist jedoch eine Registrierung auf der Anmeldeseite nötig.

23.2.2022: Die Anmeldung zur StuKon 22 ist freigeschaltet. Anmeldeschluss für das Einreichen von Vorträgen ist der 15.06.2022

The goal of the school is to involve young researchers to the study of Hodge Theory in Algebraic Geometry. The lectures of the school will focus on the very last developments of Hodge theory together with their transversal applications to the study of algebraic varieties and their moduli spaces. In particular, the school will introduce the following aspects of Hodge theory: combinatorial Hodge theory, periods and motives, moduli spaces of Higgs bundles, and o-minimality.
