Announcement of Thematic program on

L2-INVARIANTS AND THEIR ANALOGUES IN POSITIVE CHARACTERISTIC
February 19 — June 15, 2018
Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT), Madrid

This thematic program will be devoted to recent developments on the theory of L2-invariants. This program simultaneously seeks to train a new generation of researchers and to give the leading researchers an opportunity to work together in an exciting research environment.

The program main activities will be:

  • 2 weeks of introductory mini-courses (February 26 – March 9)
  • Several week-long advanced courses (see the webpage for courses scheduled so far)
  • Regular seminars
  • A closing workshop (June 4 – June 8)

Curso de doctorado de Antonio Viruel en Leioa (Bizkaia)

Antonio ViruelEstimados compañeros de la Red Ibérica en Teoría de grupos,

os reenvío la información de abajo de parte de Gustavo Fernández Alcober,

un saludo,
Conchita

CURSO DE DOCTORADO “ACCIONES DE GRUPOS SOBRE VARIEDADES”. 14-17  NOVIEMBRE, UNIVERSIDAD DEL PAÍS VASCO.

PROFESOR: Antonio Viruel (Universidad de Málaga)

RESUMEN: Este curso pretende ser una primera introducción a las  técnicas de los llamados grupos de transformaciones. Veremos cómo la  geometría y la teoría de grupos se complementan cuando consideramos  grupos actuando sobre variedades, de modo que si un grupo G actúa de  manera efectiva sobre una variedad M, las propiedades geométricas de M  pueden leerse en G del mismo modo que las propiedades algebraicas de G  pueden leerse en M. Ejemplos de estas situaciones son la conjetura del  rango y las acciones libres sobre productos de esferas, o las  conjeturas de estructura sobre los grupos de difeomorfismos de una  variedad.

LUGAR: Seminario de Matemáticas. Facultad de Ciencia y Tecnología.  Leioa (Bizkaia)

HORARIO: Lunes, 14 de noviembre: 11:30-13:30
Martes, 15: 14:00-16:00
Miércoles, 16: 11:30-13:30

Curso «Representaciones del grupo simétrico» en Valencia 19-21 octubre

Oct ’15Oct
1921

Eugenio GiannelliEstimados compañeros:

Los próximos días 19-21 de octubre, Eugenio Giannelli (T.U. Kaiserlslautern) impartirá un curso en la Universitat de València sobre Teoría de Representaciones del Grupo Simétrico. La duración aproximada del curso será de 4 horas y media.

Resumen:

The aim of this short course is to define and characterize the simple modules for
the symmetric groups in both the ordinary and the modular setting. This will be
done via the classical combinatorial approach, used by Gordon James. The main
reference for these lectures is the book “The Representation Theory of Symmetric
Groups” by Gordon James.

Los interesados en asistir al curso pueden ponerse en contacto con Joan Tent (joan.tent@uv.es) o Carolina Vallejo (carolina.vallejo@uv.es) para cualquier información al respecto.

Un saludo,

Joan Tent

Institute, Vienna, Austria, organized by Miklos Abert, Goulnara
Arzhantseva, Damien Gaboriau, Thomas Schick and Andreas Thom.

The school is a part of the thematic program ‘Measured group theory’
held at ESI January 18 — March 18, 2016. See
www.uni-math.gwdg.de/schick/ESI16/esi16_1.html  for details. The
program for the school is:

Week 1 (Feb 1 – 5):

  • Gabor Elek: Sofic groups
  • Yair Glasner: Spaces of subgroups and IRS
  • Andrei Jaikin-Zapirain: An algebraic proof of the strong Atiyah conjecture for free groups
  • Jesse Peterson: Character rigidity
  • Brandon Seward: Sofic and Rokhlin entropy

Week 2 (Feb 8 – 12):

  • Tsachik Gelander: Asymptotic invariants of lattices in Lie groups
  • Francois le Maitre: Full groups, topological rank and cost
  • Narutaka Ozawa: Noncommutative real algebraic geometry: Kazhdan’s property (T) and Connes’s embedding conjecture
  • Todor Tsankov: Automorphism groups and their actions
  • Robin Tucker-Drob: Borel and measured equivalence relations and trees

If you have any questions about the program, contact one of the
organizers.

Applications to the school should be sent to creinha@uni-math.gwdg.de.
If you are a young researcher, also ask a senior researcher (typically
your advisor) to send a short reference email to the same address. The
selected participants will be provided some financial support to cover
their local expenses. In exceptional cases, some financial support for
travel will also be provided.

The application email should contain the following information,
preferably following the format below:

  • Your name:
  •  Email:
  • Affiliation:
  • Research topic:
  • Your advisor’s name (if you are a student):
  • Weeks of the school you are applying to:
