Workshop on Representation Theory and Analysis on Locally Symmetric Spaces

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 10:00 to Fri, 03/09/2018 - 12:00


March 5, 2018 - March 9, 2018


The workshop will focus on recent progress in the analytic theory of automorphic forms.
Topics include the trace formula with its relative, local and arithmetic variants, periods and the theta correspondence, and equidistribution.


The workshop is organized by Akshay Venkatesh (IAS/Stanford University), Erez Lapid (IAS/Weizmann Institute) and Yiannis Sakellardis (IAS/Rutgers)



Geometric and Modular Representation Theory

Tue, 09/01/2020 - 09:00 to Fri, 04/30/2021 - 09:00

During the 2020-2021 academic year, the School will have a special program on Geometric and Modular Representation Theory.  Geordie Williamson of the University of Sydney will be the Distinguished Visiting Professor.


Workshop on Motives, Galois Representations and Cohomology Around the Langlands Program

Mon, 11/06/2017 - 09:00 to Fri, 11/10/2017 - 12:30

The main theme  will be the relationship between cohomology of arithmetic groups, Galois representations, and motives, which arises out of the Langlands program.  The workshop will emphasize some directions that have seen recent progress, for example, new results and new features in the non-Hermitian case, or constructions of new Euler systems



The workshop is organized by Akshay Venkatesh (IAS/Stanford University), Frank Calegari (University of Chicago).



Special Year on Optimization, Statistics, and Theoretical Machine Learning

Sun, 09/01/2019 (All day) to Thu, 04/30/2020 (All day)

The special year will be led by Sanjeev Arora, who holds a dual appointment as Charles Fitzmorris Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University and Visiting Professor at the IAS, 2017-2020.

I am running a program in theoretical machine learning for the academic years 17-18, 18-19 and a special year in Theoretical Machine Learning in 2019-20 at the IAS.
