$A^1$ Homotopy Theory and Its Applications

Wed, 09/01/1999 (All day) to Fri, 06/30/2000 (All day)
(1999-2000)

$A^1$-homotopy theory is the homotopy theory for algebraic varieties and more generally for schemes which is based on the analogy between the affine line and the unit interval. During this year we will concentrate on two topics. One is the extension of the existing theory of triangulated motives from varieties over fields to general schemes. The main remaining problem there can be reformulated in terms of the $A^1$-homotopy theory as the problem of finding a good recognition principle for T-loop spaces.

Analytic Number Theory

Tue, 09/01/2009 (All day) to Wed, 06/30/2010 (All day)
(2009-2010)

During the academic year of 2009-2010, Enrico Bombieri of the School and Peter Sarnak of Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study will lead a program on analytic number theory.

 The program will have an emphasis on analytic aspects, and particular topics that will be covered include the distribution of prime numbers, sieves, L functions, special sequences as well as additive and combinatorial methods, exponential sums, spectral analysis and modular forms.

Stochastic PDE and Models of Turbulence

Sun, 09/01/2002 (All day) to Mon, 06/30/2003 (All day)
(2002-2003)

During the 2002-2003 academic year IAS will conduct a program in statistical models of turbulence. Weinan E and Gregory Falkovich will be in residence for the year, and in related areas, John Ball will also be at the Institute.

Although the problem of 3 dimensional turbulence has been extensively studied over the past century, our mathematical understanding of important issues such as regularity, intermittencey and coherent structures is still primitive.

Geometric Representation Theory

Tue, 09/01/1998 (All day) to Wed, 09/01/1999 (All day)
(1998-1999)

During the 1998-99 academic year, George Lusztig will be the School's Distinguished Visiting Professor and will lead a program in geometric methods in representation theory. We also expect that Hiraku Nakajima will be in residence for at least part of the year.
