Algebraic Geometry

Fri, 09/01/2006 (All day) to Fri, 06/01/2007 (All day)
(2006-2007)

During the academic year 2006-07, the School of Mathematics will have a special program on algebraic geometry. We don't want to focus on any single aspect, but rather aim to have many flavors of algebraic geometry and its applications represented, including (not exhaustive list) cohomology theories, motives, moduli spaces, Shimura varieties, complex or $p$-adic analytic methods and singularities.

Geometric Partial Differential Equations

Mon, 09/01/1997 (All day) to Tue, 06/30/1998 (All day)
(1997-1998)

During the academic year 1997-98, there will be a full year program in Geometric PDE at the Institute. Karen Uhlebeck will be in residence as Distinguished Visiting Professor for the year, and she will serve as primary organizer of the program.

The following is Karen Uhlenbeck's statement about the organization and goals of this program:

$A^1$ 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.

Automorphic Forms and Representation Theory

Fri, 09/01/2000 (All day) to Sat, 06/30/2001 (All day)
(2000-2001)

James Arthur from the University of Toronto will be in residence at the Institute for the academic year 2000-01 and will be giving an advanced course on the trace formula and applications. In addition, Robert Kottwitz, Diana Shelstad, M. -F. Vigneras, G. Henniart and J. -P. Labesse will be in residence for term II.

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.
