In this talk I will introduce the chromatic number of a lattice: It is the least number of colors one needs to color the interiors of the cells of the Voronoi tessellation of a lattice so that no two cells sharing a facet are of the same color. I will introduce two lower bounds for ... Read more about "Coloring the Voronoi tessellation of lattices"

The developments of statistical mechanics and of quantum field theory are among the major achievements of 20th century's science. In the second half of the century, these two subjects started to converge, resulting in some of the most remarkable successes of mathematical physics. At the heart of this convergence lies the conjecture that critical lattice ... Read more about "Statistical Field Theory and the Ising Model"

La classification par Breuil de ces représentations pour GL(2,Qp) a été le point de départ de la correspondance de Langlands p-adique reliant représentations de GL(2,Qp) et représentations du groupe de Galois absolu Gal de Qp. Elles correspondent aux représentations irréductibles de dimension 2 de Gal sur un corps de caractéristique p. Pourquoi ces représentations sont-elles ...

The study of measurable group actions on standard Borel spaces is of central importance both in descriptive set theory and ergodic theory. In recent years, the study of (definable) combinatorial structures (such as graphs, simplicial complexes, geometric objects...) has shown itself to be a powerful tool for understanding group actions and also to see what ...

The combinatorics of abelian group actions on Polish spaces has been the subject of recent investigation, and is (somewhat surprisingly) interesting and non-trivial. If one considers the actions of Zn, we see a pattern develop: problems which are easy for n=1 become much more difficult for n at least 2. We discuss three example of ...

In a seminal paper, Voevodsky introduced the smash-nilpotence equivalence relation on the group of algebraic cycles on a smooth projective variety. He also conjectured that the nilpotence equivalence corresponds to the classical numerical equivalence on cycles. More recently, Bernardara, Marcolli and Tabuada defined a noncommutative version of this conjecture for smooth and proper dg categories. ...

Climate models have been the focus of much attention in the past three decades; indeed, they have been instrumental in highlighting the causes and consequences of anthropogenic climate change, and their results have largely contributed to climate policy and, in particular, the 2015 Paris Climate Accord. In this talk, we shall briefly outline the underlying ... Read more about "Climate models: their functioning, projections, and uncertainties"

Polish topological groups comprise all locally compact second countable groups, but also most interesting topological transformation groups such as homeomorphism and diffeomorphism groups of compact manifolds, isometry groups of separable complete metric spaces, and automorphism groups of countable model theoretical structures. While all of these classes had been intensively studied separately, there has recently been ... Read more about "Structure and dynamics of Polish groups conference"

The topic of this workshop will be geometric group theory in a larger context. As is well known, there are close links between geometric group theory of finitely generated or locally compact groups and geometric non-linear functional analysis, i.e., the non-linear geometry of Banach spaces. While this has for a long time been seen as ... Read more about "Large scale geometry of Polish groups workshop"

The success of the probability theory in mathematics and theoretical physics is due not so much to its measure theoretic foundation but because it exploits and enhances symmetries of the structures it applies to. We shall describe in this lecture two alternative approaches to the concept of probability, where the first one is motivated by ...

Exceptional sets play an important role in numerous branches of mathematics, for instance in measure theory, topology, harmonic and complex analysis, Banach space theory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, probability and ergodic theory, set theory and descriptive set theory, just to mention a few. Exceptional sets describe notions of smallness from various points of view, some notable ... Read more about "Ideals and exceptional sets in Polish spaces"

This is the last conference of the semester and will be of a more general nature than the earlier more specialized conferences and workshops of the program. It will cover broad aspects of descriptive set theory and its connections with other areas of mathematics. Read more about "Descriptive set theory conference"
