The method of Euler systems models L-functions of automorphic forms in terms of motivic or Galois cohomological data (Galois cohomology classes). It is a major tool in the proof of the known cases of the Bloch-Kato conjectures. The objective of the workshop is to introduce graduate students and junior researchers to the theory of Euler ...

Euler systems have been powerful tools in the study of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. As such, understanding more conceptually the constructions of Euler systems and relating these to other areas of mathematics such as representation theory could be of great interest. The goal of the conference will be to discuss novel constructions of Euler ... Read more about "Special Cycles on Shimura Varieties and Iwasawa Theory"

Electrochemistry is used widely today, spanning from production of hydrogen and metals such as aluminum and Li-ion batteries. We will discuss current and future opportunities in using electrochemistry to power cars and buildings, and to make chemicals and fuels with energy from the Sun. Design principles in controlling the interactions between surfaces and electrolytes, and ... Read more about "The Future of Electrochemistry"

Plant homeodomain (PHD) fingers, YEATS, Tudor and bromodomains are found in proteins involved in a wide array of fundamental biological processes, including transcription, replication, DNA damage repair, cell differentiation and survival. These domains comprise the largest families of epigenetic readers, capable of recognizing PTMs (posttranslational modifications) in histones. During her talk, Prof. Kutateladze will detail ...

In this talk I will begin by introducing elliptic curves and some basic questions about them. After recalling what is known in the case of elliptic curves over the rational numbers, I will discuss some new heuristics and conjectures about how the group of points grows in towers of abelian extensions. This is joint work ... Read more about "Bernoulli Lecture - Some new conjectures about abelian points on elliptic curves"

IMT Distinguished Lecture Abstract: In recent years there has been an ever-increasing explosion of “Big Data” mainly in the form of unstructured data sets. Likewise, the growth of our awareness of complexity and emergent behavior has been recognized in networks ranging from social media, economics, bio complexity and the weather. Together with the slowing down ... Read more about "Neuroarchitectonic Devices using Atomic Switches"

This conference will conclude the semester program on "Euler Systems and Special Values of L-functions". The goal will be to present recent advances in the constructions of Euler systems, their applications to the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture and Iwasawa theory. Emphasis will be given on novel results obtained during the semester. Read more about "Recent Developments on the Arithmetic of Special Values of L-functions"

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"
