We will discuss the motivic May spectral sequence and demonstrate how to use it to identify Massey products in the motivic Adams spectral sequence. We will then investigate what is known about the motivic homotopy groups of the eta-local sphere over the complex numbers and discuss how these calculations may work over other base fields.

Certain 3-dimensional lens spaces are known to smoothly bound 4-manifolds with the rational homology of a ball. These can sometimes be useful in cut-and-paste constructions of interesting (exotic) smooth 4-manifolds. To this end it is interesting to identify 4-manifolds which contain these rational balls. Khodorovskiy used Kirby calculus to exhibit embeddings of rational balls in certain linear plumbed 4-manifolds, and recently Park-Park-Shin used methods from the minimal model program in 3-dimensional complex algebraic geometry to generalise Khodorovskiy's result. The goal of this talk is to give an accessible introduction to the objects mentioned above and also to describe a much easier topological proof of Park-Park-Shin's theorem.

Bartosz Kwasniewski (Odense) will give a talk with title: Paradoxicality and pure infiniteness of C*-algebras associated to Fell bundles

Abstract: Abstract: In this talk we present conditions implying pure infiniteness of the reduced cross-sectional $C^*$-algebra $C^*_r(\mathcal{B})$ of a Fell bundle $\mathcal{B}$ over a discrete group $G$. We introduce notions of aperiodicity, $\mathcal{B}$-paradoxicality and residual $\mathcal{B}$-infiniteness. We discuss their relationship with similar conditions studied, in the context of crossed products, by the following duos: Laca, Spielberg; Jolissaint, Robertson; Sierakowski, R{\o}rdam; Giordano, Sierakowski and Kirchberg, Sierakowski. (based on joint work with Wojciech Szyma{\'n}ski)

In the nineties, Deninger gave a detailed description of a conjectural cohomological interpretation of the (completed) Hasse-Weil zeta function of a regular scheme proper over the ring of rational integers. He envisioned the cohomology theory to take values in countably infinite dimensional complex vector spaces and the zeta function to emerge as the regularized determinant of the infinitesimal generator of a Frobenius flow. In this talk, I will explain that for a scheme smooth and proper over a finite field, the desired cohomology theory naturally appears from the Tate cohomology of the action by the circle group on the topological Hochschild homology of the scheme in question.

Abstract: Exploring connections between subfactors and conformal field theories, Vaughan Jones recently observed that planar algebras give rise to unitary representations of the Thompson group F, and more generally, to unitary representations of the group of fractions of certain categories. Remarkably, this procedure applies to oriented link invariants. In particular, a suitably normalized HOMFLYPT polynomial is a positive definite function on the oriented Thompson group. (Based on joint work with V. Aiello and V. Jones.)

The motivic Adams spectral sequence is a general tool for calculating homotopy groups of a motivic spectrum X. We will investigate the construction of the motivic Adams spectral sequence, determine the second page of the spectral sequence, and identify what it converges to in good cases. If time permits, we will show how to use the motivic Adams spectral sequence to obtain explicit calculations of the motivic homotopy groups of spheres and other spectra.

Bloch constructed higher cycle class maps from higher Chow groups to Deligne cohomology and étale cohomology. I will define a map from the motivic Eilenberg-Mac Lane spectrum to the spectrum representing Deligne cohomology in the motivic stable homotopy category over C such that it gives Bloch's higher cycle class map on cohomology. The map is induced by the map from Voevodsky's algebraic cobordism spectrum MGL to the Hodge-filtered complex cobordism spectrum defined by Hopkins-Quick. This extends a result of Totaro showing that the usual cycle class map to singular cohomology factors through complex cobordism modulo the coefficients of the Lazard ring MU^{2*} tensor_L Z. This is joint work with Amit Hogadi.

On 5-7 July 2016, there will be a conference on the mathematics of energy markets organized at the Wolfgang Pauli Institute (WPI) in Vienna, Austria. The conference is an activity within the thematic program "Mathematics for Risk in Finance and Energy" at the WPI.

We welcome participants from academia and industry to take part in this event.

A **pre-conference intensive course** on stochastic modelling of energy markets will be organized on Monday July 4. The course leader will be Professor Fred Espen Benth. Click here to get more information about the intensive course.

Time and place:
July 4, 2016 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM,

By participating in this intensive course, you will learn about recent developments in the modelling of the random dynamics of forward and futures prices in energy (and commodity) markets. A general theoretical framework for stochastic processes with values in function space is developed, and applied to the particular situation of forward price modelling, yielding a class of space-time random fields.

The course requires a knowledge in stochastic analysis.
