In Part 2 we will delve into the worlds of derived and spectral algebraic

geometry. After reviewing some basic notions we will explain how motivic

homotopy theory can be extended to these settings. As far as time permits

we will then discuss applications to virtual fundamental classes, as well

as a new cohomology theory for commutative ring spectra, a brave new

analogue of Weibel's KH

Enrico Fermi and the birth of modern nonlinear physics

In the early fifties in Los Alamos E. Fermi in collaboration with J. Pasta and S. Ulam investigated a one dimensional chain of equal masses connected by a weakly nonlinear spring. The key question was related to the understanding of the phenomenon of conduction in solids; in particular they wanted to estimate the time needed to reach a statistical equilibrium state characterized by the equipartition of energy among the Fourier modes. They approached the problem numerically using the MANIAC I computer; however, the system did not thermailize and  they observed a recurrence to the initial state (this is known as the FPU-recurrence). This unexpected result has led to the development of the modern nonlinear physics (discovery of solitons and integrability). In this seminar, I will give an historical overview of the subject and present the different approaches that have been proposed in the last 60 years for explaining this paradox. Very recent results on the estimation of the time scale and on  the explanation of the mechanism of equipartition will also be discussed.

The 17th Danish-Norwegian workshop in Operator algebras will take place at Lysebu (Oslo), January 5 - 8, 2017, with support from the Foundation for Danish-Norwegian Cooperation. It will start with lunch on Thursday, January 5, and end after breakfast on Sunday, January 8.

The first day of the workshop will be devoted to commemorate our dear colleague and friend, Ola Bratteli, who passed away in 2015 and would have turned 70 in October 2016.  Ola’s nearest collaborators over the years (George Elliott, Davis Evans, Akitaka Kishimoto, Palle Jorgensen and Derek Robinson) will then give talks reflecting the great impact of Ola’s work within several topics (e.g. AF-algebras, derivations, C*-dynamical systems, mathematical physics, wavelets).

Participation is possible only by personal invitation from the organizing committee. 

The programme will be made available around the end of November.

We consider extensions of Morel-Voevodsky's motivic homotopy theory to the

settings of derived and spectral algebraic geometry. Part I will be a

review of the language of infinity-categories and the setup of

Morel-Voevodsky homotopy theory in this language. As an example we will

sketch an infinity-categorical proof of the representability of Weibel's

homotopy invariant K-theory in the motivic homotopy category.

Experimental investigation of linear stability mechanisms in stratified gas-liquid pipe flow

The evolution of interfacial waves on a stratified air water pipe flow is investigated experimentally. An oscillating plate introduced controlled perturbations at the inlet of the pipe. High speed cameras captured the evolution of these perturbations along the pipe by means of a phase-locked shadowgraphy technique. Thereby, it was possible to measure the temporal and the spatial evolution of the disturbances introduced in the flow. Particle image velocimetry was performed further downstream in order to evaluate changes in the base flow. 

A relatively large data bank has been gathered with varying air and water flow rates as well as varying amplitudes and frequencies of the inlet perturbations. Some preliminary results contain a qualitative assessment of linear vs. non-linear regimes and momentum transfer into the water layer.

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.

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.
