Some pictures from the SPP Conference in April 2019 in Münster. Let me start with a picture of the speaker of the SPP, Bernhard Hanke, explaining at the beginning of the conference the next steps leading to the second funding period of the SPP. (I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of Carsten Balleier from … Continue reading "Impressions from the SPP Conference"
There was a Special Session on Coarse Geometry, Index Theory, and Operator Algebras: Around the Mathematics of John Roe at the Spring Central and Western Joint Sectional Meeting of the AMS last weekend to which Christopher and I were invited to give talks. John Roe passed away last year. His personal webpage is still online … Continue reading "AMS Special Session on the Mathematics of John Roe"
These days, there was the 2nd Bavarian Geometry/Topology Meeting, organized by Fabian Hebestreit and Markus Land, and hopefully becoming a tradition as the NRW topology meeting which by now had its 28th recurrent. Main event of the meeting were the lectures of Oscar Randal-Williams from Oxford, who discussed work on the cohomology of the mapping … Continue reading "Bavarian Geometry/Topology Meeting"
Listening to 33 math talks within 2 times 6 hours is certainly a unique experience. If you missed the event, you may enjoy the slides of the talks: All Slides for Download
Today, there was the Séminaire Bourbaki, which takes place every four months in Paris. The list of the talks can be found here. Interesting from the point of view „Geometry at Infinity“ was especially the talk of Olivier Guichard regarding work of Kapovich-Leeb-Porti and Labourie on convex-cocompact groups in higher rank symmetric spaces: Another talk … Continue reading "Séminare Bourbaki: Convex-cocompactness in higher rank"
This week there was the workshop “Non-positively curved groups and spaces” in Regensburg.
This week there was the common meeting of the Austrian and German mathematical societies at the University of Salzburg and besides many interesting math talks there was also a session about the future of knowledge management.
Some impressions from the conference “Curvature and global shape” that took place July 24-28 in Münster.
