This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to localization techniques in equivariant cohomology. Localization techniques in equivariant cohomology are a powerful tool in computational algebraic topology in the context of a topological space with the action of a Lie group. The development of these techniques has led to an explosion of research, including groundbreaking work in many different fields, especially algebraic combinatorics, algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, and algebraic topology.
The goal of this conference is to relate the geometric and combinatorial aspects of what has been dubbed ''GKM'' theory by bringing researchers from combinatorics and geometry/topology together, so that workers in each of these fields can benefit from the insights and experience of those in the other. The conference will address open questions such as the following:
The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.
The deadline to apply for support to participate in this workshop has passed.
