### Dynamics - Geometry - Structure

Mathematics is a key technology for scientific and economic progress. New discoveries in mathematics are not only interesting in themselves, but they often lead to unexpected breakthroughs in other sciences as well.

We will tackle fundamentally important mathematical problems, viewing mathematics as an organic whole with countless interactions. The research in our Cluster of Excellence "Mathematics Münster" is unified by three major approaches: focusing on the underlying structure of a given problem, taking the geometric viewpoint and studying the relevant dynamics of group or semigroup actions. The theories which we will build will not only solve the problems under consideration but also many others of a similar nature; these theories will also raise exciting new questions.

## Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry

2 - 6 October 2023

A conference on the occasion of Michael Rapoport's 75th birthday

The geometry of moduli spaces related to the Langlands programme is a rapidly evolving field. We bring together both experts and young researchers to foster these developments.

## Totally disconnected locally compact groups: local to global

9 - 13 October 2023

*Part of the Focus Programme: Actions of totally disconnected, locally compact groups on discrete structures*

This workshop studies the relationship between local, or small-scale, and global, or large-scale, properties of t.d.l.c. groups, which is more subtle than for Lie groups. Small-scale structure, which manifests both in the topological group structure and the objects on which the groups act, interacts with large-scale properties such as simplicity, amenability and quasi-isometry type.

## Riccardo Christoferi: Shape optimization for attractive-repulsive energies

12 October 2023, 2:15 pm

~~Dr. Riccardo Christoferi (Radboud University) will give a talk at the Colloquium Wilhelm Killing on 12 October 2023. The talk takes place at 2:15 pm in lecture hall M5 and via Zoom (passwort: LieAlgebra). ~~

## Joint Seminar on Complex Algebraic Geometry and Complex Analysis

27 October 2023

The "Joint Seminar on Complex Algebraic Geometry and Complex Analysis" is a research seminar, organised by the algebraic and complex geometry research groups in Bochum, Essen, Cologne, Münster, and Wuppertal. The seminar meets roughly twice per semester for a full day at one of the participating departments. There are three talks per meeting, both by invited guests and by speakers from the organising universities.
