Operator algebras and topological dynamics: amenability and beyond

Summer 2021

This is a Focus Programme on operator algebras and their interplay with group actions. In this context we will be interested in amenable structures and their many incarnations, and in rigidity phenomena which typically arise as soon as one leaves the amenable setup.

Conferences and Workshops:

Geometry and PDEs: from theory to applications

September - November 2021

This Focus Programme aims to connect the fields of differential geometry, metric geometry, PDEs, calculus of variations, data science and numerics. We will study geometric flows, geometric viewpoints on PDEs and data, as well as measure-based generalizations of geometric notions.
