Dr. Manjunath Krishnapur from IISc Bangalore was invited as the special guest. In addition to his excellent plenary talk, there were eleven other talks — five by postdocs and six by PhD students. The Symposium also included a poster presentation by some PhD students. This year, we have broadened the theme of the Symposium to include more invited talks by researchers from Institutes across the country. We believe this would motivate and guide our students in their research endeavors and also provide an atmosphere for collaborative research across disciplines.

16th Discussion Meeting in Harmonic Analysis, 16-19 Dec 2019

The first discussion meeting in harmonic analysis (DMHA) was organized by Professor M. G. Nadkarni at the University of Bombay in 1988. It had a very small budget and around 25 participants. The meeting was a great success and the participants decided to have a meeting once every two years at different locations across the country. The vision of that initial group was to have a meeting of all practitioners and students of harmonic analysis in the country, where they would be able to present their work, and discuss new developments in the subject. As participation in the biennial meeting has grown over the years, their vision has been realized. The core of a DMHA is a series of lectures focusing on one theme, by an expert in one of the promising fields. The DMHAs are intended to be accessible to mathematicians at the beginning of their career.

NCM Workshop in Harmonic Analysis, 10-14 Dec 2019

Speaker: Luca Fanelli (SAPIENZA Università di Roma, Italy)
Description: First set of lectures will be on Uniform Resolvent Estimates for Laplace and Dirac operators and applications. The plan of these lectures is as follows:
i) Introduction, non self-adjoint Hamiltonians and eigenvalue problems. The Birman-Schwinger Principle and absence of eigenvalues, as a consequence of uniform resolvent estimates for the free Hamiltonian. An overview of recent results in the non-relativistic case (Frank, Seiringer, Simon et al).
ii) The uniform Sobolev Estimate for the resolvent of the free Schrödinger Hamiltonian by Kenig-Ruiz-Sogge. Proof, and failure of the estimate for the Dirac Hamiltonian.
iii) A new Agmon-Hörmander-type estimate for the free Dirac operators. As a consequence, absence of eigenvalues for Dirac operators with almost scaling invariant complex potentials. The results are obtained in collaboration with P. D’Ancona, and N. Schiavone (Roma Sapienza).


NCMW - Operator Algebras, Quantum Groups and Noncommutative Geometry, July 1-13, 2019

In this workshop, we studied three fundamental areas of Operator Algebras, each of which is an important and involved field in its own right: (i) Noncommutative Geometry [taught by Dr. Sayan Chakraborty (IISER, Bhopal) and Prof. Arup K. Pal (ISI, Delhi)], (ii) K-theory [taught by Dr. Rohit Holkar (IISER Bhopal), and Dr. Prahlad Vaidyanathan (IISER Bhopal)], and (iii) Quantum Groups [taught by Dr. Sutanu Roy (NISER, Bhubaneshwar)]. Each course consisted of some introductory lectures in the first week, while the second week consisted of more advanced material, reflecting modern research trends within the subject. The students attending the workshop were either in an advanced stage of their PhD program, or post-docs working in related fields. The feedback from the students and the faculty was overwhelmingly positive, and the workshop was a great success.

The National Conference on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry (CAAG), July 2- 6, 2019

The National Conference on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry (CAAG) was held at IISER Bhopal during July 2-6, 2019. This is a part of biennial national / international conference on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry being held over the last two decades. Around sixty people participated in the conference. The conference brought together senior and young researchers for exchange of ideas. It also provided a platform for the young researchers to be updated on the latest developments in the subject.

In-House Symposium, February 8-9, 2019

The In-House Symposium of the Department of Mathematics was conceived as a platform for post-doctoral researchers and PhD students to present their research, and to engender fruitful discussion among them and faculty members with disparate research interests. The second symposium was held on 8th and 9th of February, 2019. Dr. Manjunath Krishnapur (IISc) was invited as a special guest. In addition to his excellent plenary talk, there were eleven other talks; five by post-docs and six by PhD students, and several lively discussions over coffee. The Symposium also included a poster presentation by some PhD students. The culture of free exchange of ideas that has been a core value of the department was there for all to see, and it is hoped that future iterations continue building on this.

NCM workshop on Contact and Symplectic Geometry, December 3-14, 2018

In the last two decades, the area of Contact and Symplectic Geometry has been growing very rapidly. The geometry and topology of Contact and Symplectic structures is intimately tied with the properties of the manifolds on which these structures rest. This area has interesting and intriguing connections with many fields in mathematics and physics.
In this workshop, we wish to give the audience a fairly good knowledge about the two dominant features of Contact and Symplectic structures, namely "Flexibility" and "Rigidity" as envisaged by Gromov and propagated further by Eliashberg and others.
The flexibility refers to a feature of these structures where “h-principle” type results can be proved while the rigidity refers to an aspect that relies on the use of “J-holomorphic curves”. The fine line that differentiates the flexibility and the rigidity has been elusive, and is a matter of great mathematical interest.
The first week of the workshop will recall briefly the basics of Contact and Symplectic Geometry. The connections with other fields of mathematics and physics will be discussed. Eliashberg's classification of overtwisted contact structures in dimension three will also be discussed. There will be talks on the introduction to J-holomorphic curves.
The second week will consist of lectures on advanced topics that reflect the current research trends in Contact and Symplectic Geometry. The students in the advanced stages of PhD program, postdocs and young faculty members working in this or related fields will greatly benefit from this workshop.

AFS - I (2018) IISER Bhopal | National Centre for Mathematics, December 3-29, 2018

Basic knowledge in algebra, analysis and topology forms the core of all Advanced Instructional Schools organized by NCM. The main objectives of AFS are to bring up students with diverse background to a common level and help them acquire basic knowledge in these subjects required in Advanced Instructional Schools.
