Swindles relating distinct symplectic structures

James Pascaleff (UIUC)

Abstract: An interesting phenomenon in symplectic topology is the existence of multiple non-equivalent symplectic structures on a single manifold. Often, such structures can be distinguished by their Fukaya categories. A natural question is whether there is any relationship between these categories. In this talk I will show that in some simple examples the categories are related by functors that are reminiscent of the Eilenberg swindle.

Dense orbits in the space of subequivalence relations

Forte Shinko (Caltech)

Abstract: Given a measure-preserving countable Borel equivalence relation $E$, there is a Polish space $S(E)$ of subequivalence relations, which admits a natural action of the full group $[E]$. One can ask the following natural question: does $S(E)$ have a dense orbit? We will present results due to François Le Maître which show that the answer is yes when $E$ is the hyperfinite ergodic equivalence relation, and that the answer is no when $E$ is induced by a measure-preserving action of a property (T) group.

Cohomology of Shimura Varieties

Sug Woo Shin (University of California Berkeley)

Abstract: Shimura varieties are a certain class of algebraic varieties over number fields with lots of symmetries, introduced by Shimura and Deligne nearly half a century ago. They have been playing a central role in number theory and other areas. Langlands proposed a program to compute the L-functions and cohomology of Shimura varieites in 1970s; this was refined by Langlands-Rapoport and Kottwitz in 1980s. I will review some old and recent results in this direction.
