Michele Graffeo - Moduli spaces of Z/kZ-constellations over the affine plane
It is a classical result that, for any finite subgroup G of SL(n,C), for n=2,3, there exists (at least) one crepant resolution of the singularity "affine n-space modulo G-action". When G is abelian, thanks to a work of Craw and Ishii, any such resolution can be interpreted as the fine moduli space of certain coherent sheaves, called G-constellations, which are stable with respect to a GIT stability condition. In my talk I will introduce the above mentioned notions and I will talk about some combinatorial objects that I have introduced to describe the two-dimensional setting. If time permits, I will also explain some three-dimensional phenomena.

Jens de Vries- C*-Actions and Takai Duality

Daily Supervisor: Dr. Henrik Kreidler(University of Wuppertal, Germany)

Local Supervisor: Dr. Karma Dajani

Second Reader: Dr. Fabian Ziltener

Abstract: The study of classical dynamical systems $(G,\Omega)$ dealswith actions of locally compact Hausdorff groups $G$ on locally compactHausdorff spaces $\Omega$. It is long recognized that classical dynamicalsystems can be succesfully studied via C*-algebras. A C*-action is atopological group homomorphism $\alpha$ from a locally compact Hausdorff group$G$ to $\Aut(A)$, where $\Aut(A)$ is the automorphism group of a C*-algebra $A$endowed with the topology of pointwise convergence. The C*-actions involvingcommutative C*-algebras precisely model the classical dynamical systems.

Every C*-action gives rise to a C*-algebra, called thecrossed product, which encodes a lot of information about the C*-action. Usingcrossed products and duality theory for abelian locally compact Hausdorffgroups $G$ one can develop a certain duality theory for C*-actions $\alpha$.Just as Pontryagin duality describes the second dual of $G$, Takai dualitydescribes the second dual of $\alpha$. In essence, one recovers a C*-actionfrom its crossed product up to tensoring with another C*-action.

Mini-Workshop on Symplectic Geometry

This mini-workshop is aimed at researchers, Ph.D. students, and advanced master's students working in symplectic geometry and related areas. It is organized jointly with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

This is the tenth workshop that we are organizing. Building on a pre-corona tradition, we plan to organize these mini-workshops again biannually. The goal is to strengthen the symplectic community of the Netherlands and to connect it with abroad. Topics include Hamiltonian dynamics, the symplectic embedding question, holomorphic curves, and Floer homology.
