MAA MathFest presents the latest in mathematical research and education each summer from the Mathematical Association of America, the world’s largest community of mathematicians, students, and enthusiasts. Join us for mathematical talks, social events, and more Aug. 1-4, 2018 in Denver.
To understand the structure of an algebraic variety we often embed it in various projective spaces. This develops the notion of geometry which has been an invaluable tool. We begin to develop a perfectoid analog of projective geometry, and explore how equipping a perfectoid space with a map to a certain analog of projective space can be a powerful tool to understand its geometric and arithmetic structure. Along the way we do the following.
1) Prove a Quillen-Suslin theorem for the perfectoid closed unit disk.
2) Compute the Picard group of perfectoid projective space.
3) Compute the cohomology of all line bundles on perfectoid projective space.
4) Compute the functor of points of perfectoid projective space.
5) Use projective geometry to compare the Picard groups of perfectoid spaces and their tilts.

Andrea Bertozzi Elected to NAS
May 1, 2018 - ICERM is pleased to share the news that Andrea Bertozzi, the founding chair of ICERM's Scientific Advisory Board, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Andrea is known for her research in image segmentation, cooperative control of robotic vehicles, swarming, fluid interfaces, and crime modeling. Her ICERM public lecture on "The Mathematics of Crime" inspired the institute's 2016 "Predictive Policing" workshop.
Walker Named SIAM Fellow
April 4, 2018 - Homer Walker (WPI) was recently named a SIAM Fellow. Homer, an ICERM Deputy Director Emeritus, was recognized for his contributions to theory and software of iterative methods for nonlinear systems and optimization, as well as application of these methods to scientific simulations.
Bjorn Sandstede Named New DSI Director
March 31, 2018 - Bjorn Sandstede, one of ICERM's founding Associate Directors, has been named the director of Brown's Data Science Initiative.
