DESCRIPTION:Title: Top cohomology of congruence subgroups of SL_n(Z)\nby Peter Patzt
(Copenhagen University/ University of Oklahoma) as part of BIRS workshop:
Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstract\nThe principal
congruence subgroup of SL_n(Z) of prime level\np is the kernel of the mod
p map SL_n(Z) to SL_n(Z/pZ). Its cohomology\nvanishes in degrees above n(
n-1)/2. Lee and Szczarba gave a comparison\nmap of its cohomology in top d
egree n(n-1)/2 to the top homology of an\n"oriented" version of the Tits b
uilding of F_p. We prove this map is\nsurjective for all primes p and inje
ctive if and only if p=2\,3\,5. In\nparticular\, the case p=5 is a new and
complete computation of the top\ncohomology. This is joint work with Jere
my Miller and Andrew Putman.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Improved computation of fundamental domains for arithmetic Fuchsian g

IRS workshop: Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstract\n
The fundamental domain of an arithmetic Fuchsian group $\\Gamma$ reveals a
lot of interesting information about the group. An algorithm to compute t
his fundamental domain in practice was given by Voight\, and it was later
expanded by Page to the case of arithmetic Kleinian groups. Page's version
features a probabilistic enumeration of group elements\, which performs s
ignificantly better in practice. In this talk\, we describe work to improv
e the geometric algorithms\, and specialize Page's enumeration down to Fuc
hsian groups\, to produce a final algorithm that is much more efficient. O
ptimal choices of constants in the enumeration are given by heuristics\, w
hich are supported by large amounts of data. This algorithm has been imple
mented in PARI/GP\, and we demonstrate its practicality by comparing runni
ng times versus the live Magma implementation of Voight's algorithm.\n

rfect forms over that field. We investigate these\nforms in the rank 2 ca
se using a Voronoi's reduction theory. We show that\nthe perfect forms ca
nnot get too complicated\, which allows us to give a\nlower bound on the n
umber such perfect forms in terms of the discriminant\nof the field and th
e value of the Dedekind zeta function at 2. This is\njoint work with Kris

DESCRIPTION:Title: A polyhedral approach to the arithmetic and geometry of hyperbolic l
ink complements\nby Ruth Kellerhals (University of Fribourg) as part o
f BIRS workshop: Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstrac
t\nMotivated by the work of Meyer\, Millichap and Trapp [MMT] and by Thurs
ton\, I shall present an elementary polyhedral approach to study and deduc
e results about the arithmeticity and commensurability of an infinite fami
ly of hyperbolic link complements M_n for n>2. The manifold M_n is the co
mplement of the 3-sphere by the (2n)-link chain. \nThe hyperbolic structur
e of M_n stems from an ideal right-angled polyhedron that can be cut into
four copies of an ideal right-angled n-gonal antiprism. \nEach of these po
lyhedra gives rise to a hyperbolic Coxeter orbifold that is commensurable
to a hyperbolic orbifold with a single cusp. Vinberg's arithmeticity crite
rion and certain cusp density and volume computations allow us to reproduc
e some of the main results in [MMT] about M_n in a comparatively elementar
y and direct way. This approach works in several other cases of link compl
ements as well.\n

or any (torsion-free) lattice Γ\\Gamma in G\, the size of the torsion sub
groups of all its homology groups is at most C^v where v is its covolume i

logy of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstract\nLet $F$ be an imaginary cylic sex
tic field with discriminant $\\Delta$ and the ring of integers $O_F$. \n
The size function $h^0$ for $F$ is an analogue of the dime
nsion of the Riemann-Roch spaces of divisors on an algebraic curve. By Van
der Geer and Schoof's conjecture\, on the set of all (isometric) ideal la
ttices of covolume $\\sqrt{|\\Delta|}$ the function $h^0$ attains its max
imum at the trivial ideal lattice $O_F$. In this talk we will discuss the
main idea to prove that the conjecture holds for $F$.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Generating Cryptographically-Strong Random Lattice Bases and Recogni
zing Rotations of Z^n\nby Tamar Blanks (Rutgers University) as part of
BIRS workshop: Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstract
\nLattice-based cryptography relies on generating random bases which are d
ifficult to fully reduce. Given a lattice basis (such as the private basis
for a cryptosystem)\, all other bases are related by multiplication by ma
trices in GL(n\, Z). We compare the strengths of various methods to sample
random elements of SL(n\, Z)\, finding some are stronger than others with
respect to the problem of recognizing rotations of the Z^n lattice. In pa
rticular\, the standard algorithm of multiplying unipotent generators toge
ther (as implemented in Magma's RandomSLnZ command) generates instances of
this last problem which can be efficiently broken\, even in dimensions ne
aring 1\,500. We also can efficiently break the random basis generation me
thod in one of the NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography competition submissions
(DRS). Other random basis generation algorithms (some older\, some newer)
are described which appear to be much stronger.\n

ieu Dutour Sikiric (Rudjer Bosković Institute) as part of BIRS workshop:
Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstract\nOver several w
ork that I did\, I use a combination\nof tools from group theory\, polyhed
ral geometry in order to\ncompute geometric or topological information.\nI
have now shifted most of my programs to a C++ framework\nin order to achi
eve the best performance. All of the software\nis open source and I will p
resent what has been done\, the\nissues and what can be done in the future
. I will present here\nwhat parts are relevant to lattice and cohomology t
heories.\n\n---The foundational part of a lot of this is "permutalib" whic
h is\na permutation group library that allows to compute set-stabilizer\na
nd other operations needed for polyhedral computation which\nis 10 times f
aster than GAP.\n\n---A direct application of it is the computation of the
automorphism\ngroup of polytope. Another fundamental construction is the\
ncanonical form of a polytope which greatly helps with enumeration\ntasks.
\n\n---This also translates into an algorithm for the computation of the\n
canonical form of a quadratic form. An illustration of this\nwas the enume
ration of C-type in dimension 6 where we found\n55 million types in reason
able time.\n\n---We also provide efficient algorithms for dual description
using\nsymmetries where we achieve a two-fold improvement over GAP.\n---W
e also provide an implementation of the Vinberg algorithm\nusing all the a
bove that allows us to solve some 19 dimensional\nexamples easily.\n\nThe
point of this presentation is not really to concentrate on specific\nprobl
ems but to show approaches that allow us to treat large problems.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Profinite rigidity of lattices in higher rank Lie groups\nby Ste
ffen Kionke (University of Hagen\, Germany) as part of BIRS workshop: Latt
ices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups\n\n\nAbstract\nThe famous arithme
ticity and superrigidity results of Margulis allow to classify lattices in
higher rank Lie groups up to commensurability. It is known that two non-c
ommensurable lattices can still be profinitely commensurable\, i.e.\, thei
r profinite completions have isomorphic open subgroups. In this talk I wil
l explain how lattices in higher rank can be classified up to profinite co
mmensurability (modulo the congruence subgroup problem). We will see that
profinitely commensurable lattices exist in most simple Lie groups of high
er rank. More surprisingly\, such examples cannot exist in the complex Lie
groups of type E_8\, F_4 and G_2.\n\nThis is based on joint work with Hol
ger Kammeyer.\n
