DESCRIPTION:Title: New geometrical methods in mathematical relativity\nby Olaf Müller
(Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) as part of Deformation Quantization Semi
nar\n\n\nAbstract\nThis talk presents some new geometric approaches to glo
bal behavior of solutions to classical field\nequations. The results compr
ise:\n\n• the existence of global solutions for Dirac-Higgs-Yang-Mills T
heories (like the standard model)\nin spacetimes close to Minkowski spacet
ime in the case of small initial values\, via the useful\nnotion of future
conformal compactification (joint work with Nicolas Ginoux)\,\n\n• the
existence of maximal Cauchy developments of Dirac-Higgs-Yang-Mills-Einstei
n theories (e.g.\nthe minimal coupling of the standard model to gravity an
d its sectors like Einstein-DiracMaxwell theory) with the main tool being
the Universal Spinor Bundle (joint work with Nikolai\nNowaczyk)\,\n\n• s
ome old and new results about how concentration of energy implies the deve
lopment of black\nholes\, and the “flatzoomer” method (developped in a
joint work with Marc Nardmann) applied\nin the construction of spacetimes
metrics satisfying energy conditions in a given conformal class.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Homotopical quantization of linear gauge theories\nby Marco Benini (
Università di Genova) as part of Deformation Quantization Seminar\n\n\nAb
stract\nIn a gauge theory\, gauge transformations encode a useful higher s
tructure that enables one to\nperform powerful constructions\, e.g. BRST/B
V quantization. The efficacy of the BRST/BV approach\nrelies on the flexib
ility of introducing auxiliary fields\, an operation which is formalized b
y quasiisomorphisms. This flexibility comes at the price that all construc
tions must be derived\, i.e. invariant\nunder quasi-isomorphisms (as oppos
ed to isomorphisms). Focusing on the prototypical example of\nlinear Yang-
Mills theory\, I will present a standard model for its derived critical lo
cus and equip the\nassociated complex of linear observables with its canon
ical shifted Poisson structure (antibracket). I\nwill show how global hype
rbolicity of the background Lorentzian manifold entails that this shifted\
nPoisson structure is (homologically) trivial and observe the existence of
two distinguished ways to\ntrivialize it. Combining these trivializations
leads to a non-trivial unshifted Poisson structure\, which\nI will quanti
ze via canonical commutation relations. This leads to an explicit example
of a homotopy\nalgebraic quantum field theory\, where the time-slice axiom
is encoded weakly by quasi-isomorphisms\n(as opposed to isomorphisms).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Universal Complexification of a Lie Group\nby Michael Heins (Jul
ius-Maximilians University Würzburg) as part of Deformation Quantization
Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn classical Lie theory\, a\n complexification of
a Lie group with Lie algebra $\\mathfrak{g}$ is a\n complex Lie group\, w
hose Lie algebra is given by the\n complexification $\\mathfrak{g}_{\\mat
hbb{C}}$ of $\\mathfrak{g}$ in the sense\n of vector spaces. Both from an
analytical and a categorical point of\n view\, this definition turned ou
t to be too naive to be truly\n useful. Historically\, this lead to the r
efined concept of\n universal complexification\, which is based on an ana
lytically\n desirable universal property. In this talk\, we motivate this
\n definition by briefly reviewing the vector space\n situation. Afterwa
rds\, we give a rather geometric construction of\n the universal complexi
fication of a given Lie group\, which was\n formalized by Hochschild arou
nd 1955 and refined by the Bourbaki\n group in the following decade. Alon
g the way\, we review Lie's\n seminal Theorems and meet the universal cov
ering group. While many\n properties of the resulting universal complexif
ication align with\n what we geometrically expect\, some notable aspects
turn out to\n differ\, which we discuss in detail. Finally\, we provide s
ome\n examples to illustrate the power and limitations of the machinery w
e\n have developed.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Asymptotic equivalence of two strict deformation quantizations and appli
cations to the classical limit\nby Christiaan van de Ven (University o
f Trento) as part of Deformation Quantization Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe c
oncept of strict deformation\n quantization provides a mathematical forma
lism that describes the\n transition from a classical theory to a quantum
theory in terms of\n deformations of (commutative) Poisson algebras (rep
resenting the\n classical theory) into non-commutative $C^*$-algebras\n
(characterizing the quantum theory). In this seminar we introduce\n the d
efinitions\, give several examples and show how quantization of\n the clo
sed unit 3-ball $B^3 \\subset \\mathbb{R}^3$ is related to\n quantization
of its smooth boundary (i.e. the two-sphere\n $S^2 \\subset \\mathbb{R}^
3$.) We will moreover give an application\n regarding the classical limit
of a quantum (spin) system and discuss\n the concept of spontaneous symm
etry breaking (SSB).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Transitive double Lie algebroids via core diagrams\nby Madeleine Jot
z Lean (Univ. Göttingen) as part of Deformation Quantization Seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nThis talk begins by explaining Brown and Mackenzie’s equivale
nce of locally trivial double groupoids with locally trivial core diagrams
(of groupoids). Then it establishes an equivalence between\nthe category
of transitive double Lie algebroids and the category of transitive core di
agrams (of Lie\nalgebroids). The construction of this equivalence uses the
comma double Lie algebroid of a morphism\nof Lie algebroids\, which is in
troduced as well. The proofs of the results in this talk rely heavily on\n
Gracia-Saz and Mehta’s equivalence of decomposed VB-algebroids with supe
r-representations\, and\nthey showcase the power of this recent tool in th
e study of VB-algebroids. Since core diagrams of\n(integrable) Lie algebro
ids integrate to core diagrams of Lie groupoids\, the equivalences above y
ields\na simple method for integrating transitive double Lie algebroids to
transitive double Lie groupoids.\nThis is joint work with Kirill Mackenzi
e\, who sadly passed in 2020.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Some approaches to the differential geometry of singular spaces\nby
João Nuno Mestre (University of Coimbra) as part of Deformation Quantizat
ion Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nSeveral objects that appear naturally in differ
ential geometry - the zero set \nof a smooth function\, or the quotient of
a manifold by a Lie group action\, for example - may not be smooth. \nBut
we may still want to study their differential geometry\, to the extent po
ssible\, in a way that generalizes \nusual concepts - the zero set of some
functions\, and the quotient of some group actions are smooth\, we want \
nto generalize those.\n \nA few possible approaches are to take inspiratio
n from algebraic geometry and study the object via an \nappropriately defi
ned algebra\, or sheaf\, of smooth functions\; or maybe to decompose the o
bject into smaller \npieces that are themselves smooth manifolds and fit t
ogether nicely\; or to describe the object in kind of a \n"generators and
relations" presentation\, where the generators and the relations are smoot
h\, and work with the \npresentation instead. These lead us to the study o
f differentiable spaces\, stratified spaces\, and Lie \ngroupoids (which g
ive presentations for differentiable stacks).\n\nIn this introductory talk
we will see the definitions of these concepts\, some examples in which th
ey can be \nof use\, and some classes of singular spaces which are quite w
ell behaved and have good descriptions in all \nthree pictures. I will als
o try to mention a panoramic view of other approaches to singular spaces\,
such as \ndiffeological spaces\, or noncommutative geometric techniques\,
and how they relate to the examples presented.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: GT-shadows and their action on Grothendieck’s child’s drawings\
nby Vasily Dolgushev (Temple University\, Philadelphia) as part of Deforma
tion Quantization Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe absolute Galois group of the
field of rational numbers and the Grothendieck-Teichmueller\ngroup introdu
ced by V. Drinfeld in 1990 are among the most mysterious objects in mathem
atics. My\ntalk will be devoted to GT-shadows. These tantalizing objects m
ay be thought of as “approximations”\nto elements of the mysterious Gr
othendieck-Teichmueller group. They form a groupoid and act on\nGrothendie
ck’s child’s drawings. Currently\, the most amazing discovery related
to GT-shadows is\nthat the orbits of child’s drawings with respect to th
e action of the absolute Galois group (when\nthey can be computed) and the
orbits of child’s drawings with respect to the action of GT-shadows\nco
incide! If time permits\, I will say a few words about GT-shadows in the A
belian setting. My talk\nis partially based on the joint paper https://arx

DESCRIPTION:Title: Introduction to Graded Manifolds\nby Jan Vysoký (Czech Technical U
niversity in Prague) as part of Deformation Quantization Seminar\n\n\nAbst
ract\nA need for a geometrical theory with integer graded coordinates aros
e both in geometry (Courant algebroids\, Poisson geometry) and physics (AK
SZ and BV formalism). Based on the approach of Berezin-Leites and Kostant
to supermanifolds\, $\\mathbb{Z}$-graded manifolds are usually defined as
(graded) locally ringed spaces\, that is certain sheaves of graded commuta
tive algebras over (second countable Hausdorff) topological spaces\, local
ly isomorphic to a suitable "local model".\n\nThis approach works with no
major issues for non-negatively (or non-positively) graded manifolds\, whi
ch is sufficient for most of the applications. However\; if one tries to i
nclude coordinates of both positive and negative degrees\, issues appear o
n several levels. This was addressed recently by M. Fairon by extending th
e local model sheaf. Interestingly\, this modification creates a new subtl
e issue on the level of $\\mathbb{Z}$-graded linear algebra.\n\nThis talk
intends to point out the aforementioned issues and to offer the modificati
ons required to obtain a consistent theory of $\\mathbb{Z}$-graded manifol
ds with coordinates of an arbitrary degree.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Strict deformation quantizations of polynomial Poisson structures\n
by Severin Barmeier (Universität zu Köln) as part of Deformation Quantiz
ation Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nAfter Kontsevich's general existence result f
or formal star products of Poisson manifolds\, the convergence of formal s
tar products is an essential but nontrivial next step in the deformation q
uantization programme. In this talk I will present a combinatorial approac
h to the quantization of polynomial Poisson structures on $\\mathbb{R}^d$
which can be used to obtain star products converging on polynomials. The c
onstruction uses the natural L$_\\infty$ algebra structure on multi-vector
fields obtained by homotopy transfer from the DG Lie algebra structure on
the Hochschild complex and Maurer-Cartan elements can be viewed as a syst
ematic way of deforming the commutativity relations of the polynomial alge
bra. The associated "combinatorial" star product is closely related to the
Gutt star product and it admits a graphical description resembling the gr
aphical description of Kontsevich's universal formula. Finally\, I will gi
ve some examples to illustrate how this star product can be used to obtain
strict deformation quantizations of nonlinear Poisson structures by apply
ing a general framework developed by Stefan Waldmann.\n\nThis talk will be
based on arXiv:2002.10001 joint with Zhengfang Wang and on work in progre
ss joint with Philipp Schmitt.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the equivalence of symplectic capacities\nby Jean Gutt (Institut
de Mathématiques de Toulouse) as part of Deformation Quantization Semina
r\n\n\nAbstract\nAn important problem in symplectic topology is to determi
ne when symplectic embeddings exist\,\nand more generally to classify the
symplectic embeddings between two given domains. Modern work\non this topi
c began with the Gromov nonsqueezing theorem\, which asserts that the ball
symplectically\nembeds into the cylinder if and only if the radius of the
ball is larger than that of the cylinder. Many\nquestions about symplecti
c embeddings remain open\, even for simple examples such as ellipsoids and
\npolydisks. To obtain nontrivial obstructions to the existence of symplec
tic embeddings\, one often\nuses various symplectic capacities. We shall d
iscuss some questions about capacities\, in particular the\nequality of tw
o type of symplectic capacities. This is joint work with V.Ramos.\n
