I am happy to report that to celebrate Alain Connes' 70th birthday, 3 conferences on noncommutative geometry and its interactions with different fields are planned to take place in Shanghai, China. Students, postdocs, young faculty and all those interested in the subject are encouraged to participate. Please check the Conference webpage for more details.

I view blog writing as a great opportunity to reach out to members of the mathematics community and especially the younger members; so in this sense blog writing is, for me, very similar to writing for Math Reviews. I have enjoyed doing both for many years (and many many years for MR!). Recently I wrote a review for MR on the paper ``Twisted characteristic p zeta functions'' http://noncommutativegeometry.blogspot.com/2017/01/gamma-functions-and-nonarchimedean.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (David Goss)0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6912603287930240451.post-4574566954952987504Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:43:00 +00002016-07-24T18:43:17.791+00:00A motivic product formulaThe classical product formula for number fields is a fundamental tool in arithmetic. In 1993, Pierre Colmez published a truly inspired generalization of this to the case of Grothendieck's motives. In turn, this spring Urs Hartl and Rajneesh Kumar Singh put an equally inspired manuscript on the arXiv devoted to translating Colmez into the theory of Drinfeld modules and the like.

classical L-series. Years ago, I came up with a simple characterization of functional equations basically using only complex conjugation. This point being that, via a canonical change of variables (going back to Riemann), such L-series are, up to a nonzero scalar, given by real power series with the http://noncommutativegeometry.blogspot.com/2016/06/what-is-functional-equation.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (David Goss)0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6912603287930240451.post-2967166869306899905Sat, 26 Mar 2016 23:33:00 +00002016-03-26T23:41:53.496+00:00An indirect consequence of the famous Lucas congruence...So, in the course of function field arithmetic, one runs into the binomial coefficients (like one does most everywhere in mathematics); or rather the coefficients modulo a prime p. The primary result about binomial coefficients modulo p is of course the congruence of Lucas. In function field arithmetic
one seems to be unable to avoid the group obtained by permuting p-adic (or q-adic) coefficientshttp://noncommutativegeometry.blogspot.com/2016/03/an-indirect-consequence-of-famous-lucas.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (David Goss)0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6912603287930240451.post-4082701438425790031Sun, 22 Nov 2015 20:51:00 +00002015-12-11T16:41:57.120+00:00Review of "Arithmetic of characteristic p special L-values" by B.

The analogy with classical theory is clear throughout the paper, as well as some potentially interesting differences; these results bode very well for the future of the subject.

Last week we (Chamseddine-Connes-van Suijlekom) posted a preprint on grand unification in the spectral Pati–Salam model which I summarize here (and here).
The paper builds on two recent discoveries in the noncommutative geometry approach to particle physics: we showed
how to obtain inner fluctuations of the metric without having to
assume the order one condition on the Dirac operator. http://noncommutativegeometry.blogspot.com/2015/08/grand-unification-in-spectral-pati.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (Walter)0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6912603287930240451.post-4236613683236361490Sat, 18 Jul 2015 22:26:00 +00002015-07-18T22:26:54.789+00:00Uffe HaagerupUffe Haagerup was a wonderful man, with a perfect kindness and openness of mind, and a mathematician of incredible power and insight.
His whole career is a succession of amazing achievements and of decisive and extremely influential contributions to the field of operator algebras, C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras.
His first work (1973-80) concerned the theory of weights and more generally http://noncommutativegeometry.blogspot.com/2015/07/uffe-haagerup.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (Alain Connes)1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6912603287930240451.post-6203938698083999768Sat, 18 Jul 2015 22:25:00 +00002015-07-18T22:27:51.872+00:00Daniel KastlerDaniel Kastler played for many many years a key role as a leading Mathematical Physicist in developing Algebraic Quantum Field Theory. He laid the foundations of the subject as the famous
"Haag-Kastler" axioms in his joint paper with Rudolf Haag in 1964. He gathered around him, in Bandol, a whole international school of mathematicians and physicists.

Daniel Kastler died on July 4-th in his house in Bandol.
Uffe Haagerup died on July 5-th in a tragic accident while swimming near his summer house in Denmark.
I will write on each of them separately.

So this post is a bit of an experiment. My friends at Math Reviews recently sent me a really interesting Math. Z. paper by Gebhard Boeckle.

A new website on noncommutative geometry has been created, connected to the workshop Noncommutative Geometry and Particle Physics organized at the Lorentz Centre in Leiden in October 2013.

On the one hand, they are obviously scalars in terms of the fields of definitions of varieties etc.; yet, on the other hand, they are also operators, as in the associated Z-action on multiplicative groups (or the groups of rational points of abelian varieties etc.).
