RIMS x OIST Jointly-funded Workshop "Interactions of New Trends in Algebraic Geometry and Singularities"
Algebraic Geometry has 400 years history after René Descartes introduced coordinates to geometry. Recently this area is remarkably developing under cooperation with Number Theory, Commutative Algebra, Combinatorics, Representation Theory and so on.
In Algebraic Geometry, Japan is in one of the central position. Three Fields Medalists from Japan; Kunihiko Kodaira, Heisuke Hironaka and Shigefumi Mori contributed the big development of Algebraic Geometry. Nowadays a new generation; like Takehiko Yasuda and Yoshinori Gongyo made remarkable progress in Algebraic Geometry. Because of this broad and quick progress, it became difficult for an algebraic geometer to cover all ideas. On the other hand, it is very important and useful for an algebraic geometer to know many ideas in topics different from ones own.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts of various fields of algebraic geometry who would like to learn different fields from their own and let them have a chance to learn other fields. We try to make the atmosphere very friendly and easy to ask any questions. To this end, it is very nice for all participants stay in a one accommodation and spend time together whole a week.
The topics we take in the workshop are (1) Minimal Model Problem, (2) Hyperplane arrangement and (3) Stacks.
Three main speakers - Yoshinori Gongyo (University of Tokyo), Masahiko Yoshinaga (Hokkaido University) and Takehiko Yasuda (Tohoku University) - will give five courses each. These are all quite new fields and developed very quickly. In the workshop the participants will learn these topics and try to find ways to make use of them for their own researches.
We ask for you understanding that the dates are subject to change due to the the current COVID-19 situation.
