Winter School and Conference
University and Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, Bonn (Germany)
winter school : 2 - 6 January, 2008
conference : 7 - 11 January, 2008
The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers interested in
moduli spaces of geometric, analytic or algebraic structures. Since they
occur in different branches of mathematics, the techniques tend to differ,
but there are nevertheless unifying questions, and solutions crossing
borders.The conference can be a plattform for the productive exchange of ideas. The
speakers will be asked for talks accessible to the researches and students
from different branches of mathematics.
The winter school prior to the conference intends to
introduce doctoral students and young researchers by a series of
mini-courses to the main topics and themes of the conference.
There will be mini-courses by the following speakers:
- Carl-Friedrich Bödigheimer (U Bonn) :
Hilbert uniformization of Riemann surfaces
- Carel Faber (KTH Stockholm) :
Intersection theory of moduli spaces
- Barbara Fantechi (SISSA Trieste) :
- Yuri Manin (MPI Bonn) :
Deformation and rigidity in commutative and non-commutative geometry
- Ulrike Tillmann (Oxford) :
Moduli Spaces in Topology
The following invited speakers have agreed to contribute with lectures:
- Lucia Caporaso
- Ralph Cohen
- Carel Faber
- Barbara Fantechi
- Gavril Farkas
- Ezra Getzler
- Veronique Godin
- Richard Hain
