Thematic Einstein Semester on

Algebraic Geometry

Varieties, Polyhedra, Computation

Winter Semester 2019/2020


In Berlin in the winter semester 2019/2020 there will be a programme dedicated to algebraic geometry and organised within the framework of the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ and supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin. The semester is devoted to interactions of algebraic geometry with other fields as well as applications with a potential impact from/on algebraic geometric methods.


The special semester features a fall school, and an opening conference and many other activities. Researchers (in particular those in MATH+) who wish to suggest additional activities are welcome to contact one of the organisers.
