Thematic Einstein Semester on

Algebraic Geometry

Varieties, Polyhedra, Computation

Winter Semester 2019/2020

PhD Students and Postdocs Seminars

This is the webpage of the three PhD students and postdocs meetings of the thematic Einstein semester Algebraic Geometry, which is devoted to the study of algebraic geometry and of its applications and is organised by Peter Bürgisser (TU Berlin), Gavril Farkas (HU Berlin) and Christian Haase (FU Berlin).

The idea of these three meetings is to foster discussions among young people in Berlin, especially across the three Universities, and more generally among everyone interested in "Varieties, Polyhedra, Computation". During the meetings there will be 20 minute talks given by the participants on the topic "my most interesting problem at the moment".
