Sept 30 – Oct 04 2019: Fall School on Algebraic Geometry – Varieties, Polyhedra, Computation

Events - Fall-School-2019

The Fall School officially opens the 2nd Thematic Einstein Semester on Algebraic Geometry.


The school takes place:


September 30 to October 04, 2019


Arnimallee 3 (Room SR 019 and SR 024)


Campus of the Freie Universität Berlin


The Minicourses are given by:


Greg Blekherman (Georgia Tech) – Convex and Algebraic Geometry of Sums of Squares on Varieties

Dawei Chen (Boston College) – Moduli of differentials and Teichmüller dynamics

Giorgio Ottaviani (University of Florence) – Tensor Rank and Complexity

Bernd Sturmfels (MPI Leipzig/Berkeley) – D-Modules and Holonomic Functions

The school is organized by:


Daniele Agostini (HU Berlin), Thomas Krämer (HU Berlin), Marta Panizzut (TU Berlin), and Rainer Sinn (FU Berlin).


Further information and a timetable can be found here.


The current TES is devoted to the study of algebraic geometry and of its applications. Over the past decade, algebraic geometry has found applications in computer science, biology, and engineering, in optimization and statistics. There has been dramatic progress in our ability to practically solve polynomial systems numerically – with Berlin playing a leading role.

The organizers of the 2nd TES, Peter Bürgisser (TU Berlin), Gavril Farkas (HU Berlin) and Christian Haase (FU Berlin), invite you to help find out what algebraic geometry can do for you and what you can do for algebraic geometry.
