Summer School on Algebraic and Tropical Geometry
Kaiserslautern, September 7-11, 2015
On the occasion of the 50 year long diplomatic relations between
Germany and Israel, the project
Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO)
was launched. It receives funding from the
Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
and is organized within the
Research in Germany campaign of the BMBF, with the aim
of strengthening the traditionally very good mathematical research
collaborations between the two countries.
consists of two mathematics exhibitions for the general public and a
summer school and a conference mainly for young mathematicians from
Germany and Israel. The summer school will be hosted at the Department
of Mathematics at the University of Kaiserslautern from September 7,
2015 to September 11, 2015 (arrival, September 6; departure,
The programme of the summer school consists of three series of lectures
with accompanying example classes.
The summer school aims at advanced graduate students, PhD
students and young PostDocs interested in the subject. The
participants are supposed to be familiar with the basics of algebraic
geometry, say, in the form of an introductory course on algebraic
Andreas Gathmann (Kaiserslautern)
will give a four lecture mini course on Algebraic and Tropical Moduli Spaces of Curves
Eugenii Shustin (Tel Aviv)
will give a four lecture mini course on Real Enumerative Geometry.
In addition to this there will be a two lecture mini course by
Michael Joswig (Berlin)
on Tropical Combinatorics and Tropical Linear Programming.
