Both number theory and geometry have a lot of common algorithmic tasks, albeit hidden behind different languanges. For example, while geometers compute normalizations, number theorists are interested in integral closures or maximal orders (if they come from representation theory). As diverse as the languages are the techniques that are traditionally applied—although recently the algorithms seem to converge.

In this workshop we aim to bring together experts in (algebraic) geometry and algorithmic number theory in order to faciliate a strong exchange of ideas. In particular, techniques employed in the computation of normalization or integral closures as well as ideal(class) and divisor(class) methods will be discussed.

The workshop is to be held at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany.


You will (soon) find a poster for the workshop here.
