This (by invitation only) meeting gathers together researchers from three different communities: approximation theorists, workers in GKM theory and group actions, and algebraic geometers. They have all encountered -sometimes unknowingly- multivariate splines, and the workshop's aim is to foster collaborations among them in a beautiful setting such as the Palazzone di Cortona (Arezzo, Italy).
Conference topics include:
Homological techniques for investigating spline properties
Dimension of spline spaces on triangular, tetrahedral and polyhedral partitions
Extension of multivariate polynomial splines
Splines in representation theory and topology via GKM-theory.
Schubert calculus for spline investigation
