EMS Summer School with support of CIRM (Trento)
Curves and Surfaces
A History of Shapes
Hotel Bellavista - Levico Terme, Italy | September 2 - 6, 2019
This school is inspired by the work of Guido Castelnuovo and Federigo Enriques, two of the main protagonists of the so-called Italian school of Algebraic Geometry, who established, between the 19th and the 20th century the classification of algebraic surfaces and introduced powerful ideas and tools to study algebraic curves. We want to explore the huge heritage of these mathematicians of the past and connect it to contemporary mathematical research.
We will have three mini-courses given by experts:
by Laurent Busé (Inria, FR)
by Fabrizio Catanese (U. Bayreuth, GE)
by Elisa Postinghel (U. Loughborough, UK)
Moreover, we will have exercise sessions, reading of original literature, software tutorials, and more!
