MULTIPLIER IDEALS, TEST IDEALS AND BERNSTEIN-SATO POLYNOMIALS

BARCELONA, September 7-10, 2015

This meeting is mainly intended for graduate students and postdocs working on algebraic geometry, singularities or commutative algebra. It will focus on the theory of Multiplier ideals, Test ideals and Bernstein-Sato polynomials with special regard to the interplay between them.

There will be three mini-courses given by experts on the topics of the workshop. Moreover we plan on having some talks given by participants that are developing their research in this area.

Mini-Courses:

·Nero Budur (KU Leuven): Bernstein-Sato polynomials

·Karl Schwede (U. Utah): Test Ideals

·Kevin Tucker (UIC): Multiplier Ideals

The Third EACA International School on Computer Algebra and its Applications will take place at the Faculty of Mathematics and IMUS (University Institute of Mathematics Research) of the University of Seville (Spain) on January 18th-21th, 2016.

It is an activity of the Spanish network Red-EACA, Red Temática de Cálculo Simbólico, Álgebra Computacional y Aplicaciones, partially supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, under the Acciones de Dinamización “Redes de Excelencia” MTM2014-56142-REDT.

The First and Second EACA School on Computer Algebra and its Applications were held in Tenerife (Canary Islands) in 2011 and in Valladolid in 2013.

This School intends to provide an opportunity for young researchers (namely, Master and PhD students and Postdocs) in Computer Algebra and Symbolic Computation or in its Applications from all over the world, to learn from three internationally recognized lecturers, about recent developments on the area. The School also welcomes experienced researchers interested in these topics.

The School will consist on three courses (lectures and tutorials) by experts plus short contributed talks and poster presentations by young researchers. Submissions will be supervised by the School’s Scientific Committee.

The Fields Institute in Toronto, Ontario, will host a semester-long program in Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry in Fall 2016.

This semester-long program will focus on the topics in algebraic geometry with deep combinatorial connections. These will include, but are not limited to, Hilbert schemes, moduli spaces, Okounkov bodies, Schubert varieties, toric varieties, and tropical geometry.

There will be three programmatic workshops: an introductory workshop in August, a workshop on “Convexity in Algebraic Geometry” in October, and a workshop on “Combinatorial Moduli Spaces and Intersection Theory” in December. There will also be a graduate summer school in Summer 2016.

Applications for long-term visiting positions will be due in December 2015.

More information will be available on the webpage for the program.
