There will be a three day workshop on matrix factorizations at Bielefeld University on May 6-8. On the first day, there will be introductory talks by Igor Burban on the representation theory of matrix factorizations, Wolfgang Ebeling on the singularity theory of hypersurfaces, Daniel Murfet on the Buchweitz’s equivalent descriptions of stable derived category, and Ragnar Buchweitz on the theorem of Orlov relating graded maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules to the category of singularities. The next two days will consist of research talks. We hope these will demonstrate the wide range of topics in current mathematical research that relate to matrix factorizations.
For a complete list of speakers, a reference list, and other information on the workshop, see the website for the workshop.
