Deadline: February 1, 2017
Note: Attendance is by invitation only.
Matt Baker, Georgia Institute of Technology
Sam Payne, Yale University
Organized by Matthew Baker (Georgia Tech) and Sam Payne (Yale University), the symposium will focus on setting a clear agenda for future developments in the related fields of tropical and non-Archimedean analytic geometry. One of the meeting goals is to produce high quality expository material presenting the methods, results and ambitions of these active research areas. Another is to identify problems in other fields of mathematics that could be amenable to tropical and non-Archimedean analytic methods and establish new rigorous links with those neighboring fields.
- Combinatorial and tropical analogues of Hodge theory
- Refined curve counting, tropical geometry, and motivic invariants
- Wild coverings of curves and lifting problems for algebraic and tropical curves
- Rational points on curves, p-adic integration, and relations with tropical geometry
If you plan on taking part in the hike to Partnach Gorge we advise you to wear hiking boots, or even better, light mountain boots, warm clothing (e.g. a sweater), sun protection (e.g. light cap) and take waterproofs (e.g. raincoat or umbrella) with you. Bringing along a small backpack or satchel in which to carry your water, camera and other items may also be useful to you.
Participants arriving via plane will arrive via Munich International Airport (MUC).
All participants are required to arrive on Sunday prior to the meeting’s start and attend the entire week. No accommodations will be made for partial participation.
