Connections for Women: Model Theory and its interactions with number theory and arithmetic geometry
Month: February 2014
Date: February 10--11
Name: Connections for Women: Model Theory and its interactions with number theory and arithmetic geometry
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
The development of model theory has always been influenced by its potential applications. Recent years have seen a remarkable flowering of that development, with many exciting applications of model theory in number theory and algebraic geometry. The introductory workshop will aim to increase these interactions by exposing the techniques of model theory to the number theorists and algebraic geometers, and the problems of number theory and algebraic geometry to the model theorists. The Connections for Women workshop will focus on presenting current research on the borders of these subjects, with particular emphasis on the contributions of women. In addition, there will be some social occasions to allow young women and men to make connections with established researchers, and a panel discussion addressing the challenges faced by all young researchers, but especially by women, in establishing a career in mathematics.
