Introductory Workshop: Model Theory, Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory
Month: February 2014
Date: February 3--7
Name: Introductory Workshop: Model Theory, Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic whose structural techniques have proven to be remarkably useful in arithmetic geometry and number theory. We will introduce in this workshop some of the main themes of the programme covering such topics as Additive Combinatorics, Algebraic Dynamics, Berkovich Spaces, and the Pink-Zilber Conjectures. Tutorials will be given by both model theorists and experts in the relevant field of application. The workshop will also include "state of the art" lectures on the programme topics, indicating recent results as well as directions for future work.
