Program Type: Graduate or early career program
Program Location: Chicago, Illinois 60637, United States [map]
Subject Area: Algebraic Topology and Algebraic Geometry

Program Description:    

* this map is a best-effort approximation. Open in Google Maps directly.

The workshop will take place June 11--15, 2018. The program title is ``The roots of topology: miracles of algebraic geometry, braids and Hilbert's (still open) 13th problem''.

Abstract: The purpose of this summer school is to explain how algebraic topology can be used to understand phenomena in classical algebraic geometry. There will be 4 minicourses:

1. A crash course on algebraic varieties.

2. Topology, braids and algebraic functions.

3. Miracles of classical algebraic geometry.

4. Resolvent degree and Hilbert's 13th problem.

This summer school is intended for grad students and postdocs. However, exceptional undergrads are encouraged to apply; preference will be given to those who also apply to and are accepted by Chicago's 2018 REU [UCREU]
