Current Programs

  1. Model Theory, Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory

    Organizers: Ehud Hrushovski (Hebrew University), François Loeser (Université de Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie)), David Marker (University of Illinois), Thomas Scanlon (University of California, Berkeley), Sergei Starchenko (University of Notre Dame), LEAD Carol Wood (Wesleyan University)

    The program aims to further the flourishing interaction between model theory and other parts of mathematics, especially number theory and arithmetic geometry. At present the model theoretical tools in use arise primarily from geometric stability theory and o-minimality. Current areas of lively interaction include motivic integration, valued fields, diophantine geometry, and algebraic dynamics.

  2. Algebraic Topology

    Organizers: Vigleik Angeltveit (Australian National University), Andrew Blumberg (University of Texas), Gunnar Carlsson (Stanford University), Teena Gerhardt (Michigan State University), LEAD Michael Hill (University of Virginia), Jacob Lurie (Harvard University)

    Algebraic topology touches almost every branch of modern mathematics. Algebra, geometry, topology, analysis, algebraic geometry, and number theory all influence and in turn are influenced by the methods of algebraic topology. The goals of this 2014 program at MSRI are:

    Bring together algebraic topology researchers from all subdisciplines, reconnecting the pieces of the field

    Identify the fundamental problems and goals in the field, uncovering the broader themes and connections

    Connect young researchers with the field, broadening their perspective and introducing them to the myriad approaches and techniques.
