Show List of Speakers


The topological study of real algebraic varieties originated in work of Harnack, Klein, and Hilbert in the late 19th century on real algebraic plane curves. Current interest involves many different, but interacting topics including real algebraic varieties in higher dimensions, real J-holomorphic curves and real symplectic geometry, enumerative real algebraic geometry, constructions of varieties with prescribed topology, amoebas, and tropical algebraic geometry. The aim of the workshop is to highlight these developments under the general title of Topology and geometry of real algebraic varieties. A (preliminary) list of invited speakers includes:

  • F. Catanese (Bayreuth)
  • A. Eremenko (Purdue)
  • C. Viterbo (Orsay)
  • C. McCrory (Athens, GA)
  • G. Mikhalkin (Salt Lake City, St.Petersburg)
  • S. Orevkov (Toulouse)
  • M. Passare (Stockholm)
  • J. Welschinger (Lyon)

The conference will also include shorter talks by others.
