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 program.
In particular, we will be offering the following tutorials:
1. An Introduction to Stability-Theoretic Techniques, by Pierre Simon.
2. Model Theory and Diophantine Geometry, by Antoine Chambert-Loir, Ya'acov Peterzil, and Anand Pillay.
3. Valued Fields and Berkovich Spaces, by Deirdre Haskell and Martin Hils.
4. Model theory and multiplicative combinatorics, by Lou van den Dries.
In addition to the tutorials there will be several "state of the art" lectures on the program topics, indicating recent results as well as directions for future work. Speakers include Ekaterina Amerik, Ehud Hrushovski, Alice Medvedev, Terence Tao, and Margaret Thomas.
The introductory workshop aims to familiarize graduate students, postdocs, and non-experts to major and new topics of the current program. Though the audience is expected to have a general mathematical background, knowledge of technical terminology and recent findings is not assumed.
To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.
Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.
