jeunes en arithmétique et variétés algébriques

de GAGA aux feuilletages sur les corps de nombres

program by Jean-Benoît Bost
tatihou island (normandy), 4-8 July 2016

This educational conference, organized on the model of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft in Oberwolfach, is devoted to diverse classical theorems in algebraic and Diophantine geometry, all pertaining to the theme of algebraization. These theorems assert that some “geometric objects” — such as varieties, or vector bundles, or coherent sheaves — defined in some “analytic” or “formal” categories are actually algebraic, under suitable additional conditions.

Arbeitsgemeinschaft à la Française

We plan to revive the tradition of an annual series of conferences in arithmetic geometry based on the model of Oberwolfach's Arbeitsgemeinschaft. They were previously organized by Jean-Benoît Bost and François Loeser from 1995 to 2002 at Luminy. The first editions covered topics such as Euler systems, higher class field theory or modular forms and Galois representations.

The public we have in mind consists mainly of PhD students and early postdocs, with the aim of offering a friendly ambience to learn mathematical subjects that do not necessarily belong to one's own research area. At the end of each edition, the topic for the next one will be voted, and a scientific program will be written in close collaboration with a leading expert. About six months before the conference, participants will apply and the talks will be distributed among them.
