Research Training Group 2553 “Symmetries and classifying spaces: analytic, arithmetic and derived”
The German Research Foundation DFG will fund a Research Training Group run by the Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic starting April 2020. The first funding period will run for four and a half years. After an initial phase, eventually 13 positions for PhD students and one postdoc position will be funded. The first 4 positions will be formally announced shortly.
Jasmin Matz accepts offer from the University of Copenhagen
Jun.-Prof. Dr. Jasmin Matz has accepted an offer from the University of Copenhagen and will leave the University of Duisburg-Essen at the end of September. We regret that she will leave Essen, but at the same time congratulate her on her success and wish her all the best for her new position.
ERC Advanced Grant for Prof. Marc Levine
Prof. Marc Levine was awarded an ERC Advanced grant within the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union. In this project, he will develop and investigate refined methods of enumerative geometry, where the results of counting problems are given by a quadratic form rather than a natural number. This yields valuable additional information and a clearer geometric picture of such problems over non-algebraically closed base fields such as the real numbers.Further information.
Dr. Jasmin Matz joins the Essen Seminar as a junior professor
As of April 1, 2019, Dr. Jasmin Matz from Hebrew University at Jerusalem has joined the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Duisburg-Essen as a junior professor. Her area of research is analytic number theory, for instance she works on automorphic representations and the Arthur-Selberg trace formula, topics which have close connections with several of the research groups here. At the Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic, we are very happy for this reinforcement of our team, and heartily welcome her.
Summer school on Motives and Stacks
The summer school Motives and Stacks will take place in Essen from 23rd till 27th of September. Victoria Hoskins, Paul Arne Østvær and David Rydh will give mini-courses.
Workshop on Prismatic Cohomology
In March 2019, we will host a Workshop on Prismatic Cohomology (after Bhatt and Scholze), in the style of the Oberwolfach Arbeitsgemeinschaft (i.e., the participants apply for giving a talk, in order to learn about the topic).
School in Arithmetic Geometry
From September 17 to 21, 2018, a Summer School in Arithmetic Geometry will be held in Essen. Fabrizio Andreatta, Ana Caraiani and Eugen Hellmann will give mini-courses and there will be a series of research talks.
VBAC 2017 in Essen
The conference Vector Bundles on Algebraic Curves 2017 will take place in Essen from 4th till 8th of September. Emanuele Macri and Gonçalo Tabuada will give mini-courses and there will be a series of research talks.
