February 5th – 9th 2018
University of Barcelona
Complex Algebraic Geometry is one of the main areas of research in Pure Mathematics; its roots can be traced back to the work of Euler, Abel and Jacobi, followed by the revolutionary ideas of Riemann, that initiated an incredibly rich and fruitful field of research both in the algebraic setting and in the complex analytic setting. Today Complex Algebraic Geometry, with all its applications and links to neighboring areas as diverse as number theory and theoretical physics, is still the focus of intense research activity. The aim of the conference is to present recent developments in this area of Mathematics.
The conference is meant to honor professor Gian Pietro Pirola on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
