Shimura Varieties

Date: 20th to 22d June 2016

Leiden University
Snellius B1

The study of Shimura varieties is a challenging yet interesting area within algebraic geometry. Nevertheless, they are rarely treated in a mathematical training; this may be partly due to their involved definition. The current crash course intends to fill this gap. Our focus will be on motivation and examples rather than technical details. We have found four excellent speakers willing to teach: Francesca Bergamaschi, Bas Edixhoven, Arno Kret, and Lenny Taelman.
