Conference "Singularities and Arithmetics"

Schedule: Feb. 17 - 20, 2020
Venue: Kawai Hall, Aobayama Campus,Tohoku University (access maps: map1, map2)

Organizing Committee

main organizer: Takehiko Yasuda (Tohoku)
scientific committee: Shunsuke Takagi (Tokyo), Takehiko Yasuda (Tohoku)
local organizers: Mahito Tanno (Tohoku-Osaka), Wataru Kai (Tohoku)

This conference is held from Feb. 17 to 20, 2020 at the Aobayama Campus of Tohoku University. Its main themes are singularities in algebraic geometry and arithmetics. The former includes not only singularities of varieties but also ones of maps so that ramification and discriminants would be within our scope. We hope to bring together researchers working on relevant subjects and encourage interaction of the two fields.

The conference is supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant numbers 18K18710, 18H01112 and 16H06337.

Keywords: singularities in positive and mixed characteristics, ramification theory, discriminants, modular invariant theory
