Automorphisms of Curves |
Organized by Gunther Cornelissen and Frans Oort
(Universiteit
Utrecht, Mathematisch Instituut) The study of symmetries of mathematical
objects is at the very center of mathematical activity. One basic example is
the theory of group actions on algebraic curves, and this field in particular
has witnessed several exciting developments during the last few years. These
have lifted the topic to a new level of sophistication. In this workshop we
will discuss these latest developments and the questions that arise from them,
with a moderately sized group of participants. We hope that this will activate
them to contribute further to this timely subject. Topics include:
deformation theory, lifting to characteristic zero, relation to moduli of
curves, patching method, techniques from fundamental groups, equivariant
families, non-archimedean uniformization, and group theoretic aspects. For scientific information about this
