ICTP-CIMPA School: AGRA III (Aritmetica, Grupos y Analisis III)
from the 9 - 20 July 2018 in Cordoba, Argentina
to held at the Academia Nacional de Ciencias and at FaMAF


Deadline for requesting participation: 4 MARCH 2018

The area of the School is number theory, broadly understood - analytic, algebraic, combinatiorial, with links to groups and geometry.

All of the course topics lie at thematic intersections.

  • The course on Galois representations will focuse on their connections with modular forms and elliptic curves.
  • The course on arithmetic groups will involve familiarizing students with topics in group theory and modular forms.
  • Equidistribution in a diophantine context will be the main subject of a course.
  • Another lecture series will focus on analysis, combinatorics and discrete geometry.
  • The study of curves over finite fields, and the resulting codes, will allow for an accessible introduction to deep issues in algebraic geometry, with immediate applications.
  • Finally, the course on primes, parity and analysis will combine classical tools and the use of entropy and independence.
The plan is, then, to introduce advanced students to a variety of fields and tools and to notable recent developments.
