Central European Time
Budinich Lecture Hall (LB)
Strada Costiera, 11 I - 34151 Trieste (Italy)
The Call for Applications will be open soon

The school will introduce commutative algebra and algebraic geometry in prime characteristics and their relationship with complex algebraic geometry. There have been many important developments in these fields during the last three decades.  There will be four courses of lectures to highlight some of these developments related to vector bundles and tight closure, singularities in prime characteristics, F-signature and Hilbert-Kunz multiplicity and study of singularities via Big Cohen-Macaulay (BCM)-algebras, perfectoid spaces and Frobenius splitting.

  • Vector bundles and tight closure
  • Singularity invariants in positive characteristic
  • Singularities via BCM Algebras
  • F-singularities — applications of characteristic p methods to singularity theory
