An opportunity for researchers to broaden their mathematical horizons. This year's theme focuses on aspects of linear algebraic groups and the Cremona group.
AGGITatE 2023: Algebras, Groups, Geometry, Invariants and related Topics at Essex
AGGITatE is an excellent opportunity for early- and mid-career researchers in algebra, geometry, and related areas to broaden their mathematical horizons and establish new collaborative networks. This year's theme focuses on aspects of linear algebraic groups and the Cremona group.
Thanks to our sponsors, the London Mathematical Society, the Foundation Compositio Mathematica, the Department of Mathematical Sciences and Overleaf, we can cover partial expenses of participants based at UK universities (travel and accommodation). Priority will be given to PhD students and early-career mathematicians. If you have such a request, please, indicate so in your registration. Other participants who can find their own support are welcome to come.
ProfessorDepartment of Mathematics, University of York
Michael's work focuses on affine algebraic groups and their interaction with other mathematical structures. In particular, he is interested in Geometric Invariant Theory, Representation Theory and the theory of Spherical Buildings.
PhD studentMathematics and Computer Science, University of Basel
I am interested in birational geometry; my first projects were on real forms on rational surfaces, now I'm studying Coble surfaces, and also dynamical degrees of birational maps.
ProfessorSchool of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh
Ivan is an algebraic geometer, and a bi-rationalist in particular.
LecturerDepartment of Mathematics, Université de Bordeaux
Andrea's interests are in birational geometry, especially Fano varieties and fibrations; Mori fibre spaces and the minimal model program; rationally simply connected varieties; surfaces in positive characteristic; and algebraic subgroups of the Cremona group.
Research FellowDepartment of Mathematics, University of Basque County
Anne's research line is in birational geometry and geometric group theory.
LecturerSchool of Mathematics and Physics, University of Lincoln
Paula's research interests are in asymptotic group theory (in particular arithmetic and analytical properties of zeta functions associated to groups), and twisted conjugacy classes and the R-infinity property of groups.
ProfessorUniversity of Angers
Frédéric is a specialist of real algebraic varieties, in particular their topology and their geometry.
Assistant ProfessorDepartment of Mathematics, Università di Trento
Mima's main research is in the realm of group theory, specialising in p-groups.
ReaderDepartment of Mathematics, University of Manchester
David is a reader of Pure Mathematics. His research is concentrated on various aspects of Lie Theory, including the subgroup structure of algebraic groups, representation and cohomology theory of algebraic groups, and subalgebra structure of modular Lie algebras.
Bernoulli InstructorInstitute of Mathematics, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
Christian’s research lies at the intersection of algebraic geometry, geometric group theory, and dynamics, applying tools from geometric group theory to study Cremona groups.
Full ProfessorInstitut de Mathématique d'Orsay, University of Paris-Saclay
Susanna's research interests are in birational geometry, Cremona groups, algebraic groups and real algebraic geometry.
Teaching AssistantDepartement of Mathematics and Computer Science , University of Poiters
My main area of research is Birational Geometry; more specifically, I have worked on birational relations among Mori fibre spaces via the Sarkisov Program, with applications to Cremona groups.
The workshop will take place at the Colchester Campus of the University of Essex. You can find directions to make your travel arrangements to Colchester. FindYourWay is a useful resource to find your way around the maze of rooms of the University. You can also download the app for Android and Apple devices.
If your accommodation is paid by the organisers, we will be in touch with details.
If you are self-funded, the following are good options for accommodation in Colchester:
All are in the route of buses 62 and 62B which take you directly to Campus in about 20 minutes. You can also walk to campus in 40-60 minutes, depending on the hotel.
