ALGAR: Local-global Principles for Quadratic Forms

when 17 August 2023 - 23 August 2023
language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 EC
fee EUR 150

In 2023, the ALGAR summer school will be dedicated to modern local-global principles for quadratic forms over function fields and their applications to the study of field invariants, such as the u-invariant and the Pythagoras number, and the definability of subrings of fields. Some familiarity with basic quadratic form theory as well as with basic valuation theory will be assumed. The lectures will be accompanied by exercise sessions and a couple of research talks.

Target group

Master students and PhD students in pure mathematics. Also more experienced mathematicians are welcome to participate.
