Workshop on "Toric geometry and applications"
Mon 18th-Sat 23rd Sep 1995
This workshop is part of the 1995-96 Warwick EPSRC Algebraic Geometry Symposium, and is organised jointly with G.K. Sankaran. The main topics will be toric geometry and its applications in geometry, including C* actions, classification of singularities and flips, and relations with symplectic geometry.
Confirmed or probable participants include: Altmann, Batyrev, Beltrametti, Campana, Ewald, W. Fulton, Yi Hu, Hulek, S. Ishii, Y. Ito, Jurkiewicz, Kirwan, A. Klyachko, Laterveer, Mond, Pfeiffer, Reid, Sankaran, Stevens, V. Ravi, S. Weintraub,
Other invited participants include: R. Morelli, H. Tsuchihashi
Note that the previous week there will be a workshop intended as an introduction to the activities of the Warwick year, with the overall title "Curves, surfaces, 3-folds, ...". The next event of the Warwick year is a period on 3-folds, and a number of participants of the 3-folds activity should be around.
