Spring School and Workshop on Polytopes
Spring School Monday & Tuesday
The Spring School is designed for advanced bachelor, master and PhD students. The aim is to prepare the participants in such a way that they can follow the lectures of the subsequent workshop. It consists of three crash courses:
- Geometry of Polytopes, Monday (2x2h), Tim Römer (Osnabrück),
- Random Polytopes, Tuesday (2h), Pierre Calka (Rouen),
- Face Enumeration, Tuesday (2h), Hailun Zheng (Michigan).
Workshop Wednesday to Friday
The Workshop's topics include (but are not limited to)
- face enumeration,
- the study of special classes of polytopes, such as simplicial, balanced, centrally symmetric and flag polytopes,
- high-dimensional aspects and threshold phenomena,
- asymptotic and approximation properties.
The variety of topics is reflected by the list of invited speakers:
- Imre Bárány (Budapest),
- Martin Henk (Berlin),
- Eran Nevo (Jerusalem),
- Isabella Novik (Seattle),
- Matthias Reitzner (Osnabrück),
- Elisabeth Werner (Cleveland).
The principal goal is to bring together researchers having a probabilistic or a non-probabilistic angle on these topics, to exchange ideas and to stimulate new collaborations. Additionaly to invited speakers' talks there will be a limited number of 30 minutes contributed talks. The latter are selected among the registered participants by the organisers.
- Registration for contributed talk: January 7, 2019,
- Notification of contributed speakers: January 11, 2019,
- Registration open untill February 11, 2019.
There is no registration fee. For the participants who want to attend the conference dinner on Thursday evening a small contribution will be collected at the registration desk.
