Periods, Motives and Differential equations: between Arithmetic and Geometry

Monday, April 6, 2020 (All day) to Friday, April 10, 2020 (All day)

Periods occur in various branches of mathematics and as the title of our conference indicates, their study intertwines arithmetic, Diophantine analysis, differential equations, and algebraic geometry. Many interesting results have been proved in recent years and many challenging problems on periods are still open. The aim of our conference is to bring together specialists who cover all these different points of view and their ramifications, with special attention towards possible applications to broader areas of the techniques developed in the study of periods and their realizations.

Yves André has contributed in many ways to this ongoing adventure and this conference will not only be the opportunity to listen to a broad range of recent developments in mathematics around the topic of periods, but also to celebrate his 60th birthday.
