LIB60BER: Topology of Algebraic Varieties. A Conference in Honor of the 60th Birthday of Anatoly Libgober
The aim of this workshop is to approach Singularity Theory the way Professor Libgober has envisioned it. Algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, differential topology, representation theory, knot theory, mirror symmetry, and combinatorics combine their efforts to study the structure of singular objects.
The conference will take place in Jaca (Huesca, Spain) in the Pyrenees from the 22 to the 26 of June, 2009.
The strategic singular location of this ancient city in the Pyrenees will allow us to enjoy the talks as well as the landscape.
The main topics are:
Topology of singularities and related invariants, braid groups, braid monodromy, hyperplane arrangements, mirror symmetry, mathematical physics, singularities and algebraic geometry, knot theory, and fundamental groups of curve complements.
