Recent Trends in Algebraic and Geometric Combinatorics
Over the past four decades, algebraic combinatorics has evolved into an important branch of modern mathematics. Nowadays, it plays an important role in a wide variety of subjects, such as, for instance, Representation Theory, Number Theory, Free Probability, Quantum Field Theory, Statistical Mechanics, Control Theory, Geometric Integration Methods, Lyons' Rough Paths Theory, Percolation Theory, Discrete Geometry, Algebraic Geometry.
The 3-days workshop Recent Trends in Algebraic and Geometric Combinatorics (AlGeCo2013) aims at bringing together leading researchers working in algebraic and geometric combinatorics. The three principal topics are: applications of modern combinatorics in algebra, enumerative combinatorics and combinatorial geometry. The workshop shall provide a platform for discussions around recent progress.
