Cremona conference- Basel 2016
A Cremona transformation is a birational transformation of the plane (or more generally of the n-dimensional space). It corresponds to a map given by rational functions that admits an inverse of the same type. These maps have been a subject of study since centuries: the first appearance are in the ancient Greek: inversions and Moebius transformations.The subject has then been really much developped by the italian school in the nineteenth century and then never ceased to interest mathematicians until now. It has also many applications and relations with other topics of mathematics, like number theory, group theory , dynamical systems or hyperbolic geometry. The aim of this conference is to bring together a maximum of people having worked on this during the last decade, and to let young people discover it. Speakers
In the first week (5-9 September 2016), there will be mini-courses introducing the subject, given by
In the second week (12-16 September 2016), we will have research talks. Speakers are:
Schedule Talks: In Basel, Alte Universität, Rheinsprung 9
Basel 4051
Mini-courses - titles and abstracts
Research talks
During the second week, the invited speakers will give research talk of one hour. The title / abstracts will appear some weeks before the conference beginning.
Poster sessions
All participants are welcome to present a poster during the conference. There will be two poster sessions, one in each week with an apéritif. The aim is to present to people the recent work made on Cremona transformations and encourage the discussion around the topic.The posters have to be on A0-size (841 x 1189 mm), portrait (not landscape) or on A1-size and should not contain too much text (include pictures / diagrams, give space...). If you send us the PDF in advance, we can print it for you. We can also help you by giving advice if you are not used to make posters: email us at cremonaconference gmail if you plan to do a poster or have questions about it. Participants which have planned to present a poster (the list can of course grow up): Nasrollah Nejad ABBAS, Fanelli ANDREA, Mohamed BENZERGA, Marcello BERNARDARA, Jérémy BLANC, Alexander DUNCAN, Eric EDO, Ewan JOHNSTONE, Isac HEDÉN, Mattias HEMMIG, Martinez Garcia JESUS, Igor KRYLOV, Stéphane LAMY, Anne LONJOU, Alexandre MARTIN, Alexander PEREPECHKO, Rita RODRÍGUEZ VÁZQUEZ, Immanuel STAMPFLI, Christian URECH, Junyi XIE, Susanna ZIMMERMANN Literature
People that are interested to read before the conference can have a look at the following surveys on Cremona transformations:
A list (maybe not exhaustive, but quite large) of articles on Cremona transformations is available on the webpage of Julie Déserti: click here to see the list. Links to the full-text of the articles are given for most of the texts. Participants
(the third column is 1-2 if the participant come on both weeks, or 1, respectively 2, if he/she comes the first, respectively the second week)We had some partial support for the lodging, available until 1st of June. You can still register by clicking here, but should preferably ask us if you do not have your own funding. Participants of the swiss doctoral program in mathematics will be anyway supported, but please register not too late, if you want us to book the hotel for you. Send an email to cremonaconference gmail com if you have questions regarding the conference. Organisers
