IAS Workshop 9-13 March 2015: Chow Groups, Motives, and Derived Categories

wain-catsRegistration is now open. The Institute does not offer funding for visitors to this workshop; however, registration is free.

This workshop is part of the topical program “The Topology of Algebraic Varieties” taking place during the 2014-15 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study. One theme of the workshop is the Chow group of algebraic cycles on an algebraic variety, and the related concept of motives. A recent advance is the application of Chow groups to birational geometry, for example showing that very general quartic 3-folds are not stably rational. The workshop also covers derived categories of algebraic varieties, which also have exciting interactions with birational geometry.
