Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok and Higher School of Economics organize The International conference-school on algebraic geometry ''Siberian summer conference: Current developments in Geometry''. It will be held in Novosibirsk State University, 1, Pirogova str., on August 30 - September 3, 2021.

Scientific program consists of mini-courses of invited speakers.


L. Katzarkov (Higher School of Economics, Moscow)
A. Mironov (Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, Novosibirsk)
V. Przyjalkowski (Lomonosov Moscow State University, Higher School of Economics, Steklov Mathematical Institute of RAS, Moscow)
I. Taimanov (Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, Novosibirsk)

Local Organizers:

O. Grishina (Higher School of Economics, Moscow)
V. Davletshina (Novosibirsk State University, Novosibirsk)

The main goal of this conference is to introduce students to new cutting edge directions in Geometry and the ways the research of Laboratory of Mirror Symmetry NRU HSE relates to them.

The following courses will be given.

Charles Doran (University of Alberta, Edmonton). Geometry and moduli of K3 surfaces (online).

If you want to listen to the lectures of Ch. Doran please let us know by e-mail and we will send you an invitation to the lecture.

Andrey Malyutin (PDMI RAS, St. Petersburg). Geometric constructions in knot theory.

Oleg Musin (Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Kharkevich Institute) & Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow; University of Rio Grande Valley, Edinburg).

              Lecture 1: Densest sphere packing and kissing number problems;

             Lecture 2: Optimal packing of congruent circles on spheres and flat tori;

             Lecture 3: Log - optimal spherical configurations.

Denis Osipov (Steklov Mathematical Institute & NRU HSE & NUST MISIS, Moscow).

              Lecture 1: Curves over finite fields, p-adic numbers, Hasse principle;

             Lecture 2: Reducing of a cubic curveto the Weierstrass form, the group law on it, explicit formulas for this law;

             Lecture 3: A counterexample to the Hasse principle, the formulation of the Mordell-Weil theorem, points of finite order.

We hope that this will lead to long term interests in these research directions and life long collaborations.
