Arithmetic and allied subjects on the banks of the Neva

24-28 November, 2014

Euler International Mathematical Institute, Saint-Petersburg, Russia

This conference will be held at the Euler International Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Saint Petersburg, Russia, on 24-28 November, 2014 (http://www.pdmi.ras.ru/EIMI/).


The conference is a part of the Lame Chair project in mathematics, launched jointly by the Embassy of France in Russia, Hadamard Mathematical Foundation and the Chebyshev Lab at St. Petersburg State University.

Number theory has traditionally played the role of a borderland and meeting point, thanks in part to its need and readiness to use tools from different fields. The last few years have been a particularly productive period in analytic number theory and in what has come to be called additive combinatorics, whose connections to geometric group theory and model theory are only starting to be explored.

Many of the questions involved - expansion, spectral gaps and amenability, for instance - have been studied by researchers focused on the analytical and geometrical side of group theory.

The conference will cover these and other intersections. Its area cuts across traditional boundaries between fields.

The conference is supported by:

"HOME TOWNS" - social investment programme of Gazprom Neft
The Chebyshev Laboratory

Russian Foundation for Basic Research
