The Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic consists of the research groups in the area of algebraic geometry, algebraic K-theory, arithmetic geometry and number theory at the University Duisburg-Essen in Essen.

Newly announced positions:

The following positions within the Essen Seminar have recently been announced:

Johannes Sprang joins the Essen Seminar as a junior professor

As of May 1, Dr. Johannes Sprang starts as a junior professor in the Department of Mathematics at Essen. His research focuses on arithmetic geometry and number theory. Before coming to Essen he worked at the University of Regensburg. In this summer term, he already teaches a course on algebraic number theory here in Essen. We are very happy to welcome him in our team.

Spring school on the mod $p$ Langlands correspondence

In the week of April 26 – 30.4., the Research Training Group 2553 will hold a Spring School towards a mod $p$ Langlands correspondence. Christophe Breuil, Florian Herzig, Yongquan Hu, Stefano Morra and Benjamin Schraen will give talks about their very recent results.

Summer school on Hodge theory and Shimura varieties

Canceled due to the corona epidemy.

From August 10 to 14, we will have a Summer school on Hodge theory and Shimura varieties in Essen. Matt Kerr, Andreas Mihatsch and Colleen Robles will teach mini-courses, and we also expect to have a couple of research talks. Registration is open!

Research Training Group 2553 “Symmetries and classifying spaces: analytic, arithmetic and derived”

The German Research Foundation DFG will fund a Research Training Group run by the Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic starting April 2020. The first funding period will run for four and a half years. After an initial phase, eventually 13 positions for PhD students and one postdoc position will be funded. The first 4 positions will be formally announced shortly.

Jasmin Matz accepts offer from the University of Copenhagen

Jun.-Prof. Dr. Jasmin Matz has accepted an offer from the University of Copenhagen and will leave the University of Duisburg-Essen at the end of September. We regret that she will leave Essen, but at the same time congratulate her on her success and wish her all the best for her new position.

ERC Advanced Grant for Prof. Marc Levine

Prof. Marc Levine was awarded an ERC Advanced grant within the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union. In this project, he will develop and investigate refined methods of enumerative geometry, where the results of counting problems are given by a quadratic form rather than a natural number. This yields valuable additional information and a clearer geometric picture of such problems over non-algebraically closed base fields such as the real numbers.Further information.

Dr. Jasmin Matz joins the Essen Seminar as a junior professor

As of April 1, 2019, Dr. Jasmin Matz from Hebrew University at Jerusalem has joined the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Duisburg-Essen as a junior professor. Her area of research is analytic number theory, for instance she works on automorphic representations and the Arthur-Selberg trace formula, topics which have close connections with several of the research groups here. At the Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic, we are very happy for this reinforcement of our team, and heartily welcome her.

Summer school on Motives and Stacks

The summer school Motives and Stacks will take place in Essen from 23rd till 27th of September. Victoria Hoskins, Paul Arne Østvær and David Rydh will give mini-courses.

Workshop on Prismatic Cohomology

In March 2019, we will host a Workshop on Prismatic Cohomology (after Bhatt and Scholze), in the style of the Oberwolfach Arbeitsgemeinschaft (i.e., the participants apply for giving a talk, in order to learn about the topic).

School in Arithmetic Geometry

From September 17 to 21, 2018, a Summer School in Arithmetic Geometry will be held in Essen. Fabrizio Andreatta, Ana Caraiani and Eugen Hellmann will give mini-courses and there will be a series of research talks.

VBAC 2017 in Essen

The conference Vector Bundles on Algebraic Curves 2017 will take place in Essen from 4th till 8th of September. Emanuele Macri and Gonçalo Tabuada will give mini-courses and there will be a series of research talks.

Chatzistamatiou and Nickel join the Essen Seminar with DFG Heisenberg grants

Starting April 1, and May 1, 2017, respectively, Andre Chatzistamatiou and Andreas Nickel join our group with a Heisenberg grant of the German Research Foundation DFG. We are glad that the chose the Essen Seminar as their work place welcome them heartily.
