Summer school on Global Differential Geometry

— filed under:

The broad topic of this summer school is Global Differential Geometry, an active area of research at numerous mathematical centers worldwide. More specifically, the courses of this school will include symplectic and Poisson geometry, foliation theory, as well as large scale index theory. Applications in mathematical physics will also be addressed. The selection of topics is tailor-made to begin at a level that is accessible to participants coming from all over Africa as well as Europe, with a basic background in differential geometry, leading them into areas of current research in global differential geometry. Through this event, we also hope to initiate some network building between European and sub-saharan African scientists.
