The 29th meeting of Ankara-Istanbul Algebraic Geometry & Number Theory Meetings will take place at Bilkent University on 1st December 2018 Saturday.
The Ankara-Istanbul Algebraic Geometry & Number Theory Meetings aim to bring together people working on algebraic geometry, number theory and related areas in Turkey. During each academic year, monthly meetings are planned in Ankara and Istanbul alternately (and possibly other cities in the future). We hope that these meetings will facilitate communication and collaboration among researchers in the field of algebraic geometry / number theory in Turkey.
Program of this week’s meeting is as follows:
Date: 1 December 2018 Saturday
Venue: Bilkent University, Faculty of Science Building-A, first floor, Room SA-141
13:30 Tea and Cookies
14:00-15:00 A connection between knot theory and enumerative geometry motivated by (topological) string theory, Can Kozcaz – Boğaziçi Physics
15:00- 15:30 Tea Break
15:30-16:30 Random Algebraic Curves, Özgür Kişisel, ODTÜ Mathematics
16:30-17:00 Tea Break
17:00-18:00 Rational Points on Curves over Finite Fields, Alp Bassa – Boğaziçi Mathematics
Abstracts of these lecture series can be found on the conference main page: http://web0.boun.edu.tr/alp.bassa/ankaraistanbul/.
There will be a limited amount of financial support for students, provided by the MAD program of Turkish Mathematical Society. We kindly ask the students who would like to benefit from this support to contact Özgür Kişisel – firstname.lastname@example.org or Alp Bassa email@example.com before purchasing their tickets since there are some details about documentation that needs to be met.
