Researchers at the center Geometry at the Frontier obtains MATH AmSud grant in joint with Universities of Argentina, Brazil and France.
The project will be funded for two years and will allow our research group to strengthen international collaboration between established South American research groups in complex, algebraic and differential geometry with France.
MATH-AmSud is an initiative of French cooperation and its partners in countries in South America. Its objective is to promote and strengthen collaboration and the creation of research and development in the field of Mathematics, through researcher mobility, in order to implement joint research projects.
The grant entitled "Algebraic and geometric aspects of varieties and manifolds" is led by the research teams: Center Geometry at the Frontier, University of La Frontera (Chile), Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Université de Poitiers (France).
The main goals of this project are to promote networks, strengthen collaboration and create joint research in geometry by means of international mobility of students and researchers in Argentina, Chile, Brazil and France. This proposal intends to deepen the relationship between established South American research groups in complex, algebraic and differential geometry with France.
This project is strongly aimed at creating international networks, with a special focus on students. For that, During the project execution period, four scientific activities will be carried out, each one organized by a local team. Concretely:
1. First school aimed to students in Brazil (June 2021)
2. Research workshop in France (December 2021)
1. Second school aimed to students in Argentina (June 2022)
2. Final research conference in Chile (October 2022).
Other institutions that will participate in this project are: University of Chile (Chile); National University of Córdoba (Argentina) and Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IMPA - Brazil).
