This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the Mori program for Brauer log pairs in dimension three.
The recent proof of the finite generation of the canonical ring is a major milestone in the Mori program for classifying higher dimensional varieties. The framework of the Mori program has been established in many different contexts, such as for log varieties, varieties with group actions, and rather surprisingly, for Brauer log pairs. These pairs arise naturally in the study of maximal orders and generic projective space bundles. The Mori program in the context of Brauer log pairs, which we call Brauer log MMP, has been completed in dimension two. The main focus for this workshop is to extend this work to dimension three and explore some applications.
The main topics for the workshop are
The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.
Space and funding is available for a few more participants. If you would like to participate, please apply by filling out the on-line form no later than March 14, 2014. Applications are open to all, and we especially encourage women, underrepresented minorities, junior mathematicians, and researchers from primarily undergraduate institutions to apply.
Before submitting an application, please read the description of the AIM style of workshop.
