Degenerations in algebraic geometry

August 17 to August 21, 2015

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Brian Osserman and Ravi Vakil

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the study of degeneration techniques in algebraic geometry, in several differing but interrelated contexts. The goal is to study open questions in the field by bringing together experts in adjacent areas, who may be able to suggest new approaches. To more fully explore possible approaches to these problems, the workshop will also include experts in tropical geometry.

The main topics for the workshop are:

Material from the workshop

A list of participants.

The workshop schedule.

A report on the workshop activities.

A list of open problems.
