Modern theory of group actions and the special role of finite simple groups

03 June - 07 June 2019

The topic of the summer school is motivated by recent applications of group actions to various questions in algebra, geometry, number theory and computer science which have given rise to the development of new theoretical results as well as algorithms for computer algebra software. The theme is approachable for young researchers via the theory of permutation groups and there are many open questions, both on the theoretical side and with regards to applications.

For more information on the school, see the webpage for the summer school.
