Description

The summer school will revolve around arithmetic aspects of the theory of differential equations. This topic, which can be traced back at least to Gauss's study of hypergeometric functions, was a major driving force of mathematical research in the 19th century. It witnessed a spectacular revival during the next century thanks to the interaction with several seemingly unrelated areas of mathematics, in particular algebraic geometry (Higgs bundles and Simpson’s conjecture), and number theory (Siegel-Shidlovskii Theorem and transcendence theory).
