Real algebraic geometry

Version française

CIMPA-COLOMBIA research school

Villa de Leyva, Colombia, July 13-26, 2014

Report by Erwan Brugallé & Florent Schaffhauser

Report by Mercedes Siles

Number of participants : 56 including 15 women

Real algebraic geometry has greatly expanded its horizon in the past few years, in great part due to the invention of new tools and the use of methods from other fields (complex algebraic geometry, tropical geometry, symplectic geometry, algebraic topology, combinatorics, etc.). The goal of this school is to present several of these aspects through 5 courses of 5 hours each. The school will end with a 3-day conference, destined to give the students the widest possible and most up-to-date vision on real algebraic geometry.

An important objective for this school is to foster interaction and exchange among Latin-American participants and experienced researchers in the field of real algebraic geometry and its applications. We hope that this school will help consolidate scientific collaboration between participants.
