Hyperplane Arrangements: Recent Advances and Open Problems






The theory of hyperplane arrangements is a modern and very active area of research. In the recent years there have been a huge progress this subject. At this CIMPA school, through 6 carefully selected courses, participants will be introduced to various aspects of Hyperplane Arrangements together with the main open questions that are still present in the area.

The school is followed by a 2 days workshop, where most recent progresses in the field will be presented by experts from all over the world. The school’s participants are also encouraged to participate in the workshop. They can take this opportunity to exchange ideas with experts, as well as to approach some concrete and open problems which can be the subject of their research in the future.
