Mini-School on K-Stability

Department of Mathematics

at Stony Brook University

First Biannual Stony Brook Mini-School in Geometry

Friday, December 6, 2013

Aimed at graduate students and postdocs, a series of four introductory lectures will help participants to appreciate recent developments relating stability in algebraic geometry to the existence of canonical metrics.


All lectures will take place at Simons Center for geometry and physics, room 102.

Please register here

How to get here

Directions to Stony Brook and the location of Mathematics department.
If you are driving, please park in a faculty/staff lot, and obtain a visitor permit from the registration desk inside Simons Center.
LIRR train schedule. We recommend the train departing Penn Station at 7.49 am, with a connection at Jamaica at 8.19am, arriving at Stony Brook at 9.43am.


Lunch and coffee will be provided. We have funds to defray modest travel costs (trains or carpooling).
To help us process reimbursement, please pool your expenses by asking one person in a group to buy round-trip tickets for everybody, and give us one receipt for reimbursement (with the names of the others), etc.

Organized by Samuel Grushevsky, Radu Laza, Robert Lazarsfeld, Song Sun.
