General Information

Zeta and L-functions are the basic example of a family of functions arising in many mathematical fields: number theory, algebraic geometry, group theory, graph theory, dynamical systems, partial differential equations...

The study of zeta and L-functions is transversal to the traditional subdivision into mathematical disciplines: algebra, analysis, topology, geometry, combinatorics are all needed to resolve the arising problems. The most famous mathematical enigma, the Riemann hypothesis, generalized to many zeta functions, is the key to numerous mathematical questions.

The focus of the conference will be on the most recent advances in the study of algebraic varieties and L-functions with a focus on those arising from algebraic geometry. We hope to help the specialists in remote fields, in particular geometers and analytic number theorists to exchange their knowledge and experience.
