Masterclass in Condensed Mathematics
University of Copenhagen, 9 - 13 November 2020
The course will present the "Condensed mathematics" currently being
developed by Dustin Clausen and Peter Scholze. This theory holds
the promise of vastly expanding the reach of geometrical and
analytical methods in a broad framework that, in addition to p-adic
geometry, includes complex geometry and analysis. Such a unification
is entirely new and may well supply the geometrical underpinning to
make it possible to attack some of the most important conjectures in

The conference/masterclass will take place at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. See detailed instructions on how to reach Copenhagen and the conference venue.
Tickets and passes for public transportation can be bought at the Copenhagen Airport and every train or metro station. You can find the DSB ticket office on your right-hand side as soon as you come out of the arrival area of the airport. DSB has an agreement with 7-Eleven, so many of their shops double as selling points for public transportation.
A journey planner in English is available.

Graduate students and other early career researchers can apply for financial support to partly cover local expenses. If you wish to apply for support, please indicate this on the registration form. The support should be roughly DKK 500 per day, at most DKK 2500 in total.
We kindly ask the participants to arrange their own accommodation.
We recommend Hotel 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers rooms with a kitchen. Other inexpensive alternatives are CabInn, which has several locations in Copenhagen: the Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandivania (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most convenient locations; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department. Somewhat more expensive – and still recommended – options are Hotel Nora and Ibsen's Hotel.
The registration form is available here. The deadline for registration is 30 September 2020.
