GANT Winter School draft schedule

The first draft of a schedule for the GANT Winter School, co-organized by Ph. Michel and myself from Jan. 18 to 28, 2011, at the Bernoulli Center of EPF Lausanne (or, as we like to say here in Zürich, ETH Lausanne) is now available. For the moment, it is found on Google Calendar to accomodate possible tweaks, but a downloadable PDF will also be produced soon for offline convenience. The names of the courses can easily be correlated with those on the updated poster; for convenience, here is the list (in chronological order of appearance during the school):

  • “Automorphic forms” — “Modular forms, automorphics forms and automorphic representations”, E. Lapid and Ph. Michel
  • “Sieve methods” — “Sieve methods”, É. Fouvry and myself
  • “Growth and expansion in groups” — “Sum-product phenomena, expansion in groups and applications”, H. Helfgott and P. Varjú
  • “Sato-Tate”: “La conjecture de Sato-Tate” — J.-P. Serre
  • “Spectral and ergodic methods” — “Point counting on homogeneous varieties: spectral and ergodic-theoretic methods”, M. Einsiedler and S. Mozes
  • “Point counting on algebraic varieties” — “Point counting on algebraic varieties and analytic number theory”, T. Browning and R. de la Bretèche

We will also provide abstracts of the courses fairly soon…

(By the way, does anyone know which — if any — URL incantation can force the calendar link to open on the correct date in 5-day-week-display mode?)

  1. You can get it to open in 7-day-week mode by adding a parameter “dates” in the form “YYYYMMDD/YYYYMMDD” where the first date is the start and the second is the end, as well as a parameter “mode” which is “week”. Here’s an example link that should work:

    I found this by searching for [Google calendar URL parameters]. I found the “dates” parameter quickly, but then couldn’t find any more. My eventual search for [google calendar “dates” src color “week”] found the “mode” parameter. (The query there includes some other allowed parameters.)

    I’ll see if I can get a 5-day-week working in a second.
