Leiden: Workshop norm residue symbols

2-2-2009 - 6-2-2009

During this informal meeting we intend to discuss the state of the art
of algorithms for computing norm residue symbols, global power residue
symbols, and global Artin symbols. Topics of special interest include
the Tate-pairing, Cohen-Lenstra heuristics, and Brauer-Manin
obstructions. We will start our meeting Monday, 2 February, at 9.30am
with an introduction to norm residue symbols and other symbols of
interest. That morning we will also discuss the program of the
remainder of the week. For more information, see

NWO Call for Tenure Track positions

NWO has opened a call for tenure track positions. Proposals for these positions, which include one PhD position for each tenure track position, can be submitted directly to NWO by professors from the 4 mathematics clusters, including Diamant. Diamant professors are warmly encouraged to submit proposals. Read more.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound

A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n.
