Ofer Gabber IHES

Arithmetic and Algebraic Geometry

Arithmetic and algebraic geometry cover a broad and central area of mathematics. This conference will focus on a number of areas of important progress over the last three or four years and it will be dedicated to Ofer Gabber.

Ofer Gabber, CNRS Research Director since 1984, was a child prodigy who proved complex conjectures in the early 1980’s. He has continued to do profound work, touching upon practically every area of arithmetic geometry. Ofer’s work is broadly applied today. He is also known for his extreme rigor and reliability, and his capacity to detect any minimal inconsistency. Very generous with his ideas, for thirty years he has been an inspiration for other mathematicians, including some of the very best.

The conference aims at attracting a wide audience where the presence of more experienced mathematicians will be balanced by the one of young talented researchers.
