Alberta Number Theory Days XV (24w2020)


(University of Calgary)

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Alberta Number Theory Days XV" workshop in Banff from March 22 to 24, 2024.

Number theory is a central and broad area of research with an immense amount of applications to other areas of mathematics and science. It is also an an area of research that is extremely active and diverse. In recent years, there have been significant advances especially in the areas of algebraic and analytic number theory. The subject of number theory may be divided into several sub-disciplines that range from pure mathematics to more applied areas such as computational number theory and mathematical physics. Some of the pure mathematics sub-disciplines are algebraic number theory, arithmetic geometry, analytic number theory, automorphic forms and representation theory. All of these fields are well represented among the Albertan number theorists from Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge and other institutions in the province.

The annual Alberta Number Theory Days allow for the exchange of knowledge. New connections are made and old associations are renewed. It is also an ideal forum for young talent in the Alberta number theory landscape to showcase their work and support them to continue in research. We commit to offering a conference where faculty and students from underrepresented categories in mathematics will be invited to showcase their accomplishments and all will feel comfortable to learn and confront ideas without any prejudice.

The 15th Alberta Number Theory Days is proudly supported by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), the Number Theory Foundation (NTF) and the Banff International Research Station (BIRS).
