Thanks to everybody who attended the workshop!
We all had a great time.
The center (co-sponsored with DIMACS) will host a workshop on Gemetric Complexity Theory (GCT), an approach to the P vs. NP and related problems through algebraic geometry and representation theory. The workshop will be organized by Peter Burgisser, Ketan Mulmuley, Milind Sohoni and K.V. Subrahmanyam. There will be a short course on basic GCT on the first two days of the workshop and a few talks on the third day.
Registration for the workshop is free, but it is strongly recommended that the people should register before March 15. The registration form is at the bottom of this post. Some travel money is available for students. Students should use the form below to request support.
All talks will take place in Friends Center, Room 006. The Friends center is adjacent to the computer science department, Princeton University. Its location is shown in the campus map.
