The Eighth Congress of Romanian Mathematicians

June 26 - July 1, 2015, Iasi, Romania

Special session: Geometry and Topology of differentiable manifolds and algebraic varieties

Organizers: Anca Macinic (contact person), Laurentiu Maxim, Stefan Papadima (IMAR)

This Special Session will focus on the interplay between geometry and topology, on possibly singular spaces. We expect that a broad variety of topics will be covered, among (but not limited to) the following:
- real and complex singularities
- twisted Betti numbers and jump loci
- the role of the underlying combinatorics in the study of hypersurface arrangements
- noncommutative geometry
- probabilistic methods in analysis on manifolds
- representation stability patterns
