Indo European Collaboration on Moduli Spaces

Moduli spaces are basic and central objects that emerge in the most natural classification problems in geometry. Their importance has been emphasized over the years due to the relation of these spaces with areas of mathematics so diverse as algebraic geometry, differential geometry, topology, arithmetic geometry, algebra, global analysis and, perhaps more surprisingly, with theoretical physics.

The MODULI IRSES project

The main objective of this project is to establish new collaborations and reinforce existing collaborations between Europe and India in the field of moduli spaces, as well as training young researches. This will be done through the exchange of both experienced and early stage researchers, and the organization of conferences, specialized workshops and schools.

The project is a Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (irses) project in the 7th European Framework Program, with project nº 612534.

It will run from January 1, 2014 until December 31, 2017.

Project structure

The project is centered around the following areas of this field:

  1. moduli spaces and geometric structures.
  2. moduli spaces and physics.
  3. moduli spaces and arithmetic geometry.

Funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme
