Tame geometry and transcendence in Hodge theory

Project description

A bold line of inquiry into tame geometry and its relation to Hodge theory

When it comes to the language of high-level mathematics, familiar words take on new meanings, and the lines between algebra and geometry become blurred. Algebraic geometry deals with curves or surfaces that can be represented both as geometric objects and as solutions of algebraic (polynomial) equations, and it has had important impact on physics and quantum theoretical descriptions. Hodge theory is the main tool for analysing the solution sets of algebraic equations over the complex numbers, yet it is not algebraic. Tame geometry may provide insight. EU funding of the TameHodge project will support the investigation of this exciting connection between tame geometry and Hodge theory.
