Thanks so much!

Uli Walther (Purdue, walther@math.purdue.edu). We wish to express our THANKS to Wayne Drady and the AMS for all their HELP and SUPPORT, and to MSRI at Berkeley for the much appreciated COSPONSORSHIP of this summer school.

This is one of the 2005 Joint Summer Research Conferences. (Look here for a lot of useful info about these conferences, and Snowbird in general.)

This summer school is intended for graduate students only. The application deadline has passed. Invitation letters for successful applicants should have arrived.

This page is under construction. Please send questions/remarks to walther@math.purdue.edu -- but be patient...

Please note that Snowbird is not at sea level. If you have asthma or altitude sickness you might need to bring medication.

Lecture notes for the first part will be developed by the speakers and they will be distributed before the start of the summer school.

Srikanth Iyengar, University of Nebraska

Graham Leuschke, Syracuse University

Anton Leykin, UI at Chicago

Claudia Miller, Syracuse University

Ezra Miller, University of Minnesota

and the organizers.

The speakers for the conference that makes the second part of the Summer School are expected to be

Markus Brodmann, Universitaet Zuerich

Ragnar-Olaf Buchweitz, University of Toronto

Phillippe Gimenez, Universidad de Valladolid

Gennady Lyubeznik, University of Minnesota

Paul Roberts, University of Utah

Peter Schenzel, Universitaet Halle

Rodney Sharp, University of Sheffield

Ngo Viet Trung, Institute of Mathematics, Hanoi

Keiichi Watanabe, Nihon University

Santiago Zarzuela, Universitat de Barcelona

The talks in this final part are intended to be expository and centered around the main themes of the summer school.

There will be one day of rest, June 25. We will have an excursion that day.
