Description

Periods are integrals of algebraic differential forms over algebraically-defined domains and are ubiquitous in mathematics and physics. A deep idea, originating with Grothendieck, is that there should be a Galois theory of periods. This general principle provides a unifying approach to several problems in the theory of motives, quantum groups and geometric group theory. This conference will bring together leading experts around this subject and cover topics such as the theory of multiple zeta values, modular forms, and motivic fundamental groups.
