The elucidation of the way in which the additive and multiplicative structure of the integers are intertwined with one another is one of the most important and central themes in number theory. In August 2012, Shinichi Mochizuki (the proposer and chief organizer of the present RIMS Research Project) released preprints of a series of papers concerning "Inter-universal Teichmüller Theory", a theory that constitutes an important advance with regard to elucidating this intertwining. Moreover, the proof of the "ABC Conjecture", which follows as a consequence of the theory, attracted worldwide attention.
The present RIMS Research Project seeks to bring together various researchers not only from the "inter-universal Teichmüller theory community", but also researchers interested in various forms of mathematics related to inter-universal Teichmüller theory, and to provide all such researchers an opportunity to engage in lively discussions concerning the various developments.
