General information

Number theory is both one of the core areas of mathematics and a crossroads for many other disciplines. Analysis, diophantine geometry and combinatorics, among other areas, have a long history of interaction with number theory; other subjects, such as group theory and ergodic theory, are also developing often surprising connections with the field.

This will be a two-week school, following the lead of the previous two ones: AGRA I in Santiago, Chile, 2012 and AGRA II in Cusco, Peru 2015. The main aim of the series is the development of number theory (in the broadest sense) as an area of research in South America.

The school starts early on July 9 and ends on the evening of July 20 (see the schedule). Participants are expected to arrive on the 8th and leave either at night on the 20th night or else on the 21st.

For prospective participants

While graduate students and young researchers will be the main intended audience of the school, all interested researchers and students are welcome to participate. Our goal is to fully fund all participants from Latin America, after a merit-based selection.

Participants from elsewhere (including developed countries) are encouraged to find funding for travel from their own institutions; we will attempt to cover their local costs.

The language of the school will be Spanish.

People of all genders are encouraged to apply. All will be treated equally.

How to apply
