Mock modular forms in combinatorics and arithmetic geometry

March 8 to March 12, 2010

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Kathrin Bringmann, Ken Ono, and Sander Zwegers

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will focus on mock modular forms as they occur in combinatorics and arithmetic geometry and explore some other potential applications.

In recent years there has been a flurry of activity in the area of mock modular forms. Despite the recent rapid development, many open problems and further applications still need to be addressed. The primary goal of this workshop is to focus on some of the different areas of mathematics and physics that could benefit from the many recent advances in the subject.

Below is a partial list of topics to be discussed during the workshop. The participants are more than welcome to suggest related topics of their interest.

The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.

The deadline to apply for support to participate in this workshop has passed.
