Master class: Around Torelli's theorem for K3 surfaces

Arithmetic, Geometric and Dynamical aspects

October 28-November 1 2013, Institut de Recherche de Mathématique Avancée, Strasbourg

Aims and Scopes

The master classes are aimed at introducing (under)graduate students to current research area in mathematics. The program is oriented to students that start or finish their master degree as well as to Ph.D. students. For previous master classes held in Strasbourg, see here.

The aim of this master class is to give a complete exposition of Torelli's theorem for K3 surfaces and to present some applications of it. It will also include an introduction to hyperkähler manifolds and to the more recent version of Torelli's theorem for hyperkähler manifolds due to Verbitsky.


In addition, "pre-courses" will be organised before the main lectures (on october 25th and 26th). See here for details.


IRMA's building is located in the main campus of Strasbourg University (see the map and the map) . The master classes will be held in the conference room of this building.

Financial support

Financial support for undergraduate and graduate students will be available. We should be able to cover the accomodation expenses, and maybe a limited number of travel expenses. We also encourage all participants to seek financial support for travel from their home institutions.
