2nd Kindai Workshop

Multiple Zeta Values and
Modular Forms

Date: November 8th - 10th, 2024
Venue: Building 31, Kindai University, Osaka, Japan

Description

Multiple zeta values and modular forms are important research subjects that appear in various fields of mathematics and mathematical physics. Since the discovery of mysterious phenomena describing their relationships in the 1990s, there has been significant development in fusion theories, such as multiple Eisenstein series, elliptic multiple zeta values, q-analogues and multiple modular values, aimed at elucidating these phenomena over the past decade. This project aims to promote international exchange and intensive research among young researchers in this field by inviting several researchers from both domestic and international institutions, providing opportunities for a one-week research stay at Kindai University, including a three-day workshop.

In this workshop, we will have invited talks by senior researchers and international presentations by young researchers on topics related to multiple zeta values and modular forms. Besides the talks, we plan to have a speed talk session where we particularly encourage young students (e.g., master's students) to give a short introduction (around 5 minutes) on their current research projects. With this, we want to encourage interaction among the participants.


Notice for Participants

Pre-registration for the workshop is not required. However, if you fall under any of the following categories, please register using the Google Form:

  • Participants who wish to attend the banquet at Izakaya きらくや五十鈴 on November 8th.
  • Participants, especially, of students who would like to give a Speedtalk (due to a high number of applicants, some submissions may not be accepted).
  • Participants who wish to use the on-campus accommodations (the cost ranges 3,000 ~ 5,000 yen per night). Please note that availability is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
