Research Center - Geometry at the Frontier



May 31, 2021

Great success on the South-North Latin American Workshop on Geometry I.

During the 26th, 27th and 28th of May 2021, successfully brought the first workshop "South-North Latin American Workshop on Geometry", organized by Research Center "Geometry at the Frontier" (UFRO, Chile) and the Centro de Investigación Matemática (CIMAT, México), under an International Cooperation Network project financed by ANID.

The activity had more than 100 attendees, including graduate students and academics, mainly from Chile, Ecuador and Mexico. During these three days, 9 prominent Chilean and foreign speakers participated, who addressed topics related to complex geometry, to publicize their progress and results of their research.


▪️ PhD. Rubí E. Rodríguez (Universidad de La Frontera)
Talk: Actions and symmetries: classic and recent results.

▪️ PhD. Pedro Montero (Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María)
Talk: Introduction to Ulrich bundles and some recent results in small dimension.

▪️ PhD. Robert Auffarth (Universidad de Chile)
Talk: Smooth ratios of complex tori by finite groups.

▪️ PhD. Angela Ortega (Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany)
Talk: Klein Covers on Gender Curves 2.

▪️ PhD. César Lozano Huerta (UNAM, Oaxaca, Mexico)
Talk: Birational geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points in the plane.

▪️ PhD. Sebastián Reyes Carocca (Universidad de La Frontera)
Talk: Regular coverings of degree pq of the projective line.

▪️ PhD. Paola Comparin (Universidad de La Frontera)
Talk: Quasismooth hyper surfaces in toric varieties.

▪️ PhD. Luis Núñez Betancourt (CIMAT Guanajuato, Mexico)
Talk: Differential powers and singularities.

▪️ PhD. Leticia Brambila-Paz (CIMAT, Guanajuato, Mexico)
Talk: Coherent systems


This grant has made it possible to strengthen the development of research in "Geometry" to southern Chile and will of course continue to open new spaces for scientific collaboration.

We thank you to all who participated of this workshop!
