Motives and complex multiplication

Main content

The Theory of Complex Multiplication, termed by David Hilbert as not only the most beautiful part of mathematics but of all science, has fascinated mathematicians for nearly two centuries and continues to be an active area of research.

Summer school 15-19 August 2016, Ascona

The theme of our summer school is the interplay between this classical mathematical theory and the comparatively young Philosophy of Motives.
