Invariant Theory and its
Interactions with Related Fields
March 23 – 29, 2003
Mathematisches Institut der Universität Göttingen
Göttingen, Germany

ingo2003 was an initiative of research groups in Aberdeen, Manchester, and Göttingen working in the areas of algebraic topology, representation theory, and commutative algebra. The central theme of this conference was invariant theory, but the cross connections with other fields have been adequately represented.

Special topics and tools such as Frobenius homomorphisms, Steenrod operations, representation theory, Macaulay duals, differential Galois theory, as well as other related fields have found their place at ingo2003 .

The conference was addressed to the need for European mathematicians from a diverse range of research areas to exchange ideas, and learned new techniques that may point the way for future work. Young researchers and women were particularly encouraged to actively take part.
