SUP-symposium May 27th and 28th 2004

As part of the Strategic University Programme in Pure Matemathics (SUPREMA), there was a joint workshop for the research groups in algebra, analysis and geometry/topology on Thursday May 27th and Friday May 28th at Thorbjørnrud Hotel at Jevnaker, near Hadeland Glassverk, 67 km north of Oslo.

Three series of lectures aimed at a broad mathematical audience were given by:

Franc Forstneric (University of Ljubljana):
Holomorphic and Algebraic Mappings from Affine Manifolds
Nigel Higson (Pennsylvania State University):
Tangent Groupoids and Index Theory
Wolfgang Lück (Universität Münster):
A Panorama on L2-Invariants and Their Applications

All lectures were in the Auditorium. The joint departure was Thursday May 27th at 09.00, from the crossing of Slemdalsveien, Harald Hårfagres gate and Valkyriegata, near the Taxi station, right next to the Majorstuen T-bane stop.
