This volume contains the proceedings of the
First Workshop “Matemáticos Mexicanos Jóvenes en
el Mundo”, held from August 22–24, 2012, at Centro de
Investigación en Matemáticas (CIMAT) in Guanajuato,
Mexico.

One of the main goals of this meeting was to present different
research directions being pursued by young Mexican mathematicians
based in other countries, such as Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Estonia,
Germany, Spain and the United States, showcasing research lines
currently underrepresented in Mexico.

Featured are survey and research articles in six areas: algebra,
analysis, applied mathematics, geometry, probability and topology.
Their topics range from current developments related to well-known
open problems to novel interactions between pure mathematics and
computer science. Most of the articles provide a panoramic view of the
fields and problems the authors work on, making the book accessible to
advanced graduate students and researchers in mathematics from
different fields.

This book is published in cooperation with Sociedad Matemática Mexicana

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in various areas of mathematics, including higher category theory, homotopy theory, metric geometry, functional analysis, representation theory, and related topics.
