# Surveys on Recent Developments in Algebraic Geometry

Share this page *Edited by *
*Izzet Coskun; Tommaso de Fernex; Angela Gibney*

The algebraic geometry community has a tradition of running a
summer research institute every ten years. During these influential
meetings a large number of mathematicians from around the world
convene to overview the developments of the past decade and to outline
the most fundamental and far-reaching problems for the next. The
meeting is preceded by a Bootcamp aimed at graduate students and young
researchers. This volume collects ten surveys that grew out of the
Bootcamp, held July 6–10, 2015, at University of Utah, Salt Lake City,
Utah.

These papers give succinct and thorough introductions to some of
the most important and exciting developments in algebraic geometry in
the last decade. Included are descriptions of the striking advances in
the Minimal Model Program, moduli spaces, derived categories,
Bridgeland stability, motivic homotopy theory, methods in
characteristic \(p\) and Hodge theory. Surveys contain many examples,
exercises and open problems, which will make this volume an invaluable
and enduring resource for researchers looking for new directions.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers interested in new directions in algebraic geometry.
