The summer course on Geometry aims to cover a spectrum of modern geometry as broad as possible, as well their interaction with neighbouring fields such as logic, Lie and number theory and physics

Geometry is the theory of space. "Space” is a multi-faceted concept: it refers equally well to the phase space of a classical mechanical system, the differential-geometrical space of general relativity or the operator-theoretic space of quantum mechanics from physics, as to the internet as a huge graph of connections.
The summer course on Geometry, which is organised by the Utrecht Geometry Centre (http://utrechtgeometrycentre.nl), aims to cover a spectrum of modern Geometry as broad as possible, as well their interaction with neighbouring fields such as logic, Lie and number theory and physics.
