The work (currently being refereed) of SHINICHI MOCHIZUKI on inter-universal Teichmüller theory, IUT, also known as arithmetic deformation theory, and its application to famous conjectures in diophantine geometry became publicly available in August 2012. This theory, developed over 20 years, introduces a vast collection of novel ideas, methods and objects. Aspects of the theory extend arithmetic geometry to a non-scheme-theoretic setting and, more generally, have the potential to open new fundamental areas of mathematics.
The main objective of the workshop is to assist mathematicians in their study of IUT.
The workshop will present, via talks of mathematicians from several countries, key principles, concepts, objects and proofs of the theory of Mochizuki and study its relations with existing theories in different areas.
Shinichi Mochizuki will answer questions during skype sessions of the workshop. He also responds directly to emailed questions.
