Research Training Network in Model Theory
MODNET is an FP6 Marie Curie Research Training Network in Model Theory and its Applications, funded by the European Commission under contract number MRTN-CT-2004-512234 (MODNET). It will run from 1 January 2005 to 31 December 2008.
This project is designed to promote training and research in model theory, a part of mathematical logic dealing with abstract structures (models), historically with connections to other areas of mathematics. In the past decade, model theory has reached a new maturity, leading to striking applications to diophantine geometry, analytic geometry and Lie theory, as well as strong interactions with group theory, representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras, and the study of the p-adics. These developments are recent, and necessitate the training of young researchers in both the sophisticated tools of pure model theory, and in the field where they are likely to be applied.
The training objectives are to:
