Description

From August 31 to September 6, 2006 there will be a one-week Summer

School and Research Conference on ``K-theory and Noncommutative

Geometry'' in Valladolid, Spain. The field of algebraic K-theory is

rapidly changing, thanks to the recent developments relating it to

motivic cohomology, etale cohomology, C*-algebras, derived categories

and cyclic homology. The field of noncommutative geometry is also

rapidly changing with cyclic homology, C^*-algebras and derived

category techniques playing a leading role. The two subjects have

considerable overlap, as this list shows. Bringing together

international experts in these related fields should result in the

discovery of new connections between these branches of mathematics.

This conference is part of an on-going attempt to link up several different

areas of mathematics undergoing rapid development: algebra, especially its

connections to algebraic geometry via K-theory; functional analysis,

especially operators on objects of geometric interest; and geometry,

especially those non-commuting aspects measured by cyclic homology.

The research conference portion will expose them to the forefront

developments in the subject, and the opportunity for researchers to

interact will advance discovery and enhance partnerships.
