Frontiers of Nevanlinna Theory 4:
Nevanlinna theory and number theory

18-20 June 2012

This is the final in a series of four workshops on the Frontiers of Nevanlinna Theory to take place at University College London in 2011-2012. This workshop will concentrate on the exciting connections and formal similarities between Nevanlinna theory (value distribution of meromorphic functions) and number theory (especially Diophantine approximation).

    Arrival in London


    Most participants are staying in either the Imperial Hotel or the Melia White House. UCL has an official list of hotels in the area. All of the London hotels in the Imperial Group are close to UCL.

    Funding for UK PhD students

    The London Mathematical Society has provided special funding for the participation of UK PhD students. Please contact me as soon as possible if you would like to be considered.

    Childcare Supplementary Grant Scheme

    The London Mathematical Society believes that all parents working in mathematics should be able to attend conferences/research meetings without being hindered by childcare costs and thereby administers a Childcare Supplementary Grant Scheme.
