Since the groundbreaking works of Calabi and Yau, the complex Monge-Ampere equation is one of the main tools used in agebraic geometry and physics. In recent years, the interplay of analytic and algebraic geometric methods brought important results on collapse and convergence of Calabi-Yau manifolds. The degenerations of Monge-Ampere equations become an important subject in itself, related to extremal metrics and birational geometry. We are planning to focus on the rich interplay between analysis, differential geometry and algebraic geometry related to Monge-Ampere.

The workshop is partially supported by RFBR.
