The School/Workshop is supported by CIRM-Fondazione Bruno Kessler
(formerly CIRM-ITC), by Dipartimento di
Matematica-Politecnico di Torino and Dipartimento di
Matematica-Università di Roma "Tor Vergata" as part of the joint

cofinanced by Italian MIUR.

Aim of the School.
The School is mainly aimed to Phd students and young researchers in Algebraic Geometry, introducing the participants to research, beginning from a basic level with a view towards the applications and to the most recent results.
L. Manivel. Actions of algebraic groups on algebraic varieties. Prehomogeneous spaces, relations with gradings of Lie algebras, elements of classification. Applications to birational geometry. Relations with homogeneous spaces and their isotropy representations. The Tits-Freudenthal magic square.
G. Ottaviani. Invariants of forms. Classical examples. The two fundamental theorems. Connections with Young tableaux. Computational tricks. Invariants of ordered points on the line as a graphical algebra. Connections with quivers and their invariants.
A more detailed second announcement (containing informations on accomodation, registration and financial supports) will follow probably in February 2012.
