Motivic Geometry

  • Led by Professor Paul Arne Østvær (UiO).

The research project aim at reaching decisive results and shape the future research directions in these subjects by bringing together world-leading experts in motivic homotopy theory, affine algebraic geometry and enumerative geometry.


As the pandemic caused the Centre to shut down during the spring semester, CAS has extended the timeframe for the 2019/2020 projects. 

The 2019/2020 project in this category is titled:

Evolvability: A New and Unifying Concept in Evolutionary Biology?

  • Led by Professors Thomas Fredrik Hansen (UiO) and Christophe Pelabon (NTNU).

The research project will evaluate the past 25 years of research in order to understand evolvability as one of the unifying concepts of the "extended synthesis" of evolutionary theory.
