      The school gives an ideal platform for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and early-career mathematicians to learn the basics of differential geometry in close connection with recent breakthrough developments. Concrete topics include Kähler geometry, Ricci curvature, geometric convergence, and minimal surfaces.

      Differential geometry is among the most important fields in mathematics and physics. Indeed, J. Douglas was awarded the first Fields Medal for his remarkable contribution to the study of minimal surfaces in Euclidean space. Around that time, T. Rado, E. Cartan, and others also obtained significant breakthroughs and results that today bear their names. Today the field is as exciting, vibrant, and fruitful as ever. In particular, the recent resolutions of Willmore’s and Lawson's conjectures bring new insights and resuscitate old techniques, broadening the vision for humankind to enjoy. This summer school would allow experts in the field to gather, share ideas, and pass on their knowledge to the next generations.
