Workshop on F1-geometry next month

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on October 21, 2009

There will be a workshop on F1-geometry in Granada, 23-25 Nov. This has not been advertised much before, so spread the word. They plan a number of introductory lectures on various aspects of geometry over the field with one element, and it all looks very exciting. As an extra bonus, you might also get the chance to see the legendary range of symmetry groups in the Alhambra.

New survey on Durov’s approach to the field with one element

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on August 29, 2009

As Thomas points out in a comment, Javier Fresan has posted a survey on the thesis of Durov. Although Durov’s thesis is fairly readable, it is almost 600 pages long, so Fresan’s survey is a very welcome addition to the F1 literature.

For more on the field with one element, see F_un Mathematics. Durov’s work has also been discussed earlier at the n-category cafe and the Secret Blogging Seminar.
