### Non-Commutative Structures in Arithmetic and Geometry

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

*guest post by Minhyong Kim*

In June of next year, the will be an informal workshop at University
College London on

**Non-commutative structures in arithmetic and geometry**

The idea is for a small group of experts from rather different areas to get together to explain to each other what it is they do, and possibly discover some unifying themes. The areas represented will be

Non-commutative Iwasawa theory, non-commutative geometry, non-abelian class field theory, non-abelian Hodge theory, Anabelian geometry, and, hopefully, some non-abelian physics.

A preliminary website is here .

Note also the related program at the Newton Institute.
