Nielsen Theory and Related Topics in Akademgorodok

June 27 — July 1, 2022, Novosibirsk, Russia


Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok at Novosibirsk State University. Nielsen Theory and Related Topics in Akademgorodok is the 20th conference in a series that began in 1977 in Oberwolfach, Germany. Each subsequent conference changes the venue, and 2022 is the first time it will be in Russia.


Nielsen theory has its origins in topological fixed point theory. It was named after Jacob Nielsen, who in the 1920s shifted the focus of the fixed point theory from the question of existence of fixed points to the problem of evaluating the actual number of fixed points in the homotopic class of a given mapping. Methods of Nielsen theory extend into many areas of mathematics, most significantly into algebra and topology.
