#### ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY IN AUCKLAND

**Pre-conference mini-courses, 9-13 December 2019**

# Timetable

**LECTURERS**

Ivan Cheltsov (University of Edinburgh & Higher School of Economics, Moscow)

**Local intersection inequalities in birational geometry**

Liana Heuberger (Loughborough University)

**Toric del Pezzo surfaces and quotient singularities**

Frederic Mangolte (University of Angers)

**Real rational surfaces**

Susanna Zimmermann (University of Angers)

**The real Cremona group of the plane**

We will look at the complex projective plane endowed with its usual complex conjugation, and at the group of birational transformations commuting with it. That group is called the real plane Cremona group. After some examples of such transformations, we will study so-called algebraic subgroups of the real plane Cremona group and classify them.
