Title: Methods in Algebraic Geometry for the Computation of Scattering Amplitudes in QFT




The aim of the mini-workshop is to discuss computational techniques in algebraic geometry which are currently of particular relevance for the computation of scattering amplitudes. The main focus is on the Singular program which contributes significantly to research of our groups.
