Projective geometry old and new. From 1956 to 2016 Ovsienko, Valentin


The ideas of projective geometry have a certain « universality » and appear in many different fields of mathematics and physics. As mathematics itself, the destiny of this old area is to remain forever young… The goal of this talk is to illustrate this universality on contemporary examples; our main characters are the Schwarzian derivative, S, and the pentagram map, T. I will explain what this S and T have in common.
