Aim of the school
The fundamental group scheme of a scheme defined over a field has been constructed by Nori in the 70s. It is a natural generalisation of the étale fundamental group. Since then its properties have been widely studied and many different further generalisations have been suggested. The aim of this meeting is to run through the history of the fundamental group scheme, starting from the first ideas due to Grothendieck to the most recent results. Being a school the main definitions will be recalled and several tools to understand this fascinating theory will be provided. This meeting is intended for students (Ph.D.), but also to post docs and young researchers, with a particular interest in algebraic geometry in positive characteristic.
