This programme combines research in differential geometry, geometric topology, and global analysis. Crossing and transcending the frontiers of these disciplines it is concerned with convergence and limits in geometric-topological settings and with asymptotic properties of objects of infinite size. The overall theme can roughly be divided into the three cross-sectional topics convergence, compactifications, and rigidity.
Proposals for this Priority Programme should address research questions in geometry at infinity as indicated by (but not restricted to) the above sample topics. Ideally they contribute to establishing an interdisciplinary research environment. It is advisable to state explicitly the relation of the proposed project to the overall programme as well as to other (potential) projects.
