Organizing Committee
Abstract

The purpose of the workshop is to advance toward the goal of making information relating to families of K3 surfaces and their elliptic fibrations into the LMFDB. We expect to begin with families of Picard number 19, building on the previous week's work on Shimura curves, and entering at least the following information: Picard lattice, frame lattices, transcendental lattice, 2-neighbour relations, elliptic fibrations, singular projective model. For some of these, code exists or is currently under construction; for others, it will need to be developed.

The workshop will consist of a small group of mostly experienced people. We expect that most of the time will be spent writing code in small groups, with at least one meeting a day to make sure that we are all going in the same direction while avoiding duplication of effort.


This workshop is an activity of the Simons Collaboration and is supported by the Simons Foundation.
