Brief description about the school: Seshadri constants are invariants of line bundles on projective varieties which measure local positivity. They have emerged as a fundamental concept in algebraic geometry. They were introduced by J.-P. Demailly, using the Seshadri criterion for ampleness, to measure the growth rate of tensor powers of an ample line bundle. Over the last thirty years, Seshadri constants have become an active area of research in the field of algebraic geometry.
