This workshop addressed issues of discipline and style in number theory, algebra, geometry, topology, analysis, and mathematical physics. Most speakers presented case studies, but some offered global surveys of how stylistic shifts informed the transition and transformation of special research fields. Older traditions in established research communities were considered alongside newer trends, including changing views regarding the role of proof.
