Infinite Root Stacks of Log Schemes


I will talk about the notion of "infinite root stack" of a logarithmic scheme, introduced by myself and Angelo Vistoli as part of my PhD thesis. It is a "limit" version of the generalization to log schemes of the stack of roots of a divisor on a variety, and we show, among other things, that its "bare" geometry closely reflects the "log" geometry of the base log scheme. After giving some motivation, I will briefly define log schemes and describe this infinite root construction. I will then state the results we get about it, and their relevance to log geometry, also in view of (hopefully) upcoming applications.
