Algebraic Topology, Field Theory and Strings 5/21/12 – 5/25/12


Organized by Dan Freed, Constantin Teleman and Greg Moore

This final workshop of the Algebraic Topology with Applications to Physics  program presents recent ideas at the interfaces of topology, higher algebraic structures, representation theory, quantum field theory, and integrable systems.
