Graduate school on Geometry of Teichmuller spaces April 15-19, 2019

      Organized by: Samuel Grushevsky, Babak Modami, and Leon Takhtajan Teichmuller theory and moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces have a special role in modern mathematics: they have been a fruitful playground for ideas and methods from complex and algebraic geometry, topology, analysis, and more recently dynamical systems. The main goal of this graduate […]

SCGP Weekly Talks

Organized by Alexander Abanov SCGP Weekly Talks is a colloquium style series of talks aimed at all members and visitors of the Simons Center and the more general math and physics community on Stony Brook campus. The regular time and place for the talks are Tuesday, 1pm. During the workshops at the Center the talks […]


Convergence and Low Regularity in General Relativity: April 29-May 3, 2019

Workshop: Convergence and Low Regularity in General Relativity April 29-May 3, 2019 Organized by: Philippe LeFloch, Jeff Jauregui, Mike Anderson, Christina Sormani To truly address the many open questions that persist in Mathematical General Relativity, one cannot restrict oneself to smooth metrics and strong notions of convergence.   One must apply Lebesgue, Sobolev, Sormani-Wenger Intrinsic […]

String field theory, BV quantization, and moduli spaces: May 20 – 24, 2019

Organized by Kenji Fukaya, Owen Gwilliam, Stephan Stolz, Peter Teichner, and Mahmoud Zeinalian. The main aim of this workshop is to strengthen the dialogue between string field theory and quantum field theory, via the shared language of the BV formalism. The BV formalism plays an increasingly important role in the mathematical treatment of QFT, as showcased […]

Operator Algebras and Applications: June 17 – 21, 2019

Organized by: Stefan Hollands, Vaughan Jones, Gandalf Lechner, Roberto Longo Since Heisenberg’s and Jordan’s “matrix formulation” of quantum mechanics about one hundred years ago, theoretical quantum physics has been a major incentive for mathematical research into operator algebras. The stimulus from physics has helped the development of this field, founded by von Neumann with the […]


Graduate Summer School on the Mathematics and Physics of Hitchin Systems: May 27 – 31, 2019

Organized by Lara Anderson and Laura Schaposnikco-organizers: Sheldon Katz and Joerg Teschner. The school is aimed at graduate students and young postdocs, and will expose participants to some current research topics on the geometry and physics of Higgs bundles. The workshop will have several mini-courses by experts on topics close to their own research, including a […]


Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems: January 22 – June 21, 2019

Organized by Lara Anderson and Laura Schaposnik Hitchin systems have found remarkable applications in many different areas of mathematics and physics. In particular, Hausel and Thaddeus related Higgs bundles to mirror symmetry, and in the work of Kapustin and Witten, Higgs bundles were used to give a physical derivation of the geometric Langlands correspondence. Moreover, […]
