Chris Gerig Lecture Series

Virtual Lecture 1: Wednesday 6/2312:00-13:00 EDT14:00-15:00 EDT 1) Introductory ECH and cobordism map difficultiesAbstract: In these two lectures I will introduce Embedded Contact Homology, a useful Floer theory for contact 3-manifolds, obtained by counting pseudoholomorphic curves and Reeb orbits. ECH is known to be isomorphic to versions of monopole Floer homology, and can be used to probe both […]

Virtual Workshop: Applications of gauge topology, holography and string models to QCD

Organized by: Massimo D’Elia, Jeff Greensite, Elias Kiritsis, Zohar Komargodski, Edward Shuryak, Jacob Sonnenschein, Ismail Zahed. Understanding gauge field dynamics at the non-perturbative level, in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) has been a persistent challenge. Lattice gauge theories solve these issues from first principles, on supercomputers. Semiclassical methods rely on dynamics of gluonic solitons – instantons, monopoles, instanton-dyons […]
