Integrability in Modern Theoretical and Mathematical Physics

  Organized by Nikita Nekrasov and Samson Shatasvili Fall 2012 Exactly solvable quantum many body systems, lattice models of statistical physics and integrable 1+1 dimensional quantum field theories have very rich and long history which substantially influenced the development of the mathematical physics in the 20th century. During the recent years it has become clear […]

Symplectic and Contact Geometry and Connections to Low-Dimensional Topology

Organized by Peter Ozsváth and Yakov Eliashberg Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 In the last 2 decades, and especially in recent years there were symplectic geometric ideas and methods brought significant progress in low-dimensional topology, while the methods developed in 3- and 4-dimensional topology found applications to symplectic geometric problems. For instance, the Lagrangian intersection […]
