Spring 2016 – Seminar Series “Mathematics and Physics of Calogero-Moser-Sutherland systems”

Organized by: Nikita Nekrasov, Alexander Turbiner and Alexander Abanov Timing: Spring 2016 Abstract: Calogero-Moser-Sutherland many-body systems arose originally in the 1970’s simultaneously in Nuclear Physics, Mathematical Physics and Solid State Physics. Since then they were found in some incarnations in diverse branches of physics and mathematics such as the theory of quantum Hall effect, Yang-Mills […]

Geometric representation theory: January 4-29th, 2016

Geometric representation theory Organized by: David Ben-Zvi, Roman Bezrukavnikov and Alexander Braverman January 4-29th, 2016 The program will focus on emerging trends in representation theory and their relation to the more traditional ideas of the subject. The celebrated success of the perverse sheaves methods in 1980’s has led to development of a direction which may […]
