Holomorphic Differentials in Mathematics and Physics: February 4 – 8, 2019

  Organized by Jayadev Athreya, Steve Bradlow, Sergei Gukov, Andy Neitzke, Anna Wienhard, and Anton Zorich   Holomorphic differentials on Riemann surfaces have long held a distinguished place in low dimensional geometry, dynamics and representation theory. Recently it has become apparent that they constitute a common feature of several other highly active areas of current […]

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 […]
