Matrix Factorizations in Mathematics and Physics: June 12-16, 2017

Organized By: David Eisenbud, David Morrison, Irena Peeva A matrix factorization of an element w in a polynomial or power series ring (more generally, in a local or graded regular commutative ring) is a pair of square matrices (A, B) […]

Strongly Correlated Topological Phases of Matter: June 5-9, 2017

Organized by: Lukasz Fidkowski, Dan Freed, and Anton Kapustin Previously, phases of matter were mostly classified based on symmetry principles, or purely on the basis of topological properties. Recent developments however have highlighted the interplay of symmetry and topology as […]

Homological Mirror Symmetry and Higher Genus Invariants: May 22-26, 2017

Organized By: Mohammed Abouzaid, Denis Auroux, Ron Donagi, Kenji Fukaya, Tony Pantev Mirror symmetry’s most spectacular predictions are those about enumerative invariants of Calabi-Yau threefolds, which exhibit intricate structures when studied for all degrees and genera. This workshop will focus […]

Quantitative Symplectic Geometry: May 8-12, 2017

Organized by: Dan Cristofaro-Gardiner, Richard Hind, Michael Hutchings. Despite the fundamental importance of symplectic geometry, many basic questions about it are not well understood. Quantitative symplectic geometry is concerned with closely related questions of size and time in symplectic geometry. […]

Gauge Theory and Low Dimensional Topology: April 24-28, 2017

Organized by: Simon Donaldson, Kenji Fukaya, and John Morgan Gauge Theory and Low Dimensional Topology: With the introduction of Seiberg-Witten theory in the mid 1990s the study of the instanton moduli spaces in dimensions 3 and 4 took a secondary […]
