Quintessentially Science Fiction. An Interview with Eugenio Calabi, Hosted by Claude LeBrun, on Behalf of the Simons Center.

Click HERE to watch the video In July 2019, on behalf of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook Mathematics Department, conducted an interview with Eugenio Calabi at the University of Pennsylvania Mathematics Department. Calabi is of course primarily famous for his pioneering work on Calabi-Yau manifolds, a class of solutions […]

Roundtable for Math and Science Summer Programs: April 29 – May 1, 2022

Organized by Elena Yakubovskaya, Alexander Kirillov, Mira Bernstein, Marisa Debowsky, Pavel Etingof This workshop brings together organizers of advanced math and science summer programs for middle and high school students. The initial goal of the conference is to build closer connections among top U.S. programs and to learn from each other, sharing experiences and ideas. […]

Gauged Linear Sigma Models @30: May 22-26, 2023

Organized by: Mykola Dedushenko Stony Brook University Heeyeon Kim, Rutgers University, Johanna Knapp, University of Melbourne, Ilarion Melnikov, James Madison University, Eric Sharpe, Virginia Tech. Gauged linear sigma models (GLSMs) have provided key insights into numerous aspects of string theory and supersymmetric eld theory and have been a bridge to various elds in mathematics such […]

Forty Years of Ricci Flow: The Geometric-Flow Revolution in Global Differential Geometry: July 11-15, 2022

Organized by: Eric Bahuaud, Seattle University Panagiota Daskalopoulos, Columbia University Christine Guenther, Pacific University James Isenberg, University of Oregon Dan Knopf, The University of Texas at Austin Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook University. The Ricci flow has played a decisive role in geometry and topology during the forty years since it was first introduced by Richard […]

Combinatorics and Geometry of Convex Polyhedra: March 20-24, 2023

Organized by: Karim Adiprasito, University of Copenhagen and Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Alexey Glazyrin, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Isabella Novik, University of Washington, Igor Pak, UCLA. Convex polyhedra are fundamental structures in geometry playing an intermediate role between the continuous (smooth) and discrete (combinatorial) worlds. Over the past century, much progress has been […]

Number Theory And Physics: October 24-November 18 2022

Organized by: Brian Conrey (American Institute of Mathematics ), Matilde Lalin (Université de Montréal), Giuseppe Mussardo (Laboratorio Interdisciplinare Scienze Naturali e Umanistiche, SISSA, Trieste, Italy), German Sierra (UAM/CSIC) The interplay between Number Theory and Physics has a long tradition, as illustrated by several examples and many initiatives of the past. A well-know example is the […]

SuperGeometry and SuperModuli: March 27-May 19, 2023

Organizing by: Sergio Cacciatori, Università degli studi dell’Insubria, Samuel Grushevsky, Stony Brook University, Alexander Polishchuk, University of Oregon. A supermanifold is the generalization of a usual manifold when some of the coordinates are even variables, and some are odd. The mathematical foundations of supergeometry were established in the 1970s and 1980s. While much of the […]

Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model: February 27-March 24, 2023

Organized by: Ranny Budnik, Rouven Essig, and Maxim Pospelov. Continuing progress in collider physics and dark matter searches in the past few decades have put significant pressure on several favorable theoretical models for Dark Matter and other beyond the Standard Model physics. However, the mystery of dark matter, and its true identity in relation to […]

Hyperkahler quotients, singularities, and quivers: Jan 2-Feb 24, 2023

Organized by: Ljudmila Kamenova, Stony Brook University, Giovanni Mongardi, University of Bologna, Alexei Oblomkov, UMass Amherst. Hyperkahler manifolds are higher-dimensional generalizations of K3 surfaces, and as such they are a perfect testing ground for central conjectures in algebraic geometry, like the Hodge conjecture, the Tate conjecture, Grothendieck’s standard conjectures, Bloch-Beilinson conjectures, etc. Exciting new insight […]
