Simons Center Program on String Compactification

Simons Center Program on String Compactification Spring 2012 Program Description. In 1985, it was shown by Candelas et al that compactification of the heterotic string on a Calabi-Yau manifold could lead to models similar to the Standard Model of particle physics, and `beyond the Standard Model’ extensions such as grand unification and supersymmetry. Over the […]

Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Field Theory, 1/16/12 – 1/20/12

Organized by Mike Douglas, Kevin Costello and Arthur Jaffe   Quantum field theory is a rich subject, with a long history in physics and in mathematics. In recent years it has inspired many profound developments in topology, in algebra and representation theory, and in analysis. Given the growing interest in the subject among mathematicians, it […]

Portraits of Physicists, by Miriam Carothers

                This series captures an era in Theoretical Physics through the faces of the Protagonists: some of them are the Pioneers, who laid down the ground for string theory by uncovering the mathematics that describes the world; then comes the New Generation, who after the Second Superstring Revolution […]
