Equivariant Quantum Cohomology, Mirror Symmetry, and Symplectic Geometry Workshop, May 16, 2011 – May 20, 2011

Dates: May 16-20, 2011 Location: Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, SUNY Stony BrookOrganizers: Dennis Auroux, Ludmil Katzarkov, Paul Seidel The broad aim of the workshop is to address recent developments involving equivariant structures in mirror symmetry. These developments come from quantum cohomology and symplectic topology, and have further ramifications in representation theory and in […]

the dark side of the force

Interviewer Luca Mazzucato   An interview with Itay Yavin. The Israeli physicist, now at McMaster University in Canada, obtained his PhD at Harvard under the supervision of Nima Arkani-Hamed. He is a leading expert in physics beyond the Standard Model and dark matter. Four-fifths of all the matter in the Universe has never been observed: […]

The Ehrenpreis Conjecture for Riemann Surfaces and the Surface Subgroup Theorem for Hyperbolic Three Manifolds

There will be a five lecture discussion-exposition of the new technique of Dr. Jeremy Kahn (Stony Brook University) and Dr. Vladimir Morkovic (Warwick) constructing mappings of constant negative curvature surfaces into certain targets, which are locally almost isometries. Participants Dennis Sullivan (Stony Brook) Scott Wolpert (Maryland) Ara Basmajian (CUNY) Sarah Koch (Harvard) Vaibhav Gadre (Harvard) […]
