Current Running Weekly Talks: Spring 2017

SCGP Weekly Talk

Organized by Alexander Abanov

The SCGP Weekly Talk is a colloquium style series of talks aimed at all members and visitors of the Simons Center and the more general math and physics community on Stony Brook campus. During the workshops at the Center, the talks are usually given by organizers or distinguished participants of the corresponding workshop on related topics. All SCGP Weekly Talks are recorded and can be accessed through the SCGP video portal.

These weekly talks are held regularly on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm in SCGP Rm 102

Physics Seminar

These weekly talks are held regularly on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm in SCGP Rm 313

Math Seminar: Math of Gauge Fields

These weekly talks are held regularly on Thursdays at 1:00 pm in SCGP Rm 313

Della Pietra Lecture Series

The Della Pietra Lecture Series aims to bring world-renowned scientists to the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics to enhance the intellectual activity of the Center, with a focus on bringing a greater awareness of recent and impactful discoveries in Physics and Mathematics to the Long Island community, in particular to high school, undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in the sciences. The Della Pietra Lecture Series is made possible by a generous donation from brothers, Stephen and Vincent Della Pietra, and their families.

Upcoming Lectures: Sir Chris Llewellyn Smith: May 30 – June 2, 2017


Current running Programs and Workshops:

Program:  Mathematics of gauge fields: October 10, 2016 – April 28, 2017

The program will focus on various mathematical aspects of gauge theory, including applications to topology and geometry

Workshop: String Theory and Scattering Amplitudes, January 9 – 13, 2017

The purpose of this workshop is to assess the most recent developments in string theory scattering amplitudes, including comparison of different formalisms as well as applications to target space (super-)geometry and the associated physics.
