Summer Workshop Application
Welcome to the webpage of the Summer Simons Workshops in Mathematics and Physics.
These workshops began in 2003 and have been a feature of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook since 2008. The Center’s mission is to develop the interaction of geometry in the broadest sense with theoretical physics, and is rooted in a long tradition of engagement between Mathematics and Physics here at Stony Brook, and ultimately in the centuries-long history of these two fields. The Stony Brook tradition is exemplified by the joint ITP-Math seminars initiated by Jim Simons and Frank Yang in the 1970’s; these stimulated interest worldwide in the mathematics of gauge theories.
This years workshop focus:
For many decades, string theory and geometry have stimulated and enriched each other by the study of string compactifications. In this workshop we hope to review the many facets of this deep link in hope of furthering this rich interaction between these two fields. Click here for more details!
