Simons Summer Workshop

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 year’s summer workshop will focus on strings and QFT without supersymmetry, including non-supersymmetric vacuum constructions in string theory, dualities in nonsupersymmetric theories in 3 and other dimensions, issues in connection with deSitter space and its stability, as well as bootstrap techniques which also apply to nonsupersymmetric contexts. Click here for more details!
