Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry and D-branes, 12/12/11-12/16/11

12-16 Dec 2011

The aim of the workshop is to present recent progress and pose new questions at the interface between algebraic geometry, noncommutative algebra, representation theory, and string theory.  The main topics will include noncommutative resolutions of singularities, superpotential and Calabi-Yau algebras, matrix factorizations, and the McKay correspondence.
Workshop organizers:
Charlie Beil, Michael Douglas, and Peng Gao
