SuperGeometry and SuperModuli: March 27 – May 19, 2023

Organized by: Sergio Cacciatori (Università degli studi dell’Insubria), Samuel Grushevsky (SCGP), Alexander Polishchuk (University of Oregon) A supermanifold is the generalization of a usual manifold when some of the coordinates are even variables, and some are odd. The mathematical foundations of supergeometry were established in the 1970s and 1980s. While much of the motivation for … Read more

Confronting Large N, Holography, Integrability and Stringy Models with the Real World: February 14 – April 22, 2022

Organized by: Sergei Dubovsky (NYU), Zohar Komargodski (SCGP), Erich Poppitz (University of Toronto), Jacob Sonnenshein (Tel Aviv), Mithat Unsal (North Carolina State University) Since the introduction of QCD as the theory of gluons and quarks quite a lot of methods and toy models have been invoked to seek control on the theory. In particular: considering … Read more
