Workshop: SuperGeometry and SuperModuli: March 27-31, 2023

  Organizing 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 this came … Read more

Workshop: Number Theory And Physics: October 24 – October 28, 2022

Organized by: Brian Conrey (American Institute of Mathematics), Matilde Lalin (Université de Montréal), Giuseppe Mussardo (Laboratorio Interdisciplinare Scienze Naturali e Umanistiche, SISSA), German Sierra (UAM/CSIC) The interplay between Number Theory and Physics has a long tradition, as illustrated by several examples and many initiatives of the past. A well-know example is the tantalizing connection between … Read more

Workshop: Hyperkahler quotients, singularities, and quivers: January 30 – February 3, 2023.

Organized by: Ljudmila Kamenova (Stony Brook University), Giovanni Mongardi (University of Bologna), Alexei Oblomkov (UMass Amherst) Hyperkahler manifolds are higher-dimensional generalizations of K3 surfaces, and as such they are a perfect testing ground for central conjectures in algebraic geometry, like the Hodge conjecture, the Tate conjecture, Grothendieck’s standard conjectures, Bloch-Beilinson conjectures, etc. Exciting new insight … Read more

SCGP Postdoc Gabriel Cuomo receives the CHIPP Prize 2021

Last year, 2020, Gabriel Cuomo successfully defended his PhD thesis in theoretical particle physics at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). For this academic achievement, the Sicilian-born physicist, now a member of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, received the Doctoral Students Award of the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP). The prize will … Read more

5d N=1 SCFTs and Gauge Theories on Brane Webs: October 17-21, 2022

Organized by Amihay Hanany, Marcus Sperling, Antoine Bourget and Julius Grimminger Five dimensional (5d) Lagrangian gauge theories are non-renormalizable, however many 5d N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories can be understood as effective infrared (IR) descriptions of 5d or 6d conformal fixed points in the ultraviolet (UV) under the renormalization group (RG) flow. Consequently, several questions need … Read more
