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 […]

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 […]

Combinatorics and Geometry of Convex Polyhedra: March 20-24, 2023

Organized by: Karim Adiprasito, University of Copenhagen and Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Alexey Glazyrin, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Isabella Novik, University of Washington, Igor Pak, UCLA. Convex polyhedra are fundamental structures in geometry playing an intermediate role between the continuous (smooth) and discrete (combinatorial) worlds. Over the past century, much progress has been […]

Generalized Global Symmetries, Quantum Field Theory, and Geometry: September 19-23, 2022

Organizer: Michele Del Zotto (Uppsala) and Sakura Schafer-Nameki (Oxford) Over the past ten years tremendous progress has been achieved in quantum field theory thanks to the realization that symmetries can be interpreted in terms of the action of topological defects on the space of operators. This gives a generalization of the notion of symmetries, explicitly […]
