Book Launch: "Topology and Physics"

2019-04-16 - 2019-04-16 at City, University of London


Dear Colleague,
You are cordially invited to attend the book launch for Topology & Physics at City University, London on the 16th April, 18:00.
Edited by C N Yang, Mo-Lin Ge, and Yang-Hui He; this significant volume contains contributions from an assembly of grand masters in the field of mathematical physics.

The launch will include an introduction and Q&A hosted by editor and City University Professor of Mathematics, Yang-Hui He, and chapter contributor Professor Minhyong Kim of Merton College, Oxford as well contributor Professor N. Manton (TBC).

Please note, this launch will be held in honour of Sir Michael Francis Atiyah, who co-chaptered the ‘Complex Geometry of Nuclei and Atoms’ before he recently passed away. Sir Michael’s work has had great influence in fields beyond mathematics, extending to aspects of theoretical physics such as quantum theory and general relativity. We are proud to have worked with him on this project.

Light refreshments will be provided.
Please register your interest at the following link below.

Hamilton School on Mathematical Physics

2019-05-20 - 2019-05-22 at TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN


The study of gauge theory and conformal field theory have lead to remarkable advancements in theoretical physics. The first Hamilton school on Mathematical Physics will be held at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, from the 20th to the 22nd of May, and will focus on modern advancements in gauge theory and conformal field theory, with a particular eye towards providing an interdisciplinary treatment of different subfields in these topics.

The ability to combine ideas from different subfields continues to play an increasingly large role in theoretical physics. For example, modern methods in amplitudes include tools that range from Hopf algebras, to modular forms, to the appearance and use of Yangian symmetries. On the other side of the spectrum, generating functions of topological invariants of various moduli spaces that are computed by gauge and string theoretic methods are also expressed in terms of modular forms and their generalizations. Furthermore, theories like the Seiberg-Witten gauge theory provide another route to integrability. It seems therefore that good parallel understanding of aspects of gauge theory and conformal field theory, integrability and modular forms could be of crucial importance for in the future.
