Southeast-Tsinghua Mini-Workshop on Mathematical Physics
For mathematics, string theory has been a source of many significant inspirations, ranging from Seiberg-Witten theory in four-manifolds, to enumerative geometry and Gromov-Witten theory in algebraic geometry, to work on the Jones polynomial in knot theory, to recent progress in the geometric Langlands program and the development of derived algebraic geometry and n-category theory. In the other direction, mathematics has provided physicists with powerful tools, ranging from powerful differential geometric techniques for solving or analyzing key partial differential equations, to toric geometry, to K theory and derived categories in D-branes, to the analysis of Calabi-Yau manifolds and string compactifications, to the use of modular forms and other arithmetic techniques.
However, the research on modern mathematical physics in China is just getting started. The Yau Center in Tsinghua and Southeast University devote to lead the research of mathematical physics in China and form a world-influential group. The aim of this workshop is to gather the leading experts in mathematical physics in China, and to publicize the research teams in mathematical physics of the newly established Shing-Tung Yau Center of Southeast University and the Yau Mathematical Sciences Center in Tsinghua.
Topics include: String theory, Gauge theories, AdS/CFT, Algebraic Geometry, Dynamical Systems.
