Summer School: Algebraic Structures in Quantum Field Theory
August 26-30, 2019
Over the last decades, advances in higher category theory have led to a comprehensive framework of
"higher-dimensional" algebraic structures, ready to be utilized in mathematial and physical
This summer school, aimed at PhD students and postdocs, will provide an introduction to some of the
most recent developments related to E_n-algebras, factorization algebras, and their integration
theory, with a view towards the fruitful interaction with quantum field theory.
The school poster is available here .
List of speakers:
Owen Gwilliam (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
David Jordan (University of Edinburgh)
Mikhael Kapranov (Kavli IPMU, University of Tokyo)
Claudia Scheimbauer (NTNU, Trondheim)
Masahito Yamazaki (Kavli IPMU, University of Tokyo)
The registration is now open until 28th July 2019.
