Pre-StringMath Summer School

17-21 of July 2017

The interaction between string theory, quantum field theory and mathematics has produced important new ideas and progress. This school will consist of five courses on topics of current interest from these areas, and is aimed at PhD students and postdocs with some background in mathematics and mathematical physics.

The school poster is available here .

This summer school will precede StringMath 2017, 24 - 28 of July 2017, Hamburg

List of speakers:

Tobias Ekholm (Uppsala University)
Bertrand Eynard (CEA Saclay)
Lotte Hollands (Heriot-Watt University)
Anton Kapustin (Caltech)
Greg Moore (Rutgers)


Ekholm: Knot contact homology and topological strings
Eynard: Topological recursions in mathematical physics and topological strings
Hollands: Spectral networks and superpotentials for theories of class S
Kapustin: Topological phases of matter and topological field theory
