Second PIMS Summer School on Algebraic Geometry in High-Energy Physics.

Description: 

The second in a series, this four-day virtual summer school aims to provide early-career researchers with new perspectives on algebraic geometry in high-energy physics. The summer school features four mini-courses by emerging and established researchers working at the interface of these two fields. The topics range from twisted TQFTs, to N=2 supersymmetry, to BPS algebras, to elliptic fibrations. We plan for lively question and discussion periods following the talks and hope that the school not only provides a learning opportunity but also a platform for building new research ties between geometers and physicists.

 

Speakers:

 

  • Tudor Dimofte (UC Davis / Edinburgh):Operator Algebras (and Categories) in Twisted QFTs
  • Monica Jinwoo Kang (Caltech / KAIST): Elliptic Fibrations and Singularities to Anomalies and Spectra
  • Andy Neitzke (Yale): Geometry of .N=2 Supersymmetry
  • Miroslav Rapčák (UC Berkeley): Branes, Sheaves and BPS Algebras
