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

  • Start Date: 08/23/2021
  • End Date: 08/27/2021



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.
