QFT for Mathematicians 2020

Conference Date: 
Monday, June 8, 2020 (All day) to Friday, June 19, 2020 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Mathematical Physics


In recent decades, interaction between mathematics and quantum field theory has proven to be fertile for both fields. However, differences in language, training, and perspective have significantly hampered effective communication between the two parties. The aim of this workshop series is to tear down this wall, and help mathematicians to learn the way physicists think about QFT and eventually ``speak'' QFT fluently. This year we will focus on topics related to 3-dimensional N=4 supersymmetric theories, including symplectic duality, 3d mirror symmetry, integrability, boundary vertex algebras, and relations to geometric Langlands theory.

Registration for this event will open shortly.
