Whereas in the early 20th century, physicists would typically turn to mathematicians for technical advice, these later strongly benefitted from the advances of quantum field theory and string theory as can be seen from various standing mathematical conjectures motivated by physics. The links between physics and mathematics have become so strong, that some fields of research have developed at the very threshold between these disciplines, where distinguishing between the mathematical and physical input has become artificial if not impossible. This meeting will be the fourth of a series of meetings that bring together women mathematicians and physicists working in these threshold areas aimed at identifying new trends of research at the frontier between mathematics, quantum field theory and string theory and exploring how they intertwine.

Registration for this event will open shortly.
