Knot categorification from mirror symmetry

Series: Colloquium
Event Type: Seminar
Scientific Area(s):
End date:

Two of the most beautiful examples of the interaction between mathematics and physics involve knot theory and mirror symmetry. In this talk, I will describe a new connection between them. The solution to a central problem in knot theory, the knot categorification problem, comes from a new application of mirror symmetry.
