Special year 2015: Geometry and Physics

2015 Special year

The purpose of this special year is to bring together researchers working in the area of 'Geometry and Physics', i.e. researchers working on the interface of geometry (interpreted in a broad sense, i.e. including differential and algebraic geometry, geometric representation theory, category theory, generalised geometry) and mathematical physics. The planned events will cater both to the experts (specialised workshops), non-­experts and students (school, lecture series).


  • Peter Bouwknegt - Chair
