Description:

String Geometries and Dualities

Dates: 11–15 September 2017.
Venue: University of Adelaide, 7.15 Ingkarni Wardli Building

The workshop is based on common mathematical structures underlying contemporary developments in String Geometries and Dualities, which occur in high energy physics, string theory, and related areas. It should be of interest to mathematicians and physicists working on the application of generalised geometry, K­-theory, topology, representation theory, index theory, and modular tensor categories to new problems in the above areas of physics. It is hoped that new research directions and collaborations will be forged during this interdisciplinary meeting.

For students, there will also be introductory lectures and opportunities to give talks.
