Quantum theory's influences on topology, analysis and geometry – University of Copenhagen

Masterclass on

Quantum theory's influences on topology, analysis and geometry

The University of Copenhagen

May 20 - June 1, 2013

This two week program focuses on areas where quantum theory has inspired a confluence of ideas from renormalisation theory, differential K-theory, topology, geometry and index theory.  The main aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers working from various points of view on new methods and their applications with a focus on instructional lectures for junior researchers, both mathematicians and physicists.

Venue and dates:

The lectures will be held at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, and the event is hosted by the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation . The masterclass is held from May 20 to June 1, 2013. You can find information for short term visitors including directions to the mathematics department HERE.
