Topological Matter and Duality   POSTPONED

Sep 07, 2020 - Sep 11, 2020

Topological properties of gauge theories find application in the characterization of novel phases of matter and in establishing nonperturbative phenomena such as the duality relations between quantum field theories in three and four spacetime dimensions. This conference is meant to expose the current status of research in several domains dealing with topology and duality.

* Anomalies of quantum field theories
* Generalized symmetries
* Topological aspects of quantum states in condensed matter
* (Supersymmetric) dualities in (2+1)-dimensions
* Time-reversal symmetry and 4d theta-terms
