Workshop

Emergent Geometries from Strings and Quantum Fields CANCELED

May 31, 2021 - Jul 09, 2021



Abstract
The workshop gathers experts on the main geometric structures emerging from string and field theories, in particular: Poisson geometry, noncommutative geometries, generalized geometries and open/closed string inspired (non)geometries, complex and Kaehler geometry, algebraic and super geometry, 3d quantum geometries. It aims at further interconnecting these researches thus paving the way to physical applications. Topological field theories, T- and U-dualities, supersymmetric field theories, superstrings, string field theory is a non-exhaustive list of topics where these new geometric tools emerged and inspired new directions. The expected outcome is a deeper understanding of the relations between geometry and physics, and ultimately advancements in the quantum structure of spacetime emerging from theories of fields and strings.
