Deciphering AdS/CFT

Recently, the AdS/CFT duality for the case of AdS3/CFT2 has been understood in quite some detail. In particular, a solvable world-sheet theory has been identified that has been argued to be exactly equivalent to the dual free symmetric orbifold CFT.

Differentiable Stacks, Poisson geometry and related geometric structures

Recent days have seen a rapid developments on shifted Poisson and symplectic structures on (derived) differentiable or algebraic stacks. A differentiable stack is, roughly speaking, a Lie groupoid up to Morita equivalence, and the stack represented by a symplectic groupoid of a Poisson manifold naturally has a 1- shifted symplectic structure.

Recent development in Link Homology

Link homology theories emerged about 20 years ago with the celebrated Khovanov homology and Heegaard–Floer homology. These theories categorify respectively the Jones polynomial and the Alexander polynomial, the two most famous polynomial link invariants. These theories are likely to become an essential building block in the seek for a 3+1 quantum field theory (but many hard steps are still to […]

From Coadjoint Orbits to Black Holes

This conference aims to bring together physicists and mathematicians interested in low-dimensional examples of holographic dualities, the orbit method and their interplay via the quantization of coadjoint orbits of the Vi- rasoro group.

Emergent theories for wave turbulence and particle dynamics

In the last years, there has been important progress in the mathematical understanding of effective theories for interacting quantum gases and classical fluids. Notable examples are Gross-Pitaevskii theory for Bose-Einstein condensates, and the Boltzmann equation for rarefied gases.
