Third Erlangen Fall School on Quantum Geometry
Department Mathematik, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
Erlangen, September 15-18 2014
The Erlangen Fall Schools on Quantum Geometry are a series of interdisciplinary schools on mathematical physics topics surrounding geometry and quantisation. They address postdocs and PhD students from both subjects and aim to provide an overview as well as an in-depth understanding of current research topics at the interface of mathematics and physics.
The Third Erlangen Fall School on Quantum Geometry involves three intensive lecture series on:
- Teichmüller Theory
(Vladimir Fock, Université de Strasbourg, IRMA)
- Deformations of Operator Algebras and the Construction of Quantum Field
Theories (Gandalf Lechner, Universität Leipzig)
- Geometric Quantization
(Gijs Tuynman, Université Lille 1)
Each lecture series consists of approximately 6 hours of lectures as well as problem and discussion sessions. They are aimed at a mixed audience of mathematicians and physicists and are accessible to PhD students and postdocs. Abstracts, references, further reading and lecture notes are given on the programme page.
Registration and Support
Participants should register on the school's registration page by July 31 2014. There is a limited amount of funding to provide financial support to PhD students and young researchers. If you require funding to cover your travel and/or acomodation cost, please indicate so on the registration form.
