Focus Program on Noncommutative Geometry and Quantum Groups
Month: June 2013
Date: June 3--28
Name: Focus Program on Noncommutative Geometry and Quantum Groups
Location: Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Weeks 1, 2, and 3 will be devoted to short courses and seminars on the topics of noncommutative geometry and dynamical systems, quantum groups and Hopf cyclic homology, and connections between noncommutative geometry and index theory, geometry, and mathematical physics. The last week will be devoted to a capstone conference in honor of the 75th birthday of Marc Rieffel of the University of California, Berkeley, who has been one of the most influential mathematicians in the world in the area of noncommutative geometry and quantum groups.
