Workshop String Geometry and Loop Spaces

Month: July 2014

Date: July 28--August 1

Name: Workshop String Geometry and Loop Spaces

Location: University of Greifswald, Greifswald, Germany.


String geometry is a rather new area of mathematics that combines topology, differential geometry and higher topos theory. String geometry is supposed to provide important foundations for fermionic string theories; in terms of this motivation, string geometry corresponds to a version of spin geometry on loop spaces. This correspondence imposes interesting questions for the geometry and topology of loop spaces, for instance concerning an appropriate index theory on loop spaces.
