String Math 2014

Month: June 2014

Date: June 9--13

Name: String Math 2014

Location: University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.


University of Alberta is hosting the fourth annual meeting of the String Math series of conferences in June 2014. The main goal of the conference is to bring together mathematicians and physicists who work on ideas related to string theory. String theory, as well as quantum field theory, has contributed a series of profound ideas which gave rise to entirely new mathematical fields and revitalized older ones. By now there is a large and rapidly growing number of both mathematicians and physicists working at the string-theoretic interface between the two academic fields. The influence flows in both directions, with mathematical techniques and ideas contributing crucially to major advances in string theory.
