Lie Theory and Mathematical Physics

Month: May 2014

Date: May 19--23

Name: Lie Theory and Mathematical Physics

Location: Centre de recherches mathématiques, Université de Montréal, Pavillon André-Aisenstadt, Montréal (Québec), Canada.


There has always been a close and extremely fruitful interaction between Lie theory and mathematical physics-an old example is Gell-Mann's flavour symmetry using the representation theory of the Lie algebra $su_3$. But this interaction has clearly deepened and blossomed significantly with the arrival of string theory.
