Program Geometry and Physics at HIM

Posted by Urs Schreiber

The (one year old) Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics

in Bonn is hosting a


Trimester Program on Geometry and Physics
May - August 2008
(poster)

I got one of the visitor positions there and hence will take a leave of absence from Hamburg for next summer. Looking forward to it, indeed.

For some reason the Hausdorff schedule is slightly out of sync with the semester here. It looks like during April 2008 I will therefore be employed neither here nor there.

I am just mentioning this in case somebody would like to invite me during April. If you have travel funds: I have time.

The organizers of the program are

Alain Connes
Matthias Lesch
Matilde Marcolli

the senior participants are


S. Albeverio (Bonn)
A. Carey (Canberra)
A. Connes (IHES)
C. Consani (Baltimore)
D. Freed (Austin)
A. Givental (Berkeley)
M. Hopkins (Harvard)
M. Khalkali (London, Ontario)
A. Klemm (Bonn)
Y. Manin (Bonn)
H. Moscovici (Columbus)
W. Nahm (Dublin)
S. Stolz (Notre Dame)
P. Teichner (Berkeley)
C. Teleman (Berkeley)

I do not know who else will be there. Except that I know that my colleague, Konrad Waldorf, will come, too.

Am looking forward to it, very much.

In the time

April 7 - April 13, 2008,

I’ll be visiting the math department of Aarhus University.

Jens Fjelstad is now in Aarhus, and we’ll continue working on 2-functorial CFT.

Very nice.

Re: Program Geometry and Physics at HIM

I hope you don’t mind my announcing also a small workshop in London, in June of next year:

Non-commutative constructions in arithmetic and geometry

that might be of interest to the people at this cafe. I’m terrible with web pages, but here is a link to a preliminary one.

Thanks for the information! I can lift this announcement to a blog entry, if you like, where more people might see it. (Maybe when your preliminary webpage has become less preliminary.)

Re: Program Geometry and Physics at HIM

“of interest to the people at this cafe”

Is it about questions related to the ideas you discussed here ?

Re: Program Geometry and Physics at HIM

The intention is rather broad but does involve fundamental groups in intricate ways. The new announcement gives a bit more detail. I’ll write something more later on what might be achieved by this kind of a meeting.

Re: Program Geometry and Physics at HIM

If you guys want to talk about Minhyong’s conference, it’d be good to do it on the page about that conference.

Re: Program Geometry and Physics at HIM

It now looks as if probably I’ll spend some time in April 2008 visiting Stephan Stolz in Notre Dame. Looking forward to it!

And now: happy new year to everybody!!
