Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

New Perspectives in Topological Field Theories

Posted by Urs Schreiber

This summer, August 27 - 31 (2012), the Center for Mathematical Physics in Hamburg hosts the coference:

New Perspectives in Topological Field Theories

From their website:

In this conference we will bring together researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics which are involved in recent developments related to topological field theories. Specifically, the topics covered are higher categories, Khovanov homology, non-compact Chern-Simons theory, and topological conformal field theory. The spectrum of topics is chosen to provide enough common ground between participants from these fields to stimulate intensive interaction. Namely, from a mathematical perspective, all topics are related to structures in representation theories and their categorifications. On the physics side, structures inspired or derived from string theory are the unifying link.
