Seminaire de Mathematiques Superieures 2013: Physics and Mathematics of Link Homology June 24, 2013 - July 05, 2013
Location: Centre de Recherche Mathematiques; Montreal; Quebec, Canada
Organizers Sergei Gukov (California Institute of Technology), Mikhail Khovanov (Columbia University), Johannes Walcher (McGill University)

Homology theories of knots and links is a burgeoning field at the interface of mathematics with theoretical physics. The 2013 edition of the SMS will bring together leading researchers in mathematics and mathematical physics working in this area, with the aim to educate a new generation of scientists in this exciting subject. The school will provide a pedagogical review of the current state of the various constructions of knot homologies, and also encourage interactions between the communities in order to facilitate development of the unified picture.

Details are available on the SMS Homepage.

Special restrictions (for MSRI Support):

  1. In addition to the nomination at MSRI, a separate application via the SMS Homepage is required to participate in this workshop.
  2. Participation is subject to selection by the organizers, see Description of the SMS.
  3. Due to the small number of students supported by MSRI, only one student per institution will be funded by MSRI. Additional students are highly encouraged to apply directly via the SMS Homepage.
