This will be a hybrid workshop with inperson participation only available to members of the semesterlong program and invited guests. Online participation will be open to all who register. Due to limited capacity, mathematicians who have not received an official invitation will not be permitted to enter the institute.
This workshop will bring together researchers working on new fourdimensional gauge theories from the perspectives of differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and physics. Over the last 25 years, physicists have made tantalizing conjectures relating the Vafa–Witten equation to modular forms and the Kapustin–Witten and Haydys–Witten equations to knot theory and the geometric Langlands programme. The analytical challenges in the way of establishing these predictions are now being pursued vigorously. More recently, algebraic geometers have had enormous success in confirming and refining Vafa–Witten's predictions for projective surfaces. The workshop will serve as a platform for reporting on recent progress and exchanging ideas in all of these areas, with the aim of strengthening existing and fostering new interactions.
