Book DetailsProceedings of Symposia in Pure MathematicsVolume: 90; 2015; 340 ppMSC: Primary 11; 14; 32; 53; 57; 81; 83
This volume contains the proceedings of the conference StringMath 2012, which was held July 16–21, 2012, at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics, Universität Bonn. This was the second in a series of annual large meetings devoted to the interface of mathematics and string theory. These meetings have rapidly become the flagship conferences in the field.
Topics include super Riemann surfaces and their super moduli, generalized moonshine and K3 surfaces, the latest developments in supersymmetric and topological field theory, localization techniques, applications to knot theory, and many more.
The contributors include many leaders in the field, such as Sergio Cecotti, Matthias Gaberdiel, Rahul Pandharipande, Albert Schwarz, Anne Taormina, Johannes Walcher, Katrin Wendland, and Edward Witten.
This book will be essential reading for researchers and students in this area and for all mathematicians and string theorists who want to update themselves on developments in the mathstring interface.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in string theory.
