The conference String-Math 2014 was held from June 9–13, 2014, at the
University of Alberta. This edition of String-Math is the first to
include satellite workshops: “String-Math Summer School” (held from
June 2–6, 2014, at the University of British Columbia), “Calabi-Yau
Manifolds and their Moduli” (held from June 14–18, 2014, at the
University of Alberta), and “Quantum Curves and Quantum Knot
Invariants” (held from June 16–20, 2014, at the Banff International
Research Station). This volume presents the proceedings of the
conference and satellite workshops.

For mathematics, string theory has been a source of many
significant inspirations, ranging from Seiberg-Witten theory in
four-manifolds, to enumerative geometry and Gromov-Witten theory in
algebraic geometry, to work on the Jones polynomial in knot theory, to
recent progress in the geometric Langlands program and the development
of derived algebraic geometry and n-category theory. In the other
direction, mathematics has provided physicists with powerful tools,
ranging from powerful differential geometric techniques for solving or
analyzing key partial differential equations, to toric geometry, to
K-theory and derived categories in D-branes, to the analysis of
Calabi-Yau manifolds and string compactifications, to modular forms
and other arithmetic techniques. Articles in this book address many
of these topics.

#### Readership

Advanced graduate students, post-docs, and most Ph.D. mathematicians and mathematical physicists interested in string theory and quantum field theory.
