    Proceedings of Symposia in Pure Mathematics
    Volume: 852012; 484 pp
    MSC: Primary 14; 18; 19; 22; 53; 58; 81; 83;

    The nature of interactions between mathematicians and physicists has been thoroughly transformed in recent years. String theory and quantum field theory have contributed a series of profound ideas that gave rise to entirely new mathematical fields and revitalized older ones. The influence flows in both directions, with mathematical techniques and ideas contributing crucially to major advances in string theory. A large and rapidly growing number of both mathematicians and physicists are working at the string-theoretic interface between the two academic fields.

    The String-Math conference series aims to bring together leading mathematicians and mathematically minded physicists working in this interface.

    This volume contains the proceedings of the inaugural conference in this series, String-Math 2011, which was held June 6–11, 2011, at the University of Pennsylvania.
