2018 Application: Quantum Knot Homology and Supersymmetric Gauge Theories
Sunday, March 4th through Saturday, March 10th, 2018
Email address
Application Deadline: 12/15/17
Conference Description:
This conference is devoted to the study of quantum knot homologies and related invariants. The name of this area of research already indicates that this is an interdisciplinary topic: such homologies are of interest to mathematicians (in particular topologists and representation theorists), while quantum phenomena have in principle their origin in physics.

There are communities of both mathematicians and physicists who work on these topics from different perspectives, they use different tools, and sometimes the same tools but described in different languages. The main aim of the conference is to bring researchers from those two communities together, establish a common language and explain important results to each other, summarize the status of the field, and specify goals and set a common program for future research.

Scientific Organizing Committee:
Sergei Gukov, California Institute of Technology
*Mikhail Khovanov, Columbia University
Andrew Lobb, Durham University
Piotr Sułkowski, University of Warsaw

*Denotes physicist in charge of diversity. The Aspen Center for Physics is committed to a significant participation of women and under-represented groups in all of its programs.
