Felix Klein Lectures

Applications of the six-dimensional (2,0) theories to Physical Mathematics

Professor Gregory W. Moore

Date: October 1 - 12, 10:15 - 11:45 am

Venue: Lipschitz hall, Mathematics Center



Physicists have argued for the existence of a hypothetical set of interacting six-dimensional quantum field theory with maximal superconformal symmetry. We will explain some of the physical intuition behind these claims and then dwell at length on various mathematical applications to BPS invariants, wall-crossing, Hitchin systems, HyperKahler geometry, and, time permitting, other areas of Physical Mathematics.
