    SPEAKER Nicolai Reshetikhin


    EVENT DATE 2023 05 /15 (Mon.)

    EVENT TIME 19:20- 20:55

    VENUE West Lecture Theatre


    Nicolai Reshetikhin is a mathematical physicist working at the interface of quantum field theory, representation theory and geometry.


    The talk will focused on how quantum field theory emerged as a physical theory and on how mathematical methods were evolving. This was a mutually stimulating process. Physics got a magnificent variety of mathematical tools. Mathematics got many new concepts either emerged from physics or motivated by physics.
