      Multiple zeta values in geometry and number theory

      AbstractMultiple zeta values are a mysterious class of real numbers that appear in many branches of pure mathematics and in theoretical physics. I will explain some of the basic theory and problems surrounding multiple zeta values (from a more algebraic or number theoretic viewpoint). I will then discuss where multiple zeta values (or slight generalisations thereof) appear some more geometric o...

      Multiple Zeta Values in the theory of harmonics maps

      AbstractI would like to explain how multiple zeta values appear very naturally when trying to explicitly parametrise very symmetric harmonic maps from surfaces into the round 3-sphere or to the hyperbolic 3-space.Speaker IntroI was born in Wuhan and grew up in the little German town Göttingen, which was home to an extraordinary amount of great Mathematicians (and Nobel prize winners) including ...
