#### Quantum field theory: from physical concepts to math

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

#### Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Representation theory and a little bit of quantum field theory

Abstract：One of the central foci of representation theory in the 20th century was the representation theory of Lie algebras, starting with finite dimensional algebras and expanding to a rich, but still mysterious infinite dimensional theory. In this century, we realized that this was only one special case of a bigger theory, with new sources of interesting non-commutative algebras whose repres...
