String Theory I 弦理论 I

Lecturer Sergio Cecotti (Research Fellow)

Time 10:40 - 12:15, Mon,Wed

Venue 1110

Online Zoom: 928 682 9093 PW:BIMSA

Language English

Record Yes

Prerequisite

Basic mathematics (calculus, algebra, etc.); a textbook knowledge of General Relativity and Quantum Field Theory (including the very basics facts about supersymmetry); the elementary notions of differential geometry (Riemannian geometry, bundles, connections, etc.), Lie groups, and algebraic topology (homology & cohomology groups,etc.).

Abstract

A comprehsive course in String Theory. String Theory I covers the foundations of the theory, the construction of the various string theories, with emphasis on the supersymmetric ones, and the basic computational techniques. The emphasis is on SUSY string theories, the bosonic string is used mainly as a didactical laboratory where we introduce basic ideas and techniques in the simplest possible context. While the approach is meant to be didactical, one tries to be mathematically precise, and self-contained. Conformal field theory in two-dimensions is introduced from scratch, with the topics relevant to string theory discussed in detail. String Theory II covers the physics of the supersymmetric strings, from the perturbative regime to the non-perturbative one. The theory of supergravity and anomalies are reviewed from a geometric perspective. BPS objects and non-renormalization theorems are described from different viewpoints. Calabi-Yau compactifications are discussed in detail. The course covers also some advanced stuff such as the basic ideas of M- and F-theory, black hole entropy, and so on.

Lecturer Intro.

Sergio Cecotti graduated in physics at the University of Pisa in 1979 and has worked at the Harvard University, the University of Pisa, CERN, etc.. In 2014, he became a full professor at SISSA. He has published about 100 papers with total number of citations 7260. His h-index is 44.

Language English

Record No

Abstract

In this course we look at the life and work of some of the most influential Mathematicians including David Hilbert, Felix Klein, Emmy Noether and Bernhard Riemann. The aim is twofold. On the one hand, we would like to introduce the historical figures and convey the flavor of how Mathematics were conducted at that time, on the other hand, I would also like to show how (in a possibly modern interpretation) their work continue to be influencial today. Along the way we will also be encountering some specifics of the German culture and in particular the different educational and academic system.

Lecturer Intro.

I 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 all the Mathematicians discussed in the course. I studied economics at the FU Berlin and Mathematics at TU Berlin from 2003-2007 and obtained my PhD from Eberhard Karls University Tübingen in 2012. Thereafter, I stayed in Tübingen as a Postdoc till I got a Juniorprofessorship in 2017 at the Leibniz University in Hannover.

Minimal Surfaces 极小曲面

Lecturer Sebastian Heller (Research Fellow)

Time 10:40 - 12:15, Mon,Wed

Venue JCY-3

Online Zoom: 293 812 9202 PW:BIMSA

Language English

Record Yes

Prerequisite

It is necessary to be familiar with the basic concepts of linear algebra and calculus. In order to be able to follow the course throughout, it is beneficial to have some basic knowledge about differential geometry or manifolds, and to be familiar with some complex analysis. However, it is also possible to make up for this within the course.

Abstract

The investigation and construction of surfaces with special geometric properties has always been an important subject in differential geometry. Of particular interest are minimal surfaces and constant mean curvature (CMC) surfaces in space forms. Global properties surfaces were first considered by Hopf, showing that all CMC spheres are round. This result was generalized by Alexandrov [2] in the 1950s, who showed that the round spheres are the only embedded compact CMC surfaces in \$\mathbb R^3\$, while there do not exist any compact minimal surfaces in euclidean space and hyperbolic 3-space due to the maximum principle. In contrast, there are many compact and embedded minimal surfaces in the 3-sphere, the best known examples being the Clifford torus and the Lawson surfaces, in addition to the totally geodesic 2-sphere, and a full classification is beyond the current knowledge. One reason for the beauty and depth of minimal surface theory is that there are many different methods and tools with which to construct, study, and classify these surfaces. In this course we will first derive basic properties of minimal surfaces in \$\mathbb R^3\$ and introduce some general techniques, and then move on to CMC surfaces in \$\mathbb R^3\$ and minimal surfaces in \$\mathbb S^3.\$ We mainly use differential geometric and complex analytical methods in this course.

Prerequisite Linear algebra, basics of Riemmanian geometry

Abstract

The classification of Riemannian manifolds with special holonomy contains two “exceptional” cases: G2 and Spin(7). Manifolds with holonomy contained in G2 or Spin(7) are called G2-manifolds or Spin(7)-manifolds, respectively. In this course, I will introduce various topics of G2 and Spin(7) geometry, mainly focusing on the G2 case. We start from the linear algebra in G2 geometry. Then we study topics such as the structure of a G2-manifold and calibrated geometry/ gauge theory/mirror symmetry on a G2-manifold.

Lecturer Intro.

Kotaro Kawai got a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from the university of Tokyo, and received his Ph.D from Tohoku university in 2013. He was an assistant professor at Gakushuin university in Japan, then he moved to BIMSA this year. Gakushuin University was established as an educational institution for the imperial family and peers, and even today, some members of the imperial family attend this university. There are many eminent professors and Kunihiko Kodaira worked at this university. He majors in differential geometry, focusing on manifolds with exceptional holonomy. These manifolds are considered to be analogues of Calabi-Yau manifolds, and higher dimensional analogues of gauge theory are expected on these manifolds. This topic is also related to physics, and he think that this is an exciting research field.

Prerequisite Simplicial complex theory and simplicial set theory.

Abstract

The notion of fibre bundle first arose out of questions posed in the 1930s on the topology and geometry of manifolds. By the year 1950, the definition of fibre bundle had been clearly formulated, the homotopy classification of fibre bundles achieved, and the theory of characteristic classes of fibre bundles developed by several mathematicians: Chern, Pontrjagin, Stiefel, and Whitney. Fiber bundle theory is not only important in topology and differential geometry, but also is widely used in other branches of mathematics and physics. This course mainly introduces some basic concepts of fiber bundles and the application of fiber bundles in homology theory in comparison with the geometric level and the simple level.

Abstract

Prismatic cohomology, which is developed in a recent work of Bhatt-Scholze, is a cohomology theory for schemes over p-adic rings. It is considered to be an overarching cohomology theory in p-adic geometry, unifying etale, de Rham, and crystalline cohomology. Due to wide-ranging applications in p-adic Hodge theory and p-adic Galois representations, it is one of the central topics of active research. In this course, we will start by going over motivational background in p-adic cohomology theories, and then give a rough overview of main ideas and results in the paper "Prisms and prismatic cohomology" by Bhatt-Scholze. If time permits, we will also briefly discuss how the prismatic theory may reveal a deeper understanding of p-adic Galois representations.

Abstract

Background: The modern theory of Markov chain mixing is the result of the convergence, in the 1980's and 1990's, of several threads: For statistical physicists, Markov chains become useful in Monte Carlo simulation The mixing time determines the running time for simulation. Deep connections were found between rapid mixing and spatial properties of spin systems. In theoretical computer science, Markov chains play a key role in sampling and approximate counting algorithms. At the same time, mathematicians were intensively studying random walks on groups. Both spectral methods and probabilistic techniques, such as coupling, played important roles. Ingenious constructions of expander graphs (on which random walks mix especially fast) were found. The connection between eigenvalues and expansion properties was first discovered in differential geometry, but then became central to the study of Markov chain mixing.

Prerequisite Commutative Algebra (Atiyah McDonald or Rottman), Algebraic Geometry (Hartshorne or Grothendieck’s EGA/SGA)

Abstract

Derived Algebraic Geometry is a machinery regarded as an extension of algebraic geometry, whose goal is to study exotic geometric settings and situations that might occur in algebraic geometry where algebraic geometry might not be able to rigorously study. Take for instance the example of intersection of two subvarieties, X, Y, in a fixed ambient smooth algebraic variety Z. We have the notion of "nice intersection" (or generic intersection) of X and Y in Z, which is equivalent to transverse intersection of the X and Y. In this case the span of the tangent space generated by tangent spaces of X and Y is equal to the tangent space of Z and their locus of intersection X∩Y will be of expected dimension. Now take for instance a “bad intersection” of X and Y, that is non-generic or non-transverse intersection of X and Y in Z. The latter situation might occur if X and Y intersect over points or loci with higher multiplicities or when their locus of intersection is not of expected dimension. Certainly such situation has been addressed in algebraic geometry, using cohomology theory, that is, one realizes the locus of intersection, X∩Y, as a cohomology class in the ambient cohomology theory of Z (for instance an element in de Rham cohomology of Z, or in complex cobordism ring of Z, or an element of the K-theory in the intersection ring of Z) and studies the intersection of X and Y cohomologically. The drawback of this approach is that X ∩Y is realized only as a cohomology class and not as a geometric object any more. The Derived Algebraic Geometry allows one to construct a geometric object associated to the non-generic locus of intersection of X and Y, which is called the “Derived Scheme”. It is roughly speaking the homotipical perturbation of the naive locus of intersection of X and Y, and contains the data of higher multiplicity components of X∩Y or components with defects of expected dimension. The machinery of homotopy theory in derived algebraic geometry enables one to identify the points in derived intersection of X and Y as points which lie in X and Y respectively, together with certain continuous homotopy maps between them (as opposed to generic intersection of X and Y where points in X∩Y are given by points which lie both in X and Y simultaneously). Similarly taking “bad” quotients of algebraic schemes/varieties by non-proper or non-free actions is yet another example which can be modeled geometrically and rigorously by derived algebraic geometry. In usual setting the points in quotient of a variety X by the action of a free proper group G are the ones that lie in the orbit space of elements of G. However in instances where the group G is acting non-freely on X, the derived algebraic geometry enables one to realize the points in the "bad quotient" as points which lie in the orbit of elements of G up to homotopy, that is two points, a and b, lie in the orbit of an element of G if they are related to each other by a homotopy path or a path with homotopical structure in that orbit. The course sets foundations to such theory of derived schemes, and follows by discussing the derived moduli spaces, and specially the derived structure of the moduli spaces of coherent sheaves, and some applications of derived geometry in enumerative geometry (specially the Donaldson-Thomas theory) of Calabi-Yau 3 folds and 4 folds will be discussed at the end.

Lecturer Intro.

I am a Professor of pure Mathematics, specialized in Algebraic geometry, Differential Geometry and Mathematics of String Theory. I am a Full Research Fellow (equivalent to Full Professor in the US and Europe) at Yanqi Lake Beijing Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Applications in Beijing, as well as a senior member at Harvard University CMSA, and a visiting professor at Institute for the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at University of Miami. During the past 5 years I have been a senior personnel at Simons Collaboration Program for Homological Mirror Symmetry at Harvard University Center for Mathematical Sciences and Applications (CMSA), as well as Harvard Physics department (2020-2021), and an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Institut for Mathematik and Center for Quantum Geometry of Moduli Spaces at Aarhus University in Denmark. My work is mainly focused on Gromov Witten theory, Donaldson Thomas theory, Calabi-Yau geometries, and mathematical aspects of String theory. I study geometry of moduli spaces of sheaves and curves on Calabi Yau spaces, some of which arise in the study of mathematics of string theory. In my research I have worked on understanding dualities between geometry of such moduli spaces over complex varieties of dimension 2,3,4 and currently I am working on extension of these projects from derived geometry and geometric representation theory point of view. In joint work with Shing-Tung Yau (BIMSA, YMSC, Tsinghua, Harvard Math, Harvard CMSA, and Harvard Physics departments), Cody Long (Harvard Physics), and Cumrun Vafa (Harvard Math and Physics departments) I worked on geometry moduli spaces of sheaves with non-homolomorphic support and their associated non-BPS (non-holomorphic) counting invariants. In 2019 I recieved IRFD "Research Leader" grant (approx \$1M) on my project "Embedded surfaces, dualities and quantum number theory". The project has additionally been co-financed by Harvard University CMSA (Approx total. \$400K). Detail of IRFD "Research Leader" grant (\$1M). --The grant has recently been extended until 2027!

Abstract

The most widely used nowadays are the number theoretical based cryptosystems such as RSA, DSA, and ECC. However, due to Peter Shor's Algorithm, such cryptosystems would become insecure if a large Quantum computer is built. We need to develop a new family of cryptosystems that can resist quantum computers attacks. Researchers usually use Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) to denote this new family. In the course, we will talk about Post-Quantum Cryptography.
