SEMINAR: Joint Physics and Mathematics Colloquium


Everyone is warmly invited to the Joint Physics and Mathematics Colloquium.
Title: "Dualities in Mathematics and Physics"
Abstract:
In this talk I will review some geometric analogues of
the Fourier transform, which arise in String Theory under the
name of ‘dualities’. In particular, I will discuss global aspects
of Tduality and mention some recent generalisations. Tduality has
important applications in different areas of mathematics, such as in
differential geometry, algebraic topology, operator algebras,
noncommutative geometry, as well as in physics.
This is a talk aimed at nonspecialists and will include many examples.
Cheese and wine will be served in the Mathematics Common Room from 5.00 pm.
