### The Kapustin-Witten equations with Nahm pole boundary conditions

**QMAP Seminar**

Speaker: | Rafe Mazzeo, Stanford |

Location: | Physics 432 |

Start time: | Thu, Oct 15 2015, 3:10PM |

The relatively new gauge-theoretic Kapustin-Witten equations on four- and five-manifolds have been proposed by Witten as a means to obtain knot invariants of three-manifolds. The analytic underpinnings of this theory are still in their beginning stages. I will describe the overall scheme and explain the analytic issues which are in the process of being resolved.

Note this seminar is in the physics building.
