Mathematics Colloquia and Seminars
Physics of Langlands DualitiesQMAP Seminar
|Speaker:||Philsang Yoo, Northwestern|
|Start time:||Thu, Nov 17 2016, 11:00AM|
In the first part of the talk, I will discuss a joint project with Chris Elliott on realizing the geometric Langlands correspondence as an instance of S-duality by careful analysis of Kapustin and Witten’s work using derived algebraic geometry. In the second part of the talk, I will propose a program to simultaneously capture different instances of Langlands dualities in geometric representation theory through the lens of quantum field theory. No prior knowledge of S-duality, geometric Langlands, or derived algebraic geometry is assumed.
