Homological Mirror Symmetry (minicourse)

Homological mirror symmetry for the pair of pants
Homological mirror symmetry postulates a derived equivalence between the wrapped Fukaya category of an exact symplectic manifold and a category of coherent sheaves or matrix fa

Law & the Social Sciences Seminar

1:00pm | White-Levy
The interface between law and social inquiry has long been a domain of analysis explored by legal scholars and social scientists.

Analysis Math-Physics Seminar

Applications of twisted technology
Recently we proved with Durcik, Kovac, Skreb variational estimates providing sharp quantitative norm convergence results for bilinear ergodic averages with respect to two commu

Physics Group Meeting

Algebraic EE and Holography
 In the first part of the talk, I’ll explore whether EE’s of subalgebras not organized by position space in a holographic CFT may be useful for bulk reconstruction.

Analysis Math-Physics Seminar

On structure results for intertwining operators
The intertwining wave operators are basic objects in the scattering theory of a Hamiltonian given as the sum of a Laplacian with a potential.

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) Colloquium

The Long and the Short of Collisions in Strong Magnetic Fields
For plasmas in a strong magnetic field, like-particle collisions approximately-conserve a cyclotron adiabatic invariant that limits the sharing of energy between cyclotron moti
