Mini-Workshop: Heterotic Strings, Derived Categories, and Stacks
MetadataShow full item record
Period13 Nov - 19 Nov 2005
This workshop brought together both mathematicians and physicists interested in mathematical aspects of heterotic strings and physical aspects of derived categories and stacks. These three topics in mathematics and physics are all involved in modern approaches to and extensions of mirror symmetry, and much of the technical machinery in understanding their physics and mathematics overlap, so by bringing together experts in these areas we hope to help spur further developments.
