CMSA recently hosted a three-day Simons Collaboration workshop on Homological Mirror Symmetry. We interviewed Professor Bong Lian (Brandeis University), one of the workshop’s organizers, about the event and the field.
CMSA has been hosting a special program on nonlinear equations. Most physical phenomena, from the gravitating universe to fluid dynamics, are modeled on nonlinear differential equations. The subject also makes close connections with other branches of mathematics. In particular, some of the deepest results in complex geometry and topology were obtained through solutions of nonlinear… Continue reading →
