Lie Group Quantum Mathematics Seminar

Sewing and boundary value problems in complex function theory and conformal field theory

Eric Schippers, University of Manitoba

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Friday, 13 April 2018 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

  • Abstract:   Some classical ideas in complex function theory were rediscovered, from another point of view, in two-dimensional conformal field theory. On the other hand, conformal field theory suggests new ways to look at these old objects, and new theorems about them. In this talk I will give examples, with particular attention to sewing, boundary value problems on Riemann surfaces, and generalizations of the classical period maps.
