May 8-10,2009
Workshop on Connections in Geometry and Physics
held at the Perimeter Institute, Waterloo

Organizers:
Marco Gualtieri (University of Toronto)
Ruxandra Moraru (University of Waterloo)
Spiro Karigiannis (University of Waterloo)
McKenzie Wang (McMaster University)


WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES: Our main objective is to gather together geometers, from Canada and around the world, who work at the interface between mathematics and physics. A secondary objective is to further increase Canada’s presence and visibility in geometry within the wider international mathematical community.

OVERVIEW OF THE SUBJECT AREAS

1. Elliptic and parabolic equations in geometry
2. Geometry and topology of moduli spaces.
3. Structures in symplectic geometry
