Geometric, Algebraic and Topological Methods in Quantum Field Theory






This school, whose topics lie at the threshold of geometry, topology, algebra and quantum field theory, is the eleventh of a series of summer schools organized in Colombia every other year since July 1999. It is addressed to both physicists and mathematicians with a master’s level in either of the fields and offers courses on the following topics:

  • Asymptotic symmetries and integrable systems in gravity, by M. Cárdenas,
  • Groupoids and stacks in generalized geometry, by M. Gualtieri,
  • Cobordism and K-theory in the string swampland, by O. Loaiza,
  • Perturbative quantum field theory, by K. Rejzner,
  • The topology of T-duality, by T. Schick.

Additional introductory courses will be offered that are meant to fill in specific knowledge gaps for students of one discipline mathematics or physics, in the other discipline.
