School on conformal blocks in mathematics and physics.
15-19 oct. 2012
ICMAT - Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas - Madrid (Espagne)
The school will focus on various aspects of the theory of conformal blocks in geometry and physics. This research field is one of the examples of the fertile interaction between these two disciplines. There will be lectures on the following topics: unitarity of the KZ/Hitchin connection, divisors over the moduli space of n-pointed rational curves, identification between the conformal field theory construction of the topological quantum field theory (TQFT) and the TQFT based on knot theory, toric algebras and combinatorics of the Verlinde formula.
Discipline scientifique : Géométrie algébrique
