The mathematics of string theory and quantum field theory

Scientists in the Department of Theoretical Physics and at the Mathematical Science Institute are collaborating in understanding the mathematics behind String Theory and Quantum Field Theory. This involves applying fairly recent mathematical disciplines, such as non-commutative geometry, but also involves developing and studying new mathematics suggested by, and needed for, a further development of the theory.

Examples of research in this area include:
