Research Training Group 1670

The quest for a unified theory of quantum theory and gravity has long been an important source of inspiration for mathematics. The advent of string theory with its need for a much broader mathematical treatment has brought a new quality to this interaction. In fact, string theory not only continues to suggest challenging and surprising mathematical conjectures, the string-theoretic viewpoint also links areas of mathematics that were previously considered largely unrelated.

The Research Training Group 1670 offers a structured doctoral training on mathematical and mathematical physics topics in this context. A special emphasis is on acquiring literacy in QFT and string theory to be able to study original physics sources and to assess them properly.

The program builds on an established and very lively collaboration of the Department of Mathematics of the University of Hamburg with the II. Institute of Theoretical Physics and the DESY Theory Group within the Center of Mathematical Physics.
