BPS states, topological recursion, exact WKB and abelianisation
25-28 of November 2019
Recent progress in the study of BPS states in string
theory and in supersymmetric field theories, as well
as on the theory of topological recursion,
gives hints towards profound connections with the exact WKB method from the mathematical study of
differential equations with a large parameter, and the abelianisation of flat connections on Riemann surfaces.
The goals of our workshop are to bring together some leading
experts in the field to stimulate the interactions
between these lines of research, and to introduce young researchers and PhD students to attractive
topics of current research with a rich potential for
List of speakers:
On Tuesday, the colloquium of pure mathematics will be given by Jorgen Andersen. You are welcome to attend. See here for more details.
