    The h-principle Joel Fine The existence of certain objects in differential topology have obstructions lying in homotopy groups. This unpublished work was partially supported by grant from the Simons Foundation. Classical examples are the signature, the A-hat genus, the Todd genus and the arithmetic genus. This prompted an entirely new research area. I will introduce them in the context of the classification problem of compact 3-manifolds, and review some of their basic properties.

    Integrability of twistor space is equivalent to a condition on the curvature of the four-manifold, namely anti-self-duality. If the group has torsion, these numbers will be infinite, but we might still get useful invariants by considering a classifying space for proper, rather than free, actions. Eliashberg and M. I'll start by defining operads and the bar construction which is a duality between operads.

    He ended his talk with a sentiment that I would heartily agree with, that he thought the time had come for a deeper investigation into quantum field theory. Which is nice. This translates into the topological condition that any finite subcomplex of a covering space embeds in some finite cover. A Note on Toric Contact Geometry. The aim of the talk is to describe this basic structure, and explain the connection with group theory.

Self-dual Riemannian geometry and instantons book

There are many examples of such spaces, such as a wide class of Riemannian manifolds, particular sub-Riemannian manifolds, the Carnot—Caratheodory spaces, and also many fractal sets.

Michael Douglas, who is joining Stony Brook next year as the first permanent member of the Simons Center, spoke on Physics and Geometry: past, present and future. Open problems. One important step in carrying out this programme is to understand the compactness problem.

Heegaard splittings of 3-manifolds. An introduction to twistors in four-dimensional Riemannian geometry Joel Fine Penrose's twistor construction associates to every Riemannian four-manifold a six-manifold with an almost complex structure, called twistor space.

Boyer, Krzysztof Galickiand Michael Nakamaye. Of course, no prior knowledge of black holes, Poisson or quasi-Poisson structures will be assumed.

Stony Brook Dialogues in Mathematics and Physics

In the final part I will talk about the Bochner theorems and how this gives traffic in the other direction i. Winternitz, J. Scott went on to show the importance of subgroup separability in the theory of 3-manifolds, in particular its connection with the Virtually Haken Conjecture.

The connections of interest are the so-called instantons, the solutions of the anti-self-dual Yang—Mills equation When is the circle group, the anti-self-duality equation is linear and the instantons are completely described by Hodge theory.

Piccinni and M. Joyce, 'A twistor transform for complex manifolds with connection', Twistor Newsletter 35 We will also discuss some applications. Hopefully is the local geometry beomes dominated that of the fibres. Algebraic geometry over groups Henry Wilton Zlil Sela's solution to the Tarski problem is a tour de force of ingenious ideas and original techniques.

Gross and D. The first part of the talk will introduce the notion of Ricci-soliton and extremal metric and show how they generalise Einstein and CSCK metrics repectively.

Toric geometry III: the dual picture Richard Thomas I have given lots of symplectic toric lectures, this one will assume nothing and do everything dually, via algebraic geometry.

Kirill Krasnov

There is a beautiful and potentially deep geometry underlying the chiral 4D formalisms, and I have spent more than a decade learning and developing the chiral language for 4D GR.

Hopefully, time not allowing, I will skip the gruesome analysis necessary to obtain a unique and smooth solution for all time and concentrate on the interesting energy functional, defined on the space of metrics using Chern-Bott invariants a somewhat Chern-Simons-like constructionto show that the flow indeed converges to our desired YM connection - subject to a stability assumption along some curve.

Classifying spaces for proper actions and Bredon cohomology Michael Tweedale I'll start with a gentle introduction to algebraic and geometric dimensions of groups for the benefit of those who haven't heard me talk about it ad nauseam already. Suppl 75 One can see that any regular polyhedron exept the icosahedron generates an integral affine structure on the sphere.

This requires reviewing the twistor correspondence, which relates anti-self-dual conformal Riemannian 4-manifolds to complex 3-manifolds, or twistors. During the remainder of the talk I will develop the notion of 'pictures' which will be used to show how these two manifestations of crossed modules are related.Spectacular results in the topology of -manifolds have been obtained by S.K.

Donaldson: Consider a principal -bundle on an oriented Riemannian -manifold, for a compact Lie group with an invariant scalar product on its Lie algebra. The connections of interest are the so-called instantons, the solutions of the anti-self-dual Yang–Mills equation. Apr 05,  · Is Singer visited Stony Brook in the summer of and talked to the physicists about gauge theories and geometry.

In early he traveled to Oxford, where he, Atiyah and Hitchin began working on instantons, i.e. solutions of the self-dual Yang-Mills equations.

Get this from a library! Self-dual Riemannian geometry and instantons: proceedings of a Summer School on Yang-Mills-Equations held in Kagel, [Thomas Friedrich; Yang-Mills-Equations.;]. Applications from condensed matter physics, statistical mechanics and elementary particle theory appear in the book.

An obvious omission here is general relativity--we apologize for this. We originally intended to discuss general relativity. However, both the need to keep the size of the book within the reasonable limits and the fact that accounts of the topology and geometry of relativity are.

The key to interpreting these formulas is the isomorphism Derdzinski mentions in part (b) of Lemma 2: $$ \Lambda^2 T_xM \cong \mathfrak s \mathfrak o(4).

$$ Note that $\Lambda^2 T_xM$ refers to the space of $2$-vectors (alternating contravariant $2$-tensors), not $2$-forms (which would be denoted $\Lambda^2 T_x^*M$ in his notation). What this isomorphism means is that a $2$-vector can be.
