Minhyong Kim (Zoom) - Some remarks on the interface of arithmetic geometry and quantum field theory

When: Thursday, May 21, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: Zoom, Zoom

Speaker: Minhyong Kim

Arithmetic geometry is the study *arithmetic schemes*, mathematical structures that have simultaneously an arithmetic and a geometric structure. The prototype is the so-called *spectrum of the integers* which is a geometric object on which the integers form the ring of functions. I will explain some of the difficult and classical problems that arise in their study, and how ideas of physics, especially topological quantum field theory, may be helpful.
