Solvay Workshop on "Higher Spin Gauge Theories, Topological Field Theory and Deformation Quantization"

Publié le 13 janvier 2020 Mis à jour le 13 janvier 2020

Over the recent years several fascinating connections have been discovered between Higher Spin gauge theories, Deformation Quantisation and Topological Field Theory. As it often happens, many concepts and structures are independently (re)discovered by mathematicians and theoretical physicists from different perspectives. The workshop is designed to bring together, for the first time, leading experts in these fields so as to foster cross-fertilization of ideas between the communities and trigger the production of new lines of research.
