A unified perspective on integrability

November 6, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

11/6/2019 Colloquium
SpeakerKevin Costello (Perimeter Institute)
Title: A unified perspective on integrability
Abstract: Two-dimensional integrable field theories, and the integrable PDEs which are their classical limits, play an important role in mathematics and physics.   I will describe a geometric construction of integrable field theories which yields (essentially) all known integrable theories as well as many new ones.  Billiard dynamical systems will play a surprising role. Based on work (partly in progress) with Gaiotto, Lee, Yamazaki, Witten, and Wu.
