"Descartes, Euler, Gauss: From surfaces to integers". Hirzebruch lecture by Werner Ballmann on Monday, November 13

University Club Bonn

Geometric quantities of a surface, like distance, angle, or area, change when the surface is deformed. Euler discovered a quantity, the Euler characteristic, which remains unchanged. The formula of Gauss-Bonnet, a landmark result of mathematics, relates Euler characteristic with geometry. In the talk, I will present ideas of Descartes, Euler, and Gauss related to this formula.

Workshop "Young Researchers in String Mathematics"

November 27 - 30, 2017


The workshop is an occasion to foster interactions and initiate new collaborations between young researchers active in Germany and nearby countries, who are all interested in mathematical aspects of string theory: mirror symmetry, enumerative geometry of curves (Gromov-Witten theory, Donaldson-Thomas, stable pair invariants, ...) and their modularity, integrability, and algebraic properties, tropical geometry, topological recursion, wall-crossing phenomena and Bridgeland stability conditions, relations to gauge theory, geometric quantization, conformal field theory, etc.
