Quantum Curves, Integrability and Cluster Algebras

Jan de Gier

  • 13 Dec 2021 - 18 Dec 2021
    8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Organisers:
Leonid Chekhov (Michigan State University)
Paul Norbury (University of Melbourne)
Michael Shapiro (Michigan State University)
Norman Do (Monash University)
Elba Garcia-Failde (IRIF, Paris Diderot University)

Program Description:
This program will gather leading experts in the areas of quantum spectral curves, topological recursion and cluster algebras to address recent advances and proliferate new connections between these fields. Such a meeting is particularly timely as a recent connection between deformation quantisation and topological recursion by Kontsevich and Soibelman. This progress is accompanied by recent progress in quantum cluster algebras and their relation to quantum monodromies of Fuchsian systems. Connections between these fields are apparent from the physics perspective and research is now under way to make rigorous sense of these relationships.

Speakers:
Alexander Alexandrov (IBS Center for Geometry and Physics, Korea)
Vincent Bouchard (University of Alberta, Canada)
Alexandr Buryak (Higher School of Economics University, Russia)
Elba Garcia-Failde (Institut de mathématiques de Jussieu – Paris Rive Gauche, France)

Yi Huang (Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, Tsinghua University, China)
Nick Ovenhouse (University of Minnesota, USA)
Gus Schrader (Columbia University, USA)
Anton Zeitlin (Louisiana State University, USA)
