A workshop on the philosophical foundations of geometry and physics, held on the occasion of Gordon Belot and David Malament jointly winning the Lakatos Award.. Date: Wednesday, 4 May , – Location: LAK More Details: Calendar Entry Lakatos Award Ceremony: To follow the next evening, pm. Speakers: Gordon Belot (Michigan), Fay Dowker (Imperial), Klaas Landsman. This is my favorite book on mathematical physics. We used the pre-published edition in graduate school. I bought the first edition as soon as it came out. Super book for anyone who wants to learn about the mathematics used in Physics, from the point of view of a mathematician/5.

The Geometry and Physics of Knots Book Summary: Deals with an area of research that lies at the crossroads of mathematics and physics. The material presented here rests primarily on the pioneering work of Vaughan Jones and Edward Witten relating polynomial invariants of knots to a topological quantum field theory in 2+1 dimensions. Geometry and topology for physicists — in rough order of increasing sophistication: Gregory L. Naber, Topology, Geometry and Gauge Fields: Foundations, Springer, Berlin, Chris Isham, Modern Differential Geometry for Physicists, World Scientific Press, Singapore, (Isham is an expert on general relativity so this is especially good.

"Geometry and Physics" addresses mathematicians wanting to understand modern physics, and physicists wanting to learn geometry. It gives an introduction to modern quantum field theory and related Author: Jürgen Jost. Geometry, Topology and Physics by Maximilian Kreuzer. Publisher: Technische Universitat Wien Number of pages: Description: From the table of contents: Topology (Homotopy, Manifolds, Surfaces, Homology, Intersection numbers and the mapping class group); Differentiable manifolds; Riemannian geometry; Vector bundles; Lie algebras and representations; Complex manifolds.
