Workshop on gauge theory and Floer homology

TIME:December 19-24, 2019
LOCATION:Room 1304, Sciences Building No. 1

      Mathematical gauge theory studies partial differential equations on connections of fiber bundles. Since the ground-breaking work of Donaldson in 1982, gauge theory has been successfully applied to the study of low dimensional topology, symplectic topology, and algebraic geometry. In the late 1980s, Floer combined the ideas from gauge theory and Morse theory and developed homological invariants for three-manifolds which are now called Floer homology groups. Gauge theory and Floer theory have now become essential tools in low dimensional topology, and a major topic of current research.

      The workshop will have four mini-courses on different aspects of recent developments of gauge theory and Floer theory. In addition, there will be review sections guided by junior researchers. The goal of the workshop is to bring together students and researchers at all levels interested in these areas to share recent developments of the field and stimulate further collaborations.

      Accommodation and Travel Information 

      Invited speakers will stay in No.9 building of "Zhong Guan Xin Yuan" Hotel. By default, rooms have been booked for the arrival on December 18 and departure on December 24. The hotel is across the street of Peking University Campus, about 15-20 minutes' walk to  the Lecture Hall.

      PKU will cover hotel accommodations and travel expenses for all speakers. Other participants are responsible for arranging and paying for their own reservations for hotel accommodations and travel expenses.  

      We have a very limited amount of travel support for junior researchers (especially graduate students.),  To apply for the travel support, please send email to  chenpingping@math.pku.edu.cn by November 10.

      From the Airport to the Hotel: The most convenient way to get the hotel from the airport is to take a taxi. It costs about RMB 120 yuans. You are also responsible to pay the toll of 10 yuans. So you need some pocket money. A possible way to get cash is to find an ATM in the lobby of the airport. You may print this slip and show it to the taxi driver.
