Black holes are perhaps the most celebrated predictions of general relativity. Miraculously, these complicated spacetimes arise as explicit (i.e., exact expression can be written down!) solutions to the vacuum Einstein equation. Looking thes...
Hamiltonian dynamics, Floer theory and symplectic topology
In this lecture, I will convey subtle interplay between dynamics of Hamiltonian flows and La-grangian intersection theory via the analytic theory of Floer homology in symplectic geometry. I will explain how Floer homology theory (`closed str...

Gromov-Witten-Floer theory and Lagrangian intersections in symplectic topology
Gromov introduced the analytic method of pseudoholomorphic curves into the study of symplectic topology in the mid 80's and then Floer broke the conformal symmetry of the equation by twisting the equation by Hamiltonian vector fields. We sur...
Contact instantons and entanglement of Legendrian links
We introduce a conformally invariant nonlinear sigma model on the bulk of contact manifolds with boundary condition on the Legendrian links in any odd dimension. We call any finite energy solution a contact instanton. We also explain its Ha...
Geometric Langlands theory: A bridge between number theory and physics
※ 강연 앞 부분이 잘렸습니다. (강연자료 다운: Geometric Langlands Theory [A Bridge between Number Theory and Physics] (2022.04.28).pdf ) 초록: The Langlands program consists of a tantalizing collection of surprising results and conjectures w...
We introduce the notion of congruences (modulo a prime number) between modular forms of different levels. One of the main questions is to show the existence of a certain newform of an expected level which is congruent to a given modular form...
Free probability is a young mathematical theory that started in the theory of operator algebras. One of the main features of free probability theory is its connection with random matrices. Indeed, free probability provides operator algebrai...
There are three Bieberbach theorems on flat Riemannian manifolds; characterization, rigidity and finiteness. These extend to almost flat manifolds. We discuss characterization, rigidity and finiteness of infra-nilmanifolds (almost flat manif...

초록: Let X be a homogeneous space for a Lie group G. A (G,X)-structure on a manifold M is an atlas of coordinate charts valued in X, such that the changes of coordinates locally lie in G. It is a fundamental question to ask how many ways o...
Root multiplicities of hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebras and Fourier coefficients of modular forms
In this talk, we will consider the hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebra associated to a certain rank 3 Cartan matrix and generalized Kac-Moody algebras that contain the hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebra. The denominator funtions of the generalized Kac-Mo...
