Topological order, tensor networks and subfactors

MATHEMATICAL PICTURE LANGUAGE

December 1, 2020      10:00 am
Speaker: Yasuyuki Kawahigashi - University of Tokyo

We present recent progress on studies of 2-dimensional topological order in terms of tensor networks and its connections to subfactor theory. We explain how Drinfel'd centers and higher relative commutants...

DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY

November 24, 2020      8:00 pm
Speaker: Yang Li - MIT

One possible interpretation of the SYZ conjecture is that for a polarized family of CY manifolds near the large complex structure limit, there is a special Lagrangian fibration on the...

Speaker: Zhengwei Liu - Tsinghua University

TITLE: Subfactors--in Memory of Vaughan Jones ABSTRACT: Jones initiated modern subfactor theory in early 1980s and investigated this area for his whole academic life. Subfactor theory has both deep and broad connections...
