Videos of the lectures in the workshop “Homological mirror symmetry and higher genus invariants” (Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, May 22-26 2017) are now available on the SCGP video archive.
Mohammed Abouzaid (Columbia University), one of the PIs of the Simons Collaboration on Homological Mirror Symmetry, was named one of four winners of the 2017 New Horizons Prizes in Mathematics. The New Horizons Prizes, which were announced alongside the Breakthrough Prizes at a star-studded gala event on December 4, 2016, reward promising early-career researchers who have produced important work in fundamental physics or mathematics.
Abouzaid’s prize was awarded “for distinguishing cotangent bundles of exotic spheres, constructing the wrapped Fukaya category with Paul Seidel, and other decisive contributions to symplectic topology and mirror symmetry.”
Welcome to the postdocs who have recently joined our collaboration:
- Netanel Blaier (Harvard/Brandeis)
- Colin Diemer (IHES)
- Yoel Groman (Columbia)
- Andrew Harder (Miami)
- Justin Hilburn (Penn)
- Hansol Hong (Harvard/Brandeis)
- Mauro Porta (Penn)
Three others will be joining us in 2017:
- Zachary Sylvan (Columbia)
- Dmitry Tonkonog (Berkeley)
- Jingyu Zhao (Harvard/Brandeis)
Mirror symmetry and our collaboration are the subject of this article in the Simons Foundation’s annual report.
The Simons Foundation has announced the establishment of two new Simons Collaborations in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences, including ours.
