Next Week

Here is a selection of seminars that might be of interest to string theorists in Oxford:

On Monday at 12:45 in Virtual, a seminar in the String Theory series:
Oren Bergman (Technion)
Generalized symmetries and holography in ABJM-like theories -- ZOOM SEMINAR
On Monday at 14:00 in zoom, a seminar in the Astrophysics Colloquia series:
Renne Hlozek (Dunlap)
On Monday at 14:15 in Virtual, a seminar in the Geometry and Analysis series:
Ailsa Keating (Cambridge)
Homological mirror symmetry for log Calabi-Yau surfaces
Further information: Given a log Calabi-Yau surface Y with maximal boundary D, I'll explain how to construct a mirror Landau-Ginzburg model, and sketch a proof of homological mirror symmetry for these pairs when (Y,D) is distinguished within its deformation class (this is mirror to an exact manifold). I'll explain how to relate this to the total space of the SYZ fibration predicted by Gross--Hacking--Keel, and, time permitting, explain ties with earlier work of Auroux--Katzarkov--Orlov and Abouzaid. Joint work with Paul Hacking.
On Tuesday at 14:00 in zoom, a seminar in the Cosmology series:
Adam Amara (University of Portsmouth)
On Thursday at 13:00 in virtual, a seminar in the Dalitz Seminar in Fundamental Physics series:
Joseph Tooby-Smith (Cambridge)
On Thursday, June 4, at 15:30 in via Zoom, a seminar in the Machine Learning and Physics series:
Peter Dueben (ECMWF)
Machine learning for weather predictions
On Thursday, June 4, at 16:00 in, a seminar in the Theoretical Particle Physics series:
Pierpaolo Mastrolia (University of Padova)
QCD amplitudes
