Overview

This program is a sequel to the highly successful “String and M-Theory: The New Geometry of the 21st Century” conference held from 10-14 Dec 2018, where we will again bring together pure and string mathematicians who work on the mathematical foundations of string/M-theory and string mathematics, respectively, to further investigate and explore the mathematical underpinnings and implications of string/M-theory, so as to gain a better understanding of the “new kind of geometry” that it embodies. Apart from bringing us closer to obtaining our sought-after “Theory of Everything”, this effort will also help advance pure mathematics and theoretical physics in a nontrivial way, as a better understanding of the “new kind of geometry” that string/M-theory embodies, would mean that new mathematics can be formulated, while current physical models which can be realized within the framework of string/M-theory can also be more deeply understood.
