Wegweiser für:   Institut Workshop String Geometry and Loop Spaces Home

Welcome to the webpages of the workshop

The workshop took place July 28 - August 1, 2014 at the Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Greifswald.

String geometry is a rather new area of mathematics that combines topology, differential geometry and higher topos theory. String geometry is supposed to provide important foundations for fermionic string theories; in terms of this motivation, string geometry corresponds to a version of spin geometry on loop spaces. This correspondence imposes interesting questions for the geometry and topology of loop spaces, for instance concerning an appropriate index theory on loop spaces.
