GT Graduate Student Seminar: The Kapustin-Witten Equations And Their Dimensional Reduction
To participate in this seminar, please register HERE.
This will be an introduction to Witten's program to obtain topological information about knots from studying solutions of Kapustin-Witten equations. I will state the main conjecture and explain the difficulties involved in proving it. Then I will introduce the dimensional reduction of KW, explain the significance of its solutions to Witten's program and sketch a Kobayashi-Hitchin type correspondence for such solutions. Time permitting I will discuss my own work on the subject and future directions.No Notes/Supplements Uploaded
