4TH WORKSHOP ON COMBINATORICS OF MODULI SPACES,
CLUSTER ALGEBRAS, AND TOPOLOGICAL RECURSION
May 26 - 31, 2014,
Laboratoire J.-V. Poncelet, Steklov Mathematical Institute,
and the Higher School of Economics
On the workshop, we are going to cover two years of the development of combinatorial methods in geometry and mathematical physics with an emphasise on new tools, notably, topological recursion, methods related to quantum Riemann surfaces and knot invariants, and algebraic methods, developed in relation to solutions of enumeration problems: Hurwitz numbers, Gromov--Witten invariants, exclusion processes and other. We also address issues of dualities arising in particular between cluster and field-theoretical theories.
We hope to bring together specialists actively working in the field for exchanging ideas in the inspiring environment of early summertime in Moscow. Traditionally, the workshop takes place at three locations: the Independent University of Moscow (3 days), the Steklov Mathematical Institute (2 days) and the Higher School of Economics (1 day). The Independent University is situated in one of picturesque areas of old downtown Moscow whereas the Steklov Mathematical Institute and the Higher School of Economics are situated near Leninsky Prospect --- one of the main Moscow streets --- and in the area where most of Academic Institutions and the Moscow State University are located.
Organizing Committee: Leonid Chekhov (Steklov and Poncelet), Sergei Lando (HSE), Igor Krichever (HSE and Columbia Univ.), Armen Sergeev (Steklov), Michael Tsfasman (Poncelet and IPPI), and Liza Kryukova (Poncelet).
We expect short series (2-3) of 1-hour-long lectures, 1-hour long research talks, and shorter 30-minutes talks of younger researchers.
The registration fee is 150 USD for foreign participants (paid upon arrival by those who can cover it from their grants or institutions) and 3000 roubles for participants from the FSU (also paid for those who can cover it from their grants). This covers also the welcome party and the conference dinner.
The organizers provide reasonable accommodation for free/budget price at the Guest House for visiting professors at the Higher School of Economics.
All nationals except for
some countries of the FSU need visas to enter
