[Topology and Geometry Seminar] “Gauge theory and topology of manifolds ” by Dr Tirasan Khandhawit
The seminar aims to introduce research topics in topology, geometry and its interactions with other sciences. Anyone interested in mathematics is welcome to attend.
This week, Dr Tirasan Khandhawit (postdoc in the Tsvietkova Unit) will speak on "Gauge theory and topology of manifolds".
Abstract: In this talk, I will try to introduce the field of gauge theory in low-dimensional topology. Examples of classic 4-dimensional results from Donaldson's theory and Seiberg-Witten theory will be discussed. If time permitted, I will also talk about recent developments.
