Electric-Magnetic Duality and the Geometric Langland's Programme, 13-24 August 2007

Master Class, by Anton Kapustin (Caltech)

Overview poster for the Master Classes in 2007

The Montonen-Olive conjecture states that N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories with gauge groups G and {}^LG are isomorphic. It can be viewed as a nonabelian version of the electric-magnetic duality of the Maxwell theory. I will explain how to deduce the central statements of the geometric Langlands program from the Montonen-Olive duality. Certain generalizations of the Montonen-Olive duality and their mathematical implications will also be discussed.


The schedule for the Master Class is as follows:
Every weekday from Monday 13 till Friday 24 August,
Aud. G1, Bldg. 1532, 1st floor
10:00-10:45 Lecture
10:45-11:15 Coffee Break
