"From quantum integrable systems to M-theory"
by Professor Andrei Okounkov
Abstract: Quantum integrable systems play a very important role in modern enumerative geometry (especially after the work of Nekrasov and Shatashvili). After reviewing some classical examples of how this works, we will talk about topics on the frontiers of our current knowledge, in particular, about those coming from the still mysterious M-theory. The talk will be based on a joint work with Nikita Nekrasov and Davesh Maulik.
