Recent years have witnessed an explosion in the development of gauge theories on `noncommutative' or `quantum' manifolds (i.e. spaces whose algebra of functions is no longer commutative). Notable successes include a description of the Standard Model of particle physics in pure noncommutative-geometric terms and the construction of moduli spaces of self-dual gauge fields (instantons) on certain noncommutative spaces.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together an elite collection of expert mathematicians and physicists to present topics which represent the cutting edge of research into gauge theories on noncommutative spaces, from both the algebraic and analytic points of view. In particular, the participants will discuss the following themes:
David E. Evans (Cardiff) | Nicolaas P. Landsman (Nijmegen) |
Norbert Poncin (Luxembourg) | Marc A. Rieffel (Berkeley) |
Pierre Schapira (Jussieu) | Martin Schlichenmaier (Luxembourg) |
Elmar Schrohe (Hannover) |
