Discrete Models in Geometry and Mathematical Physics

11-21 September 2017

(arrival 10 September, departure 21 September)

Venue: Institute of Mathematics at TU Berlin

This summer school combines various current research topics in geometry and mathematical physics, the unifying theme being the role of discrete models and of intelligent discretization methods. A diverse program of introductory lecture series will treat subjects ranging from integrability of discrete models, discrete differential geometry and its application in computer graphics to conformal dynamics, cluster algebras and discrete models in quantum field theory.

The summer school is aimed at graduate students in mathematics. Postdocs are also encouraged to attend.
