In fresh years, learn in K3 surfaces and Calabi–Yau forms has visible fantastic development from either mathematics and geometric issues of view, which in flip maintains to have a massive impression and influence in theoretical physics—in specific, in string conception. The workshop on  mathematics and Geometry of  K3 surfaces and Calabi–Yau threefolds, held on the Fields Institute (August 16-25, 2011), aimed to provide a state of the art survey of those new advancements. This lawsuits quantity features a consultant sampling of the wide variety of issues coated by means of the workshop. whereas the themes diversity from mathematics geometry via algebraic geometry and differential geometry to mathematical physics, the papers are evidently similar by means of the typical subject of Calabi–Yau types. With the wide variety of branches of arithmetic and mathematical physics touched upon, this region finds many deep connections among topics formerly thought of unrelated.

 

Unlike so much different meetings, the 2011 Calabi–Yau workshop began with three days of introductory lectures. a variety of four of those lectures is integrated during this quantity. those lectures can be utilized as a kick off point for the graduate scholars and different junior researchers, or as a consultant to the topic.
