## Quantum Fields and Strings: A Course for Mathematicians, Part 2Pierre Deligne, Pavel I. Etingof, Daniel S. Freed, Lisa C. Jeffrey, David Kazhdan Ideas from quantum field theory and string theory have had considerable impact on mathematics since the 1980s. Advances in many different areas have been inspired by insights from physics. In 1996-97 the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton, NJ) organized a special year-long programme designed to teach mathematicians the basic physical ideas which underlie the mathematical applications. |
