강연주제: How Quantum Superstrings Count Classical Geometries
The superstring theory is more than a single model for a single universe, but admits countless possible solutions, often involving Calami-Yau manifolds as hidden internal geometry. This has lead to problems and controversies, but, from this immense diversity, emerge unexpected computational tools. In this talk, we will review one such prominent example, widely known by the name of Wall-Crossing, where the quantum nature of superstring theory solves enumerative problems of the modern geometry and supersymmetric path integrals are turned into exact counting tools, transforming the old quantum mechanics to a new kind of mathematics.
