By Radu Laza,Matthias Schütt,Noriko Yui

In contemporary years, study in K3 surfaces and Calabi–Yau kinds has visible amazing growth from either mathematics and geometric issues of view, which in flip maintains to have a tremendous impression and impression in theoretical physics—in specific, in string concept. The workshop on  mathematics and Geometry of  K3 surfaces and Calabi–Yau threefolds, held on the Fields Institute (August 16-25, 2011), aimed to offer a state of the art survey of those new advancements. This lawsuits quantity contains a consultant sampling of the huge diversity of themes lined through the workshop. whereas the topics variety from mathematics geometry via algebraic geometry and differential geometry to mathematical physics, the papers are clearly similar by means of the typical subject of Calabi–Yau forms. With the wide range of branches of arithmetic and mathematical physics touched upon, this region unearths many deep connections among matters 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 place to begin for the graduate scholars and different junior researchers, or as a consultant to the topic.
