'Center' for Geometry and Theoretical Physics
There is an active group in the mathematics and physics departments
which studies areas of theoretical physics where modern geometric
methods (algebraic geometry, differential geometry, symplectic geometry
and topology) play an important role. Not only are geometric methods
applied to theoretical physics, but there are often spinoffs in which
new insights into mathematics are gained from studying the physical
theories. The primary focus of this group at present is on string theory.
