(UK) North British Mathematical Physics Seminar
Four seminars are held in rotation every year.
An Introduction to Noncommutative Geometry
A set of lecture notes by Joseph C. Varilly on noncommutative geometry and its applications in physics.
Complex Geometry of Nature and General Relativity
A paper by Giampiero Esposito attempting to give a self-contained introduction to holomorphic ideas in general relativity. The main topics are complex manifolds, spinor and twistor methods, heaven spaces.
Differential Equations and Oscillations
Many problems in physics are described by differential equations. As a complete discussion of differential equations is beyond the scope of this chapter we will deal only with linear first and second order ordinary differential equations.
A simple review of the powerful technique of dimensional analysis.
Doing Physics with Quaternions
A research effort to see how much of standard physics can be done using only quaternions, a 4-dimensional division algebra.
Euclidean Geometric Transforms for Physics
A new method of correlating physics formulas to derive one formula from a related formula using Euclidean geometry to represent the inter-relationship of physics formulas.
Five Lectures on Soliton Equations
A self-contained review by Edward Frenkel of a new approach to soliton equations of KdV type.
Geometry and Duality
Lecture notes from the ITP miniprogram on Geometry and Duality
Holomorphic Methods in Mathematical Physics
This set of lecture notes by Brian C. Hall gives an introduction to holomorphic function spaces as used in mathematical physics. The emphasis is on the Segal-Bargmann space and the canonical commutation relations.
Homological Methods in Mathematical Physics
These lecture notes by Joseph Krasil'shchik and Alexander Verbovetsky are a systematic and self-contained exposition of the cohomological theories naturally related to partial differential equations.
Inexplicable Secrets of Creation
Relationships between number theory and physics.
Lectures on Orientifolds and Duality
Notes by Atish Dabholkar on orientifolds emphasizing applications to duality.
Local Quantum Physics Crossroads
An international forum for information exchange among scientists working on mathematical, conceptual, and constructive problems in local relativistic quantum physics (LQP).
Numerical codes are provided for a variety of problems. From the University of Puerto Rico at Humacao.
On Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, Truth and Reality
How mathematics exists in the universe and is related to physical reality.
On the Origins of Twister Theory
A new approach pioneered by Roger Penrose, starting with conformally-invariant concepts, to the synthesis of quantum theory and relativity.
Open Problems in Mathematics and Physics
Links to open problems in mathematics, physics and other subjects.
Period and Energy in One Degree of Freedom Systems
An article by Jorge Rezende, University of Lisbon.
Recent Developments in Skyrme Models
An introduction by T. Gisiger and M.B. Paranjape to recent, more mathematical developments in the Skyrme model. The aim is to render these advances accessible to mainstream nuclear and particle physicists.
Resources at Heriot-Watt University. Meetings, local and other links.
Symplectic Geometries in Quantum Physics and Optics
A comparison of symplectic geometry with Euclidean or unitary geometries in quantum physics and optics
This Week's Finds in Mathematical Physics
This is a column written about modern topics in mathematical physics.
Topology and Physics
An essay by C. Nash on the historical connection between topology and physics.
