The International Center for Mathematical Sciences received a three-year grant from Simons Foundation

2022-06-28T11:46:00+03:00June 17th, 2022|News|

The good news was announced personally by Prof. Yuri Tschinkel, Director of Mathematics and Physical Sciences division of Simons Foundation, during his visit to Sofia. The Foundation funded a project of the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics for a period of three years. The funds will be used to organize international scientific forums with the participation of world-renowned and established mathematicians, to open new positions for researchers and to support scientists from Ukraine and other countries.

Workshop: New mathematical methods in solvable models and gauge/string dualities

2022-10-04T15:39:32+03:00May 26th, 2022|Conferences, News|

This workshop will be devoted to discussing important and timely problems concerning the application of exact mathematical methods to conventional integrable systems and to the gauge/string models, e.g., to extend current methods for calculating finite-volume matrix elements of operators, to construct a finite version of the hexagon form factor expansion for short operators, to extend the methods of the thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz to world-sheets of higher topology and to all sorts of boundaries and defects, etc.

Finiteness results for hyperkaehler manifolds – Ljudmila Kamenova

2022-06-21T11:20:05+03:00May 19th, 2022|Colloquium, News|

In this talk we are going to show that there are finitely many deformation types of hyperkaehler manifolds with fixed topological invariants such as the Fujiki constant and the discriminant of the BBF form. For hyperkaehler manifolds that admit a fibration structure it is enough to fix the degree of the polarization on the general fiber in order to obtain a finiteness result.
