6th Annual Cantrell Lectures

Sir Michael Atiyah  University of Edinburgh

"Physics, Geometry and Space"

In the past 25 years there have been remarkable and quite unexpected developments in geometry originating in quantum theory. Professor Atiyah will outline the fascinating story which still continues, and involves the latest ideas in fundamental physics. This lecture is aimed at a general audience interested in science.

Knots and polynomials

Abstract: We will describe certain invariants of knots in three dimensional space and give an impressionistic view of how they relate to physics, algebra and analysis. The notion of subfactor will be introduced.
