Ruprecht-Karls-Universit�t Heidelberg

Seminar on {Math., Phys.}/2

-- DISCONTINUED --

This seminar was an informal semi-regular meeting of grad students in physical mathematics and mathematical physics at Heidelberg University. Talks feature advances on our own line of work, as well as recent developments at the intersection of string theory, geometry and topology. Anyone interested is cordially invited to join us.
