have now added speakers, titles and abstracts for our first little workshop (public on zoom) which might be of interest to some readers here:
Homotopical Perspectives on TDA
Speakers: Chacholski, Ginot, Jardine & Zhou
Wasn’t there a mission statement some place? Was it the article, Sati and Schreiber 2021: ’Topological and Quantum Systems’, mentioned at computational trilogy?
Besides whats in the nLab entry now, there is the following paragraph on the center landing page here (the domain nyuad.nyu.edu
seems to have a hiccup right now, does it work for you?):
The Center for Quantum and Topological Systems serves as a nucleation point for cross-disciplinary expertise in theory and application of Quantum Topological Systems in general, with an emphasis towards the unifying goal of robust Quantum Computation in particular — combining all questions from theoretical foundations (quantum error-correction) over hardware (topological quantum materials and novel quantum chips), architecture (parameterized quantum circuits) and software (quantum programming languages and hardware-aware software optimizations) to applications (quantum machine learning and quantum cryptography)
have added pointer to the upcoming external talk:

Also, I am eager to add the list of names of our group of postdoc researchers who are arriving in the next weeks (or have already), but don’t want to say anything that may not be fully official yet. What I can safely say is that among them are are Adrian Clough, David Jaz Myers and Mitchell Riley.
Great team! Let me know when you need a philosopher.
with the summer break over, we are resuming next week. In the GTP-seminar wel’ll have:

Topological Modular Forms and Heterotic String Theory
In this talk, I will explain my works with Y. Tachikawa to study anomalies in heterotic string theory via homotopy theory, especially the theory of Topological Modular Forms (TMF). TMF is an E-infinity ring spectrum which is conjectured by Stolz-Teichner to classify two-dimensional supersymmetric quantum field theories in physics. In the previous work [arXiv:2108.13542], we proved the vanishing of anomalies in heterotic string theory mathematically using TMF. Additionally, we have a recent update on the previous work [arXiv:2305.06196]. Due to the vanishing result, we can consider a secondary transformation of spectra, which coincides with the Anderson self-duality morphism of TMF. This allows us to detect subtle torsion phenomena in TMF by differential-geometric methods.
As before, I’ll add (here) resources as they become available
