Fifth International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Physics

24 – 28, April 2006
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
In recent years, new and intriguing mathematical techniques have found wide application in Theoretical Physics. Topics like Number Theory, Zeta Regularization, Riemann Surfaces, Cohomology, Fibre Bundles, Non-Commutative Geometry, etc., previously restricted to Pure Mathematics, now are being applied in Physics. On the other hand, the rising of Superstring Theory and K- and M-Theories motivated the employement of greater mathematical rigour in problems of Theoretical Physics. Particularly in Brazil, the number of researchers involved in problems like Topological Casimir Effect, Field Theory in Curved Spaces, Topological Defects, M-Theory, etc. is growing steadly over the last ten years. This conference aims to present the latest advances in Mathematical Methods to researchers, post-doctors, and graduate students acting in the areas of Physics of Particles and Fields, Mathematical Physics and Applied Mathematics. It happens since 1999, previously in the form of Schools, within a period of approximately two years, and is already established as a relevant event in Mathematical Physics in Brazil. About 50 participants attended the first, second and third editions, coming from several geographic regions of Brazil and from foreign countries. The last edition was attended by about 100 people. The main goal of the Fifth International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Physics (IC2006) is to promote updating of knowledge and interaction between mathematicians and theoretical physicists, through plenary sessions (1 hour) and seminars (30 minutes). Particular emphasis will be given to the following topics: Diferential Methods and Algebraic Geometry, Non-Commutative Geometry, Topological Field Theory, String Theory, Quantum Gravity and Cosmology. IC2006 will also include discussion sessions, between the participants, encouraging open discussion on the themes of the conference.
