SUMMARY:Bhaumik Lecture: "Integrability and Four-Dimensional Gauge Theory"
DESCRIPTION:Integrability and Four-Dimensional Gauge Theory” by Edward Witten \nSome years ago\, Kevin Costello introduced a new approach to the Yang-Baxter equation and integrable systems based on an unusual gauge theory in four dimensions. The gauge theory in question is a close cousin of three-dimensional Chern-Simons theory\, which almost thirty years ago was related to knot invariants and three-manifold invariants and has had a variety of physical applications. The Yang-Baxter equation has a conspicuous analogy with knot theory\, but prior to Costello’s work\, it was unclear how the gauge theory/knot theory connection could be extended to the Yang-Baxter equation and integrability. The talk will be an introduction to Costello’s approach\, drawing also on recent work by Costello\, Masahito Yamazaki\, and the speaker.
