Emphasis YearThe Emphasis Year is designed to investigate particular topics in mathematics over the course of an academic year. The organizers are NU Math faculty members John Francis, Gus Schrader, and Boris Tsygan. The 2021-2022 Emphasis Year is focused on Homotopical Methods in Geometry and Physics.
In honor of NU Mathematics faculty member Ezra Getzler’s sixtieth birthday, the 2022 conference Homotopical Methods in Geometry and Physics will take place March 21–25 at Northwestern University. It will be preceded by a mini-school on Open-Closed Field Theories that will take place March 19–20.
