Knot theory is an important branch of low-dimensional topology, with deep connections in algebraic geometry, combinatorics, quantum algebra and other areas of pure and applied mathematics. Several Fields medals have been awarded to this particular research area and various academic conferences and colloquia have been held in China in the past.

In recent years applications to physics, biology, chemistry and other fields in classical and quantum field theory have become increasingly important leading to new discoveries in cosmology, plasma physics, solar physics, superfluid turbulence, geometric optics, phase defects, magnetized systems, DNA biology and quark confinement. Physical knot theory is now at the cutting edge of current research in mathematical physics and applied mathematics, and many colloquia and workshops have been held worldwide, but not in China. In this regard the proposed School + Workshop dedicated to modern advances in topological classical field theory with applications to fluid mechanics, magneto-hydrodynamics, geometric optics and defects in superfluids and condensates to be held at the Beijing University of Technology (BJUT) will be the first international event of this kind.

The School will host 7 world-class international experts in the field, who will deliver lectures and problem classes to an audience of local and international young researchers and post-docs from China and abroad, with the aim to promote an interdisciplinary approach to innovative and promising new lines of contemporary research. The School will be organized during a 10-day period during which a two-day international workshop will take place, giving the opportunity to specialists from China and the rest of the world to meet and present new results.

  • Summer School: September 2-6 (Monday to Friday) & 9-11 (Monday to Wednesday) with 6-hour course lectures and 3-hour problem classes for each lecture course.
  • Workshop: September 7-8 (Saturday and Sunday), with oral presentations and posters. Participation of young researchers and junior doctoral students will be strongly encouraged to take part and contribute.


Date & Venue

  • Date:      September 2‒11, 2019.
  • Venue:   Teaching Building 4, Beijing University of Technology (Pingleyuan, Beijing).
