The Versatility of Integrability

Celebrating Igor Krichever's 60th Birthday

A Conference on Integrable Systems in Algebra,
Geometry, and Physics

Columbia University, May 4–7, 2011


Igor Krichever Ideas and methods of integrable systems played a key role in many celebrated as well as recent advances in algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, probability, and many other areas of pure and applied mathematics. The conference will bring together experts and young researchers, mathematicians and physicists, people with different backgrounds and different takes on integrable systems, to discuss the latest achievements in this very dynamic field.
