Laboratory of Geometrical Methods of Mathematical Physics named after N. N. Bogolyubov
This laboratory was established as part of a scientific research project supported with a monetary grant awarded by the Government of the Russian Federation under a grant competition designed to provide governmental support to scientific research projects implemented under the supervision of the world's leading scientists at Russian institutions of higher learning, research institutions of the governmental academies of sciences and governmental research centers of the Russian Federation (Resolution of the RF Government No.220 of April 9, 2010).
Scientific research area:
To create a world-class research laboratory specializing in one of the most rapidly growing areas of contemporary fundamental mathematics.
Key project objectives:
1. To research integrable differential equations and their disturbances;
2. To study applied algebraic geometry;
3. To study geometric applications of quantum physics;
4. To study non-commutative geometry and the theory of knots.
The key pedagogical objective of the project is to train a group of young highly skilled scientists, form research groups with their participation, and promote the new laboratory's international collaborations.
Anticipated project outputs:
The project will help develop new algorithms for numeric solutions and visualize solutions of an important class of nonlinear partial differential equations, which will find applications in fundamental and experimental physics and stimulate the development of new research areas in mathematics.
