Title: Geometry and Physics

Speaker: Shing-Tung Yau (Harvard University)

Abstract: The recent discovery of gravitational wave is a triumph of the theory of Einstein who proposed that gravity should be looked at as effects of curvature of space-time. We will discuss how the interplay of geometry and physics has lead to stunning advances of our understanding of space.
