I know I’ve been fairly bad about posting recently. Started teaching my first course. But that SHOULD end on Monday. Not the course, the silence. That’s when the Geometry of Quantum Fields summer school starts here at Penn.  For the first week, I’m going to be attempting to learn what a Conformal Field is with Katrin Wendland, and I’ll be attempting to blog about it.  The next week, I’m with Eric Sharpe, talking about Heterotic Compactifications and Quantum Cohomology.  The posts these next two weeks will be rather technical, but afterwards, I’ll probably attempt to distill them and provide some background and motivation beyond whatever else is covered.  Might also blog on some of the talks, but those are the two mentoring sessions I’m in, so they’ll be the most in-depth.
