Geometry and physics: Where are we going? (English) Zbl 0865.53063

Andersen, Jørgen Ellegaard (ed.) et al., Geometry and physics. Proceedings of the conference at Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark, 1995. New York, NY: Marcel Dekker. Lect. Notes Pure Appl. Math. 184, 1-7 (1997).
Summary: The aim of this talk is to give an overview of the interaction between geometry and physics. The talk will be in three parts: first a historical survey, then a look at several areas in mathematics which have benefited recently from interaction with physics, and finally a survey of some of the current challenges.
