  • September 21-23, 2015 Conference "New Mathematical Methods in Today's Physics: Logical, Epistemological and Computational Aspects"


Over the last few decades there were a number of important attempts to apply the new 20-th century mathematics in physics. Mathematics in its turn borrowed from physics many important ideas and motivations. During the planned Conference these developments will be discussed and scrutinized from various viewpoints including logical, epistemological and historical ones. The Conference will bring together physicists, mathematicians and philosophers working on mathematical foundations of physics. We aim, in particular, at developing a new theoretical and pragmatic perspective on the famous problem of "unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences" stressed by E. Wigner back in 1960. We hope that this event will help to strengthen conceptual ties between mathematics and logic, on the one hand, and physics and other natural sciences, on the other hand.
