2013 - Fellow of the American Mathematical Society


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Geometry
  • Topology
  • Pure mathematics

Sheldon Katz mostly deals with Supersymmetry, Theoretical physics, Mathematical physics, Compactification and Pure mathematics. A large part of his Supersymmetry studies is devoted to Superpotential. In his study, Gaugino, Conifold, Symmetry and Weyl group is inextricably linked to Quiver, which falls within the broad field of Superpotential.

His Mathematical physics research incorporates themes from Quantum electrodynamics, Mirror symmetry and Moduli space. His studies deal with areas such as Quantum cohomology, SYZ conjecture, Toric variety and Riemann surface as well as Mirror symmetry. In the subject of general Pure mathematics, his work in Cohomology, Differential form and Fibered knot is often linked to Fibration, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Mirror Symmetry (1367 citations)
  • Mirror symmetry and algebraic geometry (865 citations)
  • Geometric engineering of quantum field theories (550 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Pure mathematics, Theoretical physics, Moduli space, Mirror symmetry and Mathematical physics. His Conifold and Heterotic string theory study, which is part of a larger body of work in Theoretical physics, is frequently linked to Duality, bridging the gap between disciplines. His study in Conifold is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Quiver and Superpotential.

The Moduli space study combines topics in areas such as Surface, Brane cosmology, Higgs boson and Gauge theory. His Mirror symmetry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Superstring theory, Toric variety and Weighted projective space. His work deals with themes such as Algebraic geometry and Monodromy, which intersect with Mathematical physics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pure mathematics (46.75%)
  • Theoretical physics (22.73%)
  • Moduli space (18.83%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Pure mathematics (46.75%)
  • Calabi–Yau manifold (14.29%)
  • Moduli space (18.83%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Sheldon Katz spends much of his time researching Pure mathematics, Calabi–Yau manifold, Moduli space, Compactification and Anomaly. His studies in Calabi–Yau manifold integrate themes in fields like F-theory, Structure, Cover and Orientation. His Moduli space study incorporates themes from Gauge theory, Mathematical physics, Tangent and Algebra.

His biological study deals with issues like Effective action, which deal with fields such as Supersymmetric gauge theory. As a part of the same scientific family, Sheldon Katz mostly works in the field of Anomaly, focusing on Moduli and, on occasion, Higgs field, Point, Brane cosmology and Nilpotent. His Homogeneous space study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quiver and Chern class.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • On Geometric Classification of 5d SCFTs (130 citations)
  • T-Branes and Geometry (101 citations)
  • The refined BPS index from stable pair invariants (95 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Geometry
  • Topology
  • Pure mathematics

His primary areas of investigation include Pure mathematics, Anomaly, Calabi–Yau manifold, Moduli space and Quantum cohomology. His study in Pure mathematics focuses on Conjecture in particular. Sheldon Katz combines subjects such as Compactification, F-theory, Boundary, Limit and Degenerate energy levels with his study of Calabi–Yau manifold.

His F-theory study is focused on Theoretical physics in general. Sheldon Katz interconnects Product and Algebra in the investigation of issues within Moduli space. His Quantum cohomology research incorporates elements of Sheaf cohomology, String and Quantum.
