My name is Ákos Nagy, I am a mathematician, and I was born and raised in Szekszárd, Hungary. I received my Ph.D. from Michigan State University in May, 2016. My advisor was Tom Parker.
Currently I am a William W. Elliott Assistant Research Professor of Mathematics at Duke University, where my mentors are Mark Stern and Robert Bryant. I am also a Research Collaborator in the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics of the Hungarian Academy of Science.
Before coming to North Carolina, I was a postdoc at the University of Waterloo and the Fields Institute, where my mentors were Benoit Charbonneau and Spiro Karigiannis, respectively.
I co-organize the Geometry & Topology Seminar at Duke (with Ziva Myer).
past and current projects, and future plans
My main interests are geometric analysis, gauge theory, and mathematical physics. More concretely, I usually deal with elliptic PDE's coming from physics and/or gauge theories.
Here are the projects that I am currently working on:
Preprints are coming "soon".
BPS monopoles with nonmaximal symmetry breaking, in particular their moduli spaces and Nahm transforms.
This is a joint project with Benoit Charbonneau.
The L2-geometry of moduli spaces in gauged nonlinear sigma models (Hamiltonian Gromov–Witten theory).
This is a joint project with Nuno Romão.
Kapustin–Witten equations on ALF manifolds, and Kapustin–Witten monopoles on ℝ3.
This is a joint project with Steve Rayan and Gonçalo Oliveira.
I am also learning about Higgs bundles, gauge theory on G2 and Spin(7) manifolds, supersymmetry, and noncommutative instantons.
You can find out more about my research on arXiv, Google Scholar, or ORCID.
