In the second installment of our interview with Edward Frenkel, we almost closed down, and then Jes remembered about the Langland duality – and asked for a breakdown by Frenkel himself, on the math of quantum physics, number theory, category theory, etc. He does a much better job than I am now. That’s why we asked him.
Also – In terms of general interviewing, we’ve learned that having a conversation by far outweighs any list of canned questions we could ever come up with. We thank Frenkel again, for the great conversation and once again, this is Jes and Jen, signing off with another awesome discussion with Edward Frenkel.
