    “From Nambu bracket to String/M Theory?”

In July 2015, we as the physics community were greatly saddened by the news

that Prof. Yoichiro Nambu had passed away.  He proposed many of the fundamental

concepts that underlie our current understanding in theoretical sciences.  On this occasion,we’d like to discuss the relevance of Nambu’s concepts and how they will be developed in many areas of science, and promote interdisciplinary collaborations among

theoretical sciences. The joint workshop of Osaka CTSR - RIKEN iTHES - Kavli IPMU is a successive series following the symposium held at Kavli IPMU last year.
