Teaching Associate, School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences - Division of Physics & Applied Physics

Mr Lim Kim Song

I graduated with a Mathematics degree from NUS in 1996 and obtained my M.Sc from NTU SPMS, Mathematical Science Department in 2014. My master thesis is on the Verification and Discretization of the Atiyah-Singer Index theory on a two dimensional Dirac operator. I like to see the application of mathematics in physics and currently have some interest in string theory, index theory and symplectic geometry. In general I'm interested in doing research and teaching.
Research Interests
I'm interested in the interaction between Geometry, Topology and Physics.

Currently, I've some interest in string theory, in particular on the compactification of Superstring and M theory via threefold Calabi-Yau manifold in complex geometry as well as its mirror counterpart in symplectic geometry.

Understanding relativity, classical and quantum mechanics through symplectic geometry are also some of my wishes.

I'm also keen to look at the application of the Atiyah-Singer Index theorem to resolve anomalies that arises in theoretical physics, especially those appear in (two dimensional) conformal field and gravitational theory.
