Title:  String Duality and Mathematics

Abstract:  
The relationship between mathematics and physics has a long history. Traditionally, mathematics provides the language physicists use to describe Nature. In turn, physics brings mathematics to life, by providing inspiration and interpretation. String theory is changing the nature of this relationship. I will try to explain why, and give you a flavor of the emerging field.
