With Edward Witten he discovered deep connections between the S-duality of supersymmetric gauge theories and the geometric Langlands correspondence.

With Anton Kapustin, he has made deep mathematical connections between S-duality of gauge theories and the geometric Langlands correspondence.

### Nikolai Kapustin

**Mykola Hirshevych Kapustin**

He is the son of the pianist-composer Nikolai Kapustin.

Theoretical physicist Anton Kapustin is his son.

### Geometric Langlands correspondence

**geometric Langlands correspondencegeometric Langlands programgeometric Langlands**

With Edward Witten he discovered deep connections between the S-duality of supersymmetric gauge theories and the geometric Langlands correspondence.

In a paper from 2007, Anton Kapustin and Edward Witten described a connection between the geometric Langlands correspondence and S-duality, a property of certain quantum field theories.

### John Preskill

Kapustin obtained a B.S. in physics from Moscow State University in 1993 and he received a Ph.D. in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1997 with John Preskill as his advisor.

### S-duality

**S-dualstrong-weak dualitymagnetic dual**

Recent work of Anton Kapustin and Edward Witten suggests that Montonen–Olive duality is closely related to a research program in mathematics called the geometric Langlands program.
