This volume contains the proceedings of the conference `String-Math 2013' which was held June 17-21, 2013 at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University. This was the third in a series of annual meetings devoted to the interface of mathematics and string theory. Topics include the latest developments in supersymmetric and topological field theory, localization techniques, the mathematics of quantum field theory, superstring compactification and duality, scattering amplitudes and their relation to Hodge theory, mirror symmetry and two-dimensional conformal field theory, and many more. This book will be important reading for researchers and students in the area, and for all mathematicians and string theorists who want to update themselves on developments in the math-string interface.Punchline 2 ([FFRS2, CR2]). The orbifold procedure of Section 1 via the defect AG only depends on the fact that AG has the structure of a (symmetric) separable Frobenius algebra. The construction works in exactly the same way for any defect anbsp;...
