Searches for particle physics beyond the Standard Model come in many forms, from searches for new particles at accelerators to gamma-ray and neutrino telescopes, cosmic ray detectors and ultra-clean experiments deep underground. Efforts to combine multiple search channels in 'global fits' to new physics scenarios typically consider only a subset of the available channels, and apply them to a very small range of possible theories. Astroparticle searches in particular are usually only included in a very approximate way, if at all. In this talk I will review recent progress in improving this situation, and preview some of the future developments and challenges in this field.
Starting with the simple problem of counting partitions I will illustrate how the quantum theory can explain some non-trivial mathematical facts. Then I will give a non-expert overview of recent advances in quantum field theory and their relations to interesting geometrical invariants. I will also outline some fundamental mathematical problems which are posed by quantum field theory.
