Derived representation schemes

Speaker: 
Giovanni Felder
Department: 
ETH, Zurich
Time: 
2015-03-18 13:30 - 14:30
Location: 
Polhemsalen, Ångströmlaboratoriet
Type : 
Theoretical Physics

Representation schemes parametrize representations of associative algebras on a given vector space. I will review a derived version of this theory, due to Berest, Khachatryan and Ramadoss, and present simple examples, such as the algebra of polynomials in two variables, featuring phenomena that are visible in computer experiments, and only partly understood mathematically. I will explain the relation with instanton partition functions of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theory on R^4xS^1 and with constant term identities. (Based on joint work with Y. Berest, A. Patotski, A. Ramadoss and T. Willwacher)

Higher Spins & Strings

Speaker: 
Matthias Gaberdiel
Department: 
ETH, Zurich
Time: 
2015-03-18 15:00 - 16:00
Location: 
Polhemsalen, Ångströmlaboratoriet
Type : 
Theoretical Physics

The conjectured relation between higher spin theories on anti de-Sitter (AdS) spaces and weakly coupled conformal field theories is reviewed. I shall then outline the evidence in favour of a concrete duality of this kind, relating a specific higher spin theory on AdS3 to a family of 2d minimal model CFTs. Finally, I shall explain how this relation fits into the framework of the familiar stringy AdS/CFT correspondence.
