The presence of organic molecules in the interstellar medium has been known since the 1970’s, but their complexity and the range of environments where they are found continues to increase. In tandem, theories for interstellar chemistry have become more elaborate in order to explain observations. In this talk I will present the evolving theory of complex molecule formation and show recent observational results that might challenge previous paradigms. I will also discuss how molecular isotopic ratios can be used to trace the origin of organic Solar System matter to typical interstellar conditions.
At the present time it is unknown how the U(1) axial anomaly of Quantum Chromodynamics behaves at high temperatures. We therefore want to look for thermal changes of the effects of the anomaly. For example, by studying the properties of the eta-prime meson at high temperatures it would be possible to deduce important information on the axial anomaly, thanks to the deep connection between them. In this thesis the width of the eta-prime as a function of the temperature is studied in the framework of large-N_c Chiral Perturbation Theory, at next-to-leading order, and in the corresponding Resonance Chiral Theory.
The idea of identifying string propagation in geometric singularities with certain gauge theories, is known as “geometric engineering”. In this series of talks I will introduce this construction and I will use it to obtain a number of supersymmetric gauge theories in four and five dimensions. Finally, I will review the recently proposed classification of six-dimensional superconformal field theory.
