SEMINAR: Physics Seminar

Today's date is Tuesday, March 09, 2021
Physics Seminar : GEOMETRY and SIGMA-MODELS Other events...
I will try to describe what nonlinear sigma-models are and how they allow the study of geometry. After explaining some physical motivations for the study of these models, I will review actions and symmetries (including supersymmetry) and symmetry algebras. On the math side, I will review Riemannian, Kahler, and hyperkahler geometry, and discuss quotients in all three contexts.

Seminar organisers: Professor Sergei Kuzenko, Physics; Winthrop Professor Cheryl Praeger, Mathematics
Speaker(s) Professor Martin Rocek (C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stony Brook University, USA)
