Add to Cal
  • Speaker: Constantine Papageorgakis (Rutgers University, Physics and Astronomy)
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 04/10/2013
  • Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

  • Location: Oskar Klein Conference Room (3481 Randall)

  • Description:

    We will review the connection between the six-dimensional (2,0) theory and maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills in five dimensions (MSYM). We will discuss the implications of a conjectured relation between the two, at all energy scales, for MSYM. We will also deconstruct MSYM from a four-dimensional circular quiver gauge theory and consider the possibility of instanton-solit?ons contributing to perturbative amplitudes.
