Tuesday 23rd July : STP Seminar – Loop measures and isomorphism theorems for space-time random walks

Title: Loop measures and isomorphism theorems for space-time random walks Speaker: Dr. Stefan Adams (University of Warwick) Abstract: Loop measures have become important in the analysis of random walks and their applications in mathematical physics and are currently… Read More

Tuesday 25th June : STP Seminar – Proving 5D AGT conjecture and Duality under Changing Preferred Directions

Title: Proving 5D AGT conjecture and Duality under Changing Preferred Directions Speaker: Masayuki Fukuda (University of Tokyo) Abstract: We give a proof for the factorization property of the arbitrary matrix elements of the multi-valent intertwining operator (or refined… Read More

Thursday 20th June : STP Seminar – Noncommutative algebraic structures

Title: Noncommutative algebraic structures Speaker: Natalia Iyudu (University of Edinburgh) Abstract: I will talk on one particular structure called pre-Calabi-Yau algebra. It was introduced around 2005 in attempt to describe a TQFT in case of open strings. This… Read More

Tuesday 18th June : STP Seminar – Surface Operators in 4d/2d Duality on TQFT picture of 4d N=2 Argyres-Douglas Theories

Title: Surface Operators in 4d/2d Duality on TQFT picture of 4d N=2 Argyres-Douglas Theories Speaker: Ruidong Zhu (DIAS) Abstract: In this talk, I will first give a brief review on the TQFT picture of 4d N=2 supersymmetric gauge… Read More

Thursday 13th June : STP Seminar – Geometry of branes from matrix models

Title: Geometry of branes from matrix models Speaker: Takaki Matsumoto (DIAS) Abstract: Matrix models are conjectured to give non-perturbative and constructive formulations of string and M theories. In the matrix models, various branes such as strings or membranes… Read More
