Summer School 2020

Matrix Membranes and Emergent Spacetime

Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies
Summer School: June 13th – 19th
Workshop: June 20th – 22nd

The Summer School will cover:

  • Classical membranes and supermembranes
  • Diffeomorphism and area preserving diffeomorphism groups,
  • Dual supergravities and gauge/gravity duality
  • Non-commutative deformation of membranes to matrix membranes
  • IKKT type models
  • Low dimensional Yang-Mills and super Yang-Mills models
  • Higher-dimensional matrix/fuzzy branes and their geometry and gauge theory
  • Emergent spacetime hybrid Monte Carlo techniques
  • Supersymmetry on the lattice


  • Lecturer #1
  • Lecturer #2
  • Lecturer #3

Students are encouraged to participate in the workshop as well.
