Title: A Landscape in Boundary String Field Theory
Date: Tue, Mar 04, 2014, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: String field theory is a non-perturbative formulation of string theory allowing one to explore string theory vacua and off-shell structure. We solve the equation of motion of boundary string field theory with stringy massive states, and find a large number of new non-perturbative vacua. Possible cosmological applications and generalization of Sen's conjecture on D-brane annihilation are discussed.
