Title: Little string theories via F-theory
Date: Thu, Dec 10, 2015, 11:00 - 12:15
Place: Balcony A
Abstract: Little string theories are UV complete non-local 6D theories decoupled from gravity in which there is an intrinsic string scale. I will present a systematic approach to the construction of supersymmetric little string theories via F-theory. This is joint work with Lakshya Bhardwaj, Michele Del Zotto, Jonathan Heckman, Tom Rudelius, and Cumrun Vafa.
