MS Seminar (Mathematics - String Theory)

Speaker: Ernesto Lupercio (CINVESTAV)
Title: Nearly Frobenius Structures and Quantum Field Theory.
Date: Tue, Feb 23, 2010, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room D
Abstract: FIRST 20 Minutes:

In this introductory talk for a general audience I will explain some of the relations between Quantum Field Theory and Topology and how each informs the other in unexpected ways.

SECOND PART:

In this talk I will discuss generalizations of the concept of Frobenius Algebra (Frobenius Manifold, etc) motivated initially by String Topology. I will review first the classical story and then go on to report on work by Gonzalez, Segovia, Uribe and myself.
