Title: Taming open/closed string duality with a Losev trick
Date (JST): Fri, Apr 23, 2010, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: First I will briefly review a few topics in topological strings, in particular I will discuss what are already known to be the effective space time theories corresponding to the open and closed B-model. The first goal will be to derive the complete action merging the two already presented and, as a check, computing some tree level amplitudes. Finally I will present a simple argument from BV formalism to obtain open-closed duality in our setup and its explicit tree level computation.
