MS Seminar (Mathematics - String Theory)

Speaker: Yuji Tachikawa (IPMU)
Title: 6 = 4+2
Date: Tue, Mar 01, 2011, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: In the last few years, it was realized that the partition functions of 4d supersymmetric gauge theories can be mapped to the correlation functions of 2d CFTs. In the talk, it will be argued that this relation is best understood from the point of view of a mysterious 6d theory.
