Title: How Domain Walls of N=1, D=4 SYM look like
Speaker: Dmitri Sorokin, University of Padua, Italy
Abstract: We review main features of the pure N=1, D=4 SYM with the gauge group SU(N) and its effective description by the Veneziano-Yankielowicz generalized sigma-model. We then indicate that the construction of BPS domain walls interpolating between different SYM vacua requires the presence of a dynamical membrane source. We will show how such a membrane is coupled to the SYM and present the explicit form of BPS domain walls which it creates in the Veneziano-Yankielowicz effective theory. In particular, we will describe 1/2 BPS domain wall configurations with |k| less than or equal to N/3, where k is the membrane charge that sets the "distance" between two distinct SUSY vacua.
Title: Quantization of folded strings in non-critical dimensions
Speaker: Dorin Weissmann
Abstract: I will talk about some problems that arise when attempting to quantize rotating strings semiclassically, in the critical and non-critical dimensions. The problems are divergences associated with folding points in the string. A rotating closed string is a basic system that suffers from this problem, and I show how we deal with it by treating the fold as a boundary and placing mass terms there. Based on an upcoming paper with J. Sonnenschein.
