E 01 (Lab 4)

Title: Strings from Massive Higher Spins: The Asymptotic Uniqueness of the Veneziano Amplitude

Abstract: We are going to discuss the recent paper by Simon Caron-Huot, Zohar Komargodski, Amit Sever and Alexander Zhiboedov  "Strings from Massive Higher Spins: The Asymptotic Uniqueness of the Veneziano Amplitude". Dorian Weissman will be leading the discussion. 

QG group meeting: TQFT and Asymptotic Symmetries

Monday, June 8, 2020 - 15:30
E01 (Lab 4)

Title : TQFT and Asymptotic symmetries

Speaker: Vyacheslav  Lysov

Abstract: I will provide an introduction to topological quantum field theories (TQFT) and their generalization - Extended TQFT. Using the TQFT framework I am going to discuss the behaviour of Hilbert spaces, associated to the  boundary components, under the gluing.

Novel Perspectives in String Phenomenology

Monday, June 1, 2020 - 17:00
Zoom Meeting Link https://oist.zoom.us/j/99829544220
Title: Novel Perspectives in String Phenomenology
 
Speaker: Alon E. Faraggi, University of Liverpool, UK
 
Abstract:

I will review the structure of the fermionic Z2xZ2 orbifolds that produced a large space of phenomenological three generation models. I will discuss the trial and error old school method that gave rise to the first known string derived MSSM models, as well as the more modern classification methods that enables the analysis of large spaces of vacua and extraction of some of the global properties underlying them, e.g. spinor--vector duality. I will discuss a new direction of research that was initiated over the past year. Since the mid-eighties it is known that in addition to the ten dimensional tachyon free heterotic-string vacua there exist tachyonic ten dimensional vacua. In the supersymmetric and non-supersymmetric tachyon free cases the ten dimensional tachyon are projected out by the same projection. I will discuss the construction of phenomenological tachyon free models starting from the tachyonic 10D vacua and their particular features.
