[Seminar] "Twistor formulation of particles with spin" by Dr. Satoshi Okano
Quantum Gravity Unit (Neiman Unit) would like to invite you to a seminar by Dr. Satoshi Okano from Nihon University
Title: Twistor formulation of particles with spin
Twistors defined for 4-dimensional Minkowski spacetime are useful variables to describe classical and quantum mechanics of relativistic particles. Lagrange mechanics of a relativistic particle with an arbitrary spin can be described in terms of twistors. On the other hand, twistors for (anti-)de Sitter spacetime have recently been studied by various authors. In this talk, I will explain my work on the twistor formulation of particles with spin in 4-dimensional Minkowski spacetime. I will also discuss their generalization to (anti-)de Sitter spacetime.
