[Seminar] "TOPOLOGICAL DEFECTS, DEFORMED LATTICES AND SPONTANEOUS SYMMETRY BREAKING" by Dr. Vincenzo Vitagliano

Tuesday, August 28, 2018 - 15:00 to 16:00
C756, Lab 3
Seminar

Speaker: Dr. Vincnezo Vitagliano from Keio University

Abstract:
External conditions have a dramatic impact on the way dynamical symmetry breaking occurs. I will review some recent (and some less recent) results of symmetry breaking in curved spacetime. Flirting with the contemporary interest toward 2D engineered material, I will then move on potential applications on geometrically deformed lattices. In a curved background, the natural expectation is that curvature works toward the restoration of an internal symmetry. I will show instead that, for topological defects, the competing action of the locally induced curvature and of boundary conditions generated by the non-trivial topology allows configurations where symmetries can be spontaneously broken close to the core.
