Maxim Grigoriev

Scientific interests of Maxim Grigoriev involve mathematical foundations of gauge systems (constrained dynamics and symmetries,  Batalin-Vilkovisky quantization) higher-spin gauge theories and holography,  superstring sigma models and  noncommutative theories. He proposed the so-called parent formulation of general gauge theories which systematically unifies Batalin-Vilkovisky and Hamiltonian BRST approaches  into a unique formalism which has the structure of (generalized) Alexandrov-Kontsevich-Schwartz-Zaboronsky  (AKSZ) sigma-model, which is especially useful in the context of diffeomorphism-invariant theories and higher spin holography.

Dmitry Levkov

Dr. Levkov is a research fellow of ITMP and Institute for Nuclear Research RAS. His scientific interests are shared between cosmology of ultra-light dark matter, black hole physics, instantons and semiclassical description of nonperturbative transitions in quantum field theory. He and his collaborators for the first time computed the probability of baryon number violation in electroweak particle collisions at colliders, were first to describe kinetic Bose-Einstein condensation of light dark matter due to gravitational interactions.
