ITMP seminar "Gauge/gravity duality and the phenomenology of hadrons"

ITMP seminar
29 Monday 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, July 8, at 18:00. The seminar will be arranged via Zoom. 


Speaker: Dr. Frederic Brunner, Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien)

Topic: Gauge/gravity duality and the phenomenology of hadrons

Abstract: I will give a pedagogical introduction to aspects of hadronic physics at low energy, and show how the methodology of gauge/gravity duality may be applied to certain problems arising in this context. As a concrete example, I will talk about the search for glueballs, bound states of gluons predicted by lattice gauge theory. These states have not been identified unambiguously among the hadrons we observe in collider experiments, in part due to the lack of theoretical predictions of their decay rates. I will show how gauge/gravity duality can be used to calculate glueball decay rates, and discuss potential implications.


If you want to join the seminar please register here before 15:00, July 8.
