Dear Colleagues,

 

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, June 10, at 18:00. The seminar will be arranged via Zoom. Please, find below the seminar information as well as information required for joining the meeting via Zoom.

 

Speaker: Dr. Riccardo Conti, Turin University

Topic: “Introduction to the TT̄ deformation”

Abstract: In this talk I will give a pedagogical introduction to a special irrelevant deformation of 2-dimensional Quantum Field Theories, the so-called TT̄ deformation, which has recently attracted the attention of the theoretical physics community due to the interesting links with string theory and the AdS/CFT correspondence. I will review some basic aspects of this deformation and describe the principal features of the deformed models both at classical and quantum level. Finally, I will briefly comment on other similar irrelevant deformations and present a series of interesting open questions that still wait for answers.

 

If you want to join the seminar please register here before 15:00, June 10.
