ITMP Seminar "Unifying Constructions of Non-Invertible Symmetries"

ITMP Seminar
14 March 2023

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, Mar 15, 18:00 (Moscow time). It will be organised via Zoom.

Speaker: Dr. Lakshya Bhardwaj, University of Oxford

Title: Unifying Constructions of Non-Invertible Symmetries

Abstract: I will describe a unified perspective on various constructions of non-invertible symmetries, using the so-called theta defects. The study of theta defects is intricately tied to the study of equivariant TQFTs in mathematical physics, the study of symmetry protected topological phases of matter in condensed matter physics, and the study of higher-representations of groups and higher-groups in mathematics.


If you want to join the seminar please register here before 16:00, March 15 here.
