ITMP seminar “Review on higher-spin theories”
10 April 2020

Dear Colleagues,

 

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 15, at 18:00. The seminar will be arranged either via Skype or via Zoom.

Speaker: Dr. Dmitry Ponomarev, ITMP

Topic: Review on higher-spin theories

Abstract: I will start by explaining what is meant by higher-spin theories. Then I will illustrate why making higher-spin fields interact is not easy. I will then review the standard no-go theorems for higher-spin interactions. Next, I will discuss different approaches to circumvent these no-go’s and review the most successful attempts. Finally, I will discuss some potentially promising directions for future research.

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