21 February - 21 February
"High-Energy Behavior of Scattering Amplitudes in Theories with Purely Virtual Particles" by Dr. Marco Piva, University of Warsaw
Starts at 18:00
We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, Sep 28, 18:00 (Moscow time). It will be arranged via zoom.
Speaker: Evgeny Skvortsov, University of Mons
Title: Recent developments in higher spin gravity
Abstract: Firstly, I will review main ideas behind higher spin gravity and well-known obstructions to constructing such theories in flat and anti-de Sitter spaces. I will give a short list of theories that avoid these no-go's. In the main part, I will present in detail Chiral higher spin gravity, which is the only consistent model with propagating massless fields at present: action, quantum checks, consistent truncations, applications to AdS/CFT and 3d bosonization duality. If time permits, I will discuss appications of higher spin symmetries to 3d bosonization.
