ITMP Seminar "Recent developments in higher spin gravity"

ITMP Seminar
28 сентября 2022

Dear Colleagues,
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.

If you want to join the seminar please register here before 17:00, September 28 here.
