ITMP Seminar "Shift Symmetries, Equivalence of EFTs and Time-Like Extra Dimensions"

ITMP Seminar
5 февраля 2024

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, Feb 7, 18:00 (Moscow time). It will be organised via Zoom.

Speaker: Prof. Kurt Hinterbichler, Case Western Reserve University

Title: Shift Symmetries, Equivalence of EFTs and Time-Like Extra Dimensions

Abstract: Poincare invariant effective field theories can have extended shift symmetries that indicate the spontaneous breaking of higher dimensional spacetime symmetries. Such theories are often the result of geometric actions describing the worldvolume dynamics of branes fluctuating in higher dimensions. I will review how these symmetries are classified and how the dynamics of the effective theories are expected to be determined solely by their degrees of freedom and symmetry breaking patterns. I will describe an example where a brane probing a spacelike extra dimension is equivalent to one probing a timelike extra dimension.

If you want to join the seminar please register here before 16:00, February 7 here.
