The topological string beyond supersymmetryColloquium
|Speaker: ||Mina Aganagic, UC Berkeley|
|Location: ||1147 MSB|
|Start time: ||Tue, Oct 31 2006, 4:10PM|
Topological string theory has led to many exciting results at the intersection of mathematics and physics. This relied heavily on supersymmetry, which makes exact results possible. Today, a new picture is beginning to emerge, where the tools of the topological string are applicable to real world physics without supersymmetry.
