The Minkowski and conformal superspaces

QMAP Seminar

Speaker: Rita Fioresi, University of Bologna, Italy
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Tue, Feb 14 2012, 4:10PM

We want to study the Minkowski superspace in dimension 4|4 as the big cell inside the superflag manifold identified with the conformal superspace. The action of the Poincare' supergroup on the super Minkowski and the action of the conformal supergroup on its compactification will then appear very naturally. Real forms are also discussed. In the end we briefly examine the quantum deformation of all of the supergeometric objects we have constructed.
