The deformation space of topological string theories

QMAP Seminar

Speaker: Daniel Krefl, UC Berkeley
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Thu, Oct 18 2012, 3:10PM

I will review the Omega-deformation (also known as Beta-deformation or refinement) of N=2 gauge- and string-theories from a c=1 non-critical string moduli space perspective. Special emphasis will be put on the decompactification point there a notion of quantum geometry emerges.
