Asymptotic Fermionic Symmetry From Soft Gravitino Theorem

QMAP Seminar

Speaker: Vyacheslav Lysov, Caltech
Location: 432 Phys Dept
Start time: Thu, Mar 3 2016, 3:10PM

We discuss the semiclassical scattering problem for massless matter coupled to Rarita-Schwinger field in four dimensional Minkowski space. We rewrite the soft gravitino theorem as a Ward identity for the S-matrix and discuss the relationship of corresponding symmetry charges to new asymptotic fermionic symmetries of massless Rarita-Schwinger field.
