Unification of integrability in supersymmetric gauge theories

QMAP Seminar

Speaker: Junya Yagi, Perimeter Institute
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Fri, Feb 15 2019, 11:00AM

The 8-vertex model and the XYZ spin chain have been found to emerge from gauge theories in various ways, such as 2d and 4d Nekrasov-Shatashvili correspondences, the action of surface operators on the supersymmetric indices of class-Sk theories, and correlators of line operators in 4d Chern-Simons theory. I will explain how string theory unifies these phenomena. This is based on my work with Kevin Costello [arXiv:1810.01970].
