Moduli Spaces and the AdS/CFT correspondence


Speaker: Aaron Bergman, Texas A&M University
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Fri, Jan 5 2007, 4:10PM

In this talk, I will discuss the AdS/CFT conjecture from string theory and many of the mathematical structures that occur therein. In particular, I will give a precise mathematical prerequisite for the conjecture to hold and exploit it to prove a theorem regarding certain moduli spaces that arise in the study of the conjecture.
