Exact Solutions of 2d Supersymmetric Gauge Theories

Special Events

Speaker: Abhijit Gadde, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Mon, Jan 26 2015, 3:10PM

We study dynamics of two-dimensional non-abelian gauge theories with N=(0,2) supersymmetry that include N=(0,2) supersymmetric QCD and its generalizations. For a range of parameters where supersymmetry is not dynamically broken at low energies, we give a complete description of the low-energy physics in terms of 2d N=(0,2) SCFTs using anomaly matching and modular invariance.

Refreshments will be served in the room 20 minutes before the talk.
