Mathematical Physics Seminar

The seminars take place on Tuesday lunchtimes at 2:00 pm (mostly internal speakers) and Thursday afternoons from 4:15 pm (mostly external speakers, and preceded by coffee/tea from 4pm), in the relaxed atmosphere of Room G/109 in James College Nucleus. The typical length of the talks is about 1 hour.

Next talk:

Integrable boundary scattering in AdS3/CFT2 correspondences

Mathematical Physics Seminar
Date and time: 
May 5, 2016, 16:15 - 17:30
Andrea Prinsloo (Surrey)

I shall describe the Hopf superalgebra, and its right and left boundary coideal subalgebras, which encode the symmetries of bulk and boundary excitations of open spin-chains in certain AdS3/CFT2 correspondences. These integrable open spin-chain models arise from open superstrings ending on D-branes in AdS3 supergravity geometries. I shall describe the bulk scattering matrix, and a variety of right and left boundary scattering matrices, and discuss the conditions imposed by unitarity, parity and crossing symmetry on the bulk and boundary scale factors.
