Abstract:
Date: 13/04/2015 - 3:00 pm

PIRSA:13100109  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Wilsonian and large N approaches to non-Fermi liquids
Speaker(s): Shamit Kachru
Abstract: We use Wilsonian RG and large N techniques to study the quantum field theory of a critical boson interacting with a Fermi surface, and compare/contrast the results with those coming from holography.

PIRSA:13100112  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Some simple extensions of Mathieu Moonshine
Speaker(s): Shamit Kachru
Abstract: Mathieu Moonshine is a striking and unexpected relationship between the sporadic simple finite group M24 and a special Jacobi form, the elliptic genus, which arises naturally in studies of nonlinear sigma models with K3 target.  In this talk, we first discuss its predecessor (Monstrou... read more

PIRSA:10050090  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
An isotropic to anisotropic transition in a fractional quantum Hall state
Speaker(s): Shamit Kachru
Abstract: I describe a novel abelian gauge theory in 2+1 dimensions which has surprising theoretical and phenomenological features. The theory has a vanishing coefficient for the square of the electric field $e_i^2$, characteristic of a quantum critical point with dynamical critical exponent $z=2$, and a leve... read more

PIRSA:07110003  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Stringy Instantons, Geometric Transitions, and Dynamical SUSY Breaking
Speaker(s): Shamit Kachru
Abstract: We describe simple systems where stringy instantons induce dynamical supersymmetry breaking, without any non-Abelian gauge dynamics. In suitable cases, a dual description via geometric transitions allows one to recast the instanton-generated superpotential as a classical flux superpotential. These s... read more
