## Spin (8,9,10), Octonions and the Standard Model

## Welcome and Opening Remarks

## SO(7,7) Structure of Standard Model Fermions

## SO(7,7) structure of the SM fermions

I will describe the relevant representation theory that allows to think of all components of fermions of a single generation of the Standard Model as components of a single Weyl spinor of an orthogonal group whose complexification is SO(14,C). There are then only two real forms that do not lead to fermion doubling. One of these real forms is the split signature orthogonal group SO(7,7). I will describe some exceptional phenomena that occur for the orthogonal groups in 14 dimensions, and then specifically for this real form.

## Formulations of General Relativity (Part 4 of 4)

The goal of this series is to collect various different formulations of General Relativity, with emphasis on four spacetime dimensions and formulations that use differential forms. The (non-exhaustive) list of formulations to be covered is per this plan:

Lecture 1): Motivations, followed by the usual Einstein-Hilbert to start with, first order Palatini, second order pure affine connection Eddington-Schroedinger.
