Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: "NS5-Branes, T-Duality and Worldsheet Instantons"
29 April 2002 00:00 in CM221
"T-Duality of string theory is conjectured to relate NS5-branes to pure geometry. In this talk I will show how to prove this duality from the perspective of the string worldsheet. Instanton effects play an important role and, remarkably, the result also yields new information about vortex solutions to the abelian Higgs model."
