Informal HEP Journal club: E10 - searching for a fundamental symmetry of physics

Presented by Hermann Nicolai, Albert-Einstein-Institute

14 December 2009 13:00 in CM221

The search for a consistent theory of quantum gravity unifying
the fundamental interactions may well require understanding the symmetry
structures underlying this still unknown theory (sometimes called
"M theory"). There are indications that the maximally extended hyperbolic
Kac--Moody algebra E10 may play a key role in this search, which I will
review at an introductory level in this talk.
