Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Brane embeddings and applications on holographic dimers
18 November 2011 13:00 in CM221
We begin with describing brane embeddings in a class of particular backgrounds within string theory. We discuss some previously missed cases and compare our results with older works. Next, we show how to construct dimers in a holographic manner. Finally, we demonstrate the relevance of our results in that context and discuss possible extensions.
