Topological Solitons Seminar: Instantons and Killing spinors
19 October 2011 13:00 in CM221
Instanton equations in n dimensions (where n>4) where introduced 30 years ago. They appear naturally in Yang-Mills theory and supergravity, and also in recent attempts to generalise the Donaldson invariants. I will discuss some new examples of Yang-Mills instantons on spheres and Euclidean planes (and more generally, on manifolds with real Killing spinors and their cones).
