Informal HEP Journal club: Quantum algebraic description of D-branes on group manifolds

Presented by Harold Steinacker (Munich),

4 April 2002 00:00 in CM219

"We propose an algebraic description of (untwisted) D-branes on compact group manifolds G using quantum algebras related to U_q(g). It reproduces all known characteristics of stable branes in th WZW models, in particular their configurations in G, energies as well as the set of harmonics. Both generic and degenerate branes are covered."

**Special Seminar** 2pm at CM221
