CPT Student Seminar: Deformation quantization of non-geometric string theory

Presented by Dionysios Mylonas, Heriot-Watt

2 June 2014 17:00 in OC218

Non-geometric spaces arise as consistent string theory backgrounds in p-form flux compactifications. In this talk I will explain how these spaces can be geometrised using membrane models. I will then show how to perform quantization using various deformation quantization techniques and discuss topics such as nonassociative field theory.

A gathering of mathematicians from the CPT group with physicists from IPPP, we meet to discuss our work in a relaxed and friendly environment.
