CPT Student Seminar: Noncommutative U(2) Instantons

Presented by Andy Iskauskas, Durham University

23 February 2015 17:00 in OC218

Instantons (static solutions to 5d Yang-Mills theory) may have great utility in unravelling the mysteries of M-theory, but are also interesting objects in their own right. In this talk, I'll motivate and describe the construction, dynamics and scattering of two instantons in a noncommutative space, where very different behaviour emerges compared to other known soliton solutions.
