Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Non-Abelian Quantum Hall States: Matrix Models and More

Presented by Carl Turner, Cambridge University

10 February 2017 13:00 in CM221

After recapping the basics of the Quantum Hall Effect, I will discuss a series of papers in which we try and map out the phenomenon a little more carefully, in language more familiar to high-energy physicists. This means understanding precisely the relationship between bulk field theory models, boundary CFTs, ADHM-like matrix models and explicit quantum mechanical wavefunctions using approaches motivated by SUSY field theory and string theory. We even find an interesting testing ground for a wide class of new 3d dualities!
